Shadoe Delgado's "The Sluggish Shadow Thing" custom Android for his Commission Project!

As we previously announced, sculptural customizer Shadoe Delgado has begun a Commission Project, aiming to do at least one commissioned custom each and every week for the next year. Pictured herein are the piece he created most recently: a 3-inch tall Android figure that has been sculpturally transformed into "The Sluggish Shadow Thing." A bit reminiscent of some nightmarish creature from Lovecraft's fervent imagination, Delgado took longer than normal to plan out how to approach this piece, but — now that he's done it — he has the method down and is able to make similar pieces more quickly. Those interested in becoming part of Delgado's Commission Project and commissioning an Android (or other platform) can simply place their order for the appropriate sized beast in Delgado's online shop, or you can contact the artist at ShadoeDelgado [at] gmail [dot] com to work out your commissioned piece with Delgado directly.

ATAMA Presents: "Realm" a new solo show featuring the works of RXSeven!

"Realm" is a different perspective on life and death and the brilliant dance between the two. Both life and death can depict beauty and are able to take on many forms. Most people often see death as a darker and cruel end to this life though. RXSeven has chosen to embrace this inevitable doom and show the side of beauty that it also bestows. The idea that every life contributes to the next within a cycle that ever continues moving forward. The folks over at ATAMA are stoked to be bringing together under one roof a full body of work by Texas based artist RXSeven... and based on his previous work, those attending this show are all in for a serious treat! That being said, if you are in or around the Dallas area, be sure to swing by ATAMA on Saturday, August 23rd from 7PM-9PM.

Ian Ziobrowski's custom "FP-420" Death'sHead figure... is stunning!!!

Ian Ziobrowski shares with us today his latest, and greatest, commission... the "FP-420", WOAH!!!! "In 2028, WWIII devastated planet Earth. Populations were decimated, factories stopped production, food shortages were rampant, and very few survived the slaughter. Humankind was set back thousands of years. The limited few that were left moved North or South, anywhere to escape the war madness surrounding them. Generations of families did what they could to survive. Many created small communities from the rubble of war - old factories, the remains of corporate technology, 21st century waste, etc. Today is 2420, and one small mystical hamlet, 'Nugglife', sits high above all others in the territory formerly known as the Smokey Mountains. This plush and close-knit community is one of the last green growing regions on Earth. Its leader, Nuggs, is the most infamous grower in the world and he is about to unleash his most recent creation the "FP-420". The FP-420 was created in an old gun factory responsible for the development of the miserable WWII failure, the FP-45 Liberator. With the 2 story factory fully converted based on Nugg’s mastermind schematics, this facility can yield up to 10 bushels every 65 days. Climate controlled via a two part diversion system, Nugg’s can keep the perfect temperature and humidity levels for his philanthropic operations." Talk about a backstory... but I guess a piece as EPIC as this deserves a little thought :-)

Created from a 10" tall Death'sHead figure from David Flores and Blackbok Toys, this piece has been worked from the inside out, added to, modified, crafted and painted 100% by Ian... oh, and if you turn of the lights, this bad boy is powered by a 9 volt battery, and is fitted with multiple LED's! Seriously amazing work! Can't get enough Ian??? Head on over to his website HERE and check out all his amazing work!
