On this day in 2014, we lost Dave Brockie, better known as Oderus Urungus of Gwar. RIP Head Master Scumdog!
Thought we would share a shot from the KnuckleBonz studio this AM. One of the KnuckleBonz founders actually went to High School with Dave and was fortunate to work w/ GWAR on a couple of projects. Brockie was many things, super creative, super intelligent, super nice, super hilarious and a superfan of his beloved Washington Redskins, DOH! Washington football team. Would have been fun to hear the Oderus take on that…
This pic is of Dave’s, Oderus Urungus GWAR mask he sculpted and cast for us in 2001. Note the eye sockets and mouth area are still intact. This is how it would come out of the hand-made plaster mold. Dave asked us of we wanted him to set it up like he would for stage wear cutting these areas out and we said, NO WAY!. What you see is a little more Dave Brockie and a little less on the “Intergalactic Hulking War Machine” that was frontman of Gwar Oderus Urungus.
Roc Hard Today Scumdogs! Kbonz
