Here are some pics of my custom painted Totem Stitch for Disney’s Stitch Experiment 626 Project Custom Art Tour. This toy was a blast to paint- Mindstyle has been really hitting it out of the park lately. I was quite honored to be asked to participate in this event. There's an incredible line-up of artists both local and international that are participating, and from what I've seen of the work so far everyone is bringing their A-game. Even better, all the pieces are up for sale with some of the proceeds going to charity. The tour starts this Friday in Hong Kong and ends in Hawaii. I don't have a full tour schedule yet but I'm pretty sure there's an LA stop- I won't miss that. For more info about the show, check out Vinyl Pulse.

Here are some new 3-inch Dunny customs I just finished up. I like to paint minis once in a while. I use them as a way to relax while I'm working on other projects. I try to have at least one mini in progress while I'm working on various commissions and show pieces. They're so small I can turn them around a lot faster, which is nice when I'm consistently working on the same large piece for weeks on end. These four little guys have been in a various stages of completion since the beginning of summer. After I finished my custom Stitch, I decided to take a little break and finish these guys up. I was in a flocking mood for a while, so most of my recent minis have been flocked, and I followed suit with three of these four. The little black and white one was supposed to be a Halloween skeleton guy, but the 31st came and went really fast. Anyway, I'm already back plugging away at my commission list, but I'm hoping to turn out a couple more minis before the end of the year. Stay tuned.

No spolier pics yet, but I was invited to customize one of the new Mindstyle Stitch toys for this tour. I'm sure most folks can pretty much guess what my Stitch is going to look like :) For a bit more info about the tour, check out the post on Vinyl Pulse.

Friday I finished a hush-hush project that is my last major commitment of 2008, so now it's back to commissions for the rest of the year. I got back into it by finishing up this custom 6-inch Unipo this weekend. This little guy was essentially done early this year, but he got put on the back burner as my schedule of shows and things really got a bit overloaded. Thankfully the owner of this piece is one of the nicest folks I know, so she was cool with the wait. If all goes well I'll turn out a few more commissions before the end of the year along with some random minis that will be up for grabs- until then...

Since the Miao custom show preview went up a few days ago, I figure it's okay for me to post a full shot of my custom Miao (and Mousubi). You check all the customs out at Subtext's blog by downloading the pdf preview. And don't forget to check out the show this Friday if you're in the San Diego area.
