Smells like Teenage backne

Wanted to put something up on the blog so I scanned some of my moleskines in. They are the small ones that fit in your pocket I carry them around to class to write notes or doodle or whatever so here's some of my pen madness.

Cover #1 sorry the scans a pretty bad. I didn't really edit any of these images so it's a mess...but in a good way?

Cover #2

Dripping up?

You'll be seeing more of this thing...

Also been working on my next resin figure. Been listening to Nirvana and working on the sculpt all day, I'm tired and full of teen angst. ha here's a little preview

WKY TOY TALKIE and others.

On Halloween I got an awesome package from WEKILLYOU. He's been holding all of my purchases recently to send them all at once. When I first got into toys I stumbled apon Justin's work and I instantly had to have his ghost boy figure that was coming out. That was last year a little before Halloween, he released 4 figures that month all in a row. Knowing how the whole resin thing works now I find that project extremely ambitious. But besides the fact I bought his toys every week and I still buy every figure he puts out and anything else people are putting up for sale. Here's a picture of my whole collection.

Ha I look at my collection and can't help but think I must be paying Justin's rent just by everything I buy from him, but I find it hard to pass up anything he releases.

These are all the new figures I got in my package. I mostly wanted to write to talk about how awesome these guys are. From sculpt to colorways I am really blown away by how good these guys look. Justin's work has only been getting better and better and the style on his newer figures really seem to stick out from anything else resin or vinyl toy artist are doing. Especially in this BLAMO custom he recently did

Justin made this one of a kind "Pumpkadet" custom from two molds. I sent Justin a custom Mr. Odobenus and I was lucky to get this in return. This guy is extremely awesome and I'm so psyched to own it!


WKYxIII Heaviest resin crew ever.

Mummy Broach

I'm gonna have to take a new family photo soon. But you all should go check out WEKILLYOU.NET and buy a shirt or a broach and support this awesome dude.

On the note of toys, heres a little photo of what else I have been picking up with the little cash I have.

I really don't collect much vinyl anymore, but I find Le Merde's Hollis the best toy ever! I think it is mostly the size he's so tiny be looks amazing and the fact that he is only $25 if you can get him from Super 7. The colors are bold and it really captures a Le Merde resin in this little vinyl figure. They are still in their bags cause I'm waiting to get a few more colorways I'm missing. But I had to post a picture cause this toy is awesome. I wish more toy companies would take note in what SUPER 7 is doing, cause their small family figures are killin it! Also on Le Merde, Giant Robot's Biennale went on sale last week. Lots of awesome work from 3 of my favorite toy artist check out the shop...but don't even think about picking up one of those Le Merde Resins...(I'm saving up for one)

One last thing, I've been sketching up for my next releas. Sculpt should be done before thanksgiving (if I can find the time) I plan I doing a bunch of sculpts of some sketches I have and picking a few to cast. Here's two sketches of some characters I'm working on.

Pizza Man!

More updates soon!

Booty House Halloween.

Sorry for the "long time no blog" status. I have of course been busy with school and work and all that life stuff. So let me catch you guys up on some stuff.

Last week I was thinking about my good friend Jake, He's been in El Salvador for a few months now. I miss him a lot. He made me this sweet booty house mix tape to listen to before he left.

I felt my walkmen did not do justice to this awesome tape. So I did a little custom to it.

If any one has a sweet walkmen they want me to paint you should hit me up! (but only walkmens...)

I leave you with a pic of us from 2 years ago. Booty House Ballers '09 droppin 24 karats

I got some images of some school work, I wish I could scan in a few things I've drawn this year but I'll post what I have snapped photos of.

Pen and Watercolor. There is a third drawing to these bu it doesn't fit in my scanner, maybe I'll find some time to go to the big scanner at school and scan it in.

My teacher wanted me to build a pedestal for this instillation I wanted to do. So I did. I'm actually really proud of this thing, I almost didn't want to paint it white. It wobbles a little but I still think this thing alone is the best thing I've ever made!

Art??? Here's pictures of the instillation. Sorry for the bad photos they are from my phone.

Here's some drawings I did based on these short minute long videos I made.

And a sweet doodle page. As you can see my inspiration doesn't show through very much in my school work. I'm really diggin' the bad to the bone drawing. Jail tat worthy...Rocco?

I know Halloween was a while ago but I figured I'd post a few pictures from that weekend.

Kev's kozik collection has become so large that he is now officially a box hoarder..(ouch)

Kev has most of my doodles. 3-d action on the bottom right (WTF)

Dry Bones getting Spooky

Jackie not as spooky for some reason...

Jackie made a cute shark. We were Eagle Vs. Shark but I don't have a group shot of us.
