My friend Charlotte(also known as RED) finally opened her own hair salon called "Shear Shakti" downtown. I was asked to provide some of my digital paintings and custom hand painted hanging scrolls for her grand opening last month.These are a few of the pics and pieces.
This model is supposed to be on Ben the illustrator's 7th series in his Speakerdog collection. Not sure when the 7th series begins but I have been waiting to send this custom out until the release of this series. This was actually the very first custom paper craft I ever did!
Shin Tanaka's "Hoophy" gets a GRAVE makeover. From Tanaka's ongoing Hoophy template. This guy was created from my love of Celtic knotwork (and my own Irish heritage). The Brass knuckle bot is an idea I have had for a vinyl toy scuplture for years,but regrettably never had a chance to see through to completion.
A custom I completed last year of Tanaka sama's Griity template. Jiang shi are also called "hopping ghosts" or "chinese vampires". This custom came from my love of old kung fu flicks like Mr. vampire" and Sammo Hung's "Close encounters of the spooky kind".
