Yeah I ordered that set to be in one piece with the plan to frame it. I'm excited to have the thing
Good evening internet. I recently acquired my jaguar warriors from Mexico and I am really extremely pleased with the whole process from beginning to the final shipment. Needless to say I have been quite busy house hunting, engagement ring making and general ridiculousness at work. With that said, I still have not sorted out packaging for these warriors, however I have begun painting customs. They're really fun to paint. Like....I can't stop. I think Satan has taken over my hands. I mean that happened awhile ago but he's definitely still there hanging out in my digits.
The little U.K. publisher who is putting out my book of monster portraits posted the first ad for it today.
All the background photos were taken on my trip to NY for 5 Points 2018. Was a nice way to relive the trip spending time back at each location.
Just put up a pre-order last night for these NATIVES keshi. Total labor of love and would really like to see this line continue. Pre-orders are available on my website, Yucktoyco.com, if you're interested.
A little late but a Mexican associate of mine put his own custom painted Jaguar Warrior vinyl toy in his Dia de los muertos altar. Pretty effing cool.
Wish these photos weren’t removed. I’d love to see what was posted. Artist here from New York I work in a variety of mediums, paint, sculpt, mixed media, installation and I write and dance

Some artwork from a comic book I've been working on for the past couple of months (last image is a homage to one of my favourite Iron Man covers)..
Are you using actual screen tones in that first drawing or digital? It's rare to see people still using it nowadays!
I remember when American Flagg! by Howard Chaykin came out in the 80s it had this neat new screentone like texture being used for shading but it seemed really complex for standard Zip-A-Tone. I later found out it was this new bristol board that had a non-photo blue pattern printed in the paper and you used a proprietary chemical with a brush to paint the paper to expose the texture, allowing you to build it up.
Kind of a mix - I have some tone patterns that I've scanned or saved flat 'sheets' of in Photoshop - then I'll overlay them and cut and scratch and erase until it looks right. Just about to start doing tones on the full story - this image is just one isolated panel from the comic
Yeah Clip Studio Paint has a lot of tone patterns as well haha. Neat!
This is a piece I did for a contest that the original toy artist did last year. The base toy is about 3 inches and resin.
This is old but I don't think I posted it before?
repetitive Clear Boys for header card.
painting up some mini chodes...err.....Fanatics.
Made this mini a year ago for a D&D campaign I play in. Finished painting him up this weekend.
^^ I thought Dr. Doom normally sports a pistol, not a blunderbuss. That thing must shoot some serious daemonic magicks.
Blunderbuss, psssh. This is a thunder cannon that shoots lighting ; )
My first fully packaged soft vinyl toy release. It feels good.
Finishing up this comic project - should be going to print in a couple of weeks!
Also been whipping up some little cuties for instagram when I can squeeze them in...
I kinda got a lot going on right now. Been doodling a bunch in my sketchbook lately too coming up with new ideas and reworking old ones.
EDIT: here's an updated sketch for that greaser cat design posted above.
Spent the night inking over some Mike Mignola..
^ I'll PM you my mailing address. Thanks in advance!
