The Scary Love Hello Tiki is a talisman to ward off unwanted love. Some kinds of love are not healthy, and Hello Tiki II: Scary Love protects the holder from their ill effects. Standing 3" tall, this one of a kind piece was designed by NEMO and is based on the Hello Kitty plastic figure. The piece features  a hand-sculpted base, grass skirt and hand carving and painting. It is available now for $95 at the Tenacious Toys website.

My latest custom is a custom Labbit. The base is a Yankee Pig Dog Labbit (Kronk). I am extremely happy with this outcome. It will be soon for sale in the store.

Calmplex) of Donkey Jaw Projects, MOLT the Locust Monster stands three inches tall and is cast from an original sculpt and hand painted.  Limited to ten pieces, each MOLT comes signed, numbered and bagged with a custom header card with painted eyes.  $20 each.
