The Farewell Sale

April 24th, 2017

Sorry to disappoint some of you, no, I’m not dead! However, I’m about to say good-bye to NZ, where I’ve spent my past 20+ years, thank you NZ, you’ll be greatly missed.

So I’m clearing my NZ stocks, a chance for you to grab something at extremely low price, and any purchase is appreciated, they make my luggage lighter….and you know, I have plenty of toys to carry with me :P

Anyways, the FAREWELL SALE is on, head to my online shop now for some treats, sale ends May 1st or while stocks last. (sale only apply to NZ stocks)

Some New Phone Cases…

March 24th, 2017

Since my first release of iPhone 5/5S/SE cases with COOP, I’ve got requests for Samsung phones and newer iPhone cases, so here they are, an updated line up of new phone cases for all your iPhone and Galaxy phones!

Each design comes in 2 options, slim & tough. The slim case is a hard, one piece plastic shell that snaps right onto your phone. While it’s ultra slim at 2mm thick, it still offers protection. And the tough case is made up of two pieces for extra protection (a 2mm plastic outer shell that fits into a 2-4mm rubber bumper) without sacrificing sleekness!

New phone cases are available from my Threadless Artist Shop! For limited time, use code SPRNG17761b42 for FREE shipping. (Order minimum $45 US/$80 INTL. Can combine with clothing orders. Ends Mar 25 11:59PM CDT.)

Making of Aloha Lolligag Custom Toy

March 21st, 2017

I was recently asked to do a custom Lolligag for an upcoming show at Qpop gallery(details at the end), thank you Lolligag & QPop for having me! It was fun to experiment some new stuff and the whole process went super fast, it almost felt like I’m familiar with this character or something, I guess it has some similarity to my earlier drawing style. So the process goes like this…

Here comes the suspicious parcel…

Material shopping was done before I even received the blank, I knew exactly what I’m gonna do with it when QPop first send me the photos, I know I want to make it Gothic looking, trying to work with lace for the first time, without any textile knowledge, I was in shop touching, rubbing laces for like 20mins, going through all the black laces, people must have think I’m some kind of pervert, and to make it worse, I have a 2 years old singing and dancing The Wiggles next to me…. :P

Taking it apart, getting ready for paint! Pulling her arms out is nerve-racking, this thing feels like solid resin to me, so it doesn’t have the resilience like vinyl, luckily everything popped clean *phew*

Airbrushed red for the most parts…

Some more masking and back to airbrush the eye make ups…

Hand painting the rest…

Playing with the lace, hoping that it’d work like how I imagined…

Rose picking… sort of….

Time to assemble everything…

Result! I’m happy with how it turned out, especially the semi-transparent skirt. I’ve also replaced the lollipop with a metal cross that I forgot to document. Anyways, you can check out my Lolligag “Calamity” at QPop from this Friday.

Opening reception: Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 7 to 10PM.
