"Kent Melton, a master sculptor best known for creating maquettes at Disney and Laika, died on Thursday, February 22, at his home in Stone County, Missouri. He was 68.

According to Melton’s family, the cause of death was Lewy body dementia.

Maquette-making is a highly specialized line of work, and Melton was the preeminent artist in the field for decades......

“Maquette” is a term that goes way back to the Michelangelo era that means “model of something that will transform into a larger scale.” I’ll sculpt a maquette in a character moment that personifies who they are to the story. I have to put body language into the pose to express and sum up who this guy is to the story. I try to capture their likeness and essence of personality and position in the story. From that, they scan what I do and then do all other expressions and poses and repositions on the computer.

I'm so sad. Loved Richard Lewis, such a funny man.
I'm glad that we got to see him again on this last season of Curb
Your Enthusiasm. I just knew that he was a very sweet person . Jaimie Lee Curtis and Larry David have issued statements saying that. TCM sometimes shows a promo that Richatd Lewis did about his love of Buster Keaton, hopefully it will be shown again soon.
Very sad day.

RIP
Richard Lewis. You will be missed

So sorry to hear about Richard Lewis. I remember him from way back on the Ed Sullivan show. I could relate to his humor even as a child.

Wow Steve Lawrence & Eric Carmen the same week. Polar differences, but I enjoyed the work of both.

But I'm with Hibi on losing Richard Lewis-it came as a shock and is a sad loss for the world.
