DIY projects | Maker of the week: Harrison Krix, the Volpin Props
If you are looking for inspiration for your DIY projects, then you should have a break and learn from the best. Great projects and great Makers always inspire us when ideas don’t seem to come out, when we’re stuck in a problem that seem to have no solution. And that’s the reason why last week we started this new blog category: to help you get inspired with the best Makers all over the World.
Today we celebrate the outstanding work of Harrison Krix, also known as Volpin Props. Volpin says that he has been building things for as long as he can remember and looking to his work we can say that for sure he was born with the great ability to create. His hands are simply magic and his creative mind go far beyond the limits: Volpin DIY projects are really impressive, mixing perfectly the best of technique with the most creative ideas. That’s why sculpting, molding, sanding and carving were always a part of Volpin’s life, a true Maker since the beginning of time.
Inspired by Halloween nights, on 2007 Volpin started working with propmaking as a hobby, practicing his skills and technique and growing as an artist. Evolution and growth are words that we can truly see on Volpi’s work that always love to learn new materials, new techniques and find new skills he never new before – and that’s what Making is all about! To grow and to develop your DIY projects you must study hard, learn everyday and be always be persistent.
And thankfully for us, on 2011 Volpin gave up his graphic designer job to start working on his passion – replicas from video games and sci-fi are his everyday life but actually he can make almost anything. And here he is today, truly inspiring all of us with his DIY projects!
Although it’s really hard to choose from such quality work, we’ll show you some of our favorite Volpin creations. What’s yours?
