i found this under the bed…

does it look good?

Hello friends! I will be packing / moving / freaking out for the next week or so, I hope to get back to the arting shortly thereafter. Man I am finding some crazy stuff in here.

Some news and pics of fun things later this week, particularly if you are a fan of toys and large international comic conventions.

what a strange factory…

This guy was made for the Stranger Factory opening celebration show!

Apologies for the lack of regular updates recently, been busy behind the scenes with projects, life, death and moving. Things will be a little more settled later this summer, in the mean time keep an eye out for a studio / moving sale in the near future.

Worrible wants hugs

Remember that giant squishable monster we filled a pit with about a month ago? Well, those are all gone, but the regular edition (with drools instead of blood!) is finally here!

About 16″ around of huggable madness. He will be available at shop.deadzebra.com , squishable.com and select retailers starting late this week!


Instructions for use: Each super soft and squishy Worrible is genetically engineered to be in tune with human anxiety, fear and doubt. Grab one, give it a squeeze (5 seconds or more) and your problems will be absorbed into to the Worrible’s own body and subsequently converted into a calming excretion. Repeat whenever overwhelmed.

The end.

3D Art Exhibition and Signing

I don’t know how they will contain that much awesome in one room, but I look forward to finding out!
