Well its been awhile since I dropped some new info and I apologize. I decided to hold off on any posting until I actually had some solid releases.
Where to start .... hmmmm how about one of my favorites VELOCITRON !
Ricky just hosted a show this past weekend called " Halloween Massacre" which featured many artist from all around the US and Japan. I'm pleased to say that I was part of this great show, but sad to say due to time all I was able to submit was one piece.
What I did submit though was a gem. I decided to paint up the only factory vinyl sample I received of a test for future MVH glitter vinyl. The vinyl itself is clear and infused was a special metal flake I found right here in the US. This custom is very special as its a 1 off vinyl sample !
Right now I'm in LOVE with the Satan King Walder colorway and with the way the flake makes the vinyl seem yellow was the perfect base for this.
Check it out :
I hope the person who actually scores this guy finds his way to the info posted here about what they now own.
Also in regards to this custom, I will have some LARVAGON keychains for sale soon painted in the same Satan King colors to match this custom made with the same glitter vinyl !
If you recall, Ricky recently sold his batch at Design Festa so some of you may have seen the few he painted in his chosen colors. When I have mine all finished I will post info on when they will be for sale, I cant wait !
Next up Killer J !
Recently my buddy Killer J dropped his new Sarumon figure. The release was all 1 off hand paints ( all awesomely painted if you ask me) and along with the figure you received a poster of the full run as well as a flier for an upcoming show. The upcoming customs show which I'm pleased to say I'm part of is will have the below MVH painted Sarumons. I really really love this new figure from J, the size and texture is amazing.
I was supposed to submit 5 figures for the show (One of them J keeping for his personal collection), but I loved this guy so much I couldn't part with 2 of the 5 so I had to keep them for my personal collection, sorry.
What did make it to Japan you ask, check them out :
Metallic red with metallic blue , silver and black with a pearl dusting :
Hazard orange with metallic bronze, silver and black :
And last but not least, the custom that J is keeping for himself. This was commissioned by J in colors he picked out, and I must say great choice of color. I love how this guy came !
What I ended up keeping for my personal collection was the bomb pop homage and my signature purple and green colored version. The orange one in the background is the same that is now in this show.
MVH VINYL !
Yup its now drawing close, the sludge demon sculpt is now in Japan and a week or two away from the prototyper. I'm super excited and I hope you are as well, when this guy is ready I will hold a release of 1 offs just for mailing list members !
Just a refresher in case you guys forgot about him :
MVH RESIN !!
I have been experimenting with doll eyes and the MVH head sculpt. I love how it looks and plan on doing a short run very soon so keep your eyes opened ^_-
And speaking of resin, you will be getting another update before weeks out of the first full bodied resin MVH figure !
Yup the heads where a test to see how I liked resin, and thanks to the boys over at Monstrehero I LOVE it.
So now that I have a new found love for resin you will have your first full bodied figure to add to you collection soon. The figure will be based off the yoki character Abura Sumashi. I love thsi character and have been wanting to do something similar in design. I wanted to see what a figured based off of Abura Sumashi would look like if he was a super old Yoki hundreds of years old now, he only has one tooth left, one of his horns if now broken and he is to weak to do any mischief, he just likes to instigate trouble. I think you guys will dig this little old man monster so keep an eye on you mail box !
MVH in magazine ?
Yup I will be featured in the upcoming issue of clutter magazine. So keep them eyes pealed and when I have more info you will be first to be informed, I may even do a little something special to celebrate the issue here.
I know this was a LOT to take in, so digest and enjoy, good things are in the works.
