BLOG ENTRY Oct. 21st. 2014 Im feeling inspired to draw this week.
-Some weeks I wont draw at all, which when I think about it seems odd, Im clearly the kind of person who can see things and in a second can jot it down or get an idea on paper. A lot of times when the TV is off, or its late night and Im thinking, Ill get ideas or visions, and this can kick start a creative process in the lab…. but some weeks can go by where I dont drawn anything at all, it’s weird and I can’t explain it…. In any event this week in NY its getting to be colder out and darker earlier, and this is the time of year where I always switch gears and start to get settled into my paintings in the studio time… This goes thru the winter till I usually go to Miami around Dec. or maybe Puerto Rico around the first month of the new year… but for the most part I generally become the all nighter kind of studio painter where I stay up for days and days ,catching short naps here and there. Weeks become a fuzzy blur at times, I think Ive become used to this kind of lifestyle over the years and still find it hard to explain to normal people who would look at me like somethin’s gotta be wrong. In all honesty, it’s something I love and look forward to, straight zoning out for days and days, falling asleep and waking up to the glance at a new painting(s) I just spent 60 straight hours on is an amazing experience. The point Im getting at is I can feel this energy building up inside me this week that I think will launch me into this indoor season over here soon. Ive been drawing and painting a lot this week, much more than regularly do, my brain just wont shut off and I have this urge to get it on paper or lose it forever….. I wont post a lot of it but I figured Id share some. I love scribbling, so here’s some sketches and some things Ive been messing with this week. Again, some other conceptual stuff I wont share but some fun stuff below….
The last couple pics I thru in are just some randoms to share. This isn’t your regular entry I guess. More things coming next week, hang tight and my next post will have some big updates to share.

The show is called Part of the Toy Tokyo: From the Archives Auction and it’s a display of items from Lev’s ( Toy Tokyo) private collection. I’ve known Lev for a long time, and he has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to investing in the right things/people, he just sees around the corner I like to say. This auction is all his creation and I’m happy to be able to say there’s a few of my pieces in there that have a chance to find a new collection. There is a lot of other incredible pieces in this auction as well. Have a look, and register is you see something you like, PADDLE8 is a very reputable Auction House that has been doing a lot of great things, show them your support.
Above is the master copy Bronze staue created from my Horselington Figure by Jeff Decker of Hippodrome Studios. We initially had plans to do about 5 of these but I changed gears and moved away from The Horselington character so this remains the single and only Bronze ever made. If you know anything about Bronze work, you know the history and legacy of Jeff Decker, if not use your Google skills. I was honored when he was so excited to do this. It’s unfortunate we never made more.
BLOG ENTRY. NYCC Recap Oct. 12. 2014
Some recap images, too much to type, try to get an idea from some images. Thank you ALL who came out to the Con, patiently hung out on the line and supported by scooping up the PURPLE Grand Finally ( #GRANDFINALINGTON ) version of the Brainlington Saga. This year has been amazing and a great introduction getting back into the Vinyl scene again.
It was a great last 3 days.
