Hi Everyone,

It's been awhile! Firstly, thank you for your patience and understanding while I've been away. My family and I had some serious and long-term medical health situations come up, and it significantly interrupted my painting. I had no way of knowing how much longer it was going to last, so I tried to tough it out, but it's been a lot longer than I had hoped. I'm pretty private, and haven't said anything about it, but the radio silence is becoming too much of a problem, so I'm giving you an explanation.

I've resumed painting, and am catching up on outstanding orders and commissions.
A handful of commissions as well as the Androids for outstanding orders are now complete. Collectors will be contacted in order of purchase to choose their desired design(s), or can reach me at the new email address below.

Outstanding commissions are in process, and new projects are currently closed.
My webshop will reopen shortly after current outstanding commissions are taken care of.

Some technical difficulties have made my previous email unusable, so you can contact me through ardabusrubber@gmail.com

Thanks for your patience and understanding, I'll have new artwork for you soon and replies to all inquiries will be as punctual as possible.

Rainbow Rucks and Aleppin Sane Bust for DCON

I finally got my hands on one of Jermaine Rodgers amazing Aleppin Sane busts, and I painted it up for DCON. 9 inches tall, airbrush and handpainted with acrylics, UV resistant, and lost in thought:

I also hand embellished a handful of the Ruck production Dunnys! I'll have 15 of these guys available at DCON for $65 each, as well as a few different versions that are 1/1:

Eleven Custom Androids

These are a bunch of Custom Androids for a group of incredibly patient collectors. Many factors went into these guys taking a very long time, but they are all just about done. So here are the first eleven, with 8 or 9 more to come!

Five New Fine Art Prints!

Happy 12th of July! Here are a handful of new prints I just dropped into my store! First up: a clean re-paint of Ruck on a box top with some accents from my AP's. These are 8x8 printed on 300gsm Entrada Rag, and it's an open run!
The Proportionate Reaction of Animal Warfare is an older piece that I thought had been lost forever, but I found high-res scans of it hidden away in a little nook. 12x16 on 300gsm Breathing Color Elegance Velvet, limited to 50.
I did some digital manipulations of photos of my customs and kinda love them all. I'll have a bunch of these coming sporadically, and here are the first few....

Milky Loopholes (Dark and Light Versions) are 8x10 printed on 300gsm Entrada Rag, and are limited to 25 of each.
This is a Rebel Ink custom I painted, inverted and color manipulated in glorious purple and blue. These are 11x14 on 300gsm Entrada Rag, and are limited to only 10!
Check back on Monday or Tuesday for five more prints dropping in my store, as well as a teaser of the 30 Androids that I've been working on for so long now coming next week as well. Thanks for looking!!

Special Inverted Fine Art Prints!

Here's a look at my super duper special inverted prints! I LOVE THEM!!! I'll be sporadically putting more "negative" versions of old and new pieces up here and there every few months, and this is the first batch of them.
All my inverted prints will now and forever be super limited editions of only 10 each.
WHAT!?!? Did you say you're only making 10 of them? Why yes I did!
Some of these are more than half gone already, and I'm just now posting them on my blog, so they won't be around for very long.
These are all printed on 300gsm Moab Entrada Cotton Rag and are available in my store: www.ardabusrubber.bigcartel.com.

I've also found 600dpi scans of two pieces that I thought had been lost forever, so there will be two new prints coming that I'm super super excited about!!! 12x16 prints of my "Animal Warfare" piece, and big ass 17x22 prints of a 'rucked' up Boba Fett. Yes, I actually painted something Star Wars, and yes there will be prints of it. OMG what is the world coming to.

Everything I've been posting has been prints or shirts in the recent because I'm so freaking backed up with customs, so there will be an intense explosion of them very soon, so not to worry! And for everyone who's waiting, you are all amazing, thanks for being so patient.... 32 androids, five 8" dunnys, about 20 3" dunnys, 3 PAWS!, a JAWS!, 3 skullheads, 5 owls, horses, some o-no sushi, gummy bears, cheese, garden, sky, space, more cheese.... now i'm hungry.

The Ultimate Legend - 12x16 Prints available NOW!

Hey everyone it's time for a new piece!

I did this as a tribute to The Ultimate Warrior (RIP) and his amazing life and reluctantly decided to make a very limited run of them available. He had a huge influence on me growing up and hopefully hardcore Warrior fans will appreciate these thoughtful renditions of his legendary likeness. Maybe this is where my love of crazy people and bright neon colors comes from??? The run numbers correspond with the date and mask color of each print. Done with ink on paper, and digitally colored.
Available in four super limited versions:
- Wrestlemania VI Neon version (top left) - Classic Warrior colors. Limited to only 6, for his victory at WM6.
- Rookie version (top right) - Black and yellow, the mask he wore during his debut match as Ultimate Warrior on 10/25/87. Limited to only 2, for the number of minutes it took for him to win the match.
- Fire Paint version (bottom left) - From his Survivor Series match 11/24/88. Since he was on a team of five, this one is limited to 5.
- My Favorite Color version (bottom right) - Pretty self explanatory, I just had fun with the colors! This one is limited to only 8, marking the day he died. RIP Warrior.

These measure 12x16 and are printed on Breathing Color 310gsm Elegance Velvet Cotton Rag. Each one comes signed and numbered.

$25 each plus shipping, available in my store www.ardabusrubber.bigcartel.com.

Thanks for looking, LONG LIVE WARRIOR.
