I have not been terribly active here on DA for a while...although I have been very busy. Here's a little something I'm quite proud of that was a joint project with my nephew Corey Rindler. It was a proposal by him for his final project in music engineering at Capitol University in Columbus Ohio. I was deeply honored and excited. This is likely as close as I will ever come to realizing my dream of a movie being made featuring my stories and concepts and art...so here they are, Project Esoterra in three parts.

Okay, so...I have not been on DA much for quite some time... I wonder if that matters much, but here I am. I've been VERY ill for several months and basically all through the holidays...so they weren't exactly joyous. I think I have a handle on things and I'm getting better physically any way- but my mood has been pretty down. Last year was quite a mixed box of things and ended....not great.

But, I'm busy working on some new stuff- mostly a piece for an art exhibition being held out west in Washington state at a couple of galleries. It's a fantasy mixed media sculptural exhibition centering around interpretations of the Zodiac and the planets. I got asked to be part of this with not a great amount of notice and so have been working hard to get at least one piece done and shipped out. It's a big one and I'll post photos here later for the few of you that still watch what I post and read what I have to say here. I'm trying hard to try to get my foot in the door of other areas of art in the fantasy art world as the art doll world- despite several recent publications interviewing me- seems to have pretty much rejected my work, or at least the collectors of that world. So I wonder how much effort I will be spending on courting as it were patrons in that genre any more. I'm hoping that getting in this exhibition will open the doors for me to begin to venture in to different world of fantasy art as figurative sculptor versus a doll artist.

    I will be at this years' Quinlan Art Doll and Teddy Bear show in Philly this May, but it's about 99% likely it will be my LAST year there. I will also be in Chelsea Michigan the first weekend in October for the Ghoultide Gathering show- THAT is a great thing and I am looking forward to that show very much. So...if any of you might be out around those locations, drop by the shows and say hello and see some of my work in person.

    Any way, as I see recently from many others who I am connected with here, I am stepping in to say: I am not dead...quite... :roll::shrug: I appologize to those of you who have written to me here and made comments and asked questions of me as most of them have gone unanswered. I can't promise that I will answer all of them soon...but I will try and know that I do read them all. Thank you to you folks who still come by and who watch me still and those of you new to my page who have added me to your watch list in the past six months or more- I appreciate that very much!

So...the Quinlan show was almost a complete wash out for me- not one sale. Honestly, had it not been for meeting the other wonderful artists there and my lovely wife and I making new friends, it would have been a complete loss. As it was fiscally, it was a complete loss... It had nothing to do with the economy- the Teddy Bear artists were selling tons of things and one piece from a person right next to me sold for $6,500 US Dollars!!!!!! :jawdrop::wow::faint: There were a few other fellow doll artists who sold a few things...but by and large, not so well for many of us... And it was Teddy Bear collectors who bought many of the art dolls!!!!

So...this begs the question:

Am I wasting my time completely? It appears that the so-called "doll collectors" have utterly lost interest in what people like myself do... Preferring bjd's, mass produced Tonner dolls and stuff from the Marie Osmond collections- and many of these things will all be as valuable as Beany Babbie's are now in a few years. :roll::shrug: So...what now?

I have two more shows that are straight up general "art" shows- not "doll shows"- that I will be part of:

The Ghoultide Gathering-

ghoultidegathering.blogspot.ca…

... in Chelsea Michigan.

Ghoultide Gathering in ONE DAY only!!!! Saturday, September 28th from 8AM to 4PM. Located at the Chelsea Fairgrounds- see the above link for details and directions.


The second one later this year is:


Jingle Mingle is also ONE DAY only! Saturday, December 7th from 10 AM to 3PM. It will be held in Pittsburgh PA at the Historic Library/Music Hall in Munhall. Address is: 510 East 10th Avenue, Munhall, Pennsylvania.

I'm hoping that getting back to appealing to a more general art collecting crowd may bear more fruit for me as an artist...
If any of you happen to be anywhere near either of those locations when the shows are on, drop by....there are many wonderful artists taking part in those shows and I am honored to be among their number. We could ALL use the support- moral and monetary.

Come and see the show! Friday, August 17th, Yellow Springs Arts Council Building in Yellow Springs Ohio USA!

www.ysartscouncil.org/

Just realized that I didn't actually provide information as to WHERE the Yellow Springs Arts Council Building is exactly:blushes::blush:...this is the link to the YSAC web site and thus direction to the location.

The Carnival of Souls!
Opening Night...join us won't you?

Featuring my own work along with that of my amazing friend and fellow doll artist Cassandra Graham :iconwildejewels: ...

The show will run every Saturday and Sunday from August 18th until the first weekend in September as well from 1to 4 PM. We shall both be in attendance on those days as well...if you can't make opening night, come see us and the Carnival on one of those days!

Just to get you in the mood...and also because it's the inspiration for my journal title and it's been running though my head all day as I work desperately to get more work done for the show...   www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7Eyyl…

....it seems that the answer is largely, Yes...and this makes me sad and very frustrated and yes, more than a little angry... Please, if you are reading this, consider joining this group here on DA to help put this genre- yes, my own chosen genre of artistic expression- back on the radar of the Admins here on DA!!!

deviantsculptors.deviantart.co…

Also, read this journal from one of the Sculpture Groups' former moderators- and an extremely talented sculptor as well:

fav.me/d57g3mw

Even if you are not a sculptor, doll artist, figurative sculptor, mask maker, expressive, abstract sculptor or modeler or any other kind of artist working in actual three dimensional media, we would love your support and maybe you would consider at least adding the group to your watch list...I myself "watch" so many diverse artists here on DA of every kind of medium of artistic expression as I feel it only helps to enrich myself personally and artistically even more. I hope that we, as sculptural artists, do the same for all of you...DA and all the artists here have have both had a profound impact and influence on my work, and though it has always seemed to me that this medium has garnered very little attention on DA, it has been a place that remained dear to me...and so this slight hurts frankly. I thank you all in advance if you've read this, more so if you help out...DA is a big entity, so they do make a difference.

~Sincerely,
Kevin Buntin

In other news...I just found out that I got a mention and a sort of feature in the July issue of Dolls magazine! shop.dollsmagazine.com/back-is… :w00t::excited::dance::w00t: It's an article about this year's Quinlan Art Doll and Teddy Bear show and I am mentioned in the section about those pieces purchased by the Quinlan's for their Art  Doll museum in Santa Barbra California USA! My piece Elias the Valley Strider- which is the piece they purchased and that now resides in the aforementioned museum- is the one piece the publisher chose to print a photo thereof! It's not a hug photo...but it's right there in the article and towards the front of the issue! :excited::dance::party::w00t:

Multi-talented artist Cassandra Graham- wild life painter, jewelry artist and now doll artist- and I have been accepted to participate in the Yellow Springs Ohio Arts Center show this year in August- the show runs through September. We are very excited to premier our first real joint show...this will be the maiden launch of:

Carnival of Souls -

A rich, entirely original, one-of-a-kind palette of characters expressing fantasy, myth, humor and portraiture as well as the outrageous.
Two separate and different visions with a common thread of creating small 'souls' to intrigue and delight the viewer - all from a piece of clay.


Their Face Book page:

...and their main web site...

So...come one...come all to our Carnival of Souls!!!!!

UPDATE CORRECTION

I have a an update on the dates for the show I'll be co-hosting with Cassandra Graham- the Carnival of Souls. This is to be at the Yellow Springs Arts Center in Ohio from August 17-September 9th 2012- starting with a Gallery Reception that Friday- the 17th- as part of Yellow Spring's "Friday Fling". The gallery will be open on each Saturday during those dates. Times are tentative for now...10Am to...?

I hope to see you there... I believe it is weekends only...? Further updates and confirmations on those dates forthcoming... STAY TUNED! If any one else here is in or near this part of Ohio- or in or near Ohio at all- I invite you to visit Yellow Springs and to stop by the show. Yellow Springs Ohio is a lovely little town with some small amount of notoriety- it is the home of Antioch University which counts among its most famous alumni Rod Searling! Come see our Carnival of Souls and say hello!

P.S.

I accidentally deleted 75 messages from folks that I had not replied to yet!:( So...I can only apologize and hope that those of you wonderful folks who made comments and who have yet to receive a reply will read this and know that I read EVERY comment always... I'm still trying to catch up from all the lovely comments I received from the DD I received several months ago AND all the wonderful Happy Birthday wishes I received shortly thereafter... Deletus prematurus...:blushes: I assure you, I'm not a snob- though I have been very busy trying to make ends meet and to generate new work and pieces- but I am a  doofus...:bucktooth::doh:

The Cicada Princess, an independently produced piece of stop-motion animation that is magical and truly lovely to behold. Below is the link to this groups' Face Book page:


www.facebook.com/pages/Cicada-…

Drop by and offer whatever support you can for these folks. This is a beautiful piece and really is what we should be seeing more of from other larger animation teams out there, but typically don't. Even if all you can do is spread the word, I'm sure it would be appreciated. But any amount of money that you offer I know would be greatly appreciated. Watch their video there as well- they are making some lovely offers to those who donate certain amounts as well...as if the offer if this lovely stop-motion animated piece wasn't enough!
