Drone Support


So after a three month hiatus after the birth of my second child, I am back with the “Sonic Support Drone” and in so the completion of the Drone Series. I have really enjoyed this set of customs and each has evolved one step more than the lost with the Sonic Support Drone being the most tailored piece yet. Check out all the pics after the hop and let me know what you think.

They are up for Sale HERE

See more shots after the hop as well as a group shot!

Bite Me


Introducing my new Print Series entitled “Bite Me”. These Prints like most of my work are a combination of hand created pieces and digital manipulation.

In order to have a perfect reproduction, I have run the prints on a fine art Giclee printer on the best available watercolour papers. This way we were able to recreate every subtle detail in the watercolour paint as well as the bright, popping colours.

The Prints are available for purchase over at my store. If you are outside South Africa and would like to order prints please let me know via email and we can sort it out. Cheers and I hope you dig, The Given!

You can see the other two in the series after the hop:

Part 2


Check out the follow up piece in my new series, entitled “Ground Support Drone #04″. I am loving this new exploration, It’s so different for me, but I am really enjoying it. This piece has evolved a bit in that the model kit was completely hacked apart. Very little is stock on the piece, for example the chest motor housing is made of about 15 different pieces that were cut and hacked together. Let me know what you think…?

A New Direction


So I had this idea floating in my head for several months, with bits and pieces of it lying around my studio… Well finally I can show off “Test Device #02″. A new direction from my usual graf influence, but one I am certainly glad I pursued and this will be the first in a series, so more to come. Let me know what you think.

Caps Lock?


So this Friday is my last day at work for a little under a month, Rad I know! In my time off I have a few things I need to get to, one of which is the massive stack of blank caps I have lying around. I will be painting them all up they will be up for sale in the new year so stay pealed. Here is the first done and dusted.

The Walking Dead


I have been wanting to get to this for a long, LONG time. A friend gave me a Simpsons blindboxed figure, and I have to be honest “Carl” is probably one of the most boring vinyl figures I have ever seen. But I knew he was destined for greater things and this week I finally got around to it… Zombiefied Carl, complete with fully sculpted brain and ribs. Let me know what you think!

The Taming of the Beasts


It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for rhino’s in my art, they are truly amazing beasts and the radical surge in poaching over the last few years have seen them gain some prominance in the art scene in general. Few people could have done better justice to a graf piece for the big guys than Faith47 and what better setting than Shanghai.

“Street” Art


Definitely a new take on street art… every year the small Swiss ski village of Vercorin asks artists to come and create art during the summer. Art that encompasses the whole village and puts a modern spin on the otherwise rustic setting. Love it!
