Milt Kahl in 3D

Milt Kahl's designs work in 2 dimensions. They are flat and graphic in the most sophisticated way imaginable. His drawings always show a magnificent tension between straight and curved lines. Inventive shapes and lines based on a lifelong research of realistic animals and humans. You might think that his aesthetics could not be faithfully translated into 3 dimensions.

Think again! Sculptor Andrea Blasich totally nails Milt's extraordinary style in 3 D. His work is a great tribute to one of the most important artists of the 20th century. The looseness of his sculptures reflect Milt Kahl's rough drawings, full of life and appeal.

One of these days I am going to break down and order a whole bunch of these wonderful maquettes.

Andrea's website includes characters from other studios as well as private work:
