Thank you to everyone for supporting my art. I love and appreciate you all. The response to Aleister has been so awesome and truly enables me not only to support my family, but support my ability to continue to create things that hopefully continue to make people stoked. Namaste.

Stoked to get to reveal this fun collaboration for DesignerCon 2019! It's so awesome in many ways to get to collaborate with Splurrt for this project. First of all, this mash -up came about by a good friend (and fan of both figures) who put this mash up together with figures they owned & then let us know it should be a thing! Super cool how well they work together & we obviously agreed! I've been a fan of Joe's sculpts and painting for a while. I enjoy his overall aesthetic from toy to packaging, I can appreciate anyone who sculpts their own stuff (it's so not easy!) and his paint apps not only have a classic kaiju monster vibe, but he incorporates the base color of his figures excellently and this is something I struggled with for a while when I made the move from canvas to vinyl. Much gratitude to Joe/Splurrt for this collab, I'm really stoked on how it came out.
Rot Smiler is composed of my Aleister Head on Splurrt's Cadaver Kid body. Joe suggested smoke grey vinyl for this bad boy, and as you can see from the backlit photo below, it was a great choice! I did the airbrushing on this one as Joe gets ready for his first child's arrival soon (congrats!) Red sprays, gold hand painted details, all over blood splatter & sold blind as there are three different eyeball paints possible: dot, serpent & spiral! (see photo above). Rot Smiler will be available exclusively at Designer Con 2019 at the Lulubell Toys booth #1345! $75usd each, available at doors opening until sold out, MAX 1 per person! Stoked to see everyone at Dcon in a few weeks. Be sure to stop by & introduce yourself, I'll be hanging out with the awesome Lulubell Crew all weekend at booth 1345 with hugs and high fives.

I'm proud to reveal my next sofubi creation, The GOD, which will be my first full sized sofubi figure!
The GOD is an advanced being, constructed out of archetypes and knowledge from a long forgotten ancient civilization.
The GOD is the last remaining creature from a distant dimension, and in order to survive, he is challenged with repopulating a new civilization before all of the knowledge of the prior civilization is lost. The GOD has been keeping the knowledge, history and DNA from this lost civilization safe inside his staff, which he rattles to shake loose and create new creatures to improve upon and continue the evolution of his species.
The GOD examines archetypes and societal challenges. On the positive side, the GOD can be compassionate, conscious and willing to help others out of his overall love for his fellow beings. The shadow side of the GOD however can easily become a dictator or despot, oppressing others and using his power in a self serving manner.
Four faces reveal a different aspect of the GOD: The Charmer, The Trickster, the Miser & the Sage. Each release will focus on a certain architype, based on which face is forward. The GOD stands approximately 8"/20cm tall and is articulated in the neck, shoulders and legs, and will include a skull headed staff (not pictured).
The GOD will make his debut in early 2020! Support the start up costs of this project by pre-ordering the GOD now! I am now taking orders for the GOD in UNPAINTED RED VINYL, just like I did for Aleister! Introductory pre-order price is $85usd, and this is the only time I will be selling these at this price, or in solid colors (for at least a while!)
