Secret Project #1

One of the projects I was working on was a header card for a toy by artist Tim Biskup.
What's a header card you ask? Well, most Japanese (and some American) toys are packaged in bags instead of boxes, and a card is folded and stapled over the top of the bag like this:

I was really excited to be working on this because Tim is one of the biggest artists in the world. He has shown his paintings all over the States, in Japan, Spain, etc. and they sell for up to tens of thousands of dollars. What makes it even more special for me, is that Tim spent quite a bit of his youth right here in Fresno, CA. It's always nice to see a local boy make it big.
Beside painting Tim also designs toys for the Designer Vinyl scene, and the header is for his version of Gargamel's Zagoran figure:

And here are pix of the header card, designed by Tim Biskup:
