Fonotune Kickstarter

Fabian Huebner wrote to me the other day to inform me that he had started a Kickstarter project to help fund the rest of his film Fonotune. He told me that he was doing this in order to retain artistic freedom and control over the project. The bulk of the film is complete but more money is needed to add some important desert scenes and to finish the principal shooting.

There are some great rewards on offer such as soundtracks, comics, posters, art books etc. with pledges starting at $5. I have finally finished my set of paper toys and these are also available as part of one of the reward packs.

Please had over to the Kickstarter page and help fund this amazing film.
There is also a Facebook page dedicated to the project.

Jet Plastic and Fonotune

Last year I was invited by German designer Fabian Huebner of Fint design to provide work for 2 very exciting projects. The first was to create a cover illustration and some logos for a new comic anthology that he is working on called Jet Plastic.
I have included my logo and a preview of the illustration here, but please head over to the site for more details on the project as well as a look at the other fantastic artists involved.

The second project was to provide some paper toys to promote Fabian’s feature film Fonotune.
Though it is taking me a long time, eventually there will be a toy for each of the 3 main characters in the film.
Last month an exhibition event was held in Berlin to promote the film called Fntnism and samples of my first toy were handed out to visitors. Fabian kindly sent me a pack of goodies from the event and again you can get a sneak peek of my work in the image below.

701 Industries


Time for a long overdue update.
Here is the colour version of my illustration Sharktopus.
I made this for my buddy Chris Rauen who I mentioned in a previous post.

Chris actually runs a business called 701 Industries that makes parts for jet skis, which will hopefully help make sense of my illustration.
Check out their Facebook page here.

I also did some logo work for 701 that can be seen on a lot of their products:

Calling All Cars: Marsimoto

For the first time in a long while here is a Calling All Cars custom – in fact the 45th artist custom so far.
I actually received this some time last year, so can’t even begin to apologise for how late I am in posting it.
This great design comes from young German artist Elias Heinel.
It is a homage to German rapper Marsimoto and comes complete with a mini boombox and street diorama.
Head over to Horrorwood Hills to grab the free download.

Kickstarter Success

Totally after the fact as usual but I am incredibly pleased to announce that the Shove It! Kickstarter was a success and we ended up with 45% over the target fund raising amount. This means that the exhibition will go ahead as planned in June. Many thanks to Baykiddead and all involved for their hard work.

I myself made a small contribution to get hold of an awesome commemorative t-shirt designed by British illustrator Uberkraaft featuring the following image:

Here also is a full reveal of my design. I have ordered a few decks for myself and can’t wait to see how the real thing looks.

As for the paper toy you will have to wait for the exhibition.

Shove It! Kickstarter

A Kickstarter program has now been started by Baykiddead to help cover the costs of putting on the Shove It! exhibition that I introduced in my last post.
However they are not simply asking for donations – with Kickstarter rewards are offered depending on how much you contribute. For example if you pledge $75 then you can receive one of the decks from the exhibition. This time the pledge range is from between $5 and $10000. The project must reach its target of $6250 by April 3rd or all pledges will be lost.

Below is an updated selection of decks designs that have been submitted so far and also a widget displaying the current status of the campaign.
Every little helps so please contribute if you can. It’s a chance to help a great project and get hold of some amazing artwork.

Shove It!

A little while back paper pal Baykiddead invited me to take part in a very exciting project.
He told me that he was gathering artists for a group exhibition entitled Shove It! to raise money to build America’s largest free outdoor skatepark in downtown Des Moines (Iowa).
My job was to design a skateboard deck and accompanying paper toy.

The deck proved to be a big challenge as it a unique size and shape to work with and it took me a lot longer than I expected. Thankfully I just managed to finish my pieces before the deadline.
Baykiddead just revealed a preview of the first 5 designs, which can be seen above.
My design is titled “False Idol” and is my usual occult demon face affair.

Shove It! will take place from June 7th at the Polk County Heritage Gallery in Des Moines.
All the details including the artist line-up etc. can be found by clicking here.
There is also a Shove It! Facebook page.

I am extremely grateful for this amazing opportunity and hope that my contribution will go some way to helping realize this very worthwhile project.

去年の年末にペーパークラフト関係の友達Baykiddeadに凄く面白いプロジェクトに参加しないかと招待された。
そのプロジェクトとは、アメリカ最大の無料スケートボード場を作るための資金を集めるグループアート展。
展示会のタイトルは「Shove It!」(「ショービット」)で、今年アイオワ州の州都デモインで開催する予定です。
僕の仕事はスケボとペーパークラフトの2点セットのデザイン。

スケボのためのイラストは初めてで、サイズと形は普段描くイラストと全然違うので結構大きなチャレンジだった。思ったより時間が掛かったがどうにか締め切りまで2作を完成させた。
今週Baykiddeadはスケボのデザインを5枚披露しました。(上の写真)
僕のデザインのタイトルは「False Idol」(偶像)で、いつも通りのオカルトなイメージです。

Shove It!はデモインのPolk County Heritage Galleryで6月7日から開催される予定。参加アーティストなどの詳しい情報はこちら専用Facebookページもあります。

この凄いプロジェクトに参加出来て本当に嬉しい。スケートボード場が実現されれば最高です。
