Current Projects:My current project is turning my family's concept art into clean and proper finished figures. I have methods for increasing articulation while joining together ANY pieces fluidly, without recipes, and with 100% success, all without using extra fodder figures for the joints. Right now I am trying to formalize methods and create learning materials so that I can see what better artists than myself can do with my techniques. My practical training is in masonry, framing and trim carpentry, custom homes, rustic furniture, blacksmithing, jewelry making, and metal casting, and I bring these skills into the figures I craft up.
Comments:I started out altering and manipulating GI Joes around 28 years ago. After getting divorced I developed a toy mania, literally, and built up a large collection. Together my daughter and I have modified many male action figures into strong and unique females, complete with storylines. Many people start customizing to get certain figures, my motivation is more that most of the female hero figures are weak, wimpy, and pretty much look like pin-up models. So we have invented and built hundreds of female figures to change the balance. My favorite customs are the unique, creative, and inventive customs that some of the great artists on Figure Realm have crafted. Having a supportive community like figure realm means a lot to me. IM me with any questions or requests and I will do the best I can.
