Hollow Threat

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

this has been a long over due project, in 07′ i did a series of deadly beats artwork, it was heavily influenced by punk rock music i was listening to, in fact the name came from a punk band ‘minor threat’, and plan was to develop a punk rock themed t-shirt line, there were 6~7 designs i put together in 08′, just before the production begin, i decide to pull it, something was missing, they just don’t look right, i still can’t tell what it is….

hollowthreatuntil early 09′, suddenly i had this heavy metal idea pop up, remind me the days in high school, my mates were metal heads, they played all kinds of norwegian death/black metals in the art class, crazy days… when this idea came up, i quickly did a new heavy metal panda drawing, and other supporting characters, everything went smooth! so the hollow threat today is more of metal-ish project, however i’m still working/fixing the drawings from my initial ideas, hollow threat site is not quite ready, but u can get a first peek of what its about http://www.hollowthreat.com/

anyways, a little update on ‘metal spirit’ toy, its all painted, i’m about to take some product shots tonight, and they will be available for pre-order next week! so stay tuned :)

Metal Spirit : Work in Progress

Monday, March 16th, 2009

i’ve been quietly working on this new toy, it’s my first go on making toys myself, so after some trial and errors, im comfortable to announce this new project i’m doing!

it all began when i see some great artists like itokin park, jared deal….etc making their own resin toy, so i start searching for materials and how tos, it’s actually not that difficult, lot of steps, but its all straight forward, so anyone out there want to become a toy artist, it’s a perfect time to do so! this resin wave is going to be very exciting!! :)
