- They Ooze We Sleep - 


This project was a fun collaboration between some of my favorite toy people. Always been a huge fan of the movie so doing stuff inspired by that film was a blast. The rubber ball and claw with the stand were my designs and sculpts of course. The paint work was another killer Joe Whiteford application. The new eyes were added by Eric Nilla. The 'They Live' sunglasses came straight from 8-Bit Zombie. And the wonderful header artwork was taken from new prints by Worthy Enemies(the full poster is available in his shop right now). The mini-zine was a team up effort from myself and Eric as well. There were only a small number of these made but they go up for sale in Eric Nilla's online shop Friday February 5th at 12pm(noon pst).

The baby bat 
Screamed out in fright, 
"Turn on the dark, 
I'm afraid of the light."

- Shel Silverstein


This project is a collaboration with myself, Unbox Industries and Brandt Peters. I originally sculpted this monster just 3 inches tall. The bat design was my own while the skull was based on The Skelve character created by Brandt Peters and The Stranger Factory. Once Unbox became involved they thought taking the figure from 3 inches tall to just over 10 inches would be more fun. I think they were right. The first release is up right now at the Unbox online shop. Two beautifully marbled vinyl versions are available for a limited time pre-order. The blue orchid which is a deep slightly translucent blue mixed with a lighter shade of pink and a bubblegum version which is lightly mixed with a purple nightshade hue. Neither version is painted at all. Just very nicely marbled vinyl.

Working with Eric Nilla and Joe Whiteford was an absolute blast when we did a painted run of these evil little furballs. My design and sculpt with Nilla's production and Whiteford's stunning paint work made for a great collaboration.

Sticker fun.

"Earth people give good blood."


This alien monster sculpt was loosely inspired by the banned episode of Ultraseven from the 1960's. There is a long history behind the episode itself which caused an outrage in japan when the radiation scarred creatures were mistakenly described as a-bomb survivors in a japanese publication. They were actually just aliens from a radiated planet who came to earth so they can feed on the blood of humans. Regardless the episode caused a stir and was pulled never to be shown again in japan. Purely by accident when the series was dubbed and released on TNT many years later in hawaii it aired again. Once the contract rights to airing the dubbed episodes ended it was once again pulled from the series and buried forever. Even the "Official Complete Ultraseven Series" dvd boxed set that released recently was missing that episode. You can sometimes
find it on youtube but it gets removed pretty quickly.

So taking some inspiration from that creature I created my own version. It was released in a few solid color rubber versions of course and in a very limited hard resin painted special edition version with a ton of extras like classic 3D header cards and 3D glasses. An authentic vintage toy watch made to resemble the evil alien watch from the show that actually fires tiny missiles. That particular version was a blast to make with Eric Nilla(who handled the molding/casting and graphics)and Joe Whiteford(who hand painted each figure)and we held just a handful of them back so every now and then we can let another collector snag one even though no more will ever be made.
