Everything is In Flux

Hi there, 
Forgive me reader, for I have sinned.  It has been 8 months since my last post.  Things have been a little crazy here.  Me and the family have moved ourselves back to Arizona because I got a really sweet teaching gig.  I have received a grant from In Flux to produce the sculpture you see above (or at least something very similar).  
I have also selected the new domain name for my website: http://www.nathaniellewis.org/  I got myself ORGanized.  .net is so 2000 and late.  I also re-designed it.   I didn't have a ton of time to customize it, but I likes it.
I'll tell you more about the sculpture next week.  Below are parts of the plan and the proposal.
 I started with a drawing

 I built an armature to scale
 Then I sculpted the figure (not shown because I can't find the pic)  I used this figure as the base for the photoshop rendering you see at the top.

Next came the styrofoam

Projected a scaled version of the figure onto the foam (picture courtesy of Maya)

Traced it out on both sides ready for rough carving
Next week?
