Bomb Disposal Bunny

Here's my initial WiP sketch of 'Bomb Disposal Bunny' using a figure called 'Olee' by marine/Jouwe....


....plenty more work to be done here even though the figure is quite small, standing around 8cm tall. Hopefully more will be added over the weekend.

Vinylmore at Atomic Pop

Well....this is a lil late but the show kicked off on Friday 7th and will run until April 4th. If you're in the area, go take a look there's plenty of cool customs to see plus there's the vinyl and book store to browse ....The opening night looked very well attended and appears as though a good time was had by all....


These photos are from Sugarfreaks' Flickr where many more shots of the opening and the work can be found. There was also a nice little review of the show in the Baltimore City paper.

Atomic UniPo

This is my piece for the Vinylmore show at Atomic Pop....

Unkl is one of my favourite toy companies and they produce some of the finest vinyl out there, so in creating this UniPo I wanted to keep a little of the essence of the character and not totally change the look of it. I like how this was developing but unfortunately I ran out of time to fully explore the possibilities....so there will definitely be more to come in this vein......

Captain Billy

Captain Billy is the second figure in my series of custom Billy Bronze figures using the idea of a child’s fantasy superhero character.....

Dark Billy

Dark Billy is the first figure in my series of custom Billy Bronze figures using the idea of a child’s fantasy superhero character.....The idea being that these figures represent a gang of kids dressing up as their favourite characters. Not necessarily going to a fancy dress party or anything....just out having fun.

Original Figure

Some work-in-progress shots


The finished figure
Using a combination of Milliput and Super Sculpey I added the extra features to the figure then painted it using Liquitex acrylics.

White Tara

White Tara was the first custom vinyl toy I made. The base figure for this is a Crossing Guard from Nathan Jurevicius's Scary Girl City Folk series....with it's concept originating in the Tibetan branch of Vajrayana Buddhism....essentially the White Tara is known for compassion, long life, healing and serenity....

Original Figure

1st stage - Stripping paint and unwanted features.


2nd stage Adding parts and undercoating.
