Cellar Door…

November 11th, 2010

Working on a new custom for a juried show taking place at Cellar Door Gifts & Gallery (http://www.cellardoorgifts.com/).  The theme is “Unhappy Holidays”.  I am working on turing a Mighty Mugg into an evil elf.  Here is a work in progress picture from the ol’ studio.

So it is almost Halloween, and this year I was given the task a few weeks ago of painting some blank masks by my mother-in-law for her team to wear at work.  I was given no real direction other than make them look “scary” and keep it simple (since she knows how involved I can get).  Well, things of the macabre nature is right up my alley, so I said yes.  But I also knew that in regards to how I normally work (I can never keep it simple), it was going to be cutting it close to get them completed in time.  So I decided to limit my palette to just black paint and also not to sketch any thing out, but rather just start applying the paint to the masks and see what happens.  The following six masks are what I came up with, enjoy…

This past week I entered an online custom 3″ Dunny contest at customtoyunion.com. My piece, named ‘Pained’, lost in the first round, but still had a good showing. It seems that for many, it didn’t look recognizable enough as a Dunny, which hurt me in the voting. Ether way, I am really happy with how he came out, so here it is. He is also available for purchase, just hit me up.

I have been spending some time scouring gigs of data, trying to find and organize images for this site. I am finally getting close to having everything that I was looking for, so soon the gallery will be updated. While searching, I also found some of my animations. Things have changed, now that phones can record in HD, so Youtube’s file size limits have changes as well, and things that I was once not able to upload are now available on my Youtube channel. Here is my favorite, ‘dreamscapes’. Enjoy.
