1952 Seymour Spyder

I was approached a while back by a guy in New Zealand who wanted me to customise a collectors diecast car as a commission. When I first saw the size of the car I was slightly worried about how I could still give it detailing as a sculpture. Once I got that sorted I was straight into it and it was a heap of fun.
The car measures only 10 cms in length and as you can see it fits on the palm of your hand. The character and added car parts are made from polymer clay and are hand painted and varnished. He also has tattoo decals which are to scale and comes with a custom display case I made as the the original one didn't fit after modifications were added ;)
The modal of the original car is a 1952 300L Mercedes Spyder, hence the '1952 Seymour Spyder', kind of fitting...

'Retired Wrestlers' Print set

I have been working away on this new print set title 'Retired Wrestlers'. I was a huge WWF fan when I was a kid and thought it would be fun to do some simple character studies of some fictional washed up wrestlers.

The prints are 14.5 x 19.5 including a 5mm white boarder and are printed onto 300gsm archival 100% Recycled paper. The recycled paper soaks up way more ink than synthetic mixed papers resulting in really rich tones/colours and a soft matt finish. Ohhhhhhh.

I decided to keep this set as an open edition making them more affordable and in a different price range from my limited edition Giclees. The prints are still signed both front and back.

You can purchase the prints separately though my etsy store as well as though my galleries in a special packaged set like you can see in the pics below.
