I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all who purchased in on the pre-order for the Clear with guts Ollie. The pre-order was a huge success and, as I write this, the vinyl order has been placed and away we go !!!
I'm hoping to have these ASAP, but will keep everyone updated right here on the MVH blog.
I'm so happy to see how well this release was received, Spasm1 did an amazing job on the illustration and I couldn't be happier.
Next, the pre-orders for both the new Death Sludge Demon and Doji San. Due to unexpected set backs with jointing issues this has taken much longer than expected.
The Death Sludge Demon is now coming out of his second wax casting and heading off to the molding very soon.
The vinyl order has been placed though and once all is good will be processed immediately.
So please hold tight, all is on the way !!!!
Thank you all so much for your patience in this, it really is appreciated very very much.
Now...... December is all about giving back !
I'm proud to say that I was able to take proceeds from the recent clear Ollie release and make donations to both the Cancer Society of America and the Special Olympics !!
So thank you all for making this possible !!
If your able to donate, I would strongly advise you to do the same, there is no better feeling than the feeling of giving to a good cause :)
If you don't feel comfortable with either, than please pick one of your own, but please if you can go for it. I promise you will be happy you donated.
I would also like to mention that this Friday I will be donating an unpainted glow in the dark Ollie to the Help Portrait project. If you have never heard of the Help Portrait please take a look :
And a few words about the project :
"Founded by Celebrity Photographer Jeremy Cowart, Help-Portrait is a community of photographers coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community.
In December, photographers around the world will be grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. When the prints are ready, the photographs get delivered.
Yep. It really is that easy.
This is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits are not for your portfolio, website, or for sale. Money isn’t involved here. This holiday season, you have the chance to give a family something they may have never had before—a portrait together.
Our mission? Our mission at Help-Portrait is simply to equip and mobilize you, the photography community. We want to make sure you have all the information that you need to successful participate in Help-Portrait on 10 December 2011. We want to help you find other people in your area that are wanting to be part of Help-Portrait or have already begun to plan the event. We want you to have the opportunity to give. "
The fund raiser for the New Haven Help Portrait will be held at BSC studio this Friday December 2nd from 7PM to 9 PM. I will be in attendance, if you live close by come on by and place a bid and hang out. There will be other amazing art as well as food and drink !
BSC Photo is located in the Erector Square building on Peck St. in New Haven. Their studio is located in building 2 unit Q. You can also reach them over the phone for more info if needed 203.936.9312.
I was also able to speak with them some more and they are willing to accept online bids for those who cant make the event !!!
So if you would like to bid on the GID Ollie online, please send your bid to :
In the header please write " I glow for Ollie "
In the body Please submit your info and your max bid.
They asked that you bid only once since its just Matt and Lindsy running everything. This is a silent auction so please send your max bid off the bat. Bidding will start at $80.00 and they will ship to anywhere in the world !
They also asked that you send your email during the hours of the reception, which again are Friday December 2nd from 7PM- to 9PM eastern time.
Remember >>>>> ALL PROCEEDS 100% <<<<<< go to this cause, this pays for all production costs, studio time actual prints and all else involved.
I think this is a great cause and again if you would like to learn more here is a few links :
Well, that is it for today. Like always is you have anymore questions drop me a line.
