Star Wars The Force Awakens Nesting Dolls! This set features Kylo Ren, Rey, Finn and BB-8. It's a 4 piece set and the largest doll measures in at 4.75 inches and the smallest at 1.25 inches. This one was fun. I really enjoy the working on the details, especially on the weapons and the little BB-8.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Nesting Cans are here! This set was inspired by Season 10 Episdoe 1, "The Gang Beats Boggs". It's the episode where the gang attempts to break Wade Bogg's record of drinking 70 beers on a cross country flight! This set was shaped like a can, so made the front side the characters and the back side the "premium light beer" they guzzle down in the episode. The largest can is 5 inches and the smallest is 0.75 inches. From largest to smallest you have Dennis, Mac, Dee, Charlie and Frank.
This set will be part of Gallery 1988's Idiot Box show. Opening Friday, May 13th, 7-10 pm.

It's the Brundlefly nesting doll (inspired by David Cronenberg's 1986 cult classic The Fly)! This 5 piece set shows the transformation of Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum). The largest doll is 4.5 inches tall and the smallest is the size of a real life fly at just 1 inch. This might be the grossest thing I've ever painted. Don't worry, he's not contagious.
See these guys in Gallery 1988's 30 years Later show. Opening March 25th, 7-10pm at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles. The show runs thru April 9th.

I recently was commissioned to make an Archie nesting doll! Painting this one was a blast! The largest doll is Archie, of course, followed by Betty, Veronica, Jughead, Reggie, Sabrina (the teenage witch), Hot Dog, and Salem the cat. All are hand painted with acrylics. The largest doll is 8 inches tall and the smallest is 3/4 of an inch. Thanks Barclay!
