Brian Griffin
United States
I have been a professional artist for about 12 years. I work with leather, metal, resin castings and quite a few other materials.

Most of my work is for sale, and quite a few are what I call "production works". They can be reproduced for sale. I also make custom props for film and theater.

Personal Quote: If you have done it once, you can do it a thousand times.
I posted the first attempt at the full sized skeleton torso with skull backpack in leather. Not overly pleased with it but I am in un charted waters. I will post more and add to the journal as time permits.

I also want to add that the process I put the leather through did not work as well as past projects. And I might add that the leather is not vacuum formed. If it were that easy, every one and their mother could do it. It takes hours to get the proper shape from the leather.

Absolutely amazing work!! How in the world do you get the leather so for fit to your molds!! i could stand to take a lesson from you for sure !

Thank you. Very kind of you to say so.
It took me several months to develop my technic for forming leather. I had to throw out the old tried and true methods and start anew. 
And I consider it a work in progress.

Thats cool. Keep at it. Especially if you enjoy it. 
I also own half of a company that has 2 retail stores, and that takes up a great deal of my time. So in short I have no plans to teach anytime soon. 
But I may do some on line vids and will post it in my journal.
