I’ll be at Kidrobot San Francisco this sunday April 22, from 1pm – 3pm. Doing some live painting, demo techniques and chatting with folks. I’ll be showing off one of my upcoming pieces as well. Come say hi. I may shoot a rafel to win a Diamond Ninja War Machine.
Because of Huck Gee and Beast Brothers Royal Guard Skullendario Azteca release on April 20th, I’ve desides to delay the release of my latest custom until March 1st. I know all eyes will be on the Royal Guard. This is my first KR Mascot custom and I have to say I think it’s one of my best. It has been extremely challenging and I want everyone to notice it and hopefully appreciate it. So stay tuned, mark your calendar, follow this blog and connect with me on Facebook.
Diamond Ninja War Machine is armored and ready for war. Being creative artist of the streets, their armor suits protect them from the enemies who are blinded by beautiful street art.
Free runner style, Aztec Warrior Quauhtli, the eagle of the Aztec Warriors is ready for war. Battle, and his incredible craftsmanship of weapons are his specialties. He will dismember you with his maquahuitl (macahuitl), the Aztec sword if you dare step in front of him.
Quauhtli literally mean eagle in the Aztec language Nahuatl. Is available for grabs here. Accessories include a hand made maquahuitl (macahuitl), the Aztec sword and leather skirt (not removable). Limited to 5. These are hand crafted and painted. Some minor differences are expected.
This being the year the maya calendar ends and seeing all the discussions on the web, it took me back when I was a kid living in Mexico learning about the history of the Aztec’s and Maya’s.
I was born in the US, but at one point my family decided to move to Mexico. I attended 1st through 3rd grade there before we decided to come back to the states. I attended a catholic nun school. Yea, it’s true they slap your hands with a ruler. The schools there are a lot different. I don’t remember doing a lot of coloring or sculpting with play doh. There it’s more down to business. Learning history and math.
I remember learning about the Aztec culture. One of my favorite paintings was of the Aztec Warrior holding the maiden, with a background seen of the great volcano Popocatépetl, the second highest peak in Mexico after the Pico de Orizaba. The Aztecs were all about war and incredible weapon fabricators. My uncle was a collector of weapons and I remember seeing this bat with sharp rocks. The bat sword looked evil, and though I didn’t know what it was, it was clear to me it was a ruthless weapon.
All the above made this custom much more fun to work on. I hope you enjoy it.
Welcome to my new site were I will post new releases, teasers, and share some of my process or places and people I meet.
I’m flattered by the interest people have and the questions I get. I figured this is a good place to share with everyone. I sometimes like to share my experiences as well and of course show off my work when possible.
I hope you all visit often and leave comments when applicable. Lets give this a try and see how things go. Worst case scenario, this is not workingout and I can simply hit delete 😉
