i don't normally do 3-dimensional pieces that are not self-directed, but recently i had two great opportunities to do otherwise.
a while back i had been approached to paint a skate deck as part of a fund-raising group show in atlanta. there are a lot of great artists involved, including faile, tim biskup, amy sol and sage vaughn, among others. details on that can be found here. this is my contribution:
i was also approached by dylan from subtext to do a custom toy show in conjunction with the san diego comic con. i typically don't do toys, but this one was so adorable and actually made me chuckle the first time i saw it- i couldn't say no. this is my YOKA for the beasts of burden show:
the design on the YOKA panda isn't something you'd normally expect form me, but it's so easy to get kitschy with toys that i thought it'd be better to approach it with more of a design mentality.
both were a lot of fun to do, despite its challenges.
