Septenary Artist Profile: Jake Waldron
Jake is a sculpting master, there, we said it. The detail to his work is astounding. All the sculpts are original, the eyes cast and hand painted in several stages, the hair all hand punched, the clothes are hand sewn and the skin made eerily real. Who knows, they might even walk around the gallery at night when no one is looking.
Check out a few of Jake’s Work in progress shots to get a taste of how these creatures come to life. If you can, come visit them in person before the show ends! Show comes down August 9th.
All pieces for Septenary are available for viewing and purchase through the OhNo!Doom online gallery: http://shop.ohnodoom.com/collections/septenary

I was born in 1986. Grew up in Connecticut and ended up going to college in Boston in 2004. I started school as a photography major and ended up jumping around to things like circuit bending, electronics, and computer programming. I would do something for a few months then decide to move on to something new. Finally in late summer 2007 I started sculpting and have been doing it since. Other than that, I am a pretty boring person. http://jakewaldron.com/
