The Fantasy Sculptures of the Shiflett Brothers

The sculptures of the Shiflett Brothers look like they were pulled to life from the painted cover of classic fantasy magazines. We meet Brandon Shiflett at Comic-Con to learn about their work, kits, and collaboration.

  1. Moebius was amazing. Congrats to these guys for doing their own thing. Maybe I’m an asshole but I think we have enough Batman sculpts. I want to see original creations. That’s where you cross over from craftsperson to artist.

    (To be sure, I love and respect the craftsperson and I find I am both inspired and motivated by them — to be more skilled myself, to use my hands more. But it is the artist that inspires me to use my imagination.)

  2. That’s a really interesting process they have. And I like how they credit their casting team too. They seem like great guys to work with.
