Model Approved

Filed under: Uncategorized — Administrator @ 4:05 pm

Our latest UFO sculpture, “Carjackers” has been approved.  The old 1929 Model A Ford looks like it has just the right amount of rust for a car sitting in the hot desert sun for 30 years waiting for a group of E.T.’s to make their escape!  On another note, we sold three sculptures this week!

Good Day in the UFO world

Filed under: Uncategorized — Administrator @ 2:22 am

Today was a great day for our fledgling business.  We sold 2 pieces, got the finished photos of “Carjackers” and a lot of UFO stories seem to be coming out!  Perfect Storm?

Cafe Press – UFO Shirts

Filed under: Uncategorized — Administrator @ 6:04 pm

After being nagged for months, I finally opened a Close Encounters Store within Cafe Press.  So far, I only put one design for t-shirts (including a very cool alien green t-shirt) but I think I will add some neat coffee mugs tonight.

We approved the final model for the next UFO sculpture “Carjackers” and the next step is paint & finish.  We are very excited about this new design and think that this will be the best one yet!

Carjackers – Revision

Filed under: Uncategorized — Administrator @ 3:26 pm

Made some minor changes to the newest model.  I found out that the car and the base are molded in one piece so it has to have a lot of material under the car which looked a little bit funny.  We came up with a simple solution; simply add a stone texture to the surface and sprinkle some random stones around the perimeter.  Now it looks like they high-sided the car and have to get it of the rocks!

Just signed up for Google AdWords.  Let’s see if this will help to drive traffic to our site.  I used the keywords “UFO, aliens, Roswell, Extraterrestrial, Conspiracy and Area 51.”

Carjackers

Filed under: Uncategorized — Administrator @ 1:32 pm

This morning, I opened our email and found an image for the clay model of “Carjackers!”  It was like Christmas in March!  The design looks terrific and they achieved a level of detail and realism that is shocking.  See the image for yourself:

LUNACON – Wrap Up

Filed under: Uncategorized — Administrator @ 1:30 pm

Well, the show was a miss for us.  We only sold one piece during the 3 day event.  We did have a good time, however and the one customer we had was very excited to get the “Moon Landing Conspiracy” model so that made the whole thing worthwhile.

LUNACON – Day 1

Filed under: Uncategorized — Administrator @ 11:33 am

Well, the 1st day at the LUNACON show in Rye, New York has come and gone and was a disappointment for us.  We did not sell any pieces during the 3 hours the show was open.  Today will be an 8 hour day so we are hoping for the best.  So far, the attendees seem to be mostly interested in books and t-shirts.
