Unfinished Drawing 25

Originally a foreground creature for the painting "Nuclear Nightclub" this is one of my favorite Avatar Aliens.

Unfinished Drawing 24

A first generation Avatar Alien for Double Speak.

Unfinished Drawing 23

Not an alien in my little sci-fi universe but a designer life form made to travel the crawl spaces of a starship and make repairs.

Unfinished Drawing 22

A crawl space designer life form.

Soul Seeker

I looked into the eyes of the Soul Seeker and I felt happy. The creature must like me. I've heard stories of Soul Seeker driving humans crazy with one look when they didn't like what they saw in the person's soul.

Bubble Eye

A Bubble Eye in his best living suit.

You can see the new ears coming in at the top of the head as they migrate to the chin where they dry up and fall off.

Unfinished Drawing 17

The skin is made of fungi and cracks as it releases spores.

I Tried Not To Sneeze

The smell was terrible but getting sick meeting an alien for the first time was bad form.

Hot Rock

Hot Rock is a friendly little radioactive living rock.

Alan and Shannon

These two people were a positive influence in my life at a time I was very depressed.
Shinning creative souls in a bleak period on my artistic journey.
Without Alan's help I would have never finished my first dinosaur puzzle and Shannon introduced me to the world of fabric art.

Garden Party

While this poster appears as the first post on my old blog
"Robert Vollrath's Inflatable Studio"
I decided to save Eli's little get together for a low point in this blog. The Periodic People booklets got tedious but this blog is about documenting my complete body of work so at times it will become tedious. If I hadn't meet Eli Pupovac when I did, I wouldn't be at the most creative period of my life. His gentle push in the right direction was the best thing anyone could have done for me.
The Inflatable Id Studio is evolving in ways I couldn't have imagined just a few days ago.

Spider Webs & Drift Wood

This drawing is the concept for the basic building unit for the exoskeleton for the Inflatable Id.
Once again I've set a goal for myself that seems near impossible to archive.
I wouldn't have it any other way.

Hex Tiles

Another ugly concept drawing as I redesign the Inflatable Id. I'm using a hex tile concrete mold my father made out of one inch wood as a template. This saves time as I both design and construct most of what is the Inflatable Id. I'm recycling waste plastic from a local factory and the double hex design fits the size of the pieces I salvage from big sand bags. All the hexes will be painted in two colors with abstract patterns.

The Queen of Dreams

A few days old, she is my Queen of Dreams. My Grand Daughter is my reason to pick up the broken pieces of my life and move forward. She rules a land of imagination that I will spin into reality for her. All things in my life center around her in a serenity of peace only she can give to me. I have a Grand Son on the way and he will be my King of Dreams and rule a dreamland of his own.
I will try to be the Grandest of Grandfathers to both my Grandchildren.

Empire of Junk

These two photos show the clutter that is my life. My oldest son Mark calls this clutter that I own, the "Empire of Junk". A friend has asked me to move to Oregon and the thought of moving my Empire half a continent has forced me to let the Empire fall into as many trash cans as it takes. Empire of Junk no more!
