Basket Case is a member of the Hairdo Cult group. This is a collection of busts with hair styles as a way of connection and comedic relief from traditional busts through history.
As with all my work, he arrived as a loose drawing. Making the form follow the drawing is a straight forward process but it is when a two dimensional image becomes three dimensional the play of light is the bonus. Basket Case is a strange mix of cartoon and beauty, all because of the light component. He was fun to build and brings a quirky presence to the room.
