Those of you who are more musically astute than myself when it comes to Rock ’n’ Roll (probably at least 87% of you) might notice something about this beer: Image

First, it was famous chefs getting in on the beermaking. Then, charities got involved. And thanks to ...

Two weeks ago, I shipped out the last of my run of custom-carded Droids Zuckuss figures. It was awesome to get the project wrapped up, and the reception they received is a source of great pride. Amongst the responses: "Wow! Your artwork is absolutely spot-on and really makes the ...

Hey Everyone!

We've been working on some great stuff of late! You'll find lots of behind the scenes pics on our Facebook page and our site's been updated with great projects like these:

Several life-sized and realistic Lion puppets we created for a stage production. Check out in-progress, finished pics and even some fun videos on our site.

This Star Wars piece will certainly separate the regular fans from the mega fans! We recently had the privilege to restore one of Phil Tippett's original creatures from the famous cantina scene. You can find pictures of the restoration on our site.

That does it for this issue of the newsletter. Thanks for reading and we wish you all the best in this wonderful Halloween season!

This past Saturday I caught Gorilla Tango's latest SW-related production: “Boobs on Endor” A Return of the Jedi Burlesque. A wise Jedi Master once said “Do or do not, there is no try”, well the cast of this show definitely tried and DID put on a spectacular show, full of ...

I'm pleased to announce that I've finished assembling my run of Droids Zuckuss figures! And in even better news - they're already essentially SOLD OUT! All in all, a stellar project!

So now the only thing I need to decide is... who's next?? Image

Busted!!! (Part II)

I finally heard back from the seller of the item I was discussing last week who said he had screwed up all sorts of these SW photos (there’s a ringing endorsement) and said someone else had written him about the same thing in regards to a Jennifer Hale autograph he had for sale. He closed the message by thanking me, and then put it all back on the actors thinking they should have said something. I think a little knowledge beforehand on the part of the person obtaining the signature(s) would go a long way to avoid mishaps like this in the future, and could also add to the autograph’s authenticity, don’t you? Nice of him to reply, but I’m still not bidding on the item, for one, it’s too expensive, the other, and most important reason is the signature and the character he’s signing a photo of don’t match! It’d be like Anthony Hopkins signing a Bears jersey, Dennis Rodman signing a photo of Lando Calrissian, Laura Vandervoort signing a…, on second thought; she can sign anything she wants, as long as I’m standing right in front of her as she does it! SIGN YOUR NAME ACROSS MY HEART! I WANT YOU TO BE MY LA… Oh, sorry, got carried away.

After an excusable and unfortunate production delay, I've finally received my resin Zuckuss coins for my custom carded Droids Zuckuss run. And boy, are they glorious... Image

Top-notch work again by Bantha 5. All I had to do was paint the buggers. So the first order of business - prep!

There were a number of "rough edges" where the resin on the back extended beyond the edge of the coins. I filed those down. Then I mounted the coins to a block with painter's tape. Image

Next up - two thin layers of primer. Image

And finally - two layers of gold! Image

I think they turned out spectacular: Image

I'm going to let them cure for a week or so, with the intent to mount them the weekend of the 11th. I should be ready to ship them out on the 15th! The circle is almost complete!

I keep perusing eBay from time to time looking for authentic and reasonably priced SW autographs, I was checking some out this past weekend when I came upon one that caused a disturbance in the Force. Let's see if you agree with me.

I was looking up “Clone Wars signed” ...
