Gallery Shows - December

We will be in a few gallery shows, pop-up shops and traveling to three different cities during the month of December. Here are two highlighted gallery shows with openings this week:

Luv-able + Hug-able
December 3, 2009 - January 9, 2010

Gallery Hanahou
611 Broadway, Suite 730 NYC 10012

Opening Reception Dec. 3 from 6-9pm

There will be work from over 50 plush artists at this show - you don't want to miss it! Plus, they're all "medium & mini" size, so they'll be extra cute. Gubicza and I created a series of plush robots specifically for the show. Here are Brian's design ideas, and the finished 3D toys that I made:

Another gallery show is in Salem, MA and is featuring artists' interpretations of Krampus for the month of December.

Here's a sneak peek at the first two robot plush for Gallery Hanahou's (NYC) upcoming Luv-able & Hug-able Plush show. There will be five robot designs in total, but I wanted to share the first two as soon as they were ready.

South End Open Market - Halloween Style!

Yesterday, Gubicza and I traveled up to Boston to participate in the annual "Market of the Living Dead" - the last outdoor SOWA Open Market of the season. I've been having so much fun playing the LEGO Batman video game this summer, that I couldn't wait to make my own LEGO Batman costume. I was even fortunate enough to win first prize at this year's vendor costume contest! There was some stiff competition this year in the form of gorillas, Col. Sanders, The Corpse Bride, and zombies of all shapes and sizes with gruesome handmade makeup effects. There was even a customer costume contest this year, and the winner made an amazing "construction worker impaled by a traffic cone" costume. Here's a few pictures of my costume, but check out the entire Market flickr set to see more:

Tiger!

We just recently finished a custom tiger design for a long time customer.

I love the way the nose turned out, and I think I may use something similar for our upcoming fox design.
