AW177 x SoSo Happy x Toy2R Custom MonQ – Mar10

On 06, Mar 2012 | No Comments | In Artwork, Client, Customs, Toy2R | By aw177

I was one of the lucky artists invited to customize an 8″ DIY Toy2R Qee in the fashion of the SoSo Happy (http://sosohappyonline.com) theme using my style/look.

The SoSo Happy folks will take the customized Qees on tour to different locations/conventions for display. There is also the potential opportunity to have some of these Qees made into production.

AW177 “Dragon vs Tiger” Custom 16″ Toy2R Qee & “Circuit Death” T-Shirts for NYCC 2011

On 13, Oct 2011 | No Comments | In Artwork, NYCC, Shows, Toy2R | By aw177

Benny of Tenacious Toys (http://www.tenacioustoys.com) was kind enough to give me a 16″ Toy2R Bear Qee to customize. This is my first time working on any platform larger than 8″, so this took a very long time and many many hours were put into it. I’m exhausted!!!

I wanted to combine into one toy the dragon vs. tiger theme, so I created the elements in radiant gold outlines and tried to keep it very simple. The Chinese characters say dragon vs. tiger and the ones by the leg says good luck. Also dragon vs. tiger can be represented by the yin and yang.

“Power of the Tiger” & “Dragon vs. Tiger” Custom Mini Qees at NYCC Toy2R/Tenacious Toys Booth #876!

On 04, Oct 2011 | No Comments | In Artwork, NYCC, Shows, Toy2R | By aw177

Benny of Tenacious Toys (http://www.tenacioustoys.com) was kind enough to give me 3 Toy2R mini Qees to customize. Taking the Toy2R Monkey Qee to work on, I created a new Chinese tiger on the front and the words Power/Strength on the back. It has a monotone paint scheme of black, white and grey, but with a touch of bright red in it. I also coated it in a matte varnish, when I usually do all my custom toys in a gloss varnish.

“Dragon vs. Tiger” forms when you combine the “Rise of the Dragon” and “Power of the Tiger” mini Qees together!

Both will be on display/sale at New York Comic Con at the Toy2R/Tenacious Toys booth #876!

AW177 + Tenacious Toys “Rise of the Dragon” Custom 5″ Toy2R Mini Qee

On 31, Jul 2011 | No Comments | In Artwork, Toy2R | By aw177

Hey all!

Benny of Tenacious Toys (http://www.tenacioustoys.com) was kind enough to give me 3 Toy2R mini Qees to customize. Taking the iconic Toy2R Bear Qee to work on first, I created a new Chinese dragon on the front and the words Good Luck on the back. It has a monotone paint scheme of black, white and grey, but with a touch of bright red in it. I also coated it in a matte varnish, when I usually do all my custom toys in a gloss varnish.

I wanted to step away from my usual style of brightly colored, ‘all over’ complex designs and just step back and do something a bit simpler.

Some more pics can be viewed at my Flickr site: AW177 Flickr

This will be sold on the Tenacious Toys website at AW177 Rise of the Dragon so if you’re interested in purchasing it, go over there! Thanks all!
