POG BLOG!

A while back I was asked by a toy company to design some POG type toys. I was super excited! They were getting a few different artists to do some samples...y'know like as a test to see whose design style they liked best. I did a couple and they said 'thanks, but no thanks'...it just wasn't what they were looking for. Then I got a call a couple of days later saying, "We need like 30 POG designs...when can you get 'em done!" Excited again! Too bad they never ended up manufacturing them. Here are a few...

I love them especially the part where Hobo Divine does the head spin. Why did you call a time out?
