|If I ruled the world Crown, by Taylor Lymbery|
Outside of Podcasting, custom toy making, painting and illustrating, I do have a day job. On some Saturdays, I am the crafting expert for the Kid's Club in our store. This last Saturday, our craft was, "If I ruled the World", Crowns. The idea was to draw a scene of what the world would look like if you ruled it. The task for the kids was to use visual art to express an idea that would normally be spoken. The kid's projects differed based on their personalities. I had one girl who wanted everything to be made out of rainbows. People, food, the land, and even kittens would be made out of rainbows and would be bright,pretty, and happy. So, her crown was covered in rainbows. I had another girl on the opposite spectrum who's work was a bit like mine with the grouping of monsters, robots and aliens. All of her creatures were under her control and were all good friends. Me, I wanted all sorts of random creations and the Stay Puff Man to be disco dancing. Why disco dancing, because our muzak seemed to be stuck on ABBA's Dancing Queen that morning. What can I say, I'm influenced by my environment.
I did buy a table for the Dallas Comic Con: Fan Days on October 4th-6th. If you are wanting a pre-Fan Days commission, let me know and I'll get it ready for pick up at that show.
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.
If you have not heard about the Podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and 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! The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! The shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to Marvindogmedia.com and give us a listen.
