Drone Support

May6

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!

Part 2

January3

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

December20

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.

The Walking Dead

November16

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!

New Custom Munny from The Given

August14

Over the last few weeks I have been working through some flu to bring out my latest custom, it’s a 4″ Munny created for an employee at Kidrobot. I had been wanting to do a black and pink toy for a long time and I am stoked with how this one came out. Unfortunately I had to rush my pics at the eleventh hour on this one and they arnt the greatest I am afraid. Anyway I hope you guys dig it, let me know what you think.

Hot Rod Paws

June12

What an honour to get to custom as epic a piece as the Coarse Paws Raw and what a long way from my humble beginings on 3″ Dunny’s.Decided to go with simple yet bold on this piece with poping colours, but not without issue. Let me warn you, NEVER try and drop yellow onto a grey primer base, 20 coats, no jokes. But all in all great fun, so here it is “Hot Rod Paws”.
