Anesthesia Vinyl Bust Launch

Anesthesia Veiled robotic lady Bust. Vinyl art collectible by Doktor A and 3D Retro. Sculpted by Bruce Whistlecraft. White Borley edition.

I am very pleased to announce the launch of my latest vinyl Art Collectible.

The classically styled bust of Anesthesia was inspired by the incredible marble work of Raffaele Monti (1818–1881).

I sculpted the original piece in 2014 as a high end art sculpture. Now 3D Retro have transformed her into a stylish and affordable addition to your home decor.

I am very proud of Anesthesia as she is the first vinyl production piece of mine that I have sculpted myself. 3D Retro have done an amazing job in retaining all the tiny details of the original. The precision of the mechanical garland around her head is reproduced spectacularly. And the gossamer nature of her veil is just as effective in vinyl as in the original.

Anesthesia has be coerced into a disagreeable arrangement.
Her father is a dealer in dreams.
Thus he must procure stock. To this end he employs the services of one Hugo Crane, a person with a unique ability to extract dream essence from unsuspecting victims.
But sometimes a specific target is required, the dreams of a certain person requested for a fee by another.
Sometimes that target must be induced to sleep so their nocturnal imaginings may be harvested.
And this is where poor Anesthesia is forced to aid her father’s underhand cooperative.
You see Anesthesia is able to induce slumber with a simple song.

The Winner!

Gordon Selwyn Bennett purchased a nice new topcoat and hat in a vivid green hue.
So uplifted was he with his new apparel, that he wished as many people as possible should share in it’s finery.
So he entered the first of what was to become large yearly races around Retropolis.
With no mind for practicality or the Grand Prize he insisted on sporting the unsuitable clothing.
Getting ahead of the crowd seemed the best way to show off his lovely jacket so he did just that.
Staying there for the duration of the race.
It was such a delightful surprise that this first time racer should be such a natural, that the crowd took him to their hearts.
And afterwards the local team adopted his shiny green tone as their official colours.

Designer Con Print

 

ToymakerPrintArtLorez

An exclusive mini print of “Sebastian Whittler” will be available from my booth at Designer Con on the 8th -9th of November at the Pasadena convention centre.
Pop on down to booth number 416 to pick up one of only 25 signed and numbered prints of this Toy making Retrobot.
6″ x 8″ (image size 4.5″ x 7″ ) $15 each.. Signed and Numbered by Doktor A.

 

Renown throughout the land for their marvellous toys, Sebastian is one half of the famous Whittler brothers.
He works miniature mechanical miracles with whatever comes to hand. Creating curious characters and fantastical clockwork facies for the discerning collector.
He has the sense when he works that he is breathing a little bit of his soul into each of his creations.

An odd idea as they are, after all only clockwork.
Toy clockwork.
Not real living clockwork like himself.
