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.

My amazing, beautiful and sexy wife has already given me the go ahead to attend San Diego Comic Con this summer despite the fact that our wedding anniversary falls on the first day of the con so we will be apart for our first anniversary. Our original agreement was I had to finish all my current commissions and though I have been plodding along at a great pace I don't think I'm gonna quite finish everything... but she see's I'm working hard and that it means alot to me and my continued quest to make something of this hobby. So.... not only am I going to be working on commissions but I will be working on pieces that I will have at the con. My plan is to have the custom Skelve — Skerpent in a very small number of 4 or 5 which will be the total run FOREVER and each one will have a different paint app, and I really want to start and finish a custom Dunny head sculpt that I've had in my head for quite a while. If I can get that done I will have a few painted versions and probably some blanks for the select few that might take a shot at painting him up.

We're just over 3 months away and there is so much to do... as always.

Typically I stay up really late and just get up and go to work tired but I've come to the realization that I don't take very good care of myself SO I am attempting to change from a night owl to a morning person and add in some light exercise to top it off. I'm trying to be in bed by 1 AM every night and get up with Amanda at 6, do 30 minutes of exercise with my elastic bands I got for my shoulder dislocation and then work on customs until I leave for work at 8:45. In total I will have less actual work time but I don't think much of what gets done after 3AM is really all that productive. I find myself in a bit of a half awake half asleep limbo where I get work done but I can't focus nor is the time used all that wisely. I feel like setting a specific bed time for myself is like instilling a deadline each and every day where before there was no deadline whatsoever. I think I will use my time better knowing I can only work til 1 AND I read that getting into a routine can be very healthy for your body and mind. Go to bed at the same time, get up at the same time and watch as the TCB reaches a new level. We'll see how it goes.
