Inspiration: Brown Dog Welding!

My welding class starts in just a few DAYS!!! Weeeeeee! The last few times I’ve started to make a post about a whole slew of different welding/metalwork artists… I come across one that captures me so much that I am compelled to make an entire post about them! Today it is Brown Dog Welding, a one-man shop run by Josh Welton up in Michigan. (Anyone grinning at that last name? Love when people’s names resemble their art!)

He began on this path by working as a millwright apprentice for Chrystler in the early 2000’s. What began as a job quickly turned into a passion for him, and he was soon welding his own clever creations into reality. He holds several certificates for welding and is constantly improving his craft. And to top it off, he’s donating 10% of all company profits to Home Fur-Ever, where he and his wife adopted their dog Woodson (who is the inspiration for the company name!) as well as a non-profit in Detroit called Lifebuilders. Kudos to you guys – you are definitely doing things right! And now let us see the work!

Oh my word, how awesome is this Samurai warrior?!

Tractor (above) and detail shot (below) – love the texture he added to the body to roughen it up.

So impressed with all the deail on this fire truck!

Berzerker. Based on a character from Max Grundy’s “Out of Order

Thank you Josh for filling my little about-to-be-beginning mind with grand visions and possibilities!!


Meet Riley the Dog!

From time to time I’ve decided to add some stuff here that does not pertain to the current month’s project… whether its random creative inspirations I find, or other creative projects I am working on. It’s been several months now since my first needle felting project and I’m definitely still just as in love with it… trying to squeeze in an hour or two of felting wherever I can manage.

This is the latest critter that has come to life in the wee spare moments of my time this past month.. Meet Riley, the mischievous little pup with a heart as big as his nose! This little guy is based on one of my own cartoon characters I created sometime in middle school. It’s been so fun to see him come to life in 3D after nearly 20 years of only seeing him in pencil!
