I can’t believe that October is about over and the Holidays are around the corner ! I’ve been super busy with several secret projects that will be revealed in the upcoming weeks ! One of them was a surprise chance to do something.. that was not in my schedule but needless to say I could not say no ! It was a very tight turnaround on it and I was kinda sacred I would mess it up … but I think it came out well and hopefully everyone else will think so too ;-P Ya I know you haven’t seen it .. haha, in due time … the other stuff was mostly several new paintings for a new figure release, I think should be in November.
Add to all this all the usual customs for shows I have to do and lets just say I am losing track of the days ! Lucky for me San Francisco has had several weeks of above average weather .. some days downright HOT .. while I don’t care for hot weather, it’s perfect for my Monster Kolor painting outside … something that gets much more difficult during the normal winter.
Moving forward I’ll be in a plush form show at OhNoDoom gallery and a Rotofugi show in December called “Raising Tide 2 ” curated by LilJapan, several FOE Gallery shows for early 2012 and the big thing for me is a 2 person show in Tokyo, Japan in late March with women artist ( and fellow cat lover ) Konatsu !!
I have to admit I’m not quite sure why I should be in this show with her at all… if anything my art will bring down the quality of her work ;-P But the die is cast, and I will be starting to work on my art and customs for this show. We have a few surprises in the works too … so fingers crossed those will debut in time for the show 😉
Of course the toy releases continue … new colorways and brand new figures, too. Plus a few projects that have been percolating on the back burners for a few months .. that will quite frankly may be unexpected …haha.. but that’s what this Kaiju lifestyle is all about. I think stretching the direction you’re going in is always a good thing and I’m not afraid of failure.
Really to me there is no failure, it’s all about trying new things and experiencing life. Yes, I get stuck in a rut sometimes, but that’s the best time to strike out and do something in the opposite direction.
Thanks once again to all the Max Toy fans and supporters out there .. i don’t get a chance to thank you enough, but your support over these 5+ years has really allowed me to realize Captain Maxx and all the other Kaiju, Seijin and More in many different forms and media.
Toy Karma to you my friends !
