Taylor Made Studios in Denton, Texas

I'm working toward a new goal in my life to continue carrying art education outside of the classroom. I'm starting an after school program here in my city of Denton, Texas. It's called, "Taylor Made Studios". This is something I've been wanting to do for a while and here recently I have a good block of time to do it. Here is the flyer for those who are interested in more info or bookings. 

By now you should know that I am on a podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff" on Marvindogmedia! We have just had our 5 year anniversary for the show and we will continue on for many more. Listen and enjoy our catalog of shows where we talk over many different toy lines from the past!

Arternia Show coming up July 14th, 2017

I have been invited to be a part of a great new show that has just started back in May. It is "The Limited Edition Art Show" that is held at "The Lost Toys" toy shop in Dallas, Texas! It had a great show start using Star Wars as a jumping point in May. Now it's back and this show carries the theme of Masters of the Universe! Once, ArtBot138 asked me if I wanted to be in the show, I didn't hesitate to respond back with the happiest yes that I could muster without breaking my phone in excitement! If you are familiar with me, you already know my love for Masters of the Universe! There is an awesome artist line up and from what I have seen on "The Limited Edition Art Show"'s instagram page, there will be some awesome pieces up for grabs! The show will be at the Lost Toys toyshop near I-35 and Mockingbird at 1451 Empire Central, Suite 700, 5:30-9:00pm, Friday July 14th 2017. Don't miss out on the MOTU greatness! Here are some progress pics of my Monster High Customs that will be at the show.

Artmor of the Day- Beast Fett!


This last year, I made my Artmor set of plates into Beast Man's Chest. It is a follow up to last years He-Man's Chest and the year before's Skeletor's Chest. As most of you know, I am a HUGE Masters of the Universe fan. These Artmor plates help me bring my fandom love of MOTU into the realm of Star Wars. The money made from this set and many other fantastic Artmor art pieces go to a cause that I am a strong supporter of, Toys for Tots. I talk toys, I customize toys and I love toys. My world was shaped due to the imaginative play of tiny articulated plastic and I feel it is important for every child to have that access to imagination in their youth. If you feel as strongly as I do about the importance of these auctions, or want to have a hand in owning new pieces being built for future auctions, follow up on The Artmor Project on NeoZaz's Artmor facebook pageYou can also see this Artmor piece on my deviantart page here.

So, for all of you wereworm lovers and lovers of my work, I have toys, and art pieces for sale in my Storenvy shop. I'll continue to add awesome pieces to the shop over the summer. If you see something you like, don't hesitate to purchase it. Many of these pieces will be limited. 

Just to let you know all know, I am taking commissions. If you would like to commission me for original artwork, head over to the commissions tab in store to see how. 

I have posted some new shirt designs in my Cafepress store. Head over to my Cafepress store and get a shirt or a couple! 

Jeff", then it's time I let you know! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) Seems simple enough. We pick out a toy line to discuss in each show. We share our childhood memories, our favorite five, and talk about the one toy in the line that got away. Jeff talks about how he cherished his toys and I talk about how they ended up in the garden!

Custom Toy of the Week- "LV-426"!

Back last fall, I participated in the Vinyl Thoughts Art Show 6. I had two pieces in show that reflected two of my loved film franchises, Alien, and Predator. My first piece was reflective of Alien. This piece, "LV-426", was a fun challenge. I wanted to add elements that spoke of the stillness of the first of the film before all the steam and spinning lights. One of my favorite scenes is when the Nostromo and ore station are coming up to the gas giant and the multiple moons. To capture that look, I made the head the space scene adding the 3-D element of the Nostromo and Station as a sculpted piece. The rest of the custom toy was set up to reflect my next favorite part of the film, the exploration of the derelict spacecraft and the egg field. I had to rearrange a few items and change a little of the shape of some of the exploration suits. This suit is Kain's, using the yellow band as his designated color. Each of the egg sacks were hand sculpted and the based was colored to mimic the worm metal coloring of the pads of the space suit. I had a great time building this custom vinyl toy for the Vinyl Thoughts Art Show! Below are more pictures of this toy after the messages below. You can also see this toy on my deviantart page here. You can follow up on Vinyl Thoughts on their webpage

Resin toy of the day: Intergalachicks!




About a year ago, I had made a small run of space themed chicken resin figurines that I had named, "Intergalachicks". I have finally got around to getting these chicks posted here on my website. The run of these two designs are very limited only having eight total castings of these toys. There are four bad guys and four good guys. The foul are cast in blue glow-in-the-dark pigments for the good version and orange glow-in-the-dark pigment for the bad guy themed bird. They are accented with hand painted acrylic paint application to accentuate their armor and technology. Lastly, they all have fluorescent paint for their eyes and a printed tag clear-coated to the bottom of each resin casting. 



O
These chickens are bright in blacklight! They are pumped full of GID pigment with some fun paint application. At this point, there are only 4 left. You can find them on my storenvy site for purchase.
You can also see them on my deviantart art gallery here.
