Bloodletter: A Timeline
The idea for “Bloodletter" began as a joke - what would it be like to have a huge dragon perched in the front yard? Over the years the joke persisted until, in 2000, Mark put pencil to paper and began to sketch his dragon. For a while, the sculpture didn't even have a name. However, after he had inflicted a few gouges on Mark became clear what he wanted to be called. He came together slowly: Mark was working full time, he and Susan were running the moustache wax business, and other projects sometimes intervened.
“Bloodletter" weighs about 300 pounds, is 15 feet long and is constructed of a variety of metals.
