Whoooooa! So almost a year ago I had the privilege to design a whole box of “Mickey Mouse Shorts” Vinylmation figures. We never heard word of these being made afterwards so I just assumed they were put on the shelf. Not too long ago, at the Imagination Gala conference they announced these! They’re a blind box set of 8 figures and will come out sometime in March 2015. I had no idea! These are my designs! I got to design toys! Mickey toys! I’m very excited about the news. I had so much fun with these and tried to make them look appealing while still being prominent to a certain episode. I did many episodes so I hope they make more. I wonder who the chaser will be…. Hehehe.

Here’s my contribution to the "Popeye 85th Anniversary Tribute Show". It’ll be held at Hero Complex Gallery on Friday, September 5th @ 7 pm. Mine is done in ink brush pen and markers with some pencils and gel pen. It’s called "Well, I’ll crown ya! WHAM!" It’s based on the short “Wild Elephinks” where Popeye goes on a rampage and fights every furry beast in his path. I went with the classic style and I’m glad I did. Stoked to be a part of this show. I didn’t want to miss it. I’ll have this piece and limited edition prints for sale at the gallery! Be sure to check it out!

I’ve been waiting years for this to come out! Jorge showed me models way back when and it’s incredible to see the final product! I wish I worked on it, the trailer is pure eye candy. Amazing job on the movie, guys! I can’t wait to see it. I’ll draw a proper tribute when I see it of course!
Happy 2014! I’m late as always considering we’re almost mid way through January. Last year was pretty rough for me. I’m certain this year will be a step in the right direction. I’m pretty hyped for all the new projects I want to venture into. Let this be the year of progression. Bring it on.~
