Thundercats was one of my favorite cartoons growing up. Here's my rendition of the show's famous lead character, Lion-O, consisting of a 13" PAW custom + 14" scratch-built Sword of Omens. I started this further back than I care to remember and I'm grateful to the commissioner for being so patient. I added additional musculature and joints plus the belt, arm and shoulder armor. My favorite part is the Claw Shield which lifted the figure an inch higher than the original height.And the other side:

Here are my works for the second Five Eyed Dragon Show. This show commemorates Dragatomi's 5th year anniversary! It's great to be back together with these four amazing artists and I can't think of a gallery that's been better to me. Thanks to Joanne and Ray Suavillo, Betso, Nolasco, Drilone and Leecifer!

This classic Iron Man is based off the Billy character from Blamo Toys. The Billy has a rather soporofic energy about it. I wanted to see what would happen by going the other direction and turning Billy into an action figure. The original Billy figure is carved from wood. This sculpt is made using Smooth-On's Free Form Epoxy Putty and Magic Sculpt and carved to mimic a wood effect. Here's a pic with the original.

Dang, this took a long time! Almost a full year. I have wanted to make a Voltron for the past five years; he's my favorite super robot. For this project, I molded and cast all the major parts, over a dozen different molds (each arm and foot, horns, wings, nose, teeth, sword, and so on). It's been a great learning experience.

For the Art Without Borders Charity Show at Art Whino. This show will benefit Doctors without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières). It's an excellent organization " work[ing] in nearly 70 countries providing medical aid to those most in need regardless of their race, religion, or political affiliation." I was very pleased to be invited and wanted to make something that very directly related to their organization's work.

Samurai! 5" Minimunny head on a munnyworld Bub figure-the one that sorta looks like a hippo. It's got the best proportioned arms of all of them. I added legs too so this figure is now an inch taller than the original 4" figure.
