Urban Vinyl: Tuttz customs, Vici is unveiled!

The 3rd and last of my Tuttz customs is finally finished! I’ve named him “Vici” after the famous phrase by Julius Caesar: “Veni, Vidi, Vici.” (“I came, I saw, I conquered.”). Vici will be for sale in my Etsy shop this Thursday at 12:00 noon PST, and will be priced at $150. He is completely hand painted by me with acrylic paints and sealed. He was sculpted and cast by END of Argonaut Resins. He measures 6.5 inches high, he’s one-of-a-kind and signed on the bottom. You can see my other two Tuttz customs here: Veni and Vidi.

Vici’s Story (“I conquered”)
Vici has come a long way to be where he is now. He’s been through very difficult times but he’s survived. The bloody heart he bares on his shield shows others of his past… he’s faced his demons and come out on top. This heart has strength. “You’ve got to find the strength inside to lead you out of here. One steps guides another till the way becomes clear.” ~Down On Love by Sarah Blasko

Art Show: Seven @ Ayden Gallery

Ayden Gallery is hosting a show called ‘Seven’ next month, in celebration of their 7th anniversary! Over 50 artists will add their personal touch to TOMS shoes. TOMS is a very noble shoe company: “With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.” Some of the big names in the show are: Ben Tour, Camilla d’Errico, Lani Imre, Kristian Adam, Mandy Tsung, Peter Ricq, Peter Taylor and Peeta. The shoes will be on display and up for auction through the month of February. All proceeds go to charity. More info in this article.

Ayden has asked me to participate in the show! Here are a few shots of my TOMS shoes. I chose to work with my size; Women’s size 7. You can see I’m adding the base colour in the top right-hand pic. More sneak peeks coming soon… 😀

In Progress: 3rd Tuttz Custom Vici

Here’s a sneak peek at my 3rd Tuttz custom; Vici. I’m so happy that he’s… FINISHED! I promise pics this weekend. 😀 I had to put him on hold for a while because I fractured my hand and was unable to use it for a few months. But now I can draw and use a paint brush, so it’s about time I got him done! This pic was taken while I was painting the lettering on his toes. He will be for sale soon. Stay tuned…

Check out my 2nd Tuttz custom Vidi and my 1st Tuttz custom Veni. Both are sculpted by Argonaut Resins.
