Its time for another eBay auction of Halloween creations from yours truly at Grimm Grinz Studio! This week I have "Waiting For Spooks at Mouse Cottage". Mrs. Mouse patiently waits on the front porch of her gingerbread cottage for the Halloween revelry to begin. She holds a bowl of fresh baked cookies. I crafted and painted each component myself from wood, clay, paint, and landscape materials. The diorama is also wired for lighting. With a flip of the switch, the interior of the cottage and the Jack-o-lantern light up! Click the link to get to my auction on Ebay for this item. ~ Thank you for stopping by. "Friend" me on Facebook (Robert Eberz OR Grimm Grinz Studio) if you want to learn more about me and my work, or just follow this blog for news of new art pieces.

Well, they're finally here! I just completed the first generation of my Trick-or-Treating Gumples. As usual, I've been a busier than a one-legged waitress at I-HOP! I'm working on two new Splat the Cat books, opened a fan page on Facebook for Grimm Grinz Studios, and creating characters for this years Halloween and Vine show. Oops! I meant to make an official announcement, but I guess I can let the cat out of the bag. In case you are wondering what "Gumples" are, they are a special group of gnome-like creatures who like to wear costumes. Unlike the realistic faces of my sculptures, The Gumples have a distinct, insect-like appearance and have skinny arms and legs. Their faces kinda remind me of chewing gum so I've named them Gumples. They are characters in a world to themselves. I had posted the concept sketches on my Facebook page, so I will do that here too. I would like you to see how my designs can sometimes change during the production phase. I posted them in my Esty store. Each Gumple is hand-made and I will be making them to order, so each one will vary ever-so-slightly. I'm offering them as a complete set of six ornaments or as individuial pieces.

Check back soon for more of my works in progress for this years Halloween and Vine show! Thanks for popping in! -Robert

I'm taking advantage of a break between book jobs to do some much needed studio cleaning and organization. I really dislike dirt and dust, but it's amazing what gathers when you're not looking. It's been suggested to me I should hire someone to clean my space since I am so busy, but I don't think that's a good idea. I get froggy when someone comes into my studio and starts moving things around. I don't mind. Cleaning is cathartic for me anyway and helps me get organized. There is one thing, however, that I dislike more than dust and that is spiders. If I come across one while I'm cleaning, my entire neighborhood will know it. I've been known to break world records in the vertical jump and gasp. What makes it so horrible is that I can't squish them! It makes me gag. I have to somehow wrangle them outside.
Wish me luck!

Okay, I know it's cliche, but I've been so busy! I promise to keep up with my blog (another cliche). When I get an assignment or when I'm on a deadline I get tunnel vision. I've been working on three books and I've been up to my eyeballs in art. I even had to go the the eye doctor to get a new prescription for my reading glasses. I can see again!
Now that things have calmed I plan on taking advantage of this time off. I can to work on some of my own projects I had put on hold. I've broken out my canvases and paints to do some painting, and all of my sculpting tools for my Halloween characters Look for WIP's pics and final pieces soon here and on my FacerBook page.
Here are some of the new Splat titles I've been working on that will be coming out soon. I am so happy Splat has become so popular. Thank you all for your kind emails. I try to answer all of them so forgive me if I haven't gotten to you yet. Unfortunately I've stopped sending out free Splat books due to my limited supply. If you would like a signed copy just send me yours and I'll sign it. Be sure to include a SASE with your copy so I can send it back to you. Thank you very much for your support and for stopping by!
