If you are heading to New York Comic Con pop on over to the TENACIOUS TOYS booth #3121 and grab a raffle ticket for your chance to bag a one off custom sculpt by me (Rich of UME toys) plus an original signed piece of artwork.

Not only will you be in for a chance of winning Bassett D Kay but also all the money raised will go to Susan G Komen – cancer research charity.

I’ll be at the booth on 3pm Saturday 13th for signing, drop by and say hello, don’t forget your sketch pad if you fancy a scribble in it from me.

If you don’t manage to catch me on Saturday I’ll be with the awesome chaps at BIG KEV’S GEEK STUFF booth #3261 along with the talented Argonauts Resins and Jelly Empire with lot’s of cool items.

See you there.

Mary Poppins umbrella

Well here is the completed Mary Poppins fan art sculpt for Mrs UME. It needs a bit more sanding but my hands are freezing so that isn't going to happen tonight.

One thing that I will tweak is the length of the handle - an extra inch or so to help when the final is mounted.

Looking forward to casting a couple of these up for her in resin and making them up.

I'm always being told that I never make anything for the family, so as its Mrs UME's birthday coming up I thought I'd get in her good book. I'm making a Mary Poppins umbrella parrot head :-) I've already cut down the brolly and it's full steam ahead. Once I've nailed the sculpt I'll make a mould so I can make her 2 resin versions, one classic and another either a zombie or crow :-) I will post up WIP as I go.

Gentleman Tuttz

As well as the toy making I must admit I do love to scribble :-D I don't get to do it as much as I would like these days. So the other night I took a couple of hours out to dust of the sketch book and get some lines down - this chap was for @argonautresins
