Inanimate History: Transformers
Back during the aughts, Takara released (or licensed?) these tiny PVC figures of cartoon-accurate Transformers. These were some of the most accurate representations of many of these characters ever, and remain so to this day. Each one was blind boxed (Grrr!), so I’d buy a case. Each case had a (read more...)
Inanimate History: Star Wars
I’m a part of the Star Wars generation. And no matter how much the Prequels stank, I will never shake my love for Star Wars. Like so many people my age, it’s part of me, whether I like it or not. I recently came across some old art, and thought (read more...)
Inanimate History: Old Customs
I recently stumbled across the last remaining evidence of some of my early efforts at customizing. Most of these are from 1994-1995. I’d been customizing all my life. I simply didn’t know it had a name until that point. Bear in mind there was no internet or Photoshop back then. (read more...)

CAPE 2004 Report
Okay, technically it wasn’t called CAPE until 2005, but that’s how I think of this. If this were a comic, it would be issue #0. This was my first time to display my creations publicly at Zeus (best comic shop in Dallas!), and I had a great time meeting people (read more...)

Instead, an estimated 2,400 people came out to meet artists, writers, shop the big sale and pick up some free comics. This year I sat and painted figures during the festivities. I met (read more...)
The Scooter Connection
Finally.. It’s time for some Casimir history. I’ve been making and modifying toys all my life, but I didn’t pursue it with serious intent until about ten years ago. At the time, I had just returned from my stint on Sesame Street in New York, and was back to designing (read more...)
Casimir interviewed by the Plano Insider
I was recently approached by the local newspaper the Plano Insider to be interviewed for the January 1, 2005 edition. Naturally, I was flattered and honored. Click here to see the article (read more...)
CAPE 2006 Report
Wow! CAPE 2006 was huge! We had over 60 guests and 6,000 attendees. Even the afternoon rain couldn’t stop this joint from jumpin’! And just to put a shiny touch on everything, the mayor of Dallas officially declared May 6, 2006 as Free Comic Book Day. You can learn more (read more...)
