I can't look at a fortune cookie without thinking about Freaky Friday, even if it's for a half a second. Fun Fact: I've saved every fortune that I've gotten for the past 7(? ) years, and they're all in an old milk jug on my desk! Mini Chopsticks available through the link in my bio! What's your most memorable fortune cookie experience? Ironic timing fortune? Absolutely ridiculous saying? No fortune at all? Wisdom that you needed to hear? Your friend eats the fortune with the cookie so it comes true? I've seen it all! 🥠🥢🥠🥢🥠

On the topic of Ed, Edd n' Eddy from yesterday, as I may not have any more Jawbreakers available, I do however have tons and tons of these Plank Keychains available on my Etsy Shop! You can pick one up through the link in my bio if you'd like! Or not. But it'd be really cool if you did! Awesome, thanks! 😊😊😊
Ed, Edd n' Eddy bbbllrrrrlrrrrrr yeaaaauuh!! Creating the packings for this Jawbreaker was probably one of my favorites I've done so far. Instead of the classic plastic bubble on a backing, or a bag with a label..this one was a bit different, and it's always stood out to me because of that! I couldn't tell you how badly I wanted one of those jawbreakers from the candy shop or Kevin's garage as a kid, and I'd still kill for one to this day! They looked so good! Bigger than your whole head?! Are you kidding me?! How big is the world's biggest jawbreaker? Because I want one!!! Anyway, Ed, Edd n' Eddy is so freaking great, I highly recommend going back and rewatching a few episodes or a couple dozen! 🔵🟡⚪🔴
Stacks on Stacks on Stacks! I don't know if it's just because Halloween is right around the corner, but people have been really interested in these "Handbook for the Recently Deceased" keychains as of late! You can grab one on my Etsy Shop if you're interested yourself! I'll be introducing some more Halloween themed books come next month! Be prepared to get scared! 💀👻📕🏚️
Let me introduce you to Isak. The year is 2015. December 31st to be exact. New Years Eve. We had a piñata to smash open with our friends, that Tash and I filled with an assortment of candy and whatever random gag items we could find. Midnight came and we smashed the piñata open. The head completely survived. It was a sign. We needed to keep it. So I took it home. A few days later while at Goodwill Tasha and I found this plaque/mount piece of wood. We knew what needed to be done with the piñata head. On the backside of the piece of wood, someone had written then name "Isak" so from that moment forward he became Isak the piñata. We stained the wood and made him a name plate, mounted the head and haven't looked back since. Every day when I walk up the stairs into our home Isak is waiting at the very top. He's magnificent. He's hilarious. He's Isak! 💚🧡💙💛

On the topic of robots who's only purpose is to sling food, with Neptr yesterday, today I give you, the Butter Robot from Rick and Morty! I started this piece by taking the lens from an old camera that I found at a thrift store, and gradually built everything up around that, to the size that I saw fit. And thus, the Butter Robot was given life! Who's your favorite robot? Drop your picks down in the comments! 👇🏻🤖👇🏻 🧈🧈🧈

My wife asked me if Chevy Chase's full name is "Chevrolet Chase" and now I can't think about anything else. Picture unrelated. @chevychase ?
My mini next to the real living breathing (well not breathing, it's a house ) home that it was based off of! Zoom in! Take a look around! You may only be able to see a portion of this house in comparison to the miniature version, but when you compare the tiny to the large, you can really see the same details!! They're all there! I spent hours upon hours looking at pictures of this house, I've never been there, but it feels as though I've lived there my whole life.
Back in 2017 was the first time I attempted making anything with brick work. This incredible home was such a unique one to work on, especially earlier on in my mini making career. I hope to do more pieces like this in the future. The mixture of outdoors, nature and man made structures is really something incredible. Someone let me make your cool house!! I'm itching for for..for...I couldn't think of something that rhymed with itching!
The grass surrounding this bathroom actually makes it look like it would smell a little less gross and more like the outdoors..but sadly..that just isn't the case. It still reeks. 🌲🚽🌲 📸 @fixedformat
I like to hold tiny bathrooms in the woods and just laugh about it. Thanks @fixedformat for capturing my essence. 📸🌲🚽
Art meets Nature. There's something about creating artwork with your own hands, especially something nasty and man made like a bathroom, and putting it back into nature. The contrast is simply beautiful. And the professional shots by @fixedformat might help a bit as well! 📸🌲🚽
Woowee! What a week it's been! I work most days of the year, and seldomly take a real vacation away from art making. The last time I took a week off was for my honeymoon 2 years ago, so it was really nice to just kick back and relax this past week for Tasha and I's Anniversary! We stayed in a cabin in what felt like the middle of nowhere. No electricity, no running water, it was absolutely fantastic. It was also completely horrifying I might add! It was extra eerie at night, especially because there was a giant cross ontop a hill directly across from the campfire pit about 4 feet away, extra ominous at night. The cabin had an incredible view of a tiny pond you could see from the porch though, it was beautiful in the morning and during a peaceful rain! All in all, it was a great week of not being focused on anything but relaxing and each other! But I'm also happy to be back to work now, getting Etsy orders done and working on some top secret projects, as well as getting prepared for an extra spooky Halloween this year! I'll be getting back to all of the messages I've gotten over the next day or two! Expect some more throwback posts as well as some new shots of older works as I get caught up and get current things done! As well, thank you all for the Happy Anniversary wishes on my last post, it means the world to me and Tash! Alright, I think that's all for the updates for now! Thanks for having me back guys! Awesome, thanks! 🌲👍🏻
Howdy y'all! My wife, Tasha, and I are taking a little time away for a couple of days to celebrate our 2nd Wedding Anniversary! We are leaving in a few short minutes and I won't be back until around the end of the week possibly, so if you don't hear back from me on messages, orders and updates, that's why! Everything will be on pause. I try to keep personal things..personal..on here, but I must say that marrying this girl is the best decision I've ever made, and I surely wouldn't be here creating art if it weren't for her constant support driving me to be able to do this! She's the most wonderful person you could ever meet and I love her with all my heart. Now, time for our peaceful getaway in the woods. See you all soon! ❤️🖤❤️
"The Alley Way" - 2016 Up close and personal.
annual cul de sac back to school ice cream social (with extra hand sanitizer this year ). I’m still 100% in denial that Eden is going to kindergarten in 3 days. I’m going to miss her sweet little spirit so much 💔. Even after she informed me tonight that “I can see your butt wiggling mama!” #awesomethanks

Whelp, I didn't think it could be done...but once again @tamatukalata has created a masterpiece! She's blown my socks off with the amount of skill and detail she's put into encapsulating all of my greatest moments here on Instagram! (And between you and me, I'm not even wearing socks ) From the recent Clown Wig version of me that she designed, all the way back to me wearing the Tree T-shirt from the mini that really started it all, the Silkscreen Press. Alongside are other forms of greatness, like Louise Ears me and my vintage Batman Mask! The Ed, Edd n' Eddy version of myself designed by the ever so talented @toastedcircles and even me dressed as Fred from Scooby Doo! Hmm, what else, oh, just me covered in bubble wrap from when I was trapped inside a big wooden box, which just so happens to be the picture on my business card! Swipe to see the original photos she took inspiration for this from and make sure to go give her a follow and major love for all the hard work put into this! Stickers coming soon! 🖤🖤🖤
"Behind the Photo" - 2016 I came up with the idea for this miniature scene inside of a camera as a gift for my friend @fixedformat Photography, Skateboarding and living by the mountains are his bread and butter, and I wanted to find the best way to combine all of those world's into one. This was something that I thought about making into a series way back when, but only ever made two. The second scene was a dark room inside of a camera. (Very Meta, I know ) I really loved the idea of this series because it was like putting a new twist on taking a picture. Instead of a Polaroid or a Disposable Camera photo, you had a physical 3D snapshot of a moment in time. I think that's what a lot of my work is about, capturing a moment. I'd love to bring this series back for anyone that's interested! You can even DM if you'd like a custom scene made! Awesome, thanks! 📷🛹⛰️
No "O", just leg It's everything that you loved about Legos before, now just without the "O"! Get your Leg today! Link in bio for purchase! 🦵🦵🦵
Legos are truly what fueled my journey into miniature making. Growing up I loved Legos. I mean, who didn't? You could make literally anything out of them. And as I got older I started enjoying the more complex sets that you could buy, of cities and scenes..and that lead me down the road of wanting to try my hand at creating me own Lego set from scratch. The basement from That 70's Show, which that being my favorite show should come to no surprise now. Painting Legos to be the exact colors I needed them to be for the walls, couch, steps, appliances and things of the like, as well as designing my own Lego versions of the characters from the show! After I had it finished it made me realize that I could now build my own scenes out of pretty much anything, and not just Legos! Which in return led me to creating the mini T-shirt Shop for my bosses as a Christmas gift! But you all heard that story a few weeks back now! All in all, Legos played an extremely important hand in getting to wear I am now. They allowed me to be free and build whatever I desired, with the base of their products. So Legos will always have a deep love in my heart! Here's a photo of me at Legoland at the Mall of America last summer! Bleached Blonde hair and all. Thanks Lego! 👍
This is a simple yes or no question, and feel free to say yes or no. Either a yes or a no will do just fine, as long as it's one or the other. But should I start photocopying every single piece of art that I make like this? And please say yes. 🖐🏻🥢 Tiny Chopsticks, available through the link in my bio!
Another itty bitty brick wall I thought I should share! This one was along the same lines, size and style as the pizza one I shared the other day, so it only made sense! The ad featured on the wall of this piece was actually a really cool Mountain Dew skateboarding ad that I thought was really neat and needed to find its way into a wall of mine at some point, and would you look at that, it did! 🛹⛰️🧱🧴
*Sppfffffft* that's the best way that I think I could describe the sound of a Spray Paint Can in action! Minus the "dctc dctc dctc* of the ball rattling around inside. Guess what? Since this photo was taken, I've updated the look of my Miniature Spray Paint Cans! They're a teeny bit bigger, more proportional and I've even added the little jingle jangle of the ball moving around inside the cans! And guess what else?! This is even better than that!! THEY'RE AVAILABLE FOR SALE ON MY ETSY SHOP!! That's right! If you click on the LINK in my BIO you could grab one of these little rattling paint suckers for yourself and your friends and your grandma too!! 🛒🧴👵
There was a point in time where I was on a huge little graffiti kick a few years back. I've always liked doing a bit of the dirt and grime, but there was a moment where I did a ton of graffitied brick walls, I guess you could call it a phase! I've been working on lots of commissioned work as of late, so I haven't been able to share a ton of new things, as to why you're seeing a lot of throwback works of mine in the recent weeks! But, I've really been enjoying the trip down memory lane, seeing some of my past art and really taking a look at it and how I've grown as a person and artist since then, and I hope that you all have been enjoying it too! Question, if you only had one chance to spray paint something on a wall, what would you graffiti, what would you tag? 🍕🧱🧴
Alright, after some light digging I was able to find the original video that I took of this teeny "Campfire in Your Pocket"! Apparently just a few short years ago phone camera quality was absolutely terrible, especially on video. This had to have been filmed on an iPhone, so I guess things have gotten an update since then. Anywho, enjoy this functional little campfire that you can carry around in your pocket and pull out at any given time you feel like being cozied up and want to tell some campfire stories! You could...try..to roast a marshmallow over it, but it might not go so well. I hope to make these into something I could have available for you guys in the future! A few modifications and adjustments, and it'd be totally possible! If you want one, say I! 🖐️🔥🏕️🌌🌲
Just to showcase to y'all that I'm a campfire nut, here's a few random photos taken of me with my lovely fire friends. Tending to the campfire is sort of my thing. When all of my friends/family and I get together, I'm the one tending to the fire all night long. A wee bit of old newspaper, some kindling and some phat logs right on top, it'll do the trick every time! A match, a lighter or even a blow torch like in the first photo, I'll get it roaring. Most people like to relax next to a campfire, I like to walk around, talk to everyone and keep these suckers going! I'm basically laying in the fire pit all night long like in the last photo. 🔥🏕️🌌🌲

Yet another instance from back in 2017 when I was on a Gravity Falls making kick. I made these two Water Towers from the show, showcasing the front and back sides of them in this photo. Waterfalls are so much fun to make. I've had the That 70's Show Water Tower on my mini making list for about 4 years now, maybe that'll become a reality. But I'd like to do it bigger, much much bigger. Like at least 10 times this size. AT LEAST. What other sort of fun Water Towers could I make, from shows, movies, cartoons, games, anything of the like!?🧁💥
A lot of people's goals for the new year is to lose weight, stay in shape and continually eat healthy. So here's just a little reminder to stick with that and to not give up! 🏋🏻♂️ This set of mini gym equipment was made for the totally rad and totally mad @madhouseminis alongside another set of the same (in black ), a treadmill, and a punching bag! She has been going to craft shows all about, displaying miniatures for sale inside of her dollhouse built into a freaking tree! It's comparable to the coolest fort you could have wanted as a kid..but miniature! #Miniatures #Mini #Art #Artist #Artwork #Gym #Dollhouse #Fort #TreeFort #AwesomeThanks #GymEquipment #GymRoutine #Workout #Healthy #Exercise #Motivation #NewYearGoals #2020Goals #NewYearsResolution #CraftShow #ArtShow #WorkoutMotivation #EatHealthy #BenchPress #Weights #Fitness #Red

2 years ago today I created the first Plank Keychain I ever made. He was stained brown, made of a very thin piece of wood, and roughly painted. Over the last 2 years, he has evolved a ton. For a long time I still kept the keychains that natural wood looking color, but I updated, got better more quality wood, focused more on the painting of the eyes and mouth, and gave him life! Eventually I decided it was time to evolve him into his actual element. I gave him the same color scheme and style as he was in the cartoon, and really payed attention to the details. Making the new Plank was the first time I actually made something look, in a sense, "cartoony" and I fell in love with the style immediately! It just goes to show that you can always grow as an artist and your style and views are allowed to change over time. I hope to continually grow, not only my Plank Keychains, but with every piece of art that I make. Each one, I want to always get better and learn more than I did with the last. These are available through the link in my bio if you'd be interested in having Plank pal around with you on your set of keys! #Miniatures #Mini #Art #Artwork #Miniature #Miniaturist #Artist #Model #AwesomeThanks #Cartoon #Classic #CartoonNetwork #Childhood #EdEddEddy #EdEddNEddy #Keychain #Plank #Cartoons #Character #Keys #Style #Cartoonist #Evolution #ThenAndNow #ThrowbackThursday #PicOfTheDay #Animation #Johnny2x4 #Nostalgia #Growth

For as long as my brain can remember I've been a Scooby Doo fanatic. I've seen just about every iteration of the show, and most movies as well. Growing up, and still, I have a box FULL of Scooby Doo toys and memorabilia. The Mystery Inc. Gang is just something I've always fallen in love with! Next to That 70's Show, Scooby Doo is my favorite series of all time! As we speak, I'm looking at a toy that I've got on my desk right now of Charlie the Robot, from the "Foul Play in Funland" episode. I always liked that one. I hope to work on some cool Scooby inspired things in the future as well! Suggestions always welcome! Funny enough, in highschool, my favorite class of all time was Media Production, we made videos and things of that nature, we had to work on a silent film, no talking at all, but it could be about anything we wanted it to be, and we decided on Scooby Doo! So we filmed a 15ish minute long Scooby Doo episode, all in silence! Hahah. It was fantastic! Maybe I'll show it to you guys if you're interested? Which character from the Gang do you think I was? 🧟♀️🧛🏻👻 #Miniatures #Mini #Art #Miniature #Artist #AwesomeThanks #Halloween #HalloweenArt #October #Scary #Spooky #Scooby #ScoobyDoo #Scoob #ScoobySnacks #MysteryInc #MysteryMachine #TheGang #Shaggy #ScoobyAndShaggy #FredJones #DaphneBlake #VelmaDinkley #Cosplay #ScoobyDooCosplay #Cartoon #TVshow #Nostalgic #Boomerang #ScoobyDooWhereAreYou
