Our last project of the year...NVC's Afro Samurai Dunny!!

Hi everyone!!! It's already the end of the year....and to finish 2006.... We decided to make a tribute to this super animation serie that will start on January 4 th on Spike TV.......It's called Afro Samurai and it will feature Samuel L. Jackson and soudtrack will be done by the one and only RZA from the Wu Tang.....
With this introduction, you probably know why we decided to make a project on this animation....It simply has all the elements that we're digging..... A mix of martial arts and hip hop........

So we make this custom with a 2'' Dunny.....and then we created and build up all the set-up and diaporama for the background....So everything is handmade and handpainted......

Needless to say more....Let's see the pics!!! By the way...thanks for Genevieve Sasseville for some of the pics. We would also like to thank to my good friend Kers for his magic touch on the smoke of the Afro Samurai!!!

Would like to thanks a few people that make a post on our Afro Samurai project:

Jack and Francine from vinylpulse.com
Brian from plasticandplush.com
Tang from kitoy.fr
Kirkland from toybot studios

Thanks to all of you who supports us and happy new year!!!!

NVC December SAGA

Here's our latest project . We're the artist of the month for December for a company called octobertoys.com
For thsi project, we custom their toy platform called the Gwin. It's a 2.5'' tall penguin blank platform. We decided to do a series of cyborg S.W.A.T team and for the rest of the blanks, we decided to use the platform differently. We sinply found that that if we're delimiting the belly of the toy, we've got some kind of face that wears something on his head.....

Because it's Holiday time, we've decided to make the Grinch....but because of the name of the toy.....we decided to called it the Gwinch!!!! To push the concept further, we decided to call the it " Dr.Bao's How the Gwinch Stole Xmas" in reference to the real title of the movie called "Dr.Seuss How The Grinch Stole Xmas"!!!!!

Our last custom is called Mr. Lunatiq......it's simply a character that is sometimes lost in his ideas and dreams....

All these custom can be bought via gwinarmy.com
The Gwinch and Mr. Lunatiq will be on auction. All the money will be donated to an association called Association Quebecoise du Syndrome de la Tourette which is an organism helping people with Gilles de la Tourette syndrom.

We would like to thanks Johnny Illdigger from Boom Bap Cats for the artwork on our promo sheet for the Gwinch and the Gwin Swat Army!!!!

We ould also thanks to Francine and Jack from vinylpulse.com and also Brian from plasticandplush.com for their post on the Gwin project!!

Thanks and hapy holidays time!

Dr.Bao....NVC crew....

Hi everybody!! It's been a while that I did not update my blog... We've been so busy with many projects that we haven't time to post some of our new works.....But hey...here's the treat now......there will be plenty of new stuff for you to check!!!!

Let's start with a project that we did for the We're All Mad Here show in Los Angeles....It was a tribute show for the Cheschire cat from Walt Disney.....Since we have to do a cat for the show, we just decide to do something related to our friend's hip hop music called The Boom Bap Cats!!!! So it was a kind of tribute for their excellent work.
So we've created a kind of hip hop cat that carries a grammophone on his back. We decided to transform his tail into the horn of the grammophone too.
To push our concept further, we decided to incorporate some real speakers into the belly of the cat so people can really put the plug into their computer, cd or mp3 player and can hear their music!!!

We would like to thanks Francine and Jack from from vinylpulse.com for thes article on our Cheschire Cat custom. There's also Brian form plasticandplush.com and Kirkland from toybotstudios
