Beggars and Freaks by Thomas Kuebler

Beggars And Freaks By Thomas Kuebler

Thomas Scott Kuebler was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1960 to a ceramics teacher and a photo engraver. Having innate artistic tendencies coupled with learning disabilities, Tom was encouraged to develop his creative skills. His childhood media ranged from paint to clay to broken toys and whatever he could find in the trash or junk drawer.
His first love was sculpting which lead him to major in Art at Kent State University. After college, he worked as a toy designer for American Greetings while in his leisure time building life-size sculptures for galleries. Through gallery exposure, his work was recognized by Good Displays, a Toledo trade show firm, and he was recruited for the purpose of creating Disney-like robotic characters. Eventually, a colleague bought out their division of the company and started an animatronics company.
After two and a half decades of working in the corporate world of toy design prototypes and bringing robots to life in the animatronics field, Thomas Kuebler opted to explore his full creative potential as a freelance artist. Armed with the tools of his trade, a supportive wife, and the odd inhabitants of his own personal fiction, he set forth on a new mission to bring the world inside his head to life. His award-winning silicone character sculptures range in venue from museums to private collections to the offices of DC Comics and have been featured in publications such as Spectrum and Rue Morgue.
