I am very pleased to announce that I have again been shortlist nominated for a Designer Toy Award. My Ouiji Board Dunny custom is nominated for”Best Custom” this year. It is open for public voting until 26th September. Please go and vote if you like it.
I very much appreciate being recognised by my peer group in these awards. It is a validation that speak to the quality of my ideas and work. Thank you DTAs.
I have added two new pledge levels to my Patreon. One higher and one lower.
($5 a month)
Everyone at this level and above is
entered into a draw to win a “thing” from me. This thing will always have a value greater than the $5 pledge. It may be a toy, a figure, an original drawing, a print, a prototype, an original sculpt. It will change from month to month and will be shipped direct to the lucky winner’s door.
($50 a month)
An original drawing posted to your door every month.
A totally unique 6″ X 4″ (ish) original Mechtorian work of art. Made for you alone. This may be an Ink or pencil drawing. It may be a whole new character or an image of an existing character or small group of characters. I will decide as I get to them. But each one will be different, charming and original.
( N.B. Only 10 places available.)
You can click over to my Patreon Page and help support me at your choice of SIX levels of patronage.
If you are already a Patron at the $10 level you will automatically be added to the new monthly Lottery.
You can easily upgrade or downgrade your existing Pledge level should you wish.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me this far. You have been a great boon to my work. I hope you enjoy my posts.

This is fairly new UK convention for lovers of creature design and monster make-up.
It has some amazing speakers from the very top of the movie effects world including Nick Dudman who oversaw all the Harry Potter films and David Marti of DDTFX responsible for the wonders of Pan’s Labyrinth and Crimson Peak among many others.
I will be there at booth No. 13, right in the middle of the hall with my work and launching series 3 of Copper Creeps .

l hope to see you there.
Sargent Gee and his Mechanised Cannon were tasked by High Command to render all enemy bases inoperable. However on Mechtoria there are no enemies, thus no bases. So he has opted for rendering inoperable all potential hiding places for any potential enemies or terrorists..
To this end he is destroying all the trees!
