Mixer Monster

Hope everyone had a great Christmas. Before the holidays, I was given an unimaginable project to do...
I had an overwhelming and challenging task, assigned by DJ Qbert, to transform his perfectly good, award winning, historical dj mixer into a Jay222 project.
It was hard to believe that DJ Qbert would allow me to "mess up" such a good thing; I am happy with the results and am thankful for the opportunity.
My sister easily got over the blood and exposed muscle tissues, but she just couldn't get past the fungus toenails.

Here: the legendary mixer before I had my way with it.
I'd like to thank DJ Qbert again for allowing me to work on such a project.

Next up, a special project for Zach Galifianakis (well known from his character in The Hangover).

A Buff Sighting

Over the weekend, we went back into the city for some holiday shopping. For toys...
An aura radiates from Giant Robot, can you see it?
Wall to wall of toys and art. Christmas arrived early!
Never ending boxes of delight.

Who's this man in my view?!
It's Dragatomi's Joanne and Ray.
Special guest of the night: Buff Monster at Giant Robot for a book signing.

The man among the fans.
Joanne of Dragatomi brought a bizillion things for him to sign. Way to make him work for it.
Her infamous "W". Buff looked confused.
Super cool guy; it was a pleasure to see him again since DCon!

Kaiju in SF

Despite the pouring rain tonight, we ventured out to San Francisco, for Ron English's show at Medicine Agency and a Kaiju show at Double Punch, curated by none other than Mark Nagata. Rain, shmain.

Aaahhh... it's Godzilla himself! Or selfs...?
Four Kaiju giants united at Double Punch: SUNGUTS, Dream Rocket, Dead Presidents and Max Toys Co.

Matt of Dead Presidents and Ichimiya of SUNGUTS
The man approves: Mark Nagata
SUNGUTS signing his piece for me... :)
So much good stuff... drooooooollllll.....

Mark's giant toy on display. No cameras in the world can capture the magnificent paint job. I tried.
Awesome night packed with meeting the faces behind amazing talent and art. Ron English was super cool and great pleasure, per usual, from Double Punch and all its art and toys offered.

No More Heels

For the Qee 2 Life show, artists are invited to submit their work using the 8" Qee Bear as the medium.
Ian of Genuine Artikle was kind enough to have invited me to be a part of the show. Here is my submission to the show.
I did what I do best; cutting and chopping apart the perfectly good Qee Bear. And here is the result.

I wanted to title this piece, Can't Where Heels No More, being that the feet are hideously ginormous.

Off to New York this piece went. Again, the show's reception night is on December 12th. Don't miss it if you're in the area!
