Art All Night 2013

My piece hanging at Art All Night (24 hour event of art, live music, etc!) this year.  It was a huge turn out and tons of fun, as usual.  My piece "Rustic Shipwreck" is still available, 16"x20" plus frame.  Contact me if interested :)  
I'll be posting better photos and close-ups of my piece shortly.

Yoti Howlerton

Meet Yoti Howlerton!  Yoti is my doofy little coyote friend.  He is a customized 7" Kidrobot Trikky, complete with real coyote teeth.  Like i said before, i'm really into incorporating real parts into my customs.  I just love idea and the look of it.

I had a ton of trouble with his outfit, which i spent far too many hours painting and repainting...and repainting.  It was an unbelievably stressful piece for me which is rare/annoying.  I'm pretty happy with the outcome and if anyone is interested, Yoti is still looking for a home sweet home!

Rattley Stanley: Snake Oil Salesman

Meet Rattley Stanley, the traveling snake oil salesman!  Rattley is easily my new favorite custom and i can't help but adore him.  He is a custom Kidrobot Rooz, which I've been wanting to use to make a snake for years and finally moved forward with the idea.  Rattley is especially special because i got a real rattlesnake tail as unique addition.  It even kind of rattles, which is fun.  I was concerned with how i was going to blend the real take with my less realistic sculpting, but i think it turned out well and i love the look of it.  I really love creating little kritters and over the past few years decided to start adding real animal parts to add a little extra fun.  You'll be seeing lots more of that in upcoming customs!

After i told my talented and creative friend Bill that my Rattley was going to be a business man, he suggested making him a snake oil salesman.  Stupid little me didn't know what snake oil was, so i looked it up and read all about the product and Clark Stanley who originally produced snake oil.  Genius idea for my rattlesnake!
