I’ve always loved sabre-toothed cats. When I was a kid I really wanted all the classic
monster models. I never got any of these, but I did manage to obtain (for a steal) some of their prehistoric kits; cavemen, tar pit, and my favourite, the sabre tooth. The bases kind of locked together and I had them laid out in my bedroom like a tiny Natural History museum display. Sadly, I no longer have them, as they now fetch pretty serious prices on eBay.

The brief for this dragon commission specified that he had to be adorable; so I played down all of the dragon’s malevolent characteristics and ramped up the cute factor to 11. When I was sculpting him I was thinking about a book ‘The Flight of Dragons’ illustrated by fellow
Midlands artist Wayne Anderson at the end of the 70’s. I didn’t take it off my bookshelf and revisit it until I finished sculpting, but I can detect a slight influence, especially in the huge, soulful eyes.

The largest of the Fuzzle Deer family, this wide-eyed ruminant has a longer coat than its cousins. It has two larger teeth in its lower jaw which it employs in extricating the edible tubers of the fidugi plant from the hard soil in which it grows.

The Cave Bear of Scoffer's Island. A (mostly) gentle giant who occupies the misty peaks and hidden valleys of the island's mountainous regions. The only thing he likes better than a fish supper is a good long snooze.

A new Baffler Bird. Almost finished the sculpt stage, now need to put it to dry alongside the Cave Bear and Fuzzle Deer.
