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.

Portraits of Imaginary Friends Exhibition April 7

peculiar beasts invite

Things have been a little quiet on my social media outlets, but I’m pleased to say I have a small collection coming to Saint Germain Gallery for Portraits of Imaginary Friends exhibition. Several new oil paintings, an ink illustration, and a collaborative painting with fine artist Kristian Adam will be contributed to Portraits of Imaginary Friends.

treasure hunter preview1

As a kid, I didn’t have imaginary friends the same way other kids may have (I probably have more of them now as an adult than I did as a kid). I would have loved to have a little dragon buddy to go out into the garden with, flipping over rocks and looking for treasure. “Treasure Hunter”, wip previewed above, will be an 8×10″ ink illustration at Portraits of Imaginary Friends exhibition.

Beatrix Potter stories and characters played a big role in my early childhood. In tribute, I’m preparing a portrait of Peter Rabbit. Full artwork images, and new completed pieces will be revealed as we near the exhibition April 7th at Saint Germain Gallery, Penticton BC.

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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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 DesignerCon 2015

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.

Thank you to friends and fans who visited and took home new pieces, sketches and visited to catch up. It was a blast!
