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.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012


Over time I've undoubtedly gotten better at making customs. My style has evolved, my technique has improved and I've learned alot over the last 3–4 years. So it's really not a surprise when some of my early pieces need some repairs and lifetime repairs are included in the initial cost. I have a few that I need to fix and here are 2 classics that I just dropped off with their original owner.

Before and after. There was quite a bit of damage on Toads head so I had to dig alot of the not quite cured sculpey outta there, fix the sculpt and repaint almost the entire head. I also repainted the blue and the white on his body so there was some repaint there as well.

Luigi just had some slight damage on his neck socket so I repaired that and didn't have to do alot of repainting. You can see my lines have become less random and a bit more bold. I think my current style is definitely a step up but you can clearly see how it has developed. 
In April it will be 3 years since the Chomping at the Bit show.

For those of you waiting on repairs...they will go out before the end of the year.

Thanks for your patience.

Turkey Day

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone and I'd like to think I'll have some time to work but Christmas is right around the corner. I actually have NO Christmas projects this year which is actually a relief. I always make the deadlines but it tends to be a bit more stressful if I have stuff that has to be done. I have a few things that are tentative for the holidays but nothing that is a gift for someone.

I finished the Old vs. New Kidrobot Mascot figures I did and those went off without a hitch. I have to commend the guys running it, Pat and Sekure D, as they are saving money by having each artist ship AND I got paid like the day after the sale.... unlike MW which has turned into a giant cluster fuck. Mostly due to "He who shall not be named!" Who is nowhere to be found yet a box or 2 will be shipped each day. Dudes been ignoring everyones messages and still owes a couple grand to various artists. My feeling is that money is long gone. I don't know if it's medical bills, taxes or maybe even drugs... but it is completely FUBAR and unless someone goes to LA and punched him in the face and takes back the rest of the figures I don't think there's anything we can do.

Moving forward, I have a close friend here in town that has taken an interest in me finishing more work so he has become my motivational manager. We sort of made up that moniker since he's really just my friend who encourages me to work instead of doing really anything else. Hhahahah. So far it's working out but I have alot to do and we'll see if I can chip away at this pile before the end of the year.

I've got alot on my desk right now but I'm hoping to finish these by the end of the year:

Thor/Captain America/Iron Man resin piece

3" Dunny's

Muppets - Floyd, Animal, Lips
Breaking Bad - Jesse and Walt
Adventure Time - Bubblegum and Marceline
Birro Mutations x2

These much larger projects are in the works will most likely go into the new year


Paw x 2

And I have many more projects than just those so if you're not on the list....fear not. I've got everything in queue there's just alot to list.

http://thejerkstore.storenvy.com is closed. Thank you everyone. I expect to have the prints done and shipped by the middle of November so be on the look out for shipping confirmations.

And like I said, I'm putting together something special to make it easier for you to help the Horseman get made into a production piece.

Thank you!!!

HH Prints

Prints are still on sale, at least til 4 pm today, and a decent amount have been sold but I'd like to get the number up a bit more...which would still be a very reasonable number.

Considering this is part of a campaign to get this piece put into production, I'm in the works of developing a small press kit for my loyal fans that support me during this initial sale. What that means is I'm going to give many of you who purchase an opportunity to earn a FREE customized AP... IF and when it makes it into production. I'm not going to get into the details right now, but if things develop with KR you'll be very happy that you put in the money, time and effort right now. 5 more hours for the sale, and regardless of how many sell it will DEFINITELY end at 4 pm.

Thanks again for the support everyone!
