suitable for the weather

Well the snow is quite bad up here at the moment. We have about 5inches so far so I think the following pic is quite suitable. This is a custom I did on Shin Tanaka's Tobio Figure, just geussed he might like a friend...

If anyone would like to see any of my other work I have a page over on Nice Paper Toys, which is a great site to get involved in and help with the community of artists

Customs of Shin Tanaka's T Danke Boy

Here are some customs that I did of Shins Latest Creation....

Love movement

LOVE MOVEMENT is an art show using vinyl toys to deliver universal messages about love. After reflecting on the lack of love in the world, recently married artists, Shin Tanaka and Nao Shimojo, sent blank versions of their character toys to over 50 other artists around the world, including some who are also couples. The artists were asked to customize the toys with their designs and be part of the LOVE MOVEMENT. Each artist's interpretation is different from the next. So far we have ruminations on procreation, war and space travel...

The finished works from Japan, America, Australia and Europe will be exhibited at SUPERFROG Gallery in San Francisco. LOVE MOVEMENT is free and open to the public from December 11th through January 16th. Shin and Nao are flying in for the opening reception, which will feature original art toys and canvases, a Japanese beatboxer, live painting by Shin and animation by Shin & Nao. LOVE MOVEMENT is Shin & Nao's first major art show in the US. They used their own money to manufacture and ship 100 vinyl toys to other artists. Shin and Nao view their figures as little messengers of love.

Here is a model that shin has released for the event...

Ecco Ltd Competition

I have been doing some work for entry into the Ecco clothing competition. You had to custom a template of thier rhino logo.
These two I have sent in the "proper rhino look" was done by myself the other "pink rhino" was designed by my wife, so you never know...

Coming back

Well its been a while since i posted anything but hopefully all will change soon.

I am working on a model from He has created a giant papermodel of the Transfomers Optimus Prime and I have been working on it for a couple of months now and hopefully will have it finished soon, here is a picture of it that someone else has done, it looks most impressive.

All i have left to do is finish off it's second leg and another arm, I have built it this way as i was getting fed up making the fingers (51 parts per finger!!) and decided to move on to the legs but hopefully i will have some decent pics online soon.
