Here are the final pics for BROKEN, my Kracka custom for the Dragons Custom Toy Show at the SHO Gallery in Wales, UK. There are 49 customs in the show, which you can see here. Part of the proceeds of sales go towards diabetes research.
Broken is a baby dragon who wishes to fly with the big dragons, but he is too young and his wings are too small. He knows he is not ready to fly yet, but he is impatient and wants to overcome this obstacle. Recently he attempted to fly with the conviction of his heart, but he fell and broke himself. Broken will try to fly again someday, once his heart is healed.
Teaser pic of my Kracka custom for the upcoming ‘Dragons Custom Toy Show‘ in August. More pics coming soon…
I made these twin Android customs for Dragatomi‘s blind box series at SDCC 2012. They are entitled ‘Me & You’.
If you’re in Málaga this weekend, come check out the Save & Destroy art show that’s being held at the Animacomic convention. I will be showing one of my paintings along with art from other international artists. I’m really looking forward to seeing what all the artists have done with the Kaiju (monster) theme.
I’m also excited that the Picasso Museum is in Málaga too… I’m ready for lots of inspiration this weekend!

The Swiss hip hop magazine 14K took some great pics from the opening night of ‘Fantastic Heroes’ at The Trace Gallery. I’ve posted some below, but you can check out the rest of the pics here!
It was an amazing opening night + lots of people showed up! I got to meet so many people (who were forgiving enough to speak English with me – thank you!). I chatted all night, but the night went by so fast… I wish I had more time to talk with more people! My friend SmallStuffPepe came by and it was really nice to see him again (he took some pics of the opening, featured on Toysrevil’s blog here). Lots of other artists came by to check it out, including Swiss artist Michel Casarramona (it looks like we are in very serious discussions below.. haha!). Drinks were supplied by Hendricks (gin + tonic + cucumber = awesome), which was a nice treat!
The owners of Trace Gallery did an incredible job organizing the show, and I really can’t thank them enough. Their generosity was unending, and I came away from Zürich with the impression that the people there are very warm and friendly. They made my time there very precious, and I can’t wait to go back. And of course a big thanks to my partner in crime Cee, who was wonderful to finally meet! It was great chatting with him about art, he’s a very energetic and inspirational person. I hope I get to work with him again in the future sometime!
‘Fantastic Heroes’ opens on December 8th at The Trace Gallery in Zürich, Switzerland. It’s a two person show with me, and the artist Cee. I will be showcasing new vinyl, plush, canvases and prints. Cee will be showing illustrations, drawings and prints. I’m super excited about this show as I have a large amount of new work to unveil, and I will be there on opening night! The show runs through the end of December.
This little guy was created for the custom group show ‘Beware Tall Grass’, held tonight at Kidrobot London! He was inspired by a little fiery Japanese monster.
“Rawr has quite the temper and turns into a blazing ball of fire when provoked. He upsets easily, so be nice around him unless you want to be cooked to a nice crisp. What a jerk!”
Stop by Kidrobot London (19 Earlham Street, WC2H 9LL) if you’re in the area.
This Friday is Tales From The Sneaky Crypt, a group art show hosted by Sneaky Raccoon. It features urban vinyl customs by many artists, including myself. The opening is on Friday, October 28th, 6-10pm at Kid Robot London (19 Earlham Street, WC2H 9LL). There will be lots of events: live t-shirt printing, live drawing, a raffle, treats, and proceeds of all sales go to charity. Customs will not be revealed until the opening, so unfortunately I can’t show what I’ve been working on. But you can get a chance to look at all the customs (and purchase one if you wish) HERE on Friday night! The show runs through the weekend, ending on Halloween night. Come by Kid Robot if you’re in the neighborhood and check it out!
