Vinyl Pulse's big custom vinyl show, VInyl Elements is coming May 17th, 2007. I've seen some sneak peaks of some of the pieces, and by the looks of the artist list this should be a really good show. Here's the details from the Vinyl Pulse website:
Vinyl Elements brings the excitement back on Thursday May 17th @ Barracuda from 7 to 10 PM. The elements the ancient Chinese believed to make up the universe Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth form the show's theme. This classic theme will be interpreted by a select international group of fifty top-flight artists including David Horvath, Frank Kozik, Nathan Cabrera (for SURU), Tado, Tim Tsui, tokidoki, Touma and more. Rather than working on one identical platform, this stellar group will present their wide range of styles and techniques across twelve different vinyl figures. Vinyl Elements, a must-not-miss event, delivers the essential elements to showcase the very best in custom toy art, piece by piece from the first to the last.
Sounds impressive, huh? With that, I really need to finish up my piece. I'm customizing a 9" Jamungo BUD- I'll try to get a couple of sneak peaks up soon...

So yesterday I went down to Robocon in Chinatown to pick up a Tofu Robot. Created by the good folks at Spicy Brown, this little guy stands about four inches tall and has five points of articulation (I think that's just a fancy way of saying his head, arms and feet move.) Anyway, they usually have this little tofu graphic on the belly, but mine is blank because I'm participating in a Custom Tofu Robot show at Robocon's gallery later this summer. Is everyone ready for Totem Tofu? Sorry, I couldn't resist.
So issue #2 of the zine, "I Want Your Skull" dropped this weekend. Once again yours truly graces the pages of this cool skull art-based zine. Ryan August (the brainchild behind it) did a great job on the first issue, and this one looks to be just as good. It also comes with a lot of extra goodies, and the packaging is top notch. This will probably sell out just as quick as issue #1 did, so jump on this folks.

Well, here is my first official blog post. I had a blog account here back in 2003, but I never used it and I believe it was lost in the hostile Google takeover (whenever that was.) Oh well, there really wasn't anything good on it anyway. Hopefully I'll be re-designing reactor-88 soon, and the "news" area over there (which is more like a blog anyway) will start being published here. Sounds like a plan...
