DJ Shadow - Preemptive Strike Mate...


did this one for a friend of mine last week....

This records for me stands for plenty of good times and parties during my university time.
The pal I was doing this for owned the LP that time and I was always happy to feed his turntables with it...

I really enjoyed doung this as the cover design is somewhat dirty and therefore allowed me to work messey here and there...

So much fun to not care about brushlines and stuff!

(Got the vinyl myself in the meantime! ;P)

Greetings to all shadow fans out there - meet you on the dancefloors at high noon!

another design of mine has been uploaded on in order to receive your feedback -> U-Boot !

I designed this little U-Boot for a video game I was working on with some friends of mine during university. Still in love with this vehicle!

Would be great to be able to paint and collect it. What do you think?

Greetings to the uboot dev crew!!!

it has been some time since I was giving you some new stuff.
This was due to the fact that I did not spend all my nights on making toys
as well as the fact that I am currently working on some canvas pieces,
as I would like to get some stuff together for a show...

But I published a toy concept today on MoRhino

Take a look and vote for this toy in order to motivate the
PatchTogether people to produce it!

Yes we can ...

... make my Monster Mate a produtction piece!


let me introduce you to PatchTogether - a website where toy designers can uload there designs and concepts. Those are judged by the visitors of the website and winners are picked on a regular basis to make real designer toys out of it!

How cool is this, huh?

So, if you like my stuff and the little nasty Monster Mate in particular:

Visit PatchTogether, create your account (you need this anyway to vote for more of my stuff in the future) & then vote for the monster mate and leave a comment! :D

Last step to perfection would be telling your friends about it... ;P

When this ends up in a more positive feedback than for other toy concepts we might make it happen!

Cheers for your support

The tale of the half swallowed Teddy Trooper...


let me tell you about this one:

Once upon a time there was a little creature Swa
living on Mo Island that was outstanding hungry
and always swallowing everything coming along.

One day there was a Teddy Trooper passing by
enjoying the beauty of the island.

Swa was close and hungry seeing the Trooper close.

As his brain functionality estimating the size of booty
was overruled by his greed, Swa attacked the Trooper

The Trooper was too big - off course he was!

Swa got stuck on top of the Trooper.
There was no way back nor forward!

Swa started to dribble and as the Trooper was not able to
get him of either.

Since they have not been seen, but maybe they became one of
the most amazing symbiosis of our time....

Heavy Monster Mate Support Bot ...


sorry for not being in touch with you for that long. But I was quite busy!

After being attacked by some Monster Mates on Mo Island beginning of this year, I started working on a Monster Mate Support Bot in order to be able to get closer to their hideouts.
It was a quite touch project, but I was able to commit the command over the Monster Mate robot to the Golden Cyclops Mate that I was working on around Xmas last year.
The size of the cyclops and its high developed AI unit allowed me to place it in the Monster Mate Support Bot cockpit and therefore to concentrate on the pure mechanical skills of the Bot.

First tests in my laboratory proved me right: the symbiosis of the cyclops´ intelligence and the bot´s strength is amazing! It definitely takes me to the next level of excursions on Mo Island!

I forgot to takes some pictures on the Bot on Mo Island and left it behind. This is why I would like to provide you some pictures of the model I did before working on the large sized one:

For those, who can not remember, how Monster Mates look like (shame on you) - this is poison green one I hit last year

And this is it - the heavy Monster Mate Support Bot:

The gun of the model acts as switch for the 3 LEDs...

Cockpit insights...

Hope you like it! In case you like it a lot, please feel free to volunteer for having it at home! ;D

on my last trip to Mo Island I was diving into the depth north of the main island.
When I was about to go up, I relaized a group of little animals flashing in the dark...

They somehow seemed to move in a very simultaneous way...

Getting closer I realized that it not small creatures at all.
And I started to realize that I hit something much bigger...

Pimped my Fyoog...


I invested few more hours into my Fyoog today!

You need to have a close look from the front to see the change:

But on the back there is a lever:

Which can be moved from left to right - surprise surprise:

And when we switch of the sun....

I was my first time using LEDs and a soldering gun. Lessons learned: Touching the front of the gun hurts and does not make much sense...
