It seems I'm far from the only one who grew up with the incredible comics of Bill Watterson, namely Calvin and Hobbes. Without having to say it, this is definitely my favorite of VISEone's Comic Stripped pieces to date. This 16 inch Qee customized to look like Hobbes is nothing short of fantastic, and the comics worked so fantastically for this piece.
Thankfully he just made black and white copies on white and orange paper so none of the original books were harmed in the making of this custom. The loose brushstrokes do a great job of replicating the original style in the comics. VISEone is very partial to this piece and hasn't decided if he's going to sell it yet. Offers will start at €650 including shipping, so if you're interested you can contact him and see if he's willing to part with it. Head on over to VISEone's website for more information in the new March Newsletter.

Last week, we had a look at Gus Santome's latest custom papercraft featuring the Iron Man Mk. 1 armor and a group photo of what was to come. Since then, Santome has updated his blog with images and download links to the Mk. 2, Mk. 3, Mk. 4, and Mk. 5 armors.
They all look rad, and the patterns are absolutely free.
This week on Custom Made Monday, we've gone to the movies for a bit! Or maybe back to the 1920s ... or the pages of your comic book ... or into the sky on a jetpack ... or all of the above. Why? Because they're all among this week's customs, silly.
