As June Comes to a Close

Some exciting things have come to be this month. I am getting prints and sticker made of my Steampunk Cthulhu character. I should get the stickers in a couple of weeks. I will order 5 prints from a local shop here in Austin. 

The Sticker Image

Steampunk Cthulhu Print

I am also working on my first Munny and Steampunk Duck combo. 
I drew a sketch of a 'Dapper Dude' with a bit of Steampunky flair to him. I am thinking I might make him into a sticker too.

Jerry's Had a Show

Munny Show at Jerry's

Earlier this month one of my favorite art stores decided to have a Munny Art Show. The store is called Jerry's Artarama and it is a super cool place for many of your art needs. 

They just recently began selling the Munny Vinyl Figures by Kidrobot, which is really great because then I can use a Groupon to get some there. 

Anyway, lets get back to the show. I took my Steampunk'd Trikky, mainly because it was the only one I had and there was no time to make another. 

It was loads of fun. I was able to see more great 
custom work and meet some interesting people. 

Three days after the show this piece sold. There is talk that the Munny Show may become a seasonal event. They are toying with a dinosaur theme. I am okay with that, but I think I would prefer have it open to see what people come up with. Plus my current idea won't fit with the dinosaur theme. 

Check out the work from the other artists at the Jerry's Artarama Facebook Page.

 I tend to work on several projects at a time. One of the bigger ones at the moment has to do with these little guys. Well, they really aren't THAT little. They measure 7" tall. They are a vinyl blank that was created by LittlehouseDesigns , and they are call the YO!

How did I get into these? Well, it all started with Instagram

Back in February of this year, 2013, I decided to join Instagram and start posting WIP (work in progress) pictures of my art. LittleHouseDesigns began following me and liked my work on the vinyls and my own Steampunk Buddy creations. 

They offered me a chance to customize four of the YOs for their 'Blind Box' sale at the upcoming Designer Con in California.

The Google Droid - My New Passion


This year has just been filled with new discoveries. First it was the Munny vinyl dolls. Now I have discovered that the Google Mascot comes as a blank vinyl. 

PLUS there is a whole underground of Google Droid collectors and customizers. I had to try it. And well...I'm hooked. 

Android Toy
Copper Droid April 2013
This copper one was my very first go at customizing a droid. They consist of four pieces, the head, the arms and the body and it's only about three inches tall. 

The first was a custom order. I had a blank droid just sitting on the shelf waiting for me to come up with an idea. The buyer was a fan of my Steampunk Buddies and requested a similar style. There was the idea I had been waiting for!  

I learned a few DOs and Do Nots in the process. Let's start with what you should NOT do. It is much shorter.
