Aracnea...available 20th October!

Introducing Aracnea my first 7" custom munny - Aracnea's black heart hangs by the thread of a spider. Aracnea's job is to care for the spiders of the world but also control them. When the spiders numbers become too great he must extinguish their life causing black tears to fall from his dark, shining eyes.

New art for my walls!

Just a quick post to share the most fabulous artwork i have just hung on my walls as my custom frames arrived yesterday!

The first is one of my favorite artists, Caia Koopman with Lepidoptera's Locket. I have wanted this ever since I saw the painting on Caia's website and when she realeased the print I was the first to buy it! Caia sent me number 1 of 50! So happy! Check out her beautiful art here: Caia Koopman This is just such a beautiful image I am head over heels in love with it and have hung it right above my desk where I spend most of my time. :)

The second print is by another of my fave artists, the awesome super pow fabulous 64 Colors. I adore Marshall so just had to have this print. I chose a lovely weathered frame to reflect the feel of the print and think it looks fab! Go check out their fab stuffs here: 64 Colors

I am already feeling more myself though very tired so i'm sure thats a sign i'm improving and will be fit and well very soon!

Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart for all your support and get well wishes it really means a lot.

The Midnight Masquerade : Dunny series

Faraway in the small village of Orion's Hollow where the sun never casts her warm gaze and the moon presides over the land, live the midnight masquerade dunnies. Their gleaming eyes and sharp teeth have kept away unwanted visitors as they dance and play in the deepest dark woods of the hollow. Those who have been brave enough to venture to the village have never been seen again..

Available at Lunabee.co.uk : Tuesday 1st September, 6pm London time. Each Dunny is signed by artist and is 1/1

Custom Dink

After many many hours work (we're talking weeks lol) Dink is finally finished. She was hard work but in the end so worth it as her owner is delighted with her which makes me a happy bunny. There were over 80 unique flowers and countless raindrops all over the hair area which were probably the most time consuming parts as each flower and butterfly were given two coats of paint to help the colours really pop!

I hope you enjoy looking at these pics of her and would love to hear your comments and thoughts.

Lunabee: a timeline

I thought it was about time I set up a blog to post up piccies of my customs and details of giveaways and such, so here it is. First things first I am going to post up all my customs to date right here as kind of a timeline of my work :)

I hope you enjoy!

My very first custom. Me and Cris sat down one day and he forced me to give painting a try, after much protestingof 'i cant do it, i'll be rubbish' etc i gave it a go and voila:

Next up came this tiny guy, a present off Cris for me to practice on:

Two more Qees later than I decided to give a Dunny a shot:

I then moved onto Mini Munnies, how i love you Mini Munnies!

And then finally decided I had made one good enough to sell, and it did in the space of ten minutes! Meet Matojo:

I decided to keep the tribal theme running with the 'Ki-ki Booshka tribe' and created Goredema The Storm Maker, each tribe member having their own little bio and back story:

The tribe theme led onto Chief Kijani who was my most popular munny to date and sold out super fast!

I was spotted by the fantastic Drilone who asked me to participate in the SF show ' Into the Darkness' at 1am Gallery and thus came about my first show piece 'DAMU: The darkest heart' My first custom MadL which sold on the gallery opening night:

After Damu came my very first custom commission a pink themed mini munny who is still one of my personal favorites to date:

Then came my 2nd MadL and 2nd Dunny in the form of this Flutterface Duo which sold out instantly:

I fancied trying a different figure and with my love for bunnies a labbit seemed like the perfect choice, Nightshade was created and sold on my store:

Then it was back to mini munnies with this custom 'Sweet Dreams' another instant seller, hurrah!

Then one of my trickiest customs to date was a custom Arkski set 'Vela, Lumo & Baby Mino' bought by a lovely lady in sunny California. It amazes me to think pieces of my artwork are now all over the world!

Back to mini munnies again for the next custom in the form of 'Glory' This was the first time I varnished a custom and was so pleased with the result:

I felt I had been given so much support from the fabulous toy community, in particular Twitter and the KR forums that I wanted to give something back. It was approaching my 26th Birthday (June this year) and tied it in with that as a birthday giveaway in the form of this fab Qee by Toy2R. In a name out of the hat competition and with over 100 entrants, the brilliant Andy from TRE blog won this custom named 'Yooku' :

Another custom commisison cropped up for a lovely lady in New Zealand! I created this butterfly themed duo of mini munny and dunny and she was thrilled with them ^_^

Thanks to Drilone again I was asked to participate in the Vimobot custom show at SDCC this year, so very exciting! Here were my three customs 'Shaman, Tor and Nimbus' :

For my third show piece I was contacted by a great guy, Ryan from IKSentrik for the Frome festival,, my piece sold via the online web store. I decided to paint up another labbit as i so enjoyed the last one and had another experiment with contrasting fades on the base colour. This cutie was named 'Carnival'

Another custom cutie for the shop with a bit less evil than normal! Meet Ina and the rain dove:

My 4th show piece here, was a Robolucha custom for the Robolucha show curated by VISEone. I swapped the head for a mini munny head as i wanted him to look more like a mini munny in a space suit from the future. I named him Yuma and tied him in with the Ki-Ki Booshka tribe story:

I decided to try my hand at another Vimobot custom as i love the shape of the figure and came up with this little terror, current available on my store 'Hakan the Firemaster'

Which brings us bang up to date with my latest Dunny duo custom commission from a fab guy on the KR forums:

Here's to many more customs! I am now creating custom vinyl full time along with my freelance design work and have some very exciting things in the pipeline for the end of 2009 - 2010. Thanks to everyone who has supported me, bought a custom or just made a nice comment about one of my customs it really does give me a boost!

Special thanks to my best friend Cris Rose for all his support and encouragement to give this a go and to Drilone for giving me the chance to be in my first show and to Toys R Evil and Vinyl Pulse for your support and coverage of my work.
