We're heading to LA to join the fun at Kaiju Con this year in Los Angeles in June & I bred a new version of my beast to bring along!! This Kaiju Con exclusive Aleister features a bright orange base vinyl with red & yellow candy fades over bone & a black rub! Includes metal gold chain & bell charm to keep dastardly doggy at bay. $50usd at Kaiju Con, sold at opening! (any unsold will go up for sale via lulubelltoys.com on Sunday, June 16th, time TBA).
New Holographic Ghost Aleister will be available via lulubelltoys.com on June 1st at 9am Pacific Time, 6 are rumored to be going to 5 Points Fest (follow my Devil's Kaiju's IG feed for more info). The Holographic Ghost Aleister is cast in super clear vinyl, then inside painted with color changing Holographic paint (changes color with movement in bright light!). I then added hand painted detailing, bell charm and leash, so your other sofubi can keep track of him! $50 usd each + shipping, 6 drop online via lulubelltoys.com Saturday, June 1st at 9am Pacific Time.
Order & Chaos is the debut micro run release of Aleister in sofubi toy & it was so fun and unreal to have this dude in hand! Cast in blue & orange marbled vinyl with hand painted details and metal charm, this run is limited to 20 pieces! Find Aleister online on 5.1.2019 exclusively via lulubelltoys.com!
I'm stoked to announce that my little demon doggy will be coming to life in sofubi this year, thanks in huge part to Luke & Yuki (Lulubell Japan)! I sculpted this guy just as one of many practice runs making a thing while I was teaching myself how to sculpt (which is a funny story in itself that I'll have to share another time!) I have a sizable collection of sculpts now, but like most artists breaking into sofubi, I've been hesitant to choose one and make the leap! As fate would have it, Aleister has become the chosen one for my first sofubi, and I'm really grateful at the overwhelming support, comments and love I've received! To help fund this project's start up costs, I'm doing a open run pre-order for unpainted red vinyl (mock up above, color may differ slightly) at an amazing "thank you for helping me fund this price" of just $25 each! No order maximums, made to order. Available exclusively via lulubelltoys.com now through February 14th, 2019!
Making his debut at 5 Points this year is Aleister Growly. Aleister is the first in an upcoming cast of characters called Infected by Devils, inspired by the various ancient wisdom holders and seekers of the past. Hand sculpted, mold and resin cast and painted all by me, Aleister features inner magnets in the neck for articulated fun! Approx. 4" tall, two part resin. Leash one up at 5 Points Festval in NYC at the Lulubell Toys booth, #331! $40usd.

I kept this cat in the bag until the install was complete, but I am so honored to have been selected at the Valley Metro ARTSLINE featured artist for 2018!!! This GIGANTIC mural is located at the Roosevelt & Central Avenue station in Phoenix and will be up for a year until it rotates to the next installment. It's been fun seeing people posting pictures on IG already! The official kickoff is during ART DETOUR PHX this year, and you can also see two more pieces inside the Light Rail cars this year, so be sure to look up when you ride! This was a huge undertaking, and consisted of many, many layers, and I am so happy with the end result! Most of the murals I've done recently are commissions with a real specific goal in mind, and for this project I was given the ultimate in creative freedom, so I really had fun trying out a bunch of different layers and elements to get to the finished design. I had a great time going all out and cramming a ton of fun elements into this one, and tried to honor both my roots in aerosol painting and my more recent canvas style. I really enjoy getting the overall composition realistic and then blowing out some of the elements in a loose or drippy way. Two of our family pets, Hanzo & Winston, joined the party, with Winston the pug entering a portal in one area and popping out in another! My wife was my photo reference for the yogi, and if you look close, you can find the Phoenix Lights & a few other fun hidden elements. Go check it out next time you ride the train & let me know what you find!
Got my hands on a blank Mutant Cop & Dk-9 set last year and it's been staring at me ever since. I absolutely LOVE this sculpt, and I always have a blast painting anything Violence Toy makes! Up for grabs currently at lulubelltoys.com here.
Painted a few more of the baby Bella figure by Grody Shogun this week, in a cute baby Bride of Frankenstein version! Up for grabs now at Lulubell Toys. As always, gratitude to Robert Howell for always capturing my customs in photos so well! <3 UPDATE: SOLD OUT! Thank you to everyone who picked one up!
I can't tell you how much of an honor it is to get to paint a run of James Groman's Rotten Rexx for Lulubell Toys. When the figure was making it's initial debut, a blank head was released first, and a paint contest was held. The winner was to be picked by James himself on Instagram, and would get to paint a run based on their winning entry! I didn't even think I'd be considered, but I wanted to paint one anyway because it's just such an awesome figure. James is one of my artist-legend-heroes and to have had the extreme pleasure of meeting him a few times now, this release is special to me to say the least. It's always rad when you meet a hero and they not only meet, but exceed your expectations. That is James. So extremely talented in so many mediums, a true professional, and one of the most modest, down to earth artist's I've ever met. Super humble and hardworking dude. I could go on and on about Rexx and James Groman, but I'll stop short by saying I am truly grateful and honored to paint this run, and look forward to seeing where they end up! (sales details below)

Here's a fun custom Cure Toys Brain Bug Boogie Man I did this week that is off to CA! Super amazing figure to paint...I love the detail in the James Groman head and mask, and it lends itself really well to this homage. This was painted on flesh vinyl blank (maybe first release?) from a couple years back. Thank you to the amazingly talented Robert Howell (@xduchessgummybunsx on Instagram) for always taking such amazing photographs!
