Gentle Giant Interview Freelance Sculptor Joe Menna

The fine folks at Gentle Giant have worked with the talented Joe Menna, a freelance sculptor on many projects over the years, and most recently on the Bob Fortuna Mini Bust.

Gentle Giant 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.

Read the full interview here at the Gentle Giant blog. There are still a limited quantity of the Bib Fortuna Mini Busts to buy.
