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!

I have 2 pieces submitted for Twisted Mickey, including 3″ Dunny “Five Nights At The House Of Mouse”. I took inspiration from a horror game series I’ve been enjoying immensely since last summer, Five Nights At Freddy’s. While not an exact recreation, I’ve had creepy homicidal animatronics on the brain!

Also for Twisted Mickey is a 4×6″ Oil on Wood panel painting “Hide And Squeak”. I was keen to paint a more realistic mouse version too- Mickey’s version of being a real mouse.

Both pieces will be available through PIQ March 14th.

Custom Trikky for Kidrobot San Francisco Hello Trikky

hellotrikkyPOSTER

Kidrobot San Francisco is feeling Trikky – bringing together a group of varied artists from across North America for “Hello Trikky” exhibition opening Oct 3. If you’re in the San Francisco area, definitely swing through their storefront location for a fun opening event.

I’ve contributed a 7″ custom Trikky inspired by Cheshire Cat, one of my favourite creepy characters, titled “Can You Stand On Your Head?” – He can!

CheshireCat_Headstand1

Cheshire Cat has long since been one of my earliest favourite fictional characters. He’s a pretty benign character, and is helpful to Alice while she’s in Wonderland- but doesn’t seem to go out of his way very much. And that always creeped me out a little, and gave me the impression Cheshire Cat had a darker or indeterminable quality to his alignment.

Swing through Kidrobot San Francisco Friday, October 3rd to view this piece and many others up close on opening night!
