10/22/17: National Sculptors' Guild John Kinkade is in NJ for the unveiling of The College of New Jersey’s new Bronze mascot by NSG fellow Herb Mignery. The 8ft Lion served as the official greeter to homecoming fans at the game. The sculpture will be stored until the permanent site at the Brower Student Center is ready in Spring. The sculpture was generously presented to the school by alumnus William McLagan. #GoLions
3/15/17: Herb Mignery has been making room for a lion. He recently moved out of a spacious studio thinking he wasn't going to sculpt monuments anymore - then we called saying - want to sculpt a life-sized lion.?! Luckily he had room in his garage.
The lion is based on a maquette Herb sculpted a few years ago. When TCNJ alumni Bill McLagan visited the gallery, he knew this was the piece to enlarge for The College of New Jersey's campus. Stay tuned to see updates as the lion is cast in bronze and installed...
Herb Mignery's fashionable bronze weasel "Ellwood" is just out of the foundry with a fresh patina from Pat Kipper. To be installed in Riverfront Park in Little Rock joining Herb's other anthropomorphic sculptures already in Little Rock.

JK Designs’ Principal, John Kinkade, founded the National Sculptors’ Guild in 1992 with a handful of sculptors who wished to find thoughtful public applications for their work. Representation has since grown to over 20 contracted sculptors and painters; plus an extended network of 200+ artists that our design team works with on a regular basis to meet each project's unique needs.
