Toehider WARRIOR SHIELD Flying V – Finished (almost)

Over Christmas you may have seen my in progress photos of the guitar I’ve been customizing for Mike from Toehider. Well I did end up finishing it off (mostly) but I never got around to putting photos up. So here they are. It still needs all of it’s electrics re-done, and some bits were missing or were so stuffed when I pulled them out they’ll need replaced,...

Sledgehammer 44 – Super Sculpey

Well it’s my last day of holidays today. I thought I should do something creative before heading back to work, which is pretty much the most un-creative place on the planet, unless you work in a creative industry. Anyway, I recently picked up some new Super Sculpey for some parts of the Toehider WARRIOR SHIELD Guitar build so decided to work on a bust today. My subject...

Fishing for Koalas

Strange title eh? Well this is how today went down for me. You see I’m in the dying days of my Christmas holidays, so I decided that I was going to just go have a bit of a fish. I headed down to Scarborough and took up a position on some rocks. Got some gear together, tied on some tackle and had a bit of a fish. I never expect to catch anything, mostly because I think...

Toehider WARRIOR SHIELD Flying V – Work in Progress 2

It’s painting time! If you were tuning in on my first post of this project, you’ll know that I’m working on this epic WARRIOR SHIELD custom guitar build for Mike from Toehider. So I finished the bodywork I wanted to do on the guitar, which included drilling a diagonal hole for one the arrow shafts to go into and was ready to paint. I quickly sanded the...

Toehider WARRIOR SHIELD Flying V – Work in progress

OK so for a while now I’ve been sitting on an idea that I come up with probably a year or more ago to customize a guitar for Mike from Toehider. Obviously the most outrageous Toehider song is But Mostly Metal, so I decided I wanted to make an outrageous guitar to match the song. The idea I had was to make the guitar look like a battle worn shield of some epic warrior. We...

Bad or Good? A Christmas Illustration.

So it’s that time of the year again! Christmas time is upon us. You’ll see that as something different depending on a lot of different things like where you were brought up, what you believe in and whether or not you’ve grown up or you’re a kid at heart. For me it’s the end of the year, time for a break from work and to chill out. Get a couple of...

Illustration Evolution – What the FUCK?! with Marc Maron!

I’ve been listening to loads of his WTF podcast lately and have been reading a great book on the US stand up comedy scene’s history. Great book called I’m Dying Up Here. Check it out. Anyway, enjoy another illustration evolution! Share...

Illustration Evolution – Toehead and Ziltoid guitar battle

Hello there readers of my blog. I’m sure that’s a big hefty nobody these days what with how little I update it. Anyway, I posted these “Illustration Evolution” things on Twitter, but the Twitter image host shrunk them down to crazy levels so I wanted to just put them up somewhere else. Here’s the steps I took to create the Toehead vs Ziltoid...
