"The End of the World Party" Open-Run Custom 3" Dunny

Gone are the days of moving boxes, fixing leaks and gardening.... i'm all moved in to the new house and the studio is up and running! I will try and post on my site more... I know i've said that before, but doing everything by myself is a daunting task and i'm finally getting the hang of it.

On to custom news: This guy is called "The End of the World Party" and it's up in my store this week only for a semi open-run. I will make as many of these as I get orders for during that week. For those of you who want a custom from me but the wait is too long, or the price is too high, now is your chance! Each dunny comes with a 5" x 7" matching print, a 25% off coupon for a future purchase of anything in my store (except commissions and subscriptions), and you have the option of naming the piece and it will be painted on the back. These will be numbered, so if you want a low number than order early! Only $75 each and available here from 12/1 - 12/8.

"The cyclical nature of life comes full circle with a cave painting-like image of a man praying for salvation, his mind exploding with the very existence that envelops him and brings his world to an end. With a party."

Thanks for looking, and i have so many posts to make up for so there will be more coming!!!

These are my two customs for the Most Wanted "Behind the Hype" Show @ 1AM Gallery in San Francisco this Friday May 11th. On the left is "The Hermit" and on the right is "The Hierophant". Both were painted with acrylics and the arms were sculpted and then cast in resin!!

The full title of this piece is "The Becoming, or An Extroverted Implosion of an Inverted Archetype". Made with resin and painted with acrylics!! It's available to purchase at the Super7 Store if anyone is interested. 50% of the profits go to the World Childhood Foundation.

Unpainted Playsam Teaser

Okay last post for today! Here is a quick pic of my playsam car, post sculpt and pre-paint (minus the wheels).

"With Wings You Shall Pass" Custom Mini-Munny

As a continuation of my koi-themed dunnys, I did a mini-munny but added a little bird action into the mix. Bish, Fird, who knows. It's a fish that can fly.... or a bird that can swim. Wait, birds can swim.... shit. Well, it was inspired by Jason Segel wearing sweatpants for 7 days in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Painted with acrylics and the flipper wings and beak made with resin.

Thanks for looking. Almost done for today!!

"Petulance #3" Custom Tequila

This guy was done to match a custom Steven the bat and a custom dunny of the same name. Painted with acrylics and airbrush. These tequila's are some quality vinyl, I highly suggest painting one up.

"Fancy Blast" Bellicose Bunny Custom

I can't believe I never put this up on my site.. I'm so fucking slow..... well here it is, done for the Bellicosity show @ Toy Art Gallery. I love it! Full name is "Fancy Blast, or I'm Insane and It's Cold, Can I Have a Hug?". When I brought this guy in to TAG, Connell read the title and gave me a hug :) I utilized some advice from one of the greatest artists of our time, William S. Burroughs; "Exterminate All Rational Thought" and just painted this with no planning or forethought. I love how it turned out and i'll be doing more stuff like this. Big thanks to Nathan!!!

Raul's Brother - Custom Android

This little guy is my first custom android, and i've got 4 or so more on the way. Painted with acrylics and some airbrush!! He is the brother of Raul, Duke of Katchata.

The Inverted Inverse of a Backwards Future Past

Here is a set of custom dunnys on the Chuckboy 2-tone sculpt, called "The Inverted Inverse of a Backwards Future Past" and are painted with acrylics.

Thanks for looking, more coming today.

The Diurnal Golem (XI) Custom Dunny

Things have been moving so fast I can barely keep up, so I'm doing a whole bunch of updates today and hopefully I can stay on top of them in the future. But honestly, how many times have I said that already? Anywho, get ready!

"A Lush Conspiracy" Custom Mickey For Play Imaginative/Disney

This guy was done under a super tight time limit, and I'm happy with how it turned out! Done for an upcoming show in Singapore for Play Imaginative x Disney. I call it "A Lush Conspiracy" and is mostly acrylic with some airbrush. The show is also a traveling one so keep an eye out! On a side note, they sent me 2 mickey's so I have an extra one to customize if anyone is interested....

Slaver and Mooshi Custom Qees

I did these guys for an upcoming show for Toy2r x So-So Happy based on their characters. The 8" bear qee is "Slaver" and the little guy is his best friend "Mooshi". The show might be a traveling show so keep an eye out for details, maybe it will come to a city near you! Check out the original characters here. I did my take on Slaver but Mooshi is basically just their character... it was appropriate since they are BFF's!

"The Misfortune of Frank Dent" - Custom Jay222 Clown

This GID beast is a custom on the awesome clown sculpt done by Jay222 and painted in all black by myself! I used only black because the GID was so strong and just let the sculpt dictate the paint. I have another clown and i can't wait to paint this one as well. Thanks Jay!

These little cups are one of my favorite small-scale toys in general, and it's about time I did up a custom one. Called "Last Cup of Sorrow" after the Faith No More song of the same name, it was painted with airbrush and acrylic and comes with a custom wooden window box. Original sculpt by the all around awesome Matt JOnes aka Lunartik.

Both of these were done for my subbers! The 3" version has a custom matching box.

I started this guy forever ago, and it's about time I finished it. Done for one of my subscribers, who is also a very patient collector and a good friend. Enjoy!!

Two New Canvas'

First is "The Proportionate Reaction of Animal Warfare" and is 10" x 14", acrylic on paper. This piece will be the basis for a resin figure of the same name as well.

Next is "It's Called Spillage" and is 8" x 10", acrylic on canvas.
