Mourning Mooncalf

Coming jolly soon, a very limited edition, hand painted version of the Pobber production figure Humphrey Mooncalf.

I painted six Mourning Mooncalfs in the black, purple and tarnished silver colours which have become an ongoing series in their own right.
In addition each has been given a neck tie to complete the outfit.

Signed on the underside and numbered in an embossed fashion on the rear of each 8″ tall piece, Humphrey comes in his usual box with FREE worldwide tracked shipping.

“Humphrey Mooncalf had a reoccurring problem with his Travithick No. 4 Nano-clockwork brain.
Repeated trips to the watch-smith proved a great success.
The pain held at bay by loosening his cranial rivets.
This however means that he can no longer look up.
Such a shame, as he does so love the moon”

Available from my online store on Friday 13th February at 6pm UK time.

Collector Cards from Pobber



Launching on 23rd of December is a whole new screen printed adventure with Mechtorians.
Pobber ( the makers of the popular Humphrey Mooncalf vinyl toy) are launching a series of collectable cards with my artwork on them :

There is a total of 4 cards in the first set. Each Mechtorian card is limited to 250 original plus 50 GID variants. All cards are screen-printed on double thick French Construction off-white 100lb card stock in Florida USA. They are crisply printed, high quality heavy duty cards and we call them Collectible Art Cards.



All Mechtorian card orders will be shipped in custom packaging. For added protection, each card will be inside individual plastic sleeves before placed into a top loader so no scratches or dents will happen in transit to your collection. On top of that, i will be supplying some Pobber sticker goodies for every order.



The Mechtorian cards will be sold in packs of 4 for $16. You are guaranteed a full set of 4 Mechtorian character cards when you purchase a pack but not every pack will contain the GID chase variant. So exactly how many packs are there? If you have been counting, that means there are only a total of 300 packs or 1200 cards across 4 characters for this series.

Designer Con 2011 Recap

Amanda Louise Spayd Doktor A collaboration sketch

The weekend of the 5th/6th November was spent in (abnormally) not-so-sunny California. A mere 14 hours plane ride for this pasty English fellow.
The reason for the trip? The annual gathering of the art-toy clans at the premier geek event that is Designer Con..

This was my second year in attendence so I had some idea what to expect.
Though the hall at the Pasadena convention centre had now changed to their main room and the booth numbers swelled by about 30%. It was a bigger, brighter and ballsier show that any other in it’s previous five year run.

I was stationed this year at the Circus Posterus booth with fellow collective artists Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, Chris Ryniak and Amanda Spayd.
(I didnt get much chance to grab photos of my own so I have scalped these off the web. Thanks to Shinji, Brad and George and those others who took them).

This was me and Amanda behind out booth, showing off our Japanese cookies. A lovely gift from awesome collector, store owner and all round splendid fellow Shinji Nakako.
Most of the day was spent vending out megre wares to the friendly masses and doodling endless monsters and robots for anyone who wanted them. The one at the top of this page was a rare collaborative sketch between Amanda and myself for some lucky chap who seemed jolly pleased with it.

Me and Chris Ryniak were also interviewed in a live web streamed chat show type escapade by the Super Sucklord. You can view the whole 6 hour talkathon via the Toy Break Ustream channel (click on the “LIVE” link ) or just watch our part here (it’s around the 2h30 mark). Kathie and Brandt also made it to the couch very near the end of the day.

My “Nocturnal” Humphrey Mooncalf figure was released as a con exclusive by 3D Retro. And I sat for a while at their booth signing them for people who purchased.
I am sure they will have any remaining stock available online in the next few days.

The event also saw the quiet unveiling of my latest production toy venture.
Chester Runcorn is a new 6″ figure to be released by Kuso Vinyl mid next year. They sneekily has secreted one of the prototypes in their display cabinet and we waited to see if anyone would notice. Indeed they did, very quickly!  I was fielding questions about the new arrival all day whilst I believe the poor Kuso booth staff had to fend off offer to purchase the prototype for hours upon end..


And just like that it was all over.
A very fast day indeed, probably amplified by a somewhat jet-lagged brain no doubt. I got to do one full curcuit of the hall this year. Which was 50% more than last year and even picked up a few presents.

If you love toys of the odd handmade or small run veriety. Or designer vinyl and underground art, I can recommend Designer Con as a cracking day out.. The door price is a fraction of SDCC, for a far superior, friendlier and more relaxed convention.
Ayleen and Ben hosted a splendid show this year and I hope to be back in the near future.


The next day was spent wandering the streets of DisneyLand in the rain and sampling its dubious wares with the Circus Posterus crew and some lovely members of the Sideshow Forum there…. I will let the photos speak for themselves..
