This piece is dedicated to my mom, my role model, my support, and my inspiration. My limited edition collectible statue ‘Lulu’ is now available for preorder ‣ https://www.sideshow.com/collectibles/tina-yu-lulu-atomic-misfit-700138
The deer looking creature represents my mom, and I’m the pouty bunny on her back. It depicts an interesting relationship I had with my mom growing up. I relied on her so much but also didn’t want to take classes on the weekends haha. For those of you who don’t know, that’s how I started doing art. I started taking art classes on the weekends since I was 5 or 6. And no matter what, there’s a special bond between her and me. As I grow older, I began to realize that everything she did was for my good. It’s her way of expressing her love for me. To watch my interview with Sideshow Collectibles, talking about the inspiration behind ‘Lulu’ here ‣ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USnflyRYOnQ
The sculpting part of the video was recorded last year during the summertime when I was still using my old camera, so excuse the quality. 😛
