In my last blog post I wrote that I’ll be in the Showcase section of the Japanese design issue, Computer Arts Projects issue #145! I finally was able to locate a copy and it came out great; this issue is excellent, full of awesome articles and tutorials – go grab a copy if you get a chance! Check out a larger image of my section on my Flickr!
I know it’s been some time since I last updated; my baby daughter takes up a lot of my time for now, trying to get things sorted! Anyway, wanted to share some news – have any of you ever read Computer Arts or Computer Arts Projects? Well they are great magazines published in the UK on the computer arts scene and I consider them the cream of the computer arts magazines (not saying others are not good, but I’ve been reading Computer Arts/Projects for years). I’m happy to report that I’m in the Showcase section of the Japanese design issue, Computer Arts Projects issue #145! It was released in the UK back on December 30, but in the US, should be released at bookstores on January 30! So for those that seen it before, grab a copy and look me up! They showcased a few of my custom vinyl toys, from my “Koi” dunny to my “Elite Division Warriors” Mad*Ls! And on the CD-ROM, they’ve included some of my other art works; go check it out!
Oh and by the way, I don’t have an actual copy yet, so for those that do find one, especially in NYC, let me know where I can grab one! And let me know how the article turned out!!
