New work for Zero Friends Group show

I’m excited to announce that I’ve finished a new series of sculptures and toys for the upcoming Zero Friends group show! As is the case with the majority of my work these days, all sales will go towards my Drab Future project. Full details about the show are at the bottom, but first I’d like to show off some selections of the new work.
Full gallery of work here

I’ve finished twelve new small annexbots. Each one custom, with sculpted faces and unique details, all hand painted.

These guys are based on one of my older designs for the Annexbot chess set. These characters were designed to be a small collectible platform to customize, and I’ve made many of them now. I’ve been toying with some rules that would use these guys in table-top game, but its still a long way off…

Voltron Guy
I started with one of my Richards and a few annexbot parts, and came up with something unexpected.

This guy is more of a kitbash/toy mod than my usual work. I generally have a rule for myself againsed using existing parts. It feels like cheating to not take something out of context and completely re-imagine it.

So I tried to fight it when I set this Richard bot down in the bits box and he lined up with some Voltron parts I tried to fight it. In the end it was just too cool not to do.

Robot Gynoid
The newest edition to my Gynoid dolls This robot shows his age. I wanted to use many exposed parts, to show it in a state of disassembly.

I dug into some of my jars of parts and gathered watch bateries and hardware, radio tubes and wire and weathered with layers of mixed pigment and rust

The radio tube-head is a slight nod to Christopher De Leon. I picked up one of his scetches from a gallery near my studio. He has got some great work and character designs;( http://truevisuals.tumblr.com/ )
