Clay Alchemist Secrets

Behind the Scenes work for Clay Alchemist: by Jonathan D. Lopez.

Truth be known, Robbie was in the making since I was six years old.  When I showed my mom the finished sculpture, she instantly mentioned how it was just like the golden Nibbles. When I was in the 1st grade, I was able to take home the class pet and we frequently would joke and hold the a Mr. Potato Head derby above her head.  

I need to find a picture of this!  I would die laughing…

Anyways, his full name is Robbie Balboa - the offspring of Robert Di Niro and Rocky Balboa.  He’s got the bizarre character of Rocky and the ridiculously over-over-the-top cry of Robert (seriously, I died laughing hearing him cry in Raging Bull).
