UPDATES Feb 2019: 51 remain of 100 editions available.
King Cuts Alfred Hitchcock, version 2
. This is a 4.25 inch / 11 cm edition of my sculpture of Alfred Hitchcock as his crow from The Birds. It's the 2nd version (1st edition with cigar is sold out), a limited edition available until one-hundred (100) prints are made in any material offered here. 80% of the price covers the 3D-printed material itself, 20% I added for my labor on the 3D model.
And so it was told... The Birds
metamorphosized Hitchcock. He was no longer just a portly fellow with a razor sharp sense of humor. Now he's nothing more than a crow. Poor Alfred. He tried so hard. Yet somehow he alway seemed to fall into the same mysterious trap every time.
Working the 3D Model
. After I carved the wood sculpture I made a 3D scan then re-sculpted & colored it with 3D-modelling software. I enlarged, deleted or altered certain parts. Some things need to be thick to be 3D-printed. Enlarging also raises the cost of the material. So I worked to lower the cost & meet the technical spec's. Including the 3D-scan, patching, re-sculpting & coloring, it took me about 29 hours to develop this for 3D printing here.
The Wood Carving
. See pictures, videos and more about my original Alfred Hitchcrow wood carving here on my website
. The original 18 inch sculpture took me weeks to carve from scratch in western red & yellow cedar wood, then paint in acrylic. It was part of my "King Cuts"
series of wood carvings depicting famous film directors mashed with their characters. I'm working on more 3D-print editions from this series.
