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!

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?

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!

We have nearly 300 views on ebay for our UFO sculptures in the past week and no buyers yet!

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.”

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:
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.

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.
