Happy Holidays!

  Happy Holidays! Santa was good to the Moore clan- I hope he was good to you!
  I must say that this grand experiment that was the DRT WARP Bike wave went well thanks to everyone that participated. It was a risky one- but I think the risk was worth it! I will definitely be doing more DRT stuff in the future... and boxes. I had a blast doing the boxes. I am so glad that people appreciated the extra bells and whistles... I give deep heartfelt thanks to all of you guys for the support and kind words that help drive me to do this stuff. You guys also have the patience of saints. I know it takes a while for me to get shipping notices out- I know I am a slow poke. Blame stress- OCD and AADD and ODD...   
  2011 was a very successful year for Callgrim. We tried some new things this year that will sort of set the stage for 2012. There are some cool things in the works that I hope you guys will dig... and some weird twists. The fan support is a huge part of what allows for stuff to get done. I am so grateful that I can continue to do this.
   Matt is an amazing friend... the best. He is not only responsible for bringing us Glyos- but he has allowed a clown like me to romp in this world with Callgrim and his pals. 2012 will be a big year for Callgrim... more romping... more pals. Thanks brother!

Screenin' Cahdbawd Boxes





These are pics from the shop- PJ was instrumental in getting the boxes printed. He ran around the shop finding any and all flat surfaces for the things to dry while I pulled the squeegie like a monkey. It was a marathon print session. PJ is a machine.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I ate a ton of bird. I have so much to be thankful for. I have a great family- awesome friends- a decent beard- my health and most of my sanity. I am thankful for a pile of great fans and friends who dig Callgrim. I am always amazed at how many people take part in the Callgrim launches. I am both flattered and humbled. You guys are the best. Your continued interest in this stuff allows for me to grow the line and experiment with new things. Thank you! You guys are the best!

Frenemies Roll Out

I painted up some of the three part test shots of the bike in China. The paint there is delicious. I worked closely with the crew over there to make sure they could get the Custom Corps look- They pulled it off. There are many applications, masks and washes all over these things.

The debut of the bikes will bring new things to the table for Callgrim by way of presentation, paint apps and content. I am excited about this launch and proud of what we did here. The fist roll out of this new thing deserves the royal treatment. I want to pay special attention to the two main players here- Callgrim and Riac. Their relationship is complex and their story is important to the future of Callgrim and the role of the Order in the Glyos System.

WARP Bike Concept Sketches

Matt and I did a ton of sketches. We blew through Buxton paper like crazy- It was a creative blur- a perfect fusion. I couldn't tell where my beard ended and his began...

'Grim Reaper

It's finally here- Callgrim's ride. This thing has been a long time in the making. Callgrim was first shown on his bike in the Gear's Edge comic. That bike was modeled after Rechlen's Crater Hopper from the Rechlen and Aves photo book. The chasis for the WARP Bike is a fusion of elements from both. The front of the bike is WARP technology. Callgrim retro fits the common black core driven hopper style bikes with WARP enhanced battle fixtures and powerful engines. Steal a bit from this- enhance with that and juice the whole thing up with WARP tech. That's how Callgrim rolls.

Matt and I drew a ton of bikes- The final look of the bike is a result of countless revisions to dozens of drawings and designs. Matt's sculpt truly captures the look of a death machine of multiple origins using different kinds of tech. The half blind fuck hit another one out of the park. Thanks brother-

Boo

Japan was even more amazing this time around. Don was again the perfect guide and host. After busting ass in China for the better part of a week- it was great to kick back and chill with friends. The Tokiwa Hotel is our home away from home. We had McD's everyday- but the true feast was served up by Tets at the Boo restaurant. Dish after dish of great expertly prepared delicious entrees were devoured all night. Matt and I got to hang with our friends Ayako, Mori, Cord Viper, AAA, Itokin Park and Ai. We had a blast!

The Boo restaurant is attached to Ayako's Uamou store/studio. What a genius set up- Tets Boo themed restaurant on one side and the Uamou store on the other. Ayako is an amazing talent and super smart business lady. She has quite the operation! It is a truly amazing thing to experience- great food to chow and hundreds if not thousands of Uamou and Boo toys and art all over the place to check out! Ayako knows what she's doing.

Matt and I are very excited to be sharing a booth with Ayako at NYCC. She came a long way! Come check out her stuff at booth #578 if you're in town. We'll be kicking around all weekend.

1.339 billion + 2


I was let into China again this year despite my visa pic. I trimmed up the beard a bit as to look a little less homicidal. Paul generously hooked us up with palatial accommodations just a hop skip and a jump away from Glyos Central. We were quite a sight where ever we went- bearded giant and bearded dwarf... Treebeard and Gimli...

We spent our days in China working like pigs in the paint factory and our nights eating like pigs all over town. I am not sure if I could identify all of the different animals I ate- there was a lot- all delish. I gained 10 pounds.

It was great seeing the crew again. They do such amazing work on all of our crazy little projects. I was super happy to finally pull the trigger on the next Callgrim project. I am putting these guys through hell a bit- but if anyone can pull it off... these guys can.

I am still a fumble fuck with chopsticks.
