- The Moon - 

"The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections."

After several months of work i can finally reveal both sides of the new Ooze Ball sculpt which should have a release in Japanese vinyl within the next few months with a few resin prototype versions sneaking their way into the NYCC as well. This is another Disarticulators project. Designed by myself and Tru:tek and inspired by the first rubber oozeball i designed and sculpted last year and also by the film Le Voyage dans la Lune. The concept itself was a collaboration between myself and Tru:tek. Several weeks of just sketches sent back and forth followed by long discussions about concept and theory took place long before any actual clay work began. Once the groundwork was in place the sculpt itself took me a few months and even that part of the process required several tweaks and a couple major reworks to meet my standards and to keep up with the demands of Tru:teks vision as well. 

The design itself should hopefully be made in two parts. We opted to avoid the standard blank plug used in many vinyl toys and instead design our own plug to allow the texture and shape of the ball to continue over the entire piece and actually leave it looking and feeling like a ball. I did place a single large crater with smooth edges on the exact bottom though so it will "stand" nicely on it's own rather then just roll around. 

To keep the whole process feeling personal i added ashes from the 1980 Mount. St. Helens eruption to the clay for a slightly rougher texture. I also added tiny flecks taken from an of actual iron nickel meteorite that was a gift from my absolute favorite person. Would have just felt wrong to make the moon without using pieces of the stars.

I have a small batch of the rabbit heads for sale that I sculpted as an unofficial add-on for the incredible Onell Armorvors. Sculpted by me and cast in UV resistant pvc by Tru:Tek. There is also a small batch cast in a much softer rubber-like pvc as well. $11 bucks US each plus shipping but supplies are very limited.

- The Atomic Uchuujin - 

"Earth people give good blood. "

The Atomic Uchuujin(japanese for space alien)is mostly based off an old monster from a long banned episode of Ultraseven. The episode in question was about vampire aliens from a radiated planet coming to earth in search of blood. Pretty much the entire show was full of wonderfully horrible themes and ideas but what actually got it banned was the fact the aliens were mistakenly called a-bomb survivors in a japanese publication. Not a good idea especially in japan during the 1960's. Since then it has been totally missing from syndication in japan and it was even left out of the official Ultraseven complete series DVD collection that released recently. Luckily it did air in hawaii and the states a few decades ago and a few kind people occasionally upload it on youtube for anyone who cares enough to look. So if you have 24 minutes to spare click below!

Working out packaging now but if you did take the time to watch the episode you'll enjoy the watch I designed with the help of Ralph Niese for coloring to go along with the figure(okay it's really a button from button-lab.com but they do such great work it really does look like a watch).

This is a pile of goo moving as though gravity were reversed with an alien hand coming out of it. It was created partly because it sounded fun and also to hold both of the ball shaped figures I've sculpted. The hand itself is mostly random alien features with a bit of the old dead hand from the original war of the worlds movie mixed in. My goal was to make something easy to mold/cast and hopefully something cool enough to make people want it even if they didn't own any of the balls. Tru:Tek did a great job with molding and casting so as always it looks so much better in rubber then it did in clay. Hopefully some people grab one just to display their favorite actual vintage Madball. It's a two piece stand so if you get more then one you can mix n' match the bases and the hands for various color combinations.
