A montage of realistics for the live auction at this years Sowbug event in Arkansas. Flies are a selection of a wasp on a nest, a claret dragon fly, a couple of ladybugs, a flying bee, a black widow spider and just for fun a housefly next to my signature,
As always I used DC resin for finishing and building up legs etc

WOW!!


Just wondering, since you make fake bugs look real do you make real food look fake?

Great job as always

I am a dunce! Takes me a while to add two and two but I finally put you (Mike Morphew) and ChefMike together. Mike, I was the older, fat guy who sat across from you at the Austin Flyfishers meeting last Thursday. After watching you there just "whip up " a few flies all the while teaching at many different levels....you really need to go for Gold. Thanks and I hope to see you again next meeting!

Dan

Mike,

I liked hearing about your counterpart that rents his bugs in Hollywood...you should tap into that cookie jar.

Thanks Jamie and Kaboboom I have thought about the prop flies and bugs but don't want to step on my friends toes. If I am asked by a company for promotional or advertisement them maybe
