Key Chain – Goku (Dragon Ball Z)

Hello All,

This hit children’s TV series is the reason why some kids know what kamehameha is used for, blasting your enemy of course. What else would you use it for?  I love the way how this key chain turn out, all the colors came together very nicely right down to the one star dragon ball. I also added a clip hook so can attach it to any necklace.

Key Chain – Sebastian (Black Butler)

Hello,

Ever get those days you want a little sinister in your tea or coffee? Well then Sebastian from Black Butler can fix that itch. This key chain is a little homage to my new favorite anime that screams sinister with an 1800 century twist. It’s decorated with a feather that has been hand crafter on both sides and curved to give it a more natural look. I added a clip hook so if I wanted I can take it off the key chain and attach it to any necklace. We must not forget his black heart that bling so nicely on the most ominous of days.

  • Fashion Caps (Bottle Caps) 24 to a pack
  • Silver Plated Chain 1 foot

  • Key chain rings 15 to a pack,

Key Chain – Toru Handa (Fruits Basket)

Well since I am no longer a torched soul (well most days) my hands can work on happier and brighter things. Such as this Fruits Basket key chain.

Just to give a little history in the making of this key chain and what made me choose Toru Honda as my piece to create. Fruits Basket is a Japanese anime (animation cartoon) and manga (Comic) it’s one of those stories that make you want to do be a better person when life gets hard. Toru Honda is a young girl who has lost her mother and then her home, so far not sounding like a very happy story. However not once does she give in to the woes of the world, but has a pretty upbeat audited about it. While living in a tent she is found out by the neighboring residents (The Soma Family) who take her in, which she comes to find they are not so normal themselves. It’s funny, crazy, and an all-around amazing story.

Materials:

  • Fashion Caps (Bottle Caps) 24 to a pack
  • Silver Plated Chain 1 foot
  • White and Black Sculpey Clay 2oz
  • Key chain rings 15 to a pack,
  • Pink, Black and White Paint
  • Glitter glue
  • Plastic
  • Pop Dot
  • Glossy Accents

Doing Amazing When Your Worst For Wear

Hello All,

Well it has been a while since I have posted, moving and family tends to slow down on the creative aspect of blogging. However that doesn’t hinder creating itself, in fact I find myself creating more when I am under a lot of pressure. Much like musician play beautifully when life gets hard, or how painters make wonderful art when they are on their last dollar and haven’t eaten in a few days. I myself make better even phenomenal art when I am miserable then when life is good.

For example this drawings here, (left) I was working two jobs and going to school. Did I also mention I was living with my mother and four sisters in a tiny little apartment? This drawing is called Cruelty. (Right) The Grave Digger that looks like a creature made of skin and bones I was working nights at a security company in Sunnyvale California, funny enough I was originally hired as an Administrative Assistant before my boss said sorry you need to be a dispatcher or your fired. Since I didn’t have any other work line up and I finally moved out of my mother home and couldn’t afford to get fired. Being a dispatcher is not a job I really want to do ever again. Not because the work was demining but because I was just not very good at it.
