THE CAPE BUFFALO PROJECT
The Cape buffalo can be one of the most unpredictable and dangerous animals in the bush. I have had many encounters with this animal over the years and I have learned to treat it with respect.
People say that the buffalo simply has a bad temper. As a friend of mine put it “a buffalo looks at you as if you owe it money“. This image of the Buffalo maquette is my last sculptural encounter with the fabled buffalo. This time, however I wanted to portray the real power of this animal in life size!
This image of the clay shows the twice life size sculpture in its raw form. It shows the power of the sculpture but not it’s dominating size.
All will soon be revealed when it emerges from the darkness.

A SERIES OF CHEETAHS
I usually start any project with a strong instinct, a vague memory and a whole pile of references. A quick recce in the bush with my camera, however can help on all sorts of levels! This cheetah was very cooperative for a while but what I really needed was some speed. I had a concept in my mind of portraying the amazing gait of the animal in full chase as a linear sequence of sculptures.
I had previously sculpted the animal fully stretched now I wanted to create the entire sequence of racing conformations.
