Can you even fathom the awesomeness of Ryan Schenk’s latest mobile?
This mobile features Charles Bronson wakestyle kiteboarding over an angry ocean. Underwater is a shark with a laser beam attached to its head, fighting a t-rex in snorkeling gear. Placing money on the fight is a barracuda incarnation of Tom Waits, to the backbeat of a mermaid playing Kerry King from Slayer’s flying-v guitar through a stack of Marshalls.
Let’s look at each part in extreme depth.
Charles Bronson Kiteboarding
Ryan Schenk reports:
I made several revisions of Charles Bronson to get him structurally sound enough to support himself from the arms. This is the first revision, which didn’t make it into the finished mobile, but looks pretty good.
You can see his wake boots and his Slingshot Fuel in the background.
The final Chuck Bronson was made out of 4 sheets of cardstock laminated into a curved shape by using a mold inside a vacuum bag.
Appreciate Bronson’s incredible bravado.
You can feel the crushing crunch of this mermaid’s distortion. Appreciate the guitar, expertly made to mimic the flying-v guitar designed by Kerry King from Slayer.
The Mermaid with her stack of Marshall amps.
My heart is warmed by the thought of underwater distortion.
Laser Head Shark
Simple. Elegant. A shark with a laser attached to his head.
This raspy voiced barracuda comes equipped with top hat, cigarette, and a stack of money clutched tightly in its confident fin.
If you thought it was safe to enter the waters, you were wrong. Perhaps the most renowned predator of all times might be lurking beneath the waves in full snorkeling regalia. Be wary.
Great job Ryan Schenk.
