Chill out. It’s not Gwyneths head. It’s just gold coins and fire flowers.Trying to get out of the habit of posting unfinished work but I made me some power up boxes straight from the pixels of my favorite ‘Super Mario Brothers’ games and I had to put ‘em up. These are all life-size hand-made replicas made to hang on your wall and store your coins and raccoon leaves and shit. Or if your just a normal boring person and not a shroom popping, dimension hopping plumber, I’m sure you could put books or clothes in ‘em. something boring like an actual potted plant instead of a bitchin fire flower, but whatever. Anyway, this is just more of the stuff I’ll be putting on Etsy.
If you’re like me, you love stuff and things. Toys, books, little electronic knick knacks that serve no purpose other than to light up, make noise and slowly make you regret ever purchasing the thing in the first place. Shit like that. You know what sucks about having a fondness for stuff and things? Not having a place to put your stuff and things. In New York you don’t get a lot of room for bookshelves and night stands. So I find that floating-shelves make great space saving places to put your shit, Wouldn’t it be straight bitchin if that very shelf was actually more stuff and things!? Enter my new Jankins Floating Mouth Shelf™. One of the first pieces selling on my upcoming Etsy store. I can get you one before that if ya want though.
So it’s been a minute yeah? I’ve been moving around a lot over the past six months but now that I finally have a permanent home for all of my creations and projects I can catch up on a bunch of old stuff. Forgive me though, my scanner was destroyed during the move so it may be a second before I can post like woah. Yeah, I said it.
So the goodies kinda have a cool pad. Kevin, who acts as the leader, brains and resident inventor of the ‘Toy Mech‘ protagonist, has built a cozy mobile home for his motley crew. The Mongo-1 will have awesome interior design inspired by the cut away’s of my boy Wes Anderson.(Think the train in Darjeeling limited or Steve Zissou and his yellow submarine) If your nice, maybe I’ll show ya some of the sketches of Mongos guts. Mongo-1, another fun piece to make.
Happy Monday! Grab the kids, this is a post for the family. No, really, this is Pretty Pants Pete. He’s one of the more darker characters from ‘Toy Mech‘. He was extremely fun to make and I’m very pleased with how he came out. He won’t be appearing in Toy Mech for a while so I thought that I’d give him a little photo shoot. Enjoy!
Pretty Pants Pete was intended for the world of F-bomb and Gnosis the Cat. He fits in better in the Toy Mech setting but he’ll still appear in those other titles.
Little pig is one of the main protagonist, I just didn’t make her when I took that shot of Beans and co. Anyway, Pig is cool. She has one eye. She’s not cool because she has one eye. She’s just cool. Although her missing eye is pretty cool too. It pops up throughout the story.
Another lost part of the mega mech ” Fugazer-Z“. Lally is a sentient left giant robot hand and he’s the resident bully in the world of “Toy Mech“. Not so much a villian as he is just an asshole. I borrowed the motion design for Lally from John K.‘s “New Adventures of Mighty Mouse” villian ‘The Glove‘. Lally is indeed a giant hand but since becoming sentient, he now walks and talks like a person. But his body motion shifts constantly between being a hand and walking on two fingers human style. Enough talk, here’s some shots my sweet babies. Enjoy, Lally was fun too make.
Nanotechnology plays a big part in the “Toy Mech” world. This is Planck, a nanite. A nanite in this story is a cluster of sentient Nanoids that is liberated from its original main frame and given free will. Planck is kinda of a cross between “T-1000” and “Jamie Madrox the multiple Man“. I can’t say too much about Planck because he is one of the major players in the progression of the main story. He’s funny, I can say that much.
