Meet Wilfrid Wood. He’s an artist who specializes in sculpting heads and figures that are never boring because they go far beyond the safe and traditional look many of us are used to seeing. Wood’s sculptures are often wacky, definitely fun, and always wildly expressive, like he’s managed to capture a person’s very specific reaction and emotion and feeling in each piece.

In this short documentary from Milkshake Tidalwave, Wood sculpts British novelist Will Self. It’s obviously fun to see his entire process of bringing a sculpture to life, but it’s even more awesome to hear his story and tour his studio to see all that he’s done.
