Food with Faces

Even tho it's pretty much all I do these days, I never think to post stuff from work. Probably because once something finally makes it from concept all the way to finished, I generally never want to think about it again. But anyway, I was organizing stuff and realized I have make a pretty ridiculous amount of food with faces on, so here's some of that.

Foodbags! Michelle drew the burger, and I drew the fries, then speced them (picked materials & drew up the instructions for the factory as to how they should construct the bag, what size it is, what should be printed/embroidered/appliqued, etc etc.)

I gave the fry bag a mini fry zipper pull. Very proud of myself that day.

My favorite pin ever.

I try to work those little butt Xs into as much stuff as I can.

Senor Taco there might be a tad stereotypical, but he's just so cute with his little excited sauce buddy.

If I was popcorn, I don't know how happy I would be about exploding, but these dudes all seem pretty into it. Except for the ones whose faces seem to have exploded off of them...

I love this dude. He has totally accepted his fate with a straight face and stoic heart.

Alls I have to say about this is NACHO PARTY!!!!!!

Bubbin' & Bobblin'

Custom Bukka (the hot new vinyl shit, I guess? I basically just paint whatever I'm given and don't ask questions) for the Custom Bukka show at Monkeyhouse Silverlake! This one was one of my best procrastination efforts ever-I had this thing sitting on my desk for 3 months, and managed not to touch it until a week & a half before the deadline. Score!

Couple of coats of paint to start off, so I can actually see what's going on.

I'm not so into the duckbill or the bunny tail, so covering that up. Aaand, since this makes the dude look a little dragony, let's go with that. NAR.

At this point I realize he kinda looks like the Bubble Bobble dragon dude, so going with that now. Someday, I'd like to be able to plan ahead and know what I'm making before it's finished.

But for now, I'll just work on perfecting the stream-of-consciousness custom making.

It's a little hard to see, but he's got a black eye. I guess the little dude he caught put up a good fight. Also, his nose really looks like a wang from this angle. Huh.
