The character Mulch Diggums comes from the Artemis Fowl childrens books written by Eoin Colfer.
This sculpture was created for one of my first year projects at university titled Media Solutions. We were given a selection of books and told to develop an idea for one of the characters.
Mulch Diggums is described as a kleptomaniac, expert burglar who is infamous for his powerful and deadly flatulence. As a dwarf he can tunnel underground using his unhinged jaws at high speeds.
There are some fantastic illustrations around for the character, but i decided to approach the project with a steampunk style.
