The February updates…

7th February, 2011

…so its been a very bust start to the year and February is already looking like I will have very little time to sit about and complain. Some very exciting projects coming up this year and already I have two of them in motion making my social life a little strained but that’s not always a bad thing.

I am hitting the studio in a week to prep my screen and get my paper sorted for my next design which will be ??? well you will have to wait but it will be around 12″ squared and have three colours to it. A nice simple design just to get me back into the process after two months of no printing. This will also just be limited to 10 copies only and as of now all my prints will get the same number run apart from my Disney/Star Wars collection, which will be kicking off again with the next print sometime in the next few months.

The wedding invites I have done for my cousins wedding are now approved and here is a sneak peak of the design. As soon as everything comes back from the printers I will stick a picture up.

Mark Nagata custom

2nd February, 2011

I love collecting art but usually it’s just way to expensive but luckily you can always rely on other Kaiju enthusiasts to help you out. Usually I would see one of these around the £250 plus mark but I scored thus bugger for £38 and that is a bargain for a hand painted toy by the legend Mark Nagata. I love the sculpted on the Tripus and the regular releases usually sell for more than I paid for this so it’s a very welcome addition to the collection.

The wedding invites I am doing are pretty much all ready for print but one last proof and off they go. Designing for family is way harder than I think people would give you credit for and with it also being a wedding it makes it even more personal but I got it nailed and pics will go up next week.

I lost some Wisdom

27th January, 2011

For the first time in… 20 years I find myself at the hands of the evil dentists as the pain over the past few days has been killing me. After being told to get down for 7am I found myself sitting reading the signs, one of which reading in very small letters ‘reception open at 8.30am’. Oh the joy filled my body and for one split second the pain in my mouth disappeared. Pitty it only came back with a vengeance.

Before I bore you with the details of the day I would firstly like to talk about the people who are also waiting in line. One man with his head in his hands, could be dead? Another couple who look like they hate each other as they ain’t spoken in over an hour followed by the sports chav in all his sporting goods. I know I an no fashion icon but fuck me, Nike, Adidas, Puma and lord behold Umbro is really a little over the top? Especially for this time in the morning but I guess each to his own.

Then in came the proud mother and father with new baby and well let’s just say that according to them they had priority, thankfully the mad bloke in the hat and the couple who hated each other both said sorry you have to wait your turn which made me not feel as bad when I also turned down their request to jump the line.

Anyway the clock seemed to move way to slow and by (sorry someone came in wearing stone wash jeans, man that’s hip) so at 9.30am I go in, by 10 I have an X-ray and by 10.20 the bugger is out. Now I am not the greatest with pain or needles but this wasn’t half as bad as I thought it would be and straight after I could feel the pain going away. That is until now as now it feels like I have been hit in the face with a hammer.

New Damnedron from Rumble Monsters

25th January, 2011

Its been a little while but Rumble Monsters kill it again and this new years Damnedron is incredible. Lets hope there are a few more of these this year as my collection is growing massively with these.

Other news… Looks like printing will happen first week of March now as I just have to much going on until then plus the fact I ain’t got my next design finished yet does not help. I should have some previews up sometime in the week along with some new works I am doing.

More toys I know and Glasgow top of the listings

21st January, 2011

Well I guess if you read this blog then you will probably know I collect toys, and well I am sorry but here is another one. Another Super7 Mummy Boy I hear you say? well your right it is and this one is amazing made with clear vinyl filled with glow in the dark filling.

Work has been crazy recently and it doesn’t look like its going to slow down but that ain’t a bad thing. I have a few projects happening now so my weekends are now destroyed but I would rather be busy. I have been sketching loads the last few weeks and I should have my new print ready soon as well but looks like this will no happen until the first week of March now due to work and going away for a few weekends. The 7377 Store will also be updated at some point and I am going to be having a small sale on my prints but more info will be posted really soon on that. Expect to have a nice bundle of my screen prints for a nice low price as I want to clear some room to 2011’s projects.

Oh and looks like Glasgow tops my analytics for place I am visited from so the first person to email me from Glasgow will get a print of their choosing and I will check it goes to a Glasgow address so no cheating.

Rest In Peace… Macbook…

18th January, 2011

Well the laptop is now dead so off to Apple it goes and lets hope its not going to cost hundreds but we will see. I might have to just go buy a new one as working on an iMac just isn’t the same. This Super7 SSSS Mummy Boy has helped the pain a little though.

A slow start to getting myself back in the studio but I am putting plenty of sketches together and things are starting to fall into place. I just need to make time more than anything as since Christmas I got the whole sitting about playing Medal Of Honor online and that ain’t healthy but it is fun.

Started on another project this month as well which will really get 2011 off to a flying start but more news on that when it happens. Oh and lastly the form on here is working fine now so if you want to contact me you can use that again.
