Portlandia artist Maryanna Hoggatt specializes in highly detailed statues of animal warriors that are pretty spectacular—fans of Tooth and Claw take note.
The statue shown above is about 10″ high and made from Super Sculpey, apoxie sculpt, armature wire, acrylic, fabric, ink, wood base. Her site also includes illos of the animals depicted. You can see her entire Animal Battle series here.
She also makes comics, such as this one based on her time as a bartender.
