Be sure to pop into dragatomi on Saturday if you’re in the area. There will be plenty of goodies for everyone

dead bear update

image797251187.jpgAmidst tying up loose ends with toy commissions, I’m slowly developing the deadbear brand. I’ve more or less got the mascot settled, as well as the logo. I might make a Teddy bear version that could become a plush at some point.

Work has already begun on the second figure, and I have three more mapped out. The plan is to have at least six sculpts ready by the time my April show at super7 rolls around.

Mold making begins next week, and I’ll be sure I document it well. Stay tuned

the dead bear

so it’s a new year and i’m making some changes. i’m going to be moving away from custom toys and start making my own figures. after 4 and a half years of making toys for other people i’m going to be making things that i want to make.  the figures will all be around 5 inches tall and cast in resin. i plan on doing all the sculpting, molding and casting myself.

each figure will be released in small runs of 10, and the plan is to release at least one original sculpt each month. older sculpts will be released again in alternate colorways. i haven’t decided on how many runs of each sculpt will be produced, i’ll just kind of play it by ear.

all the toys will be realeased under my new production company THE DEAD BEAR. a website/production blog thing will appear shortly to track all the new figures. if all goes well i want to produce small figures for other artists. there are a lot of good artists being ignored by the big companies, and they should have a way to get their own figures produced.

now on to the first release, the treature. this is the prototype for it, which still needs a bit of cleaup. casting should begin next week. a few websites have expressed interest in exclusive colorways, and i have a solo show in april that will showcase nothing but dead bear figures. it should be a lot of  fun. i’ll post updates when i have them
