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.

Staying Busy

For the few people that actually read my blog I have been just as busy as ever and clearly have not been very good about keeping up with my blog. I'm gonna make this brief... there are 2 things that are a pretty big deal —1, my time in Atlanta is just about up. Amanda and I are moving back to Louisville, Kentucky. She moved here to be with me 6 years ago, we got married, and now it's time to start thinking about the next step in our life and being around family will be crucial. So obviously there will be a short break in toy production but I will be setting up a temporary studio at our temporary location and things will keep moving as usual. Once we find a house I will then be able to set up my permanent studio hopefully with ALOT more room. And 2 — for the few people that I've told, at the end of 2013 I officially had the Headless Horseman Dunny slated for production through KR. Unfortunately KR was in serious financial trouble at the time and the months following that so ultimately a large portion of the company either left or was let go. And during this transition period my design was somehow lost... it just kind of dematerialized. Some people have been informed that their design has been cancelled but I will never get that because they have no record of it existing... which is kind of strange. I have a contract signed by both parties, I have prototype sculpt images and approval emails, correspondences with several people at the company, and no one there now seems to have any memory of The Horseman being in production. So needless to say I am disappointed and a bit confused, but I'm moving on and keeping things pointed to the future.
