The Making of Little Dave


This piece named Little Dave went from concept to sea turtle super star! Some of Mike's art starts with a sketch, Some are just free hand in clay and he makes whatever the mood calls for. The drawing is perfectly rendered in ceramic 3-D form, with a few added quirks and a shiny green paint job. Little Dave came to life, and brought joy and happiness to all that saw him (we hope).

Not only can you find little Dave in the shop on occasion, but his adorable face is on some pretty snazzy products, like pens, mugs, mouse pads, night lights, tees and even super snazzy high tops. Seriously how cool is that?!

You can find the entire Little Dave Product Line Here. But these are some of our favorites!

The cutout (Top Right) which doubles as a magnet or ornament came out great. It's a thick plexiglass image perfectly cut around the turtle with a black backing.
