Chainsaw Panda by @Pausedesigns is Back

Well, kinda.  I had made five more pandas a while back so that Pause could experiment with a new colorway.  Well, he's painted them up and will be selling them on his site this Friday.  Each on of these were sculpted by me just like the original limited edition we made.  I sent them to him and he has painted five different versions.  If  you missed out when we sold them before, this might be your last chance to grab one.  Good luck.

The Woodcarver: Custom Horselington

Here's my latest custom.

The Woodcarver has worked diligently to create his own private fishing boat.  Not quite there yet for this first timer and he may have overestimated the scale of his plans but he'll make due cause he's got visions of pike fishing in his head. Hewn from a large pine tree trunk and root, this chunk of wood is slowly becoming a thing of fancy. To keep him going the Woodcarver drinks copious amounts of brew and ocassionally chomps down on some fresh bread made by his sweetie. He loves working on his craft.  He could do this forever.

Black Friday Sale: 50% Off Everything

Hi shoppers.  I've put everything on sale in my store including my AP Kozik Busts.  Everything is 50% so if you wanted a Kozik bust but could not afford this is going to be your best bet.   There are also t-shirts, stickers and a few older toys that are at really low prices.  Happy shopping.

The Man Inside, Custom Kozik Bust

And the final custom Kozik bust for my kickstarter backers.  I kept this one for last as it was really the most fun bust to do.  I enjoyed them all, but this one was a blast, and only made me feel slightly creepy and stalker-ish as I stared for days at pictures of Frank.  It's kinda a reverse Jason Freeny piece.  Check out some WIP pics below.  Yeah, that's a mold you see there.  So who knows, maybe I could make a series of smaller ones.

White Dead Kozik Bust

Now available in a limited white edition of 50 pieces
Distributed by DKE TOYS and available at fine designer toys stores

Stone Kozik bust with Mickey ears

The first custom bust I did for the kickstarter rewards earlier in the year.  I was waiting to post this because it's not quite done yet.  The client is an artist as well and we decided to make it a collaboration.  So in a few places I left the piece bare to the gesso for them to paint.

Rat Fink Custom Kozik bust

Here's another custom kozik bust for the kickstarter rewards.  This was a fun piece to work on and more than a little creepy at times.  Still, my 4 year old daughter loved him.

Delftware Dead Kozik Bust

Here's another Kozik bust I finished a little while ago.  Originally I had intended to just use a crackle medium to get an aged look for this piece but the medium just didn't work the way I wanted so instead I spent the next few weeks painting lines until I lost my sanity. 

Dead Kozik Artists Proofs and Summer Sale

OK, it's time for me to get rid of a few things if I can.  I have some older pieces sitting around taking up space and some newer items taking up much much more.  I'd like to make some space in my office and house.

First and foremost are my artist proofs of the Kozik bust colorways that I've already released. These guys are taking up way too much room in my house.  So if you want an artist proof with domestic shipping included in the order, head over to my shop and get one.There are 6 different colorways including the two kickstarter exclusives you might have missed, RED and GID.  I'm only selling 4 right now so if you want one of the very popular GID, better get them now.  There is also Charcoal Grey, Green, Orange and Pink.

And for select items on my site
I'll be taking up to 50% off. 

Please, I need the room.  And money, that would be nice too.

Pink Dead Kozik Bust

Rip Van Chuckboy and Angkor Goss

Here are a couple pieces done for one of my very favorite clients.  The client came up with the rough concepts and I was allowed to go with it as usual.

With the Chuckboy dunny I was asked to have nature overcome the machine and have one of my trees grow up around it.  I couldn't wait to turn the dunny into a skeleton.  The client also requested my Ready for Bedtime Bunny which has become a reoccurring character for me.  The bunny's name is actually Penny after my dog Penny who has a spot over one eye much like the bunny.  Penny is getting older and naming the bunny after her allows me to keep her with me as time goes by.  So when you see a Ready for Bedtime bunny, you'll know I'm thinking about her.  ANYWAYS... it would seem our cyborg wasn't your T-100 model but a softy who carried around it's stuffed animal and there it lies until one day nature will completely devour them both.  How nice.

As for the Madl, it's the next in our series of ancient temples.  This guy was a lot of fun to make.  I mean who doesn't love looking at pictures of Angkor Wat?  One of the things I love about commissions is the research phase when I have to learn everything I can about a subject.  I had always had interest in Angkor Wat but knew very little about it and now I'm just dying to get there one day. One day.  Turns out, for those not in the know, Angkor Wat is a particular temple of many within Cambodia that makes up the remains of the lost Khmer civilization.  I ended up blending in various elements from a few temples to make up my Angkor Goss.  The general structure is representative of many temples but the Buddha face is from the Bayon Temple and the recognizable bayon tree is from Ta Prohm. As for the name Angkor Goss, that was the clients idea and I think it's catchy so Angkor Goss it is.
