James Dean bust, 19in height
I sculpted this clay bust of James Dean over the past few weeks, mostly for me since I won’t sell editions of it. I have been a fan of James Dean since I first saw Rebel Without a Cause and East of Eden when I was a teenager. There is something intriguing and mysterious about him that I thought it would be fun to try to capture his likeness since there is so much available photography on the internet. This was a bit challenging since he was such a good looking guy, but I am pleased with how it came out. I will post photos of the finished casting in a future blog post.
