Sweet + Toxic were made for the Robots + Monsters group show at Ayden Gallery in Vancouver, BC. Opening Reception: Friday, October 22, 7-11pm. Exhibition runs until Nov 14, 2010
Sweet + Toxic follow their hearts with full force. Their intense love brings them both the most sweetest joy and the most toxic pain. Most of the time the candy coloured duo have a happy outlook on life with their strawberry pink palette and kawaii fabric details. Their favourite dessert is Strawberry Shortcake and they fight over who gets to eat most of the whipped cream.
I just wanted to say thanks to my Bro who helped me with the finishing details due to my injured hand. Thanks Jess! 🙂
If you’re in LA tonight, go check out the Ganmetall Celcius Custom Show @ Toy Art Gallery, 8-11pm. My custom Till Death will be on display + for sale, along with some amazing customs from over 60 other artists! If you can’t make it to the opening the show will be streamed live at www.aoptv.com.
This is my Celcius custom for the Ganmetall Celsius Show @ Toy Art Gallery in Los Angeles, opening on July 10th, 2010. The show is sponsored by Kuso Vinyl, Rotobox Vinyl and Spanky Stokes.
Inspired by love, Till Death is a dark angel who is like the Anti-Cupid. He swoops down when he is called upon to end beautiful unions. “All good things must come to an end”, said Chaucer in 1374, and those are the words Till Death lives by. But Till Death knows that regardless of what happens the heart speaks the truth, for: “Love is not written on paper, for paper can be erased. Nor is it etched on stone, for stone can be broken. But it is inscribed on a heart and there it shall remain forever.”
Here’s an in progress shot of my custom for the Ganmetall Celcius Custom Show held at TAG in LA this July. The base is Kuso Vinyl‘s DIY Celcius figure. I decided to paint the base coats first, then sketch what I wanted overtop of that. Can’t wait to finish this guy!

This weekend I got my plushies ready for the group show Animalopolis at Ayden Gallery. I’ll be showing 9 deer and 2 dolls. The opening is this Friday at 7pm, and the show lasts for a month. Come check out the show if you’re in Vancouver! You can even RSVP on Facebook.
Here are some pics to follow up my previous post about the Freaks + Geeks art show @ The Fall Tattooing in Vancouver. There are only a few more days left to check out this show! It’s located at 644 Seymour Street between Georgia + Dunsmuir.
There was a great eclectic mix of artwork from paintings to photographs to clothing and plush. My favourite piece was (unsurprisingly) a white rabbit hand-cut out of paper. The detail the artist put into creating this piece was unbelievable.
My deer were displayed in a glass case next to a gorgeous handmade Steampunk-esque outfit with corset + furry neck ruff.
I thought these pieces below were pretty dope.
Vanilla Deer sold to a lovely lady on opening night, leaving Strawberry + Licorice Deer standing together under a plush Tooth Fairy doll (with a bottle of real human teeth!). To the right is 3 small illustrations by tattoo artist/illustrator/curator Nomi Chi (www.nomi-chi.com) and just to the right of that is Megz Majewski‘s (www.deadkittie.com) siamese twins painting.
At the end of the night there was a performance by piercing suspensionist Russ Foxx. (Warning: This video is not for the squeamish!) http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150175680825416
