Super 7 - Ghost Land

Super 7 - Ghost Land, originally uploaded by jonlynw.

Uh oh, I got the HB hooked on vinyl toys! ;) We picked up the first few during our visit to Super 7 when in San Francisco over the holidays, and Jonlyn completed her set after our trip to Toy Qube this past weekend!

Steve T Moneygrip Rooftop-1

Steve T Moneygrip Rooftop-1, originally uploaded by sketchguy.

Ok, this is my first test using the 'blog photo from flickr' feature. Here's a shot of my entry for the Moneygrip show taken up on the roof at my place in Bklyn. I'm going to have to figure out if I can add multiple photos at once (I'm sure you can, I just haven't found that option yet!)

Moneygrip Custom Photos and Design Process

A few roof-top pictures of my final entry for the Moneygrip show. I was in a hurry to snap some pics in outdoor light before turning in my character. I've also posted several of my alternative design concepts that show my thought process for arriving at my final choice. Visit this flickr set for the full enchilada.

'Get a Grip' Custom Show Opening Night @ MyPlasticHeart

This past Friday, January 25th, saw the opening of KaNO's 'Get A Grip' Moneygrip Custom show at My Plastic Heart NYC. The turnout was great, with a jam-packed crowd braving the cold to view the 46 custom Moneygrip characters on display. In addition to finally meeting KaNO for the first time, I was introduced to Jester and his son Jace (in from Houston, TX), Kelly Denato, Keith Poon (owner of the excellent Toy Qube), Pon, and Kid Lew. My pictures from opening night and all the entries are now up on my Flickr page.
