I just finished my piece for the custom Miao show at Subtext. Once again the line-up for this show is very impressive and from what I've seen so far the customs are going to be top notch. This show has been a little under the radar, but with all the artists involved I'd say this is another must-see show if you're anywhere near San Diego. At first I wasn't really sure what I was going to do with this figure, but then an idea hit me and I really like how it turned out. I've attached a little sneak peak here (sorry for the photo quality, it's pretty bad.) Once we get close to the show date I'll probably reveal the full Miao and Mousubi. Stay tuned.

So I just got back a couple of my customs from this year's SDCC. I know a few folks were interested in these and I was telling everyone these had sold (which I thought they had), but it turned out there was some miscommunication on that and pricing discrepancies which caused these to end up back in the Reactor-88 display case for now. I've also got a couple of the SDCC minis (had those for a while.) Anyway, if any of you that contacted me about SDCC customs are still interested, send me and email and we'll talk.
Here's my custom 10-inch Mad-L for Lift's Mad-L Citizens show. This is being touted as "the" show of 2008, so I thought I'd go with one of my signature Totem designs. If you're in the Detroit area on the 25th, this is a must-see show. The artist line-up is basically a who's who in the custom toy world. I'm quite honored to be participating with all this talent. The show flyer/postcard is below:

This was kind of an odd project when I got the request, but I think it turned out pretty cool. I was approached about using my Spade-Skull logo on some poker chips a few months back. The client found it by googling "spade" and "skull" thinking some cool card/gambling related artwork would pop up, and low and behold my logo caught their eye. At first I wasn't sure about it, but this was a small personal project that wasn't going to be used commercially or anything, so I figured it would be cool. It could have been really easy for this person to just grab a pic of my Spade-Skull logo off the net and use it without my permission and I'd probably never know, so I thought it was pretty stand-up that they contacted me and asked my permission, etc. Anyway, I got the samples in last week as you can see by the pic. Now if only I was a poker player I'd be making my own set now :)
