I was invited to do a piece for the “Memories Are Made of This” Show at MunkyKing Store LA. I did sent “Benz & Jilla” to attend at this great event, i’m sure they will have fun there together with Super Cooper who celebrate his 13th birthday today! :] “Benz” loves to wandering around in green plains and does enjoy the the warm summer breeze with his little pull toy named “Jilla”. Benz & Jilla are made out of brass and sapele mahogany wood with a bees wax finish. This is a one off piece, signed & numbered by embossing and you can adopt them today at the show if u like!
Congrats to Cooper! I can’t fly to LA so i’ll carve some more wood chaps here in my studio but if you’re in the area be sure to head over to Munky King Saturday August 18th to meet my “Benz & Jilla” and see all the amazing artwork from the participating artists. Read more on the FB Event Page about the ”Memories Are Made of This” show.

The BEECHBLOCKS comes from a beautiful place where it is always late spring, with blooming flowers and cloudless skies, never too warm or too cold.
Their heraldic motto is “Walk upright like the trees and keep the sun in your heart!” ^___^
Just wanted to let you know about the next 5 and final lot of the WOODBEES – my collab with the super talented Lunabee. This time we have 4 lovely worker-bees – and of course their esteemed Queen who is larger than the worker bees and sports a beautiful dainty crown. You can see more pictures of all the bees on her flickr:
They will be up on sale today on Lunabees store at 7pm London time on the 17th May! Please note these are the very last in this series, each is uniquely painted and once they’re gone, they’re gone! Worker bees are a mere $99 and the beautiful Queen with the hand carved crown $149. The sale will be take place at Lunabee’s store (http://lunabee.co.uk)!
i’m very happy to announce my recent collaboration between myself and the very talentd UK artist Lunabee. The hand carved wooden bees, aptly names WOODBEES, were created by myself here in Switzerland out of maple & walnut wood and then shipped over to her to paint up in the lovely Lunabee style. There are 10 bees in total – 9 smaller worker bees (approx 2.5 inches in length) and one large Queen bee (approx 3.5″). The worker bees will be up for $99 each and the Queen for $149.
These are the only bees that are being made – there will be no future series, it’s a one off collaboration and so this is the only chance to grab one of these wooden delights.
The release is being split into two with 5 worker bees being released this Thursday the 10th May at 7pm London time on Lunabees store (http://lunabee.co.uk) and the remaining 4 worker bees and the Queen being released on Thursday the 17th May at the same time and in the same place.
The 5 being released this Thursday and are named (using the group shot) L-R :
Daisy, Totem, Noctus, Dolly and Harley
The photos of the other bees will be released next Monday. In case you can’t wait to see more, you can see some work in progress pictures on flickr.
The BOOSO’s love to romp around and practice territorial fights with each other. You won’t guess but the BOOSO’s are a very artistic bunch of bucks! Their huge horns are pretty strong but from times to times sadly they also get tangled up into trees. Hopefully a MEGA BOOSO is in sight to help this unlucky fellow then out of this very precarious position! Now the huge MEGA BOOSO’s are the bigger brothers of the BOOSO’s! They always keep an eye on the playing little BOOSO’s while eating tons of yummy oak leaves! :]
RELEASE – Saturday, November 19th
