“Never wrestle with pigs. You both get dirty and the pig likes it.” 

- George Bernard Shaw


Awhile back I teamed up with Retroband and Unbox Industries to create a pig-like companion figure for Retro's incredible 12 inch vinyl serial killer. We worked on the design together for a few weeks while I was sculpting it with clay. It ended up being a hybrid of lots of different animals but mostly it looked like a pig combined with a wild boar and a wolf. There have been a few releases over the last year or so and now I get to release my artist exclusive version. I went with a marbled vinyl that would look great as a blank but still be something people could buy and paint themselves if they really wanted to. The end result of the marbling has an eerie meat like quality to it. The irony of sculpting a pig and having it marbled like bacon was just too good to pass up. The marble itself is a thing of beauty. Somehow Unbox managed to mix red and white to get these deep hues of both colors in a way that actually looks like meat. The real mind-blowing thing is how some parts of the monster have a subtle translucence because they are actually marbled with bits of blue glow in the dark vinyl. I have never seen anything quite like it before. It almost looks like it's painted with glowing blue highlights but it is all just blank marbled vinyl. Thanks to my friend @thatfuckerjerry and his amazing photo skills I can share images of the glow itself.

Saturday, September 3rd they will be up for grabs in the littlerubberguys online shop.

- Tokyo Bloodbath - 


“The blood jet is poetry, There is no stopping it.”

August 27, 2016  at The Rosemont in Brooklyn, NY there is a big toy event being held. Vinyl and resin artists from around the world will have pieces up for sale along with free food and music and raffle prizes. As soon as I was invited I contacted my friend Obsessed Panda to see if he was interested in another team project. He was up for the challenge and together we came up with a twisted version of the classic Tokyo style paint application. He used a mix of yellow, green, black and red but rather then sticking to traditional sprays we decided to create the bloodbath edition. Michael used different shades of red to show the splattered, dripping aftermath of a fresh kill. We are very proud of the end result. None of this would be possible of course without incredible vinyl production work from Unbox Industries. The micro-run is limited to 5 pieces and priced at only $65 bucks each. If any are left after the one night event they will be sold online shortly after.

This month Deadly Delivery is back with an all new Trog mini-figure by Retroband and the return of my own figure The Monkey's Paw but this time it's been cast in solid black. The Trog is inspired by the cult classic flick The Pit from 1981 which is very hard to find in any format but the entire movie is on youtube for anyone interested. The Paw of course is from countless stories and movies but originally from a wonderful short story by W.W. Jacobs.

- The Zilla Edition - 


"Nature has an order. A power to restore balance. I believe he is that power."

- Dr. Ichiro Serizawa 



The very talented vinyl toy artist that goes by the name Obsessed Panda turned his sights on my vinyl mini-monster Tug O' War. He painted a very pretty micro run of 4 figures with hues of  metallic greens and golds and lots of hand brushes delicate details. Then he clear coated everything for a that solid wet shine look. I think they came out wonderfully. They will be on sale this Monday at 9am PST in his online shop for $55 dollars each.
