Jumped on the GREEN bandwagon

My first two work studios a few years back due to low/no budget, I used to cut up used cardboard boxes and turn them into storage units. I even "faced" cabinets with them as well! It was always fun to see what your creativity can come up with.

Around 3 months ago I moved into a new work studio and i just can't help myself! I had to let myself do just one more piece of cardboard furniture to remind me of the good ol' days.

Gundam X Mini Munny

A current commission piece that's almost complete! Will post final completed pics in a few days. Still working on the decals. Will post some progress shots along with the final pics when 100% complete.

Pple often ask what my thought process is when creating customs. I don't have any one specific process I go through every time. I rarely (if ever) do any sketches prior to building. Customs are fun to do so I find it best to just free-build it. Whenever I have to create a custom of an existing design (Gundam in this case), I try not to go too literal. The Munny platform is cool but simple. So I try to keep it consistent. I look for key details on the original design and incorporate those into my piece. Imho, trying to fit too much detail into this particular platform will ruin the overall look.

That's all for now! Back to work!

Lucky STRIKE "Red" edition

New commission piece with custom vintage "Lucky Strike" display box.

A few weeks ago I was at some random Antique shop in Long Beach and  ran across this vintage cigarette box. I adjust the dimensions and add a cutout window for display. I wish I could keep this set for myself but it's already spoken for....oh well.

New BloHG Testing!

Welcome to my new blohG! I'm trying to transition into a different blog. The last one I used was a pain to post which resulted in little to no posts/updates because it made me too lazy to deal with. Hopefully this one is better and will encourage more posts.
