The Munny Grubber Custom Show

Hi guys. So today I wanted to post a custom Munny I did for a upcoming show in Arizona. I was invited to be a part of a custom show, which is a great honor. I usually sculpted stuff on these figures, but this time I just wanted to go with what I feel more comfortable with and actually inked on it. I'm very happy with the outcome and also the kind comments I have gotten from the Kid Robot forum. I hope you guys in Arizona can make it to check it out.

SDCC Rules!!!

So it's been a couple of days since I came back from SDCC and all I can say is....IT WAS FUN!!!!

This year was totally awesome because of many reasons. I got to meet all my old friends that I don't get to see much. I got to see all my friends from Japan this year like Chika, Mori san, Kiyoka san, Chanmen, Don, Hiddy and many more.

I also got to meet new people like artist Ayako, guys at Monkey King, Kurt from Laser Tag Cartel and many more.

I just want to thank everyone for the great time and I hope that next year will blow up even more. I'm planning on having my own booth next year so i hope many of you can make it next year.

So for todays post I thought I'd post something else than my art. I wanted to introduce all you guys to the most awesome band!!! Well to me their the best yet. The guitarist with the pink hair, named hide (hede) was one of the reasons why I started listening to them about 15 years ago. The band's name is X-Japan and I'm sure most of you have heard their song I.V. at the ending of one of the SAW movies and also on Rock Band. they have been around for a very long time and have made a come back.

Unfortunately, hide passed away a while back. Rumors are still around that it was suicide, but I feel like it was a accident, like many says. He is awesome to me and one of my total true hero's of my time.

Here is one of the songs I love titled "Kurenai". Also, I'm introducing you to the band cause their music is what I listen to most of the time when I draw.


Yoshiki -Drummer
Hide- Guitar
Pata- Guitar
Toshi- Vocal
Heath- Bass

So while I was going back and forth in my mind I just said to myself "Dude....fuck it. Just go!!!!" So my mind was made up and guess what. I'll be going there now!!!! I'll be there from Thursday till Friday afternoon. If any of you guys wanna meet, I'll be the one with the red hair, short and deffintly with a hat on. Now how hard is that to

New Art Work

Hello everyone and I hope all is doing well. For me I've been trying to keep myself busy and deffinetly tired. But I can't let go of my pen so here is another finished art I did. It is the one where I drew directly onto glass and sealed it with clear resin. This image will also be a image for my skatedecks, which I collaborate with the best dudes at Laser Tag Cartel.

Introducing NOBORYU!!!!

Today I will like to introduce everyone my very first figure, Noboryu!!! He was first sighted this past saturday at DDR Project Gallery in Long Beach. I am very happy and excited at the same time when the sculpt arrived. I've also just had a meeting wih Pretty in Plastic while I was down in LA this weekend, and it looks like he will soon be available this year if all goes well. He will also be making a appearance at this year SDCC at Mr. Frank Kozik's booth. Thanks Frank!!!!

The first release will be limited. All the figures will be hand painted by me. The release will most likely be Pre-Order style, so if you will like to be the first to know about it, e mail me to be on my mailing list and you will get all the scoops first. The price of the figure will range from $70 ~ $80, but this has not been decided yet.

So on with the full detail. I will like to introduce to you NOBORYU!!!

Noboryu figure specs, Information and Back Story:
Name: Noboryu
Height: About 8" tall
Articulation: The arms (This is being planned and worked on)
First Release Date: Hopefully by October or November of this year

No one knows how old Noboryu is, but he is believed to have been around since the very first human species were around. He lives in the clouds and watches over the people every day. Back when the first humans arrived, it was peaceful. So he stayed on top of the skies and enjoyed the peace.
That was until the current date. Today the world is filled with war, hate, murders, pollution and all the bad things you can think of. Noboryu started to realize this and knew that he had to do something in order to bring back the peace. So he finally came down to earth to bring happiness and luck to everyone in the world, hoping that all the chaos will end and that he can bring some happiness to all.

( The photo here is the actual sculpt. It was sculpted by the great Rommel Chua aka Hobby Master)

New inking surface!!!!

So today was a busy day for me. Getting alot of things ready for this weekends show and running around town. One of the tasks was to go get glass for my frames. Luckily I have a friend that his dad owns a glass shop. So I went by and he cut my glass for me. Then I asked if I can keep the scraps and he said sure. So I went home and suddenly I thought "What can I do with this scrap??....Dude!!! Draw on it!!!" So I got out my precious pen and ink and started testing the ink on glass. And man was I happy. It works!!! It dries fine and now I am in the process of working on a piece. Here is the photo of it that is parcially done. Got more to do, but I'll be having fun with this. Maybe I will do a series of these. We'll see.
