My First Custom!

Yep that is correct. These are images of my first custom toy. I have never sculpted before so I must say it has been very exciting and new for me. I used a DIY Celsius as my platform. I'm looking to enter the custom Celsius Contest. Here is my work in progress. Any feedback is appreciated. Ill post more progress pics soon.
This piece is titled Chupy!

Meeting With Disney

Last week July 14th I flew out to California to meet with the Consumer Products Division at Disney.
The Stationery department to be exact. The company I work for holds the stationery licence with Disney. I was making a presentation on new items and dirctions we at Horizon want to go in. I cant say to much because of course its all TOP SECRET stuff. Lets just say it went very well.

The Consumer Products offices are located a few miles away from the DISNEY Head quarters. I've had the pleasure of visiting both offices on business trips.
Security is tight and in a very Disney style the hallways are filled with Disney art created by Disney artist. Below are a few pics that I took of art on the walls and a small glimpse at their campus.
Security was Tight!
A Princess Dress Made of Bubble Wrap and Foil! This is located next to the receptionist desk.

Across fronm the Receptionist you have a large TRON wall of Art and Display. Unfortunately the TRON bike was out on tour:(

Disney Wall Art!
Cafeteria and folks Barbecuing outside. Now at Disney they know how what lunch time should be like!

More iPad sketches

I've been sketching on my iPad a lot lately. I love the freedom of having one device where I can sketch, draw and create full blown pieces. Check out a few on my new designs.

You can vote to see these designs made into a toy @ Patchtogether
I'm looking for the right design to put out as my first vinyl.
Soon I will start to post images of the first custom toy I'm working on. I'm using a blank Celsius as my platform. I'm looking tom submit it to the contest they are having.
