Sh** was crazy and then there was the Museum

Between school, the last bit of toy commissions until June, packing up all my belongings and shipping them to AZ, couch surfing, collaborations and maintaining some sense of a social life I've somehow forgotten to update my blog. Who woulda thunk that being busy had consequences. I'm so terrible -_- Anyway, besides all that crazy business I managed to land a wonderful opportunity sculpting an 18 inch mega munny vinyl toy and doing demonstrations for the Oakland Museum of California and their "We Customize" exhibit. The whole demo aspect of the exhibit is already done and over with however the museum will have the toy up for display within the week, or so I'm told.  Here are some pics of the Shadow Beast!

 Hopefully these can give you a sense of scale :P

There are a few more photos of the event on the We Customize tumblr showing some of the creations of the people who stopped by and you can find even more Work in progress pics on my instagram. It was pretty exciting, over 260 people showed up the first night, so much energy and everybody was so kind and inquisitive! Off the Grid was there too, so many tasty foooooooods! Once the piece is up I'll get some more photos, but if you're in the Oakland/Lake Merrit area stop by and check it out! It's free to see the exhibit so NO EXCUSES :P

Also, if anyone is interested in one of these mega beasts they are available in my SHOP
If you have any questions about anything, and I mean ANYTHING, please don't hesitate to ask!
