Thanks, everyone! Hope you find something you like.

BLURB Storytelling Series: “Dutch”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 29, 2011 by n8vandyke

As some of you probably know, a while back I made a 58 page book featuring my chimp character, Dutch. I made it with the print on demand company, Blurb. Well, late last year they asked my girlfriend (who works at Blurb and helped me make my book) if she thought I’d be interested in them doing a feature video on me and my book. After a meeting over drinks I agreed and we set up some dates. A couple guys came to my place and filmed me for two days. They caught me drawing as well as going through my regular routines of playing pool, walking around SF, etc. Turned into a pretty cool video. They did a truly great job editing it together and making me look a bit less stupid than I really am.

If you don’t have my book or wasn’t aware of it you can preview/purchase it right HERE!

Now for the video. Click on the still frame below to view it…

And, yes, it’s true. I live in a salmon-colored house…

And, AND… The late miss Hambone makes a cameo at the 1:09 mark.

Earlier in February I had the opening for my two-man art show at Double Punch in SF. The artwork is now online and what hasn’t sold is up for purchase.


There’s a new toy in town… well, almost.

Here we are with another update. I just figured I’d help leak the word that I have a new chimp toy in the works! This one has been a long time coming. There were a lot of hang-ups in it’s production but it’s coming together and looking great. I’m currently doing a bunch of artwork for the box and figured I might as well tease you with a shot of the toy and the turn-arounds I did for the sculptor. I’ll keep you guys updated on this one in future posts. Until then… enjoy an early look.



Toys R N8

My toy is official. My chimp character has been birthed as a little pile of plastic and vinyl. I will be in San Diego at Comic Con this weekend to release the little bastard and sign ’em, greet peeps and accept free beer. I will be at booth #4737 (if anyone in blog land actually cares). This little bastard also comes with a mini comic that you will not see anywhere else. For those in Minnesota or those too lazy to go I will post again when I have on-line sites to purchase it from. I will also be doing limited signed/arted toys off of my site soon. Until then, enjoy some free lookie…

I have a new baby blog and I’ve only fed it once. I would make a horrible father. In attempt to save some face I figured it’s time to post a new entry.

As a few select people may know… my first toy will be hitting the shelves in the next couple months. I’ll be sure to keep you posted on that when it happens but until then I thought I’d show some behind the scenes of how a blob of clay can turn into a bank-robbing chimp. I worked closely with the sculptor, Eli Livingston, to make sure this little bad-ass looked his best.

At the top we have how the final toy appears as featured in Inked Magazine, followed by some drawings to aide the sculptor and then the sculpt progress of the toy itself. Enjoy.
