Jorge was approached by an artist, Kristian Williams, who had 2D drawings of a character he created, Akio. He commissioned Jorge to sculpt a near life size portrait of Akio, using only the 2D drawings.

Cast in forton with a obsidian patina and mounted on a walnut base, images of the final portrait are shown here.

Making of Akio

The adjacent galley shows images of the process of sculpting Akio, from the initial drawing to molding, casting, and final assembly.
