The Revenant bust I produced for Dave Flora's Tales of the Revenant/Ghost Zero has been reviewed in this month's Amazing Figure Modeller #40. Dave was kind enough to put this little promo together and send it to me since I can't seem to find the AFM mag on sale near me. See more of Dave's awesome Ghost Zero goodness here:
The unpainted grey resin garage kit version of this bust is still available ($65 plus S&H) and we'll be offering a limited run of fully painted verions (below) of the bust with the release of Dave new printed comic book series.

Color pics up next! I brought in the talented paintmaster Andrew Scribner (painted the Crush toy prototype too) to sling the paint on this bad boy.

Buzz Carney got third place for sculpting in their 2006 Toy Awards:
Just want to say congrats to Jared Deal and Garnet Syberg Olsen (two awesome artists and designers - you guys are on a roll!!!). Thanks also goes out to Plasticandplush for including the Carney toys in their awards and to Erick Scarecrow for overseas project management. That's all you get because my writers are on strike too...no red carpet coverage either...sorry.

Plastic&Plush's Designer Toy Fix Episode 3 features a chat with Erick Scarecrow of ESC-Toy (with an update on the Still Depressed sculpt...) Thanks for the props E!!! The Still Depressed sculpt was quite a challenging project for me to say the least (when you see it in the flesh you'll see why). I had a great time working with Scarecrow on this project - the kid is a wicked designer with some cool stuff lined up for this year.
Picture borrowage from ToysRevil's blog (best blog on the planet right now):
Got the damn links working right finally.....

I use several painters for all my projects. Every now and then I'll send an older piece out and see what the painters can come up with. Warming up some stuff for 2008...it's going to be a interesting year and I hope I can get most of what's planned off the ground....
