The Sneer...

Here's a project I did for my buddy Wally Wingert, voice actor and the announcer of the Tonight Show!  He's got quite a collection at his home which he calls Planet Wallywood, it's a museum of memorabilia and collectables, a real walk down memory lane.  Included in his collection are some of  original costumes like the original Andy Kaufman costume on the mannequin shown.  He asked me to sculpt a snear on a head cast of Kaufman to display the costume.  Seen here is the before, after and the final, molded and finished by the very talented Jim Ojala!  Read all about it here at Wally's site!
