MICHAEL JACKSON SCULPTOR

 
 
 
 
In 1994 I created a sculpture of Michael Jackson that became Michael's HIStory album cover and the centerpiece for a worldwide advertising campaign.
In New York, I supervised a photo shoot of Michael to provide sculpting reference. After Michael’s approval, the sculpture was cast and a fine grid was hand-drawn on its surface preparing it for digitizing. The digital model was then lit and rendered to look like a marble statue.
