Hey whats up guys, so for the new year I decided to manage my blog a bit. I decided to start from scratch for 2009, this blog will be for sketches and concept art. If you are interested in staying up to date on all my toy releases, gallery shows and kaNO kid related inquiries please follow the kaNO kid blog. for now lets get the sketches on a roll.

This is a sketch I did for a collabo show I did titled Street Tribe starring Jesse Hernandez and myself. Originally we where suppose to collaborate on paintings, however it ended up being easier said than done since he is in San Fran and I am in NY. Anyway with his permission I was able to design this piece using my style and some of his tribal trademark designs. I think the styles merged nicely.
Next up is another concept I did for one of my toy signings, this features my recent vinyl figure titled Bodega. Designer vinyl toys aren't meant to do much in the action department, so I wanted to take the opportunity to promote the figure as animated as possible.
This last piece was for kicks, those of you who known my work for a while know I've always played around with the concept of having my characters posed out in the form of letters. Anyway here is a fun little concept I knocked out before I passed out LOL.
