Gentle Giant have sat down with sculptor Joe Menna for an in depth chat in their latest blog.
The talented Joe Menna is a freelance sculptor that has done quite a few projects with us over the years. His most recent being the new Bib Fortuna mini bust that was released last month. We caught up with Joe this week to ask him a few questions about the process of bringing this fan-favorite character to three dimensions and share with you a rare look at the digital sculpt!
Can you give us a brief history of Joe Menna?
I am classically trained sculptor who finished his training in Russia, many years ago. After that I worked for some time in the fine art foundry world before my lifelong love of all things comic books, Star Wars, sci fi, and fantasy brought me into the collectible sculpting industry.
Do you remember the first sculpt you did for Gentle Giant Ltd?
It was a Jar Jar Binks bust, the first of many Star Wars projects I’ve been lucky enough to do for Gentle Giant Ltd.
