Dudley was inspired by late-1970s punk rockers with mohawks.
His body is covered in circular metal scales. His face is a combination of hand-cut stone cubes and metal circular objects. His legs are made from welded metal. His wings are hammered copper sheets. His wings are shaped copper sheets, and his facial features are copper foil. His mohawk and spine are found metal and copper foil.
I make things because my demons won't give me any peace until I make something for us – mosaics, sculpture, drawings, books, stickers, furniture, tools...
I sell some of what I make, sometimes... when I can let go of it.
Often the work I sell is work created especially for a person. Commissions, pieces created as a collaboration between us, something that takes shape in our minds during a number of conversations, eventually making its way out into the physical world. Other times people just see something I've made and want to have it.
Books and stickers I just make, in large numbers. People buy them if they like them.
