Titled: Love is but a moment shared.
We had a BBQ at one of Brisbane’s go-to spots and I just so happened to have a couple toys with me (and its rather uncanny as to how close they resemble me and my little lady )
Nikon Australia liked it so much they made it the cover photo across their social media outlets for the week of Valentine’s Day (:
A quick piece I whipped up for a friend’s birthday gift. Figure is actually only 4.5cm tall so it was rather fidgety, need to get pointers of some Warhammer geeks
Brush work with acrylic and enamel paints.
So where was I the last couple weeks? Why, getting head spins from paint and glue fumes of course!
Some of you may know I also moonlight under the Saru Venom/James Saru monikers for my creative projects, in this case it was for the Laced Munny customising competition held in conjunction annually with the Kidrobot Dunny release. With top notch entries in previous years I really had my work cut out for me, not to mention one of the biggest hurdles of just getting it started (unlike previous years!). So I decided to go all out and create the Diodon Battle Droid based loosely on Robotech Mech Warriors and incorporating some freshly learned painting techniques thanks to a resurging love for model kit building. Also threw some LED’s at it for good measure
The competition itself had really taken off this year with 39 entries from some talented artists but the hard work paid off as I took home 1st place in the competition!
Special thanks to Laced and their sponsors for hosting another great event, now how to follow it up next year??
Check the spec sheet for build information and the detailed photos below.
It had been a good 10 years or more since I last pitched a tent (oh grow up :p ) but the call of the wild and associated tech gear finally took its hold so an excursion to the scenic Lake Cootharaba town of Boreen Point was on the cards. Thundery storms were predicted for the whole weekend but as luck would have it, we only got a shower around 5am the second morning, though that was enough to ruin any chance of snapping some sunrise shots. Never the less, fun was had on the beach and lake and with a couple of my inanimate friends

Hope you’ve all been good or at least good at it Santa will no doubt be rockin the Gortex tonight, hopefully the pressies don’t get too damp!
Here’s a couple quick photos from us with a couple of our Xmas friends up to mischief!
