Interview on Co Art Mag and Happy New Years!

I just had the honors of doing an interview with Nick Curtis of Co Art Mag over the Christmas break. It brought back many memories of my past and also of old projects I worked on.

Thank you very much Nick! You really did your homework on this interview and I am grateful.

Here is the link to the interview, I hope you enjoy it. :)

Also, wishing everyone and their family a wonderful 2019. May this year be filled with much happiness, laughter and good health.

I wanted to express my thank you to all the collectors who have supported my projects in 2018. It was my first year self producing my sculptures and it has been a great learning experience. I have added some very important people to my team. Kaelin Sheaves from Calgary and Cyberlich from Sherwood Park who have helped me tremendously with bringing my projects to life. Each project takes many months of hard work and I hope collectors appreciate the love and care that goes into each sculpture.

Just a quick update on the Bao Bao Bennys. They are almost finished and should be ready to be shipped later this month. Here is a little update picture of the bottom. It is the double happiness symbol. I wanted to share that positive energy to my collectors and hope Bao Bao Bennys can bring more joy and happiness to their lives.

Mighty Mo the Frog Prince

After many revisions to the original concept, we have since renamed him Mighty Mo the Frog Prince. He stands 5 inches tall and hopefully will go into production later this year with the hope of release early next year. This will be another Okedoki Studio production. Hope you like Mighty Mo the Frog Prince thus far.

More updates to come as we move into the moulding and casting stages. :)

Balloon Head Released

Thank you all for supporting the release of Balloon Heads. All 16 were quickly sold out as I posted them on Instagram. I am truly grateful for all the wonderful collectors who enjoy my art and will be adding this very personal piece to their collection. The remaining 2 sets were sent to a show in the UK.

Balloon Head is a fully produced art multiple by the Okedoki production team. There is an Edition of 18. It comes with a certificate of authenticity and are each signed and numbered. Each set takes many hours from start to finish and is carefully handmade. I hope all who will receive a set will feel the labours of love and attention poured into each set. This is the Hope Edition as I feel we all need more hope in our lives right now. Hope to stay positive and hope to stay patient. 

There will be more production pieces to come and we are all very excited to bring these projects into reality. Thank you again for all your support.
