Welcome to the new Squink website. I decided something a little brighter, cleaner, and easier to navigate was necessary to start off a new tax year, you'll also notice the absence of exclamation mark from the Squink brand, a change that removes all unnecessary elements. A lot of new work for 2014 should reflect this peaceful, minimal feel, especially now that I've drawn a line under my 2011 'Ken the Mysterious Tiger' production Dunny design that so many people requested hand painted versions of.
After seeing so much great work on offer at ToyconUK, and having inspiring chats with talented folk such as Muffinman (who has a talent for clean sculpts like I've never seen) I want this year to be about developing my skills with polymer clay + epoxy, and putting a little more time into creating original pieces from scratch rather than having so much focus on applying paint to existing platforms.
After doing this for over 8 years, I'm still learning a lot about the desires of collectors as well as my own, and I hope to be able to bring you all some artwork that makes you feel something, and in the process put out some pieces which are close to my heart too. After all, that's what art is all about, right?
Wishing you all the best, none of this could exist without your support, and for that I'm eternally grateful.
