Hollow Threat + Authentic Counterfeit Clothing

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Hollow Threat Clothing

The desire to start a online clothing store came from the “Center of the Universe” design, we want to make this tee for our little boss so bad, it leads to a complete series of Hollow Threat collection, with some new and old artworks, most of the old work has been revisited, tweaked to new standard.

Authentic Counterfeit Clothing

Authentic Counterfeit is a fun and silly project where I play with images stuck in my head, a result of the materialistic world we live in today.

Are you like me, when you see clown fish, you call them nemo? Don’t recall seeing lemur in the zoo, but you remember seeing King Juliens? If you are like me, you are going to “see things” when you look at Authentic Counterfeit designs.

All designs are available in multiple styles and colors, for men, women & kids, thanks to the flexibility of Threadless, I can have matching tees with my little one!

Store is now OPEN, please go check them out & get yourself covered ;-)

Hollow Threat Clothing Teaser 2016

There has been a tee idea floating in my head for months, an idea inspired by my 1 year old son, which I’ve always wanting to make this tee for him but couldn’t find the time to actually make it happen, so one day I received an invite to start an on-demand clothing shop, it’s perfect for the idea I have, so I decide to create that design….and a few for myself, somehow it end up with a series of Hollow Threat collection plus a little more!

So yeah, I’m launching the Hollow Threat clothing + a new line called “Authentic Counterfeit” on Thursday, April 14.

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

continuing from Sushi Inu W.I.P – part 1, now that we have the master sculpt done, its time to get messy with chemicals…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-20preparing the mold base with klean klay…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-21building legos wall…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-22pouring silicone, this is 2nd part of the 2-part mold…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-23completed silicone molds! ran into problem casting the ears, fail rate was too high, and i have to remake the molds for the ears…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-24casting Sushi Inu(s), it’s a war zone…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-25limited numbers of Sushi Inu blanks were made, hundreds of parts, countless hours of touch up and sanding… think back now, it seems like a bad decision to create this figure in separate parts?!
Sushi_Inu_WIP-26first layer of the gradient…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-27second layer of gradient, this is the main reason for separate parts, more control over the coloring…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-28giving the sushi a little bit of flavor…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-29face painted!
Sushi_Inu_WIP-30…and the back
Sushi_Inu_WIP-31seaweed wrapped, all parts painted, ready to put them all together!
Sushi_Inu_WIP-32super glued, they are not articulate-able, well…theres no point to have articulation for such short little legs anyway :P
Sushi_Inusealed with layers of protection coats and the Sushi Inu was born! most time consuming piece i’ve done to date, only 10 were made, 5 of them will be on my online shop from Friday 7 November, 3pm EST/12 noon PST/8pm London time.

the other 5 will be available at DesignerCon this weekend,  booth 203 (Good Awful), be sure to check out some of NZ’s lowbrow art showcasing at booth 203’s Tiny Travelling Gallery(such a rad mobile gallery/suitcase!), plus Good Awful’s debut resin creations, it’s gonna be a very “yummy” booth! :-)

hello! its been awhile, i’ve been busy with the family and preparing for some DCon releases, Sushi Inu is a completely new toy design based on one of my Sushi Kaiju drawing, and most challenging piece i’ve made so far(technically), anyways, this is how it was made… Sushi_Inu_WIP-01starting with sketch and foil skeleton…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-02briefly warped up with super suclpey
Sushi_Inu_WIP-03with some help from the back of a marker pen, i was able to press the holes in even size…or close enough, these are for the legs!
Sushi_Inu_WIP-04shaped the seaweed warp…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-05preparing paper stencils…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-06

Sushi_Inu_WIP-11his little butt and tail
Sushi_Inu_WIP-13now that features are done, time to fill in with sushi rice…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-15Sushi Inu’s body complete!
Sushi_Inu_WIP-16moving on to his parts! for the ears, i drew the ear guide with sharpie on a piece of baking paper…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-17sculpt onto the baking paper that warps around the sushi, so that it maintain the shape and not stick onto the surface…
Sushi_Inu_WIP-18sharpie marked guide will transfer onto oil based sculpey surface, very helpful for me to continue shaping the ear part…
