Web Page home

Hello this is my first attempt at figuring out what I want the feel of the new site to have. I like so far but im still searching. Its going to drive the feel not only of the monster story but every story.

Merl Color Version

So the idea in my head didn't quite materialize the way I envisioned it. Mistake 1. I held others reaction on the idea over my own. I thought the initial idea was cool. But after showing it around people seemed skeptical. Now after showing it to tons of more people I see the original idea was way more original than my own. Sigh.... Oh well we make mistakes to learn from them. All in all it was still fun and i learned a few things.

Meril my second prototype:)

Here's another toy idea I'm almost done with. This time I documented a lot more of the process. I think the paint job is definitely gonna sell this thing. But for now it might look a little odd. The idea has gone from a robot who over processes things, rescues a cat from a tree, and mistakenly strangles it :| . yeah a little dark. But then somehow i started rolling around the idea in my head of it being a giant robotic mouse thats sole mission is to destroy cats.... Yeah I had a bad cat experience. (this goes no further than the toys lol). Any who this idea was more fun for me so i pursued it. Hope you like!

This is a design that I'm doing for a group of robots that over process everything. This one's name is V-0. He basically thinks way too much.
Quick story note: He tries to save a young girls kitten and ends up strangling it too death once he nabs it from the tree. :(


This is the first of my new vinyl toy designs. His name is Biju. He's a guardian for angelic spirits. Unfortunately a demon has wounded his arm. Once touched he begins to turn evil, transforming into a demon himself. Hope you like and Ill be sure to keep u updated. Here's a bit of my process.

I'm going to just jump right into it!

So there is this quote that I love from Frank Gehry.

" You're best work is the expression of you're self. You may not be the best at it, but you're the only expert in it".

So staying true to these words this blog is me expressing my ideas and creations openly and honestly. I love criticism so please feel free to be completely honest with me. Most of all I hope to inspire, inform and entertain all of you. Have fun! I know I will^^
