What/who got you into working in this field?


I was born in 1985 so as I was young a huge influence to my childhood was the original transformers cartoon, He-man, Thunder cats and GI-Joe. When I Got a little older The X-men animated series came out and I was instantly hooked. It only came on Saturday mornings so I discovered comic book stores and comic books to hold my interest in between shows. There my love of comics and Statues materialized. I bought my first statue which was a Moore sentinel series Gambit that took months to save up for. We lived in a bad area I was 70lb and looked like Harry Potter so I didn’t go out and play much. I’d stay in and draw and play with my action figures. I used artists like Jim Lee, Andy Kubert and Michael Turner to learn from and I am 100% self-taught. I was just a kid in the basement with his comic books and dream, lol.

Fast Forward to Current time.

I saw others working on and customizing statues so decided, I could do that. I started off small as I was scared to start chopping up and potentially ruining something so expensive. That quickly subsided; I showed my work and started getting commissions.  I am now currently booked almost a full year out.

I also do custom Metal work, claws, swords, etc. This has become a secondary commission platform. However I handle my commissions differently from most and also will not work with everyone. The time I have to work on these projects is quite limited considering the nature of my actual career so I do pick and choose the people and projects I take on. It’s been fun and I see improvements with each piece so far. Therefore I believe everything is going well  I think is been 3-4 years since I first started statue work, So there is still a lot to learn which is the part I most I look forward to.

Where would people have seen your work?

I started out on StatueForum, then made a YouTube channel and later made a Facebook page. I’ve worked for a few different license holding companies. Notable recently I won XM studios Design a statue contest for She Hulk.

I designed a few other pieces I can’t really discuss at the moment and am currently working on 2 paint masters/prototypes among the wait list of other commissions. I also have a FaceBook group geared towards other painters and customizers. If you go there please read the pinned post, it’s kind of the mission statement. Link Below



What is your favorite piece you have worked on?

This changes a lot but currently did a complete overhaul of the SS Red Sonja PF, including lots of mixed media and metal work all scratch built which was a challenge and very fun. It also showcases sewing, tailoring, fabrication as well as a style of painting I hadn’t done before. I like being able to do whatever a job calls for. Mixed media options and being versatile style wise I think is my best attribute.

What is the piece that someone else has created that you wish was yours?

The Gambit Premium Format by Sideshow Collectibles, he’s my favorite character of all time and is my favorite statue.

What is your dream piece to be made?

I’d love to have any involvement with a licensed Gambit piece, I came very close once and it’s still on my bucket list.

Ok tough one here.. Who would win in a fight to the death He-man or Lion-o?

I’d give it to Lion-O, because he has an inside man. Also battlecat has to got to be lion-o’s 3rd cousin twice removed or something.
