New! The Loops of Paradise 8x10 Prints AVAILABLE NOW!

This one was painted with acrylics on 8x10 canvas board and was super fun.  I hope to make more pieces like this since I was able to do whatever my mind wanted. The best kind of creation! Titled "The Loops of Paradise" and was a gift for my fiance for Valentie's Day. Fine art prints of this piece are available in my store here. Thanks for looking!!

An Array of Ardabus Fine Art Prints AVAILABLE NOW!

It's been a rough few months here in the Rubber Studio, and I haven't had time to put anything up on here and it's been making me antsy, but I've been working nonstop and it's time to get back to posting! I got a big fine art printer, so a whole bunch of my artwork that's been super hard to get or was unavailable in the past have been made into fine art prints and are up in my store now!! The prints will give me more time to focus on the massive list of commissions and customs I have, without having to constantly add more to that list just to get the bills paid every month. Click HERE to visit my store.
I currently have fifteen different prints up and about nine more on the way, including the long awaited "My First Crush" Samus print. All the prints are limited with very low run numbers, between 25-50 depending on the piece, with sizes including 5x7, 8x10, 11x14, 12x16, 16x20 and 17x22. I will be putting a new print in my store every few weeks, and i'm also doing special "inverted" versions of certain pieces, that will be limited to only 10. All prints are archival quality, printed on 300gsm Moab Entrada 100% Cotton Rag. All prints come with a print sleeve and sizes below 12x16 come with a backing board. I also do combined shipping, only $1 for each additional print!
And for the first five people who read this and purchase something, can take 15% off with the code
I have soooo many customs that i'll be sending out over the next few months, and I appreciate everyone's patience while I get them all done.
Thanks for looking and have a splendiferous day!

Blacklight Sketch Munny and Dunny Pair

I did these guys with neon sharpies, the ones that glow under blacklight!! They are the brightest sharpies I've ever used, but the photos didn't come out as bright as I wanted. I'll blame it on my new lighting configuration =D

Ruck Madness!

Happy Holidays everyone! A lot has happened since my last post. First off, if you are one of the 4 people still waiting for your inverted Ruck Dunny, they haven't been lost in the mail!! I reverted to painting them one at a time, the assembly line type thing just wasn't working and day after day I found myself making zero progress. Adam K., Lee, Tasha, and Jason, yours are being finished right now and will ship in the next few days! Now it's photo time =D

First is a group shot... the first batch of the finished custom Ruck inverts with the last 3 AP counterparts.

Next is a custom Android called "Ruck Morph"

Here's a photo of the Android with the Dunny
Lastly is a special sketch print I made only for the 12 people who ordered the inverted customs. I made these as a thank you for everyone who was so patient with me because I took SOOOO long to finish the customs. Thanks!!!!
