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.

2 Days to go

The big project is about to come to a close, thankfully. I have been working on these 2 Mega Munny's non-stop for the last 2 weeks and I have to have them finished and shipped by Wed afternoon. I still have a ton of work to do but I have alot done as well. I have all the sculpting done, I have both jackets completely sewn together and finished, I have the glasses cut and ready for paint, I have the base colors down on both heads and about to start the faces, I have both bases just about finished with paint, I have the plexi glass lenses cut for her glasses and I'm going to be molding and casting the lenses for his goggles so I have the masters sculpted and fitted and my silicon is arriving today. It was a pain in the ass too because sculpey shrinks slightly when you bake it so it kept jusssstttt not fitting. I have to screen print the logos on the back of the jackets, make their name tags and sculpt their accessories...and I guess that's it :) Their accessories are a biopette, which is a high tech pipette, and something called a sequencing chip, which I have no idea what that is but I know what it looks like. I'm going to cut the  sequencing chips out of 1/8 plywood and pant them, and the biopette frame will be cut from the same material but then will be sculpted out from that as if it were the central axis and then I will mold and cast that as well since i need 2 of them. I have the faces all mapped out already so I just need to transfer the line art onto the face and paint in the varying shades which I have mixed already as well. I went to bed at 5 last night and I'm sure I will be up as long as I have to be tonight and tomorrow. If I have to I will push the biopette and sequencing chips to Wed night and overnight them to Boston On Thursday.

Like I said, still alot of work to do, but I think the end is in sight.


  1. LOL! it would be funny if you were making something for Illumina. Sequencing: http://www.illumina.com/applications/sequencing/dna_sequencing.ilmn

  2. It's not for Illumina, but for another Genetics company, Ion Torrent. Mark, are you in that field?
