I Know You Art, But What Am I? @ Gallery 1988

I'm very excited to have a piece in "I Know You Art, But What Am I?" Pee-Wee Herman tribute art show at Gallery 1988 in Venice, CA! Opening reception is Friday July 29th. I'm a big fan of Pee-Wee so I'm super stoked this is my first piece for a Gallery 1988 show! Below are some pics of my piece titled "Andy?!" in and out of the box/frame, based on a scene from the movie Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, one of my all time faves. I really enjoy making these large scale pieces (this one is about 2 feet tall) for art shows and got plans to do more! They are made of chipboard, cardstock and spray-paint and then put in a wood box/frame.

Free Paper Toy of the Month: Paper Chuck (non-SDCC exclusive)

So we were looking at all the cool San Diego Comic Con exclusive toys and being trapped in the middle of Kansas felt a little left out. So me and Brian Fyffe decided to make a papertoy available to all you poor folks, like us, who didn't get to SDCC this year it's the SDCC Non-Exclusive Paper Chuck! It's my paper-take on Brian's awesome Zombie Chuck character. Download and enjoy and be sure to check out Zombie Chuck books and toys!
Download Paper Chuck here.
I got a little off track there on the paper toy a month thing but I 'm back on track now, see you next month!

Banjo Gundam

Here is a paper automata I created to show at the Makers Faire. Turn the Crank and he plays banjo while taping his foot! See the video below for him in action. I'm thinking he would be a fun pre-cut kit. Maybe I should start a Kick Starter to fund production. He needs to be printed front to back which makes it not very feasible as a download plus lots of complex parts to cut.
