In the News

My local newspaper, the Fredericksburg Free-Lance Star, published an article this Sunday about myself and Sergeant Kris Battle. Check it out. I'm sorry that I haven't published much of late. Sergeant Battles and I have been busy in our studio and actively preparing for our next trip Afghanistan to cover the upcoming deployments of the 24th Marine Expeditonary Unit and the 2nd Battalion of the 7th Marine Regiment.
Also, here's a picture of the current state of the sculpture I'm actively working on.

As I read through the Fredericksburg article and your quote, “It's very elemental," Fay said, "a core experience of what it really means to be human." I was reminded of something an older friend, a Korean War Vet, once told me. He said, “when they make a statue/memorial to the Korean Vet, they need to make it with snot frozen to his lip and shit running down his leg.” That would certainly capture the humanness of the soldier.

I miss your old posts of ranting and I would love to see more of your art, but you did post on my 50th birthday, and that was nice.

This is magnificent work. Michelangelo would be proud and so am I to witness this sculptor.
