Oh man! #designercon is over and I am so ready to chill. I had a fantastic show and sold my new tiki mugs to some people I really look up to - @bigtoeart (Tom is a great artist and has always been a huge influence on my tiki and car related art.), and Michael @mondonews (I cant believe these guys came by and bought my tiki mugs. I had to go change my pants afterwards. 😬. Anyway I’m gonna throw the rest of my stuff I didn’t sell up on my website very soon and announce that on my IG here once I get done self medicating and relaxing from this awesome trip. Thanks @designercon for this event and see you next year. #designercon #dcon #designercon2018
Last day for #designercon ! Holy shit what a weekend. Got a good amount left. Hopefully I will have less to bring home, but if I do I will put it on my website for everyone to grab if you couldn’t make it to the show.
All setup! Ready for business at #designercon ! Booth 538! Come say hi and check out my stuff. #dcon #anaheim #anaheimconventioncenter
Setting up at #designercon ! All the dumb stuff is setup... now for the fun stuff. Hope to see you all here this weekend. Come by and give me a high five and I’ll give you some stickers. #designercon2018 #dcon
Here’s a one-off creepy clown pot for #designercon. Came out pretty cool! I should’ve made more! Doh!
Here’s another one-off exclusive for #designercon this weekend! #pottery #ceramics #ceramic #sculpture #clay
Here’s another little creepy pot I made for #designercon . I finally found a good flesh colored glaze I’m happy with . Reminds me of that movie event horizon for some reason. #ceramics #pottery #clay #sculpture #babydoll #darkart
Out of the 3 ashtrays I made only one didn’t get ruined. I did a simple glaze and did some simple tattoo designs on it. Came out pretty cool. Only one! And I’m bringing it to designercon. #ceramics #sculpture #ashtray
I’m doing crafty old lady stuff! My wife and I put these nice little faux succulent arrangements to put inside the baby head pots I made. I think they will make them more sellable. Like an added bonus. But you can always plant your own stuff in the pots I make. I usually make sure there’s a hole in the bottom for proper drainage. #artnerd #crafty
I made only 8 of these mummy mugs! Exclusively for Designercon this weekend! #tiki #tikimug #tikitiki #tikilove #mummy #designercon #dcon #designercon2018 #biggsstudio
Here’s the new baby arm vials I made. Half of them didn’t come out the way I wanted but they are cool anyway. Comes with bonus wine bottle stopper. Put your poisons, weed, or potions in them! #ceramics
Here’s the other stitched one I did. #ceramics #designercon2018 #pottery
I’m going to be posting some pics of some stuff I made for #dcon #designercon . Here’s a cool pot I made, ready to plant a succulent in! #ceramics #pottery #clay #sculpture
3-2-1 ignition! First thing in the morning I’m pushing the button. Final stuff for #designercon #dcon
Last group of stuff I am about to load into the kiln for the glaze fire! This is where I kneel down and pray to the kiln gods for success.
Started a kick ass thestral tattoo! I love Harry Potter.... come get some nerdy tattoos from me please! Can’t wait to finish this piece. #harrypottertattoo #thestral #thestraltattoo #tattoo #tattoos #studio21tattoo
Almost done making these crystal stoppers for my baby arms or use them as wine stoppers!
Here’s what they look like after wiping and sanding the mason stain off. I love this method. Gives me more control on how much “weathering” and “antiquing” I want. Now I just have to spray glaze clear over it to seal the stain on there. #tiki #tikimug
Messing around with some mason stains. Looks crazy but most of it gets wiped off. That’s next! Stay tuned for after wiped shots! That’s now a godamned hashtag! #afterwipedshot #tiki #tikimug #tikitiki #tikibar #tikitime #tikilife
Did a couple sweet old school video game tattoos. I love metroid-vania lately. And this is right up my alley. #studio21tattoo #metroid #castlevania #tattoo #tattoos #videogametattoo
