The “The Faded Daguerreotype” colorway is a vintage monotone delight in shades of Sepia with delicate printed details.

Discarded with the sump oil at a very early age, Bella was swept downstream until she found herself by the sea. She soon made friends with all forms of aquatic creatures and was taken in and raised by a family of Kraken (the smaller lesser spotted variety). Upon reaching adulthood she returned to the surface and emerged into society, remodelled after her adoptive kin folk. The tentacles do not raise many comments around town. But her insistence on always waring a mask certainly does. Much speculation is whispered about her true identity. And one day she will reveal her secret to the father who left her for dead…

An all new original Mini Mechtorian resin figure for ToyconUK.
Created entirely by hand by Doktor A this is a true Mechtorian art multiple. Sculpted, molded, cast, finished and painted by the Doktor. Only 10 of these 2″ tall mini-figures were created exclusively for ToyCon UK.
Each of the super limited edition comes signed, numbered and bagged in a header carded pack. Each piece is created to the same level of detail and finish as the Doktor’s gallery show pieces. Each is lovingly hand made and thus each piece is unique.
Dont miss your chance to purchase a micro Mechtorian figure every bit as good as his larger cousins. £70 each from Booth number 17 at ToyconUK in London 12th April.

Now retired, the colonel was constructed to lead the army of Retropolis. To this day there has been no need for military action, though this doesn’t stop a perpetually sozzled Rombus telling tall stories of how he showed the natives a thing or two during his time in the Congo…
Originally designed for Mini Mechtorians toy series 2, Rombus got as far as a 3″ tall prototype before the project was cancelled.
Photos of that prototype resurface on the internet now and then and he has become a popular and much requested character.
April 12th 2014 sees the debut of a new incarnation of the Colonel.
A revised, all new 6″ tall “Coldcast Bronze” edition of 50 pieces will debut at ToyconUK .
Sculpted by Doktor A and hand cast and antiqued in England by Baroque Designs (who previously did such a splendid job with the Phizogs).This hefty solid piece features an inset glass eye lens and real metal Brass winding key. Each piece is signed and numbered by Doktor A.
15 piece will be available at Toycon for the price of £65 with the rest to follow soon online.

“Marcus Warren Entwhistle”
Bringer of synthetic Lanolin to the unclean masses.

The annual sculptural show curated by Chet Zar opens this Friday at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica California.
I have a new piece in the show ( see previous post) and the collaborative piece I did with Chet earlier in the year will also be on display again. There is lots of top notch talent in this show so give yourself a treat and visit if you possibly can.
Horace Mooch was teased through school for his moustache which had unfortunately been installed upside down. Unable to afford a replacement he taught himself basic metalworking skills and fashioned himself a new one.
The replacement never reached his face. So exquisite was it that the Dean of his collage purchased it for himself and started a trend for handmade Tashes. So taken was he with his new found talent and popularity that he set up in business and soon became the go-to place for high end facial adornments. The little workshop was passed from father to son and is now in the fourth generation. Each Horace in turn waring their own Tash upside down in memorium of the founder.

My piece for the Conjoined IV sculpture show curated by Chet Zar. Opening at the Copro Gallery in Santa Monica on the 18th of January.
Launching on 23rd of December is a whole new screen printed adventure with Mechtorians.
Pobber ( the makers of the popular Humphrey Mooncalf vinyl toy) are launching a series of collectable cards with my artwork on them :
There is a total of 4 cards in the first set. Each Mechtorian card is limited to 250 original plus 50 GID variants. All cards are screen-printed on double thick French Construction off-white 100lb card stock in Florida USA. They are crisply printed, high quality heavy duty cards and we call them Collectible Art Cards.
All Mechtorian card orders will be shipped in custom packaging. For added protection, each card will be inside individual plastic sleeves before placed into a top loader so no scratches or dents will happen in transit to your collection. On top of that, i will be supplying some Pobber sticker goodies for every order.
The Mechtorian cards will be sold in packs of 4 for $16. You are guaranteed a full set of 4 Mechtorian character cards when you purchase a pack but not every pack will contain the GID chase variant. So exactly how many packs are there? If you have been counting, that means there are only a total of 300 packs or 1200 cards across 4 characters for this series.
