Hello to those still on here! I'm here with photos of my recent project in my AP Studio Art class (I'm the only kid taking it) and this project is heavily-inspired by the works of Bill Tracy.
I chose my "concentration" of each of my 12 projects to be based off of old bizarre articles, and this story comes from Chamouni, the "Human Salamander". He claimed to be incombustible and for his biggest trick he was going to walk into an oven and cook a leg of lamb without getting killed.....which of course didn't end well. The story itself has some dark humor in there, and I thought it would be best to Tracy-ize it.
These are pictures of my papier-mâché at this month's art show at my school.
I do have a red light in the display shining down on him. Also, I think the face rather turned out to look like one of the window guys of the Aladdin's Lamp.....but I think it still looks Tracy-ish!
Spooky, how are you? This is VERY impressive. It reminds me of the types of things I used to build when I was a kid. It also reminds me of Mike B's sculpture he made a few years ago. It's very well done! Incredibly creepy and curious, just as Tracy would have built. Thanks so much for sharing, and for hopefully putting a spark back in our forum. 2013/14 has been like death so far for this place!

I have been such a fan of this site and have been checking it everyday since I joined in 2008 and I love every bit of it....and I've observed over the years that the off-seasons really do seem to be dead in the forum....but this is REALLY dead. Hopefully once the park's in full swing we'll get some POVs and that might spark something. I myself still have to have my first visit down there!

Very nice. There are some of us still around. Ocean City's Forum site is just as dead. I should post some photos of my oldest daughter's dragon sculpture. It's not patterned after any Tracy work but impressive nontheless. Thanks for posting the photos.
Brandon: The forum has so many new visitors, but so few new posts! Come on people! Let's get the conversation started. Summer is almost here!

HHMacabre: Hi everyone! Did I hear word of new additions in the ride? How is the Mineshaft?

Brandon: Yes, there are supposed to be two new effects installed this year. I don't have any insight yet but will share the information once I receive it. I don't think anything has been done with the Shaft.

Brandon: There have also been three additional mini shooting galleries installed around the park. Pics and information to come a later date at ochh.net.
