Lending Rex Velvet a Hand (Mechanical hand, that is)

The secret purpose of my most recent mechanical hand has been revealed! I crafted it for the use of Seattle's evil mastermind, Rex Velvet. Watch the video to see what he has done with my diabolical creation.

What have I done? WHAT HAVE I DONE??


Rex is on a quest to rid the Seattle area of self-appointed, troublesome heroes. If you haven't already, check him out and hear what he has to say: Rex Velvet's Facebook Page

Post-Apocalyptic Street Sign Armor

This armor was one of my most fun projects to date. Inspired by the wholesome goodness of post apocalypse films, medieval armor and the Fallout games, I had the privilege of working with a nice fellow who found me via Etsy to bring his ideas to life.

As you could probably guess from the pictures, the armor plates were made from a stop and a dead end sign (obtained through legal means, of course). These are affixed via arming points to a harness made from belts that features ammo loops and two straps to hold equipment. The plates were formed, in the spirit of the end of the world theme, the old fashioned way; with a ball peen hammer and an anvil.

To top it all off, the extremely tallented Jen Owen of Jen Martin Studios ( captured images of the armor at an abandoned mental institution in Washington State. This created the perfect setting and really brought everything together. Now that's what I call a road warrior!

Special thanks to Eric L. for modeling the armor!

The Evil Got into my Hand.....

This weekend I focused my energies and produced a hand plus a devious device in the space of 24 hours from start to finish. I don't want to ruin the surprise, so I'll simply say that the intended use of this hand by a certain secret associate of mine will be.... diabolical.

As with the other hands that I've produced, this one is articulated and cable controlled.

Don't ask me why, but I felt compelled to include strange, gilded designs on the finger loops. It appears that they imbued the hand with strange, useless powers.

With it I can gain the trust of tiny animals.......

And then trap them and bend them to my will. BWAHAHAAHAAAA!!!

Until they discover the substantial gaps in my design and thus escape and later mock me with their bulbous eyes. CURSE YOU TINY DOG!! WE WILL MEET AGAIN!

............. when I fill your water dish tonight.
