A Fisherman and a Fish

Here comes a terror from the deep....

 The jaw is moveable, and the antenna is planned to be separate, with a female glyos joint for swappable parts.

Turns out deep sea angler fish are already monsters.  You don't even have to exaggerate anything!

The Secret Story of Toys!

Hey guys there is a video that you may or may not have seen out there called 'The Secret Story of Toys'. It's made by Tony Ladesich (rhymes with 'radish'), a guy I met pretty recently who makes really professional quality independent films here in the Kansas City area. The documentary style short feels very personal to me, because the other sculptor is Adrienne, my wife, and the mold maker is Adam, her brother. So every one in the video is family, really.

As is typical, I feel weird about how I look and sound in this, but I think Adrienne is cute and sincere, and Adam is funny.  

Tony also made a short film called Icarus one, and my brother and I made the main prop/set for it.  I'll try to get a link to that and perhaps make a new post about it.

I also have a new Armorvor head coming up soon for you collectors out there, which will go well with the rhino head.

By the way, I've heard the image of our potential daughter (basically a picture of Adrian's pregnant belly) is a broken image. Are you guys able to see that? Let me know in the comments section!

Lots of updates!!! I am going to be a dad, and more news

Hey folks, there's been a lot going on in my life, and being as disorganized as I am, that resulted in a whole lot of not posting blogs. I got some software so I can dictate and it can record me, which should get me blogging more often.  Honestly, blogging has felt a lot like English assignments to me in the past, so the more I can do to make it enjoyable and easy the better!

I should have enough "material" to have several blogs in a row here, but I'm going to start with the most important one: I'm married, and soon I will be a father!

photographic visual indisputable proof

Adrienne and I have been together for five years, so there really hasn't been too much of a change in lifestyle, we just made it official. Adrienne is a great, lovely, patient person (she has to be to put up with me!) and I know she's going to be a great mother. She's also a great artist, and does the same work I do, making realistic toys for companies like NECA

I'll be back with more news about some local Kansas City movie projects I've worked on, a bigger movie I may help design concept creatures for, sculptures for NECA, independent and Glyos related toys,.etc. etc. etc.

See ya!

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth...

Hey guys, sorry I have been so absent from the blog.  I had a pretty stressful run there and I am planning on doing some new stuff which I will write about within the week, hopefully.   I intend to get back into doing more Glyos compatible work, armorvor heads, etc. pretty soon.
