RE-MOLED Custom Toy Show!

Hello there!

So I’m organising a custom toy show. I know, I didn’t see this coming either. But 6 weeks after deciding to do it, there are 45 artists onboard we have a venue, and a poster! Hey, look at the poster:

It will be at Loading Bar (London’s insanely awesome video game bar) on the 6th of December 2014. With Customs and 2D prints available online the next day: 10am GMT 7th of Dec at www.kerrydyer.bigcartel.com

I’ll be posting work in progress images from the artists to Instagram and Tumblr, and be posting updates on the show periodically here too.

If you’d like to be notified the second the Customs are available  online you can join the mailing list.

So if you’re in London on the 6th of december, and hell even if you weren’t planning to be, you should stop by for fun, art, Moles and cake!

ToyConUK 2013!

ToyConUK is over! Long live ToyConUK! (2014)

And so went my first ever convention as an exhibitor. It was fun, terrifying and exciting. And once I came to terms with the idea that the convention goers weren’t going to eat me alive, I had some great conversations and enjoyed the customisiation panel I was on.

Also my online shop is now live! you can get there via the page at the top or by clicking on any of these images.

I launched this series of resin figures called ‘The Q’ at ToyCon along with my first set of ‘Taming of the Brew’ customs and lots of other bits and pieces now available over at the shop.

I have a new mailing list as well, to keep people informed about new toys, events and shows that I’m doing. And maybe the odd discount code too. You can sign up to the mailing list here.

So now for the mountains of pics I always post. First of all, here’s my stand which I shared with the lovely Okkle and a few of the pieces I had on other stands.

I’ll be finishing and painting this guy sometime over the next month and will be on sale online soon.

And finally some of the other stands at the con. I didn’t have time to get around all of them, but here are some of my favourites.

A Merry Penguin Christmas and a Steampunk New Year!

Ok, so its not Christmas anymore. Not even close. But here follow some pics of a couple of things I made for Christmas.

So lets pretend.

Firstly I’m gonna point out the new section up there for Resin and Vinyl figures. Look, up there, no, ON the screen. Yep that’s the one. I’ll be posting pics of the resin and vinyl figures I’ve customised and sculpted in that section and eventually I’ll get an online shop sorted. Till then feel free to e-mail be about commissions.

Next up, this penguin model a guy commissioned me to make for his girlfriend. It’s based on a running in-joke between the couple and their friends that I’m not going to explain. But I hear it went down pretty well on Christmas day.

And lastly a Steampunk gun I made for my Dad (specifically requested by my Dad). I like Steampunk, but outside of that one time at a comic convention and fancy dress this is my first artistic foray into Steampunk. I modified an existing toy gun, but I wanted it to feel weighty and real and cold to the touch the way metal should be, so the toy was made from white metal and most of the parts I used were brass, steel and some glass.

I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out, and my dad seemed quite chuffed. I’m sure it won’t be my last attempt at Steampunk. Maybe next time something a bit bulkier. Like a hand cannon?

Anyway, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!!

Aardman Show & Tell

So a couple of weeks back I was driving to Bristol to see some friends and pick up all my casting resin and old moulds. Checking my e-mail the night before I realised that the deadline for the Aardman Show and tell event was the next day. I sent off a hasty e-mail and gathered together the only models I currently have in my possession and set off for Bristol! By all accounts the opening night was a success, and I finally managed to go along last weekend and take a few photo’s of some the awesome work there.

These ones you might recognise, so moving swiftly on!
