Hey guys! I'm very excited to finally be releasing this guy into the wild.
He's a sculpt that I originally made over a year ago, and have been looking for the right way to reproduce him. Luckily I just happen to have a friend named Victoria (victoriarosepuppets.com) who is a casting wizard and who has been able to recreate some very interesting color variations for me out of her studio in Oakland. The first colorway is called "Jade" which is translucent in the fins and allows some light to shine through the body. each one is unique and has different variations of color and translucency.
I'll be putting up a select few for sale in my shop this Friday, and will be bringing some to NYCC and DesignerCon.
I spent this past month adventuring through Mongolia with my 2 sisters. We had such an amazing experience staying in gers with nomadic families and exploring the countryside. Now I'm back in the studio working away on some new projects which I'll be sharing with everyone soon, but first, trip photos!
Hiking down through the White Cliffs
A baby camel crying for it's mama. they make the craziest noises, which was funny until we realized that they were going to be crying all night long right outside of our ger.
We also had the pleasure of riding these giant ornery beasts.
Gobi cricket! The craziest bug I've ever seen.
This wild little boy of one of the families we stayed with wanted us all to hop on the back of the bike with him, not sure where he was planning on taking us.

The Flaming Cliffs
Wild horses! We were lucky to get to see the nearly extinct Tahki horse, which have been recently reintroduced into their natural habitat in central Mongolia.
The collector, not exactly sure what this guy was up to, but he's holding a penis shaped rock with a baby inside and was surrounded by skull totem poles.
Goats eating the offerings of the ovoo.
The most amazing boots at the black market in Ulaanbaatar.
