Lego Inspiration

Lego

Today I had the urge to share one of my previous art projects. The reason I am doing this is because last week I had a chance to go into the LEGO store in Downtown Disney. Needless to say after my visit I came out motivated to create something with my set of LEGO’s. Many ideas came to me but the one thing I knew was that I wanted the final outcome to have an artistic aspect to it. Than I remembered creating the LEGO “Y” letter and wanting to create a letter city made of this well know toy bricks. So now hopefully by next week I should have a complete city to show everyone.

Custom TokiDoki Shoes

30 01 2013

Hello Everyone,

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Today I am showcasing my first go at customizing a pair of sneakers that were inspire by TokiDoki. These shoes are custom painted and were a birthday present for a special little princess turning three years old. My idea was to create a design fitting for a little girl, and me being a fan of TokiDoki art I decided to combined both. The design is simple all the characters are TokiDoki creations (some with little variations to original), different color stars are behind the characters, and the background is a gold color that is also use as a toe border. To finish the look I added double glitter shoelaces with a double-lacing tie. For the box I wanted to create a jewel incrusted look so I used glitter to achieve a similar reflection to when jewels sparkle in the light. I also displayed all the cool Adidas logos and create a front label giving proper credit to parties (including myself). As for the shoes used they are Adidas Superstars II (purchase plain white) size 9 infant. All said and done the project from start to finish took me a week, next shoe design I have in lineup is a hockey theme for myself.





Jack Skellington Pumpkin

Jack Skellington

Last Halloween I wanted to carve a “Jack” pumpkin. I started with the basic cutout and that would of work, but it felt it was missing something. So I added color and painted the interior black and the exterior white as you can tell by the pic. That gave him his trademark look that I was trying to achieve, and to light him up I put a simple bright green glow stick. The craftsmanship is not to top finish but since I knew it was a one night deal it was fine. That Halloween night many neighborhood kids expressed how much they liked the pumpkin, especially the little ones when they just point and say “Jack”. The only bad thing is that I have no pictures of the night shots but I am working on getting some, and as soon as get them I will put them up. Just wanted to share this home art project hopefully it inspires others to create for next Halloween.
