Ferg's "Doctored" custom Skelve for Stranger Factory's "Conjuring Mischief" exhibition!

Evolving his own "Playge Doctor Skelve" design (see HERE), the fantastically talented Clay "Ferg" Ferguson unveils his contibution to the previously announced "Conjuring Mischief" exhibition at Stranger Factory: the above pictured "Doctored." Like the original, it is modeled after the historically accurate 'plague doctors' of the 17th and 18th Centuries, whose beak-like masks were filled with aromatics that supposedly prevented them from contracting disease while providing medical care to those infected. I personally love that this new one-of-a-kind version not only has the obvious addition of fangs, but also eyes that seem more expressive due to the pupils being present.

"Conjuring Mischief," a group show of Skelve customs, will open on Friday, May 2nd with a reception from 6-9PM local time and be available for viewing through June 1st, 2014 at Stranger Factory, 109 Carlisle Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87106.
Participating artists include: Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, Chris Ryniak, Amanda Louise Spayd, Robert Hoggard, Josh Stebbins, Jay Hollopeter, Valency Genis, Chet Zar, Cassia Harries, Scott Wetterschneider, Carson Catlin, Stan Manoukian, Scribe, Shing Yin Khor, DrilOne, Leecifer, Travis Lampe, Carisa Swenson, Candice Tripp, Jonathan Bergeron, J Shea, Josh Herbolsheimer, Tim Lee, DISARTICULATORS, Mark James Porter, James Groman, Brian Flynn, Chauskoskis, Seymour, Lana Crooks, Robert Riggs, Andrew Bell, and J★RYU.
