One reason I always head down to the Deep Ellum Arts Festival as soon as I can after it opens (after work on Friday) every years is so that I can get a look at David Pound’s work before too many are sold.

David Pound, TwentyHeads.com, is a sculptor that makes little monster heads in wooden boxes. I have loved his work ever since I saw it a few years ago and I save up to buy something each year. This would be the fourth.

The First one I bought was Persuasion:

and last year, I bought Fracture Zone:

Two years ago, I had David make a commission of a pair of earrings for Candy for Mother’s Day that were modeled on our dog, Rusty.

As always, he had a large collection of cool little monster heads in boxes. As always, it was tough for me to choose. I think I gravitate to the simpler works – I seem to look for little guys that have interesting expressions on their faces. At any rate, after two visits (I looked for a bit, walked around, and came back to make up my mind) and some input from Candy, I chose Lumbo – a little unhappy looking purple guy with three orange eyes and some delicate bones (mouse bones?) sticking up out of his head.

Now he takes his place with his three buddies on a little shelf over our television (they share their spot with a couple Zulu Coconuts).

If you like David’s work (and who doesn’t) take a look at his website – twentyheads.com. To see more of his stuff, like his facebook page, his DeviantArt Page, or at Nashville’s Smallest Art Gallery.

This year was a good one for growing Monster Heads in little wooden boxes.

Hard to pick only one.

I like the heads, I like the titles, and I like the images on the inside of the boxes.
