Go Fuck Yourself Records (Pendant Commission)

My neighbor, who at first I thought might be a problem neighbor because he heads up a local metal band called “Effigy” that also practised right next to our bedrooms, ended up being a solid guy that moved his jam space and became a friend that I could rely on. Anyway, he has a label called “Go Fuck Yourself Records” (the one in Toronto, not the one in Russia), and a while back he asked me to make a pendant for hit. He gave me a very rough drawing of the his idea for and I spent a couple days mulling it over and drawing rought sketches of my own. I mocked them up in photoshop and sent it to him with a nice bevel and a beat-up cracked and rusted metal texture. He asked if I could include that “aged” look in the final metal version, so when I sculpted it out of clay I tried to give it that surface. After getting the master plug perfect, I made a two part metal mold and cast a couple in metal. He’s happy with how it turned out (although at 3″ across, it’s quite heavy), and so am I. You can zoom in on the first picture.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
