About Me

I am a professional graphic designer and right now I am moon lighting as a toy customizer. Every waking minute outside of work I commit to painting and sculpting custom toys.

Past Few Weeks

I've been a bit quiet since I finished my 3A pieces. I've been trying to get a bit more sleep but obviously I've been working on projects still. I am waist deep in my Most Wanted 3 figures of which the sculpt is done but I still need to nail down the design. I'm working on a Hexadecimal Mini Munny that will have 5 interchangeable faces that is turning out really great. And I just finished up this huge project for my day job that involved a good range of my skills from digital composing and file prep to sculpting, molding, production and custom packaging. I also recently visited the High Museum to see the Kaws installation. His show at the High opens in February and he will be live painting for 5 days and since Amanda and I have memberships I will be going to watch him paint as often as I can. I also made some gift boxes for my 2 sisters and Amandas 2 sisters to help them pick out their dresses for the wedding in Hawaii in July. Most of the contents were Amandas ideas and I designed the box and whatnot. The right compartment holds a chalkboard Munny. Here are some pics from the last few weeks.

Hexadecimal with a blank face. The faceplate comes right off and is held on with a magnet.
 Most Wanted 3 proto.
Box for work. I had to make 20 identical boxes.

Original donut sculpt. I made a silicone mold from this sculpt and popped 20 copies using Alumalite white resin.You can see Hex's faceplate in this pic too and I used the same resin to pop 5 versions of the faceplate.
 Super cute Amanda. The Companion is sweet too.

I pass Dinosaur World every time we go to KY. I need to go there eventually.

 Gift boxes for Amandas brides maids...our 4 sisters. Each one was personalized.

Process Shots

So now that my 3A customs are finished here are some process shots. Sometimes I'm really good about taking them and others I'm not. One thing I can say is my work space gets larger and more cluttered by the day.
