Let me start off by talking about Titanium, a new color application technique Brian is developing. It creates the appearance of an iridescent sheen flowing over a figure's contours. The effect is stunning. Here's a shot of the Titanium colorway applied to a Marusan Hedora:
|As you can see, Brian has a TON of projects in the works.|
But that's not all! Brian is also cranking the Euro scene dial to FULL TILT by curating an upcoming event in the Netherlands called "Nederland MonsterJam." The show, scheduled to be held in Amsterdam in July, will feature customs by 18 artists. Geweldig!

Let's head back to the pics for a bit. Brian has a legendary toy collection which has rarely been shown publicly. Here's a shot Brian was kind enough to share of some of his amazing collection:
|Check out those gorgeous Blobpus x Yamomark, GUUMON, and Max Toy figures!|
And a bunch more + an unpainted GID Daigomi that Brian gave me. So stoked!
Next up here's a Grody Shogun En Man that Brian customized. I love the hair + jacket. All it needs are some high heels and lipstick. Then the question of "How much?" takes on a whole new meaning. Down boy!
Finally here's a look at some figure dying techniques that Brian is working on, using a type of dye from Japan:
|As Brian explained, the dyes work really well with vinyl. The vinyl absorbs the dye through its pores, allowing GID figures to retain their glow even after being dyed.|
So that's an inside look into the world of GUUMON. Thanks again Brian + Wendy. You guys are the best!
