My Jibibut Customs for We Heart Wood

Here is my collection of Jibibut customs for Noferin's show We Heart Wood. I enjoyed making these. Working with wood is so much better than vinyl. Its so much easier to sand, cut and chew on. Plus wood makes the colors pop a bit more, in my opinion. If you are in LA check the show out first hand at Munky King and if you are stuck in the midwest like I am be sure to enjoy the show online. I am sure there will be plenty of coverage given the amazing lineup of Artist in this show.

Transforming a Jibibut to Kokeshi. We Heart Wood, Jibibuts Custom show

Noferin has a wonderful new line of wooden toys called Jibibuts. They have asked a handful of their favorite Artists' to customize these fantastic little toys. I was delighted to part of the show. Here are some work in progress images of my latest Jibibut custom.

April 8, 2010, We Heart Wood, Noferin Jibibuts Show @ Munky King, Los Angeles, CA

I started with a cute little Jibibut and a Kokeshi Base. These Jibibuts are way to nice to sand and paint over But I must do as Noferin asks.

Cutting the Kokeshi base.

Merging the two pieces and sanding.

After several coats of gesso the drawing begins.

Painting in the drawing. My favorite part.

After several hours of painting away here is the final product.
