Celebration of life

It's been a long while since i last posted, work has just been all encompassing this past year with all sorts of changes and more on the way no doubt.
This month marked a special occasion for friend and fellow co-worker Craig Mackay as he and his wife had their third son, Benjamin. I was asked to make a personalized "welcome back/ congratulations" card to celebrate Craig's return to the office for everyone to sign, and here it is. I was inspired by Miyazaki's Ponyo when drawing little Ben.

Abin Sur

I did this Munny figure for another show in Pasadena this past weekend with my friend Craig Mackay. The theme for the show was "Lucky", hence the dead spaceman in the green suit! Abin Sur, for those of you unfamiliar with comic lore, was the first Green Lantern (silver age) to patrol the sector of space which Earth is part of. Before he dies , as a result of crash landing on earth, he hands over the fabled Green Lantern power ring to Hal Jordan, a U.S. test pilot, who then turns into earth’s emerald protector.

I did this here Munny figure for a show at "The Noise Academy" show last weekend in Pasadena. My friend and fellow co-worker Craig Mackay, did one as well, you can view it on his blog.

I did this "Heart Vader" Munny rather quickly, in only about eight hours. For my next stab at doing one of these things, i'll take a bit more time, i hope.

German Armor

I'm a WWI-II nut and I often get some cool books filled with photos for reference, and a few toys. A few years ago I started collecting 1/6th scale military figures, mostly WWII, from companies like Dragon and Blue Box Toys from China. This new collecting addiction I blame on my friend Taesoo Kim.

A new comer to the 1/6th scale market was America’s Sideshow collectables who currently do an awesome 1/6th scale Star Wars line, but I digress. Among one of Sideshow’s toy line in the past few years was their WWI collection, among one of their WWI figures was a cool German Trench Raider in body armor! I was so impressed by the cool lobster style breastplate and spiked mace that i had to get one! A couple years later I was fortunate to receive a DK Eyewitness book featuring that very same German Body armor from 1916!!

Head studies

I did a few head studies a while back for a work project, these were the rejects. I kind of liked some of these, but oh well, it was not up to me what the final version was to look like.
