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!!!!
