    Hey All. Yep, I've just recently been introduced to the SB forum - by some of the guys over on the new Grass Hut Forum (who are now doubt here as well). I've been casting resin in Seattle for a couple years now - with a tendancy toward snack foods and such. Have a look:

    Hey Thanks JoeMan!

    Sbbenhcs - c2e2... I won't be making that unfortunately - but my buddy TGB will be there, and he's been making some amazing new resin stuff recently! In fact, he's casting a run of toys for me at this very moment - sort of a collaboration since I'm away for a while before Wondercon (...and he does amazing work with Crystal Clear stuff). He'll be at the Onell designs booth - go see him and tell him I sent you :D

    Actually,
    I will be @ the Nerd City booth #1026. I am bringing my KC crew w/ me (Adam Smith NECA's master mold maker/prototyper, Adrienne Smith NECA sculptor, Jason Frailey NECA sculptor, & Brian Fyffe Hallmark creator of Zombie Chuck).

    I will have lots of exclusives including collabs w/ Matt Doughty/Onell Design/Glyos, Ben Spencer/Nerd City/Galaxxor, Brian Fyffe/Zombie Chuck, Jason Frailey/ClawShine, Adrienne Smith/ (new cat sculpt...not sure what she calls them yet), my sons' MJ/Mammothman Monster & Kobe/Robo Gloop w/ Commander Gloop. I will also have my Kabuto Mushi prototypes, Infection 2.0 Glyos heads. Much of my work will have multiple thermo plastic colorways, gitd colorways, and of course clears.

    Make sure to stop by and introduce yourself. Nerd City is gonna have an INCREDIBLE aftershow party Friday night and Pop Culture Network has a suite @ the Hard Rock Hotel for Saturday night!

    I will be updating my blog w/ LOTS of photos of the C2E2 goodies this week.

    Jon, I have 2 last casts to complete your job...I will try to snap a quick photo, but, this is cuttin' it close. I will ship out before the USPS opens this morning so they go out immediately.

    LMK when they arrive (hopefully b4 you leave Thursday).

    TGB

    Thanks Marty! I got the pics - so sweet!

    Anyone who'll be at Wondercon should stop by my booth - there will be a whole bundle of resin on display, and the stuff Marty Just sent me is amazing! I'll get pics in here soon.

    Thanks Sean and Spencer! And sean - I'm going to have Cliff do some MUSCLE casts coming up in April - using the mold I just got back from TGB!

    About the heads though - the cupcake guy is my own head sculpt, whereas the drill head character's head was supplied to me by Matty at Smash Tokyo Toys (a 3D printed resin piece) ---> I mashed uüp the provided head with the same body I had used for the cupcake head figure.

    Since I'm on here and posting, here are a couple more pics of some of my resin work :)

    Another body style commissioned for the same drill head - these are the two 'test pulls' from the mold, which I painted. The mold went to someone else for casting in larger numbers.

    Well, with Wondercon fast approaching, it seemed like it was time to throw up some more pics here! So - here goes:

    Header art and figures for collab work with the GODBEAST! The figures still need some flash removed, but I'm on vaca in Europe for a couple weeks right now...

    Hey Folks. I put this in the 'Hinterlands' section, but figured it wouldn't hurt to have it here as well ;)

    I'll have my very first solo art show opening on May 12th, durring the Capitol Hill artwalk in Seattle!!! I know some of you guys are in the area, and maybe you'd like to stop by that day from 5-8pm at the Cakespy Shop. The show will be up for the month follwing the 12th as well.

    I'll have paintings (paper and canvases), handcast resin figures, some customs and some prints as well.

    Here's the Facebook page:
    http://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=205642242792412

    And here's some 'press release' type info:
    'Monsters, Cupcakes and Monster Cupcakes' will showcase paintings and toys from Seattle based character designer Jon Malmstedt - RAMPAGE TOYS! Jon's work focuses on fun and colorful creatures that just so happen to be monsters. Expect scenes of urban destruction a' la the classic films 'Godzilla' and 'Mothra', but with a bent in the direction of silly - instead of Godzilla think 'giant cupcake that has no arms.' The show will include paintings, custom vinyl toys, handcast resin figures and a couple collaborative pieces done with the Cakespy herself - something for anyone who loves monsters, cupcakes, monster cupcakes or all of the above! Oh, and need we mention that actual, real, edible and delicious CUPCAKES will be in attendance? YUMMY!!!'

    These are pretty great! Sure you won't make any more Ace unpaints? Would go great with the other guy. Also, the cupcake Buddha rules!

    I can guarantee there'll be at least ten new barrel chested mini ACE mash-ups soon that have been recast for Jon to sell from his original work. There will be 2 X 5 different colors.

    Thanks man! Sorry for the delayed response... I just finished driving across the country (seattle to Maryland), and the computer has been all bagged up for almost a week... I'm in withdrawl...

    Anyway, YES! Matty is sending me some figures and I'll try and pull together a little original header art to put on the guys! I'll get them up as soon as I can - once I have them. However...moving to Japan, and this might get delayed :-/ Also working on a couple small resin guys with Monstrehero and Mad Joe - soon! I'll get some stuff in the ol' shop this month. (buddhas, MUSCLE, etc.)


    @Matty - e-mail coming!

    A couple of years in the Motherland and ol' Jon has stepped in to the licensed game!
    This WF will see the debut of his very first Ultrakaiju, Jamira:


    Or Jamila, if you prefer. ;)

    I, for one, am happy to see that he's branching out into my favorite well of sofubi and toku history.

    More blather here on his blog.

    Doh! Look at that..another Jamila toy I'd like to own. :D Digging the color choices, texture, and most of all the look on his face. And nice header art to boot. This one has a hunchback feel that I definitely like...great work Jon!
