These images are creepy in an obvious way. The blood is in your face, and the deer's plasticity is unavoidable. Now that I've gotten these images under my belt, the next step for this project is to continue to use the figurines, make realistic sets, and use "blood" (whatever that may be) in a way that will be unsettling without throwing it in the viewer's face.
I also made some sculpture boxes with phlebotomy paraphernalia. The needles and such were given to me to mentally prepare for an imminent blood test. I had my blood drawn, -- it went well -- and to truly represent my conquest, I sculpted the tools into art objects.

Come to my website to see more of these images and a really tasteless animated GIF.
