aloha lolligag flyer1

Lolligag World has a new vinyl figure! “Aloha!” Lolligag is an adorable and lively new platform, themed like a sweet little hula girl. To celebrate the new platform, Lolligag World and QPop Shop & Gallery in Los Angeles are hosting a custom group show opening March 25th, 7PM.

I’m pleased to contribute a custom painted Aloha Lolligag piece to the showing. My piece, “Selene Lulamoon”, is painted with acrylics and oils, mounted on a wood base.

New Custom Dunnys

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been enjoying working on a couple new cutie little custom dunny. These are “Black Cherry Betty” (above) and “Luna”. They’re both painted in acrylics, with some aspects being airbrushed glazing layers.

I’ve been working on airbrushing for a couple of applications recently. My painted toys have been hand-painted for things like ombre colour fading and glazing in other instances.  I’m sure I’ll continue to brush paint primarily, but these juicy black cherry gloss ears Betty has were just too good not to try for.

Both pieces “Black Cherry Betty” and “Luna” are now live on my eStore here. Thank you for your support!

Thank you to everyone who visited and supported me and Deth Becomes You at our DesignerCon 2015 booth! We so appreciate the support, and the outstanding contributions to make this show the best DCon I’ve had yet. DBY debuted several new resin toys and original sculpted pieces. They were wonderful to see, even if there were few survivors to tell the tale.
