"Replica" written down the side

строителство на къщи You’ll notice I haven’t posted a lot of my replicas as of late.  Serendipitously, the gates of Warner Brothers opened wide when I recently did some work for a license holder.  Couple that with Mina Lima’s fantastic collection of prints at The Printorium (the exact files, but not the exact medium) and […]

Twits

Yes, I’m on Twitter. Guaranteed to be 100,000 times more boring than the stuff on my site.

Gifts from Danielle

I met Danielle through our mutual obsession with alethiometers.  It has been absolutely amazing to watch this young lady’s talent blossom.  This Christmas she sent me a package full of mysterious artifacts from her travels through space and time.  As a shameless plug, you should definitely check out her Etsy shop (which hopefully will be […]

I’m really excited about doing the letter for this one — lots of mispellings and scratched out words coupled with some “Go Chudley Cannons!” scribblings. I did receive pictures of the girl who […]

Blatant Plug: A Package from Mr. Potter

As seen here, I’m offering one of my custom-packaged Harry Potter wands for sale on eBay. I just finished custom packaging Hermione’s wand for a friend, and it turned out wonderfully. I promise to post pictures of it as soon as the birthday girl receives it. (These days you just can’t be too careful with […]
