In Progress: 6 mini resin figures for NYCC 2013

Another collab with Argonaut Resins on the way with 6 resin mini figures of: Tuttz, Pharaoh Hound, and Sucio the mouse! I’m excited to work on them because it’s a bit of a challenge to work on such a small scale (all are under 5 inches), and to add to the mix three of them glow in the dark! These guys will be released at New York Comic Con, October 10-13, 2013.

Urban Vinyl: Renegade 8″ resin Tuttz custom

Presenting… RENEGADE…! He’s my hand painted 8 inch resin Tuttz figure (sculpted by Eric of Argonaut Resins). Renegade will be available for purchase on Wednesday, September 4th at 1pm EST at! (Check the timezone converter for your correct timezone.)

Renegade is a little bit different than the other customs I’ve painted because his lettering reads vertically; up his back, over his head and down the front of his body. The lettering along his base is only half legible, therefore living up to his name as a renegade amongst my typical creations. I incorporated blade-like shapes into his design, and chevrons (a military insignia), and contrasted that imagery with a full heart and the colours of love: pink & red. These colours are divided down his body, and if you look closely you can see that even his eyes are two different colours too! The heart over his throat suggests that although he is a rebel, everything he does is fueled by love. In fact he is soaked & dripping in it.

Renegade is an outlaw, living life as an enigma apart from societal expectations. Decked out in sharp blades he appears to be something feared, but he actually isn’t… he simply follows his own path. He has encountered a few fights along the way, but he never forgets that love is the inspiration which continues to drive him.

Urban Vinyl: Horizon 8″ resin Tuttz custom

Presenting… HORIZON…! He’s my newest hand painted 8 inch resin Tuttz figure (sculpted by Eric of Argonaut Resins). Horizon will be available for purchase on Tuesday, July 30th at 1pm EST at! (Check the timezone converter for your correct timezone.)

The word ‘horizon’ is painted in a 3-toned stylized blackletter script around his neck. The direction of his tribal patterns and arrows are intended to convey motion. The dripping pink blood represents the shedding of the last remnants from his past.

Horizon is ready to face whatever destiny has in store for him. He looks towards the horizon with the past behind him, and the future waiting to be discovered. Bearing wounds and scars, he bandages them up, dusts himself off, and walks forward towards the unknown…

*ALSO INCLUDED is the original page from my sketchbook with the word ‘Horizon’ that I drew to plan the lettering style!*

Urban Vinyl: ‘Without You’ custom resin 8″ Tuttz

Without You is my new Tuttz custom. He’s 8 inches tall and hand painted with acrylic. (If you missed it, there’s an in progress pic of him here.) He’s the first Tuttz custom I decided to keep because he’s very personal to me… he was inspired by recent losses in my life. The broken, bleeding heart is pretty self-explanatory, and the shards of diamonds are to give the effect that he’s shattering. I went through a huge emotional process creating & completing him.

Life Without You rips me apart to my core. I am forced to continue my journey through life without your warm body by my side. My body and mind fight against that idea every second of every day. I am forced to reevaluate who I am. But who am I without you… when you are on my mind, in the blood of my veins and in the depth of my soul. Life will be different, but it will never be the same without you…
