A Few New Robots

I had a chance this weekend to work on a couple of new robot designs including a few customs. This will probably be the last new batch of robots for a little while. I currently need to make 80-120 robots for an event as well as two sets of custom robot wedding cake toppers, as well as a few other custom orders. Enjoy!

Finally Some Booth Pics!

I have forgotten to take pictures at almost all my recent shows(I received a few emails recently reminding me of this!)I finally remembered this time! Sorry no pics of me in my booth ): But you don't want to see me anyways lol! The following pics are from the "Art Is Alive" in North Canton, Ohio this past Weekend. Friday was a looooooong day. I got up at 6am to finish up last minute items and parts of my display. The show didn't start until 5 but I had to be set up by 3. I got to there at around 1 and was done setting up by 4:15 (I would have been faster but I had a mishap with my table, I really need to get a new one!) I had a lot more space than I was intending (as I had a corner spot) I should have brought a 2nd smaller table so I could have spread my items out more, but it all still worked out ok. The show didn't end until 11pm. There were a lot of big crowds so by 11 I was exhausted! I finished covering up my table and left around 11:30. I got home about 12:15, but it wasn't bed time yet! I still had 3 custom orders people had placed during the show to complete that they were pick up the next day during the 2nd part of the show. I finally went to bed around 2:45 in the morning, but it wasn't the best sleep due to butters snoring all night. I got up around 6:00am the next day to finish painting and glazing my custom orders (I usually don't do much painting, but someone requested a robot wearing a Lebron James jersey. I had to paint on the name as well as the numbers. I left for the show at around 9:45. The show didn't start until 11 this day but I wanted to be a little early so I could re-set up what I had to take down to cover up my table and to get coffee. Oh sweet, sweet coffee! All in all it was a great show and there were some amazing artists there. I can't wait until next year!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

So I have craft shows lined up 3 weekends in a row, I'm releasing my new "Mr. & Mrs. Zombie Toast" set this week and I've got tons of customs to finish! At this point I wish I had an extra set of hands and on top of all this I have a killer tooth ache! I can't complain too much, I love doing shows! I really like meeting other crafters and seeing the look on peoples faces when they see my figures for the first time. Last week was the Cirque Imaginaire show. Great turn out for their 1st show, but we were literally packed in there like sardines! I actually had to crawl under the table to get into my booth because the tables were set up end to end. I think the planning could have been a little better in regards to set up. This weekend I have the Cleveland Craft Correlation show. This is a fun show. it is monthly and all the other vendors are awesome! Next weekend I have the 2 day "Art is Alive" show. I am really looking forward to this show. I'm also hoping to unveil a new display set up. I will try to remember to take pictures of my booth. I have forgotten the last few shows.

Aside from shows i have been working on a lot of new figures, mostly robots, but I hope to get a few new monsters done this week too. Also I just ordered a few Munnys this week to customize. I should have photos of those up later in the week as well. Below you can find pics of my latest figures. Enjoy!
