8-Bit Heroes on Youtube!

Hello! This is Super Cooper, and I present to you a brand new project that I am doing with my friends on Youtube and (hopefully) Twitch!

I am a part of a brand new group called The 8-Bit Heroes. We will be playing and broadcasting a bunch of games off of our PCs, Macs, and even our iPhones! We are planning to start posting very soon. Hopefully by the next couple of weeks, we will get our first video up and running. It has been quite a slow pace for us since I need my mom to approve software and a couple of our computers broke down for various reasons. But we have fixed them and gotten new ones.

I have a wonderful cast of people I will play, commentate, and review video games with! My cool friend, Jake, is a big Minecraft fan and will be playing it. Another incredible, Nintendo-loving member named Kyle will be doing gameplay videos as well with Tips and Tricks. My other cool friend, Sal, will also be contributing a lot to our page. Also, I happen to know a future scientist by the name of Benji who will be doing game theories. Even more members are coming soon!

I will be putting up a couple of Top 10-ish videos, along the lines of "Top 10 Songs Based on Video Games" and "Top 10 Worst Gameboy Color Games." I will also be playing a lot of bootleg games, one called "Pokemon Vietnamese Crystal" which I will be playing a lot. I am also excited to play some iOS (or iPhone) games, and I (hopefully) will do art for it too! Feel free to recommend me some games you would like me to play ($10 or under with safe download, please! Thanks).

Please subscribe to the 8-Bit Heroes page at the link down below. We may not have any videos yet, but we will be sure to start with a bang!

Hi Guys!

This is Super Cooper Berella! I'm sorry I haven't posted anything in a long time. I promise I will post more entries soon. Art is coming your way!

This is my entry to Toysrevil's "Year of the Snake" Project.


I was also featured in Toysrevil's "Bye 2012, Hello 2013" Project. I was featured on his blog with other amazing artists here.

I customized a resin Hug by Blamo Toys for their custom show. I called my custom "Lil' Thuggies."


I just got 200 followers on instagram! Come and join the party!

Thank you for all the support!

Wondercon 2012 Props

Hi Everyone! I'm sorry I haven't posted any new things lately. I just went to Wondercon!!!! I met so many new friends including FrankenFactory (toy above), who does resin figures. This raving rodent is called Mad Sad Mouse. She made this totally rad toy called Wolfgirl.
Wondercon included many indie toy companies, like Bugs and Plush! They make vinyl toys. I think that it's a very cute idea they included a sticker pack and two sets of wings. Bugs and Plush also had a fun custom display.

Here's three toys from Wondercon. One is from Bugs and Plush, one from Mixo, and another from Rustedhalo/Rusted Nail. Mixo does small cans called Kooky Kanz. They either have a small craft or yummy candy inside. I thought the Green lantern one looked the coolest. I also saw an upcoming zombie papercraft coming soon. OOOOOOOHHH!!!!!!

The Rusted Nail is a gallery in Arizona which feature custom skate decks, custom toys, and many more art. The custom above is called "The Rogue Trooper" by Leathers2000. Me and the owner of the shop, Danny talked about how Kidrobot kept on mass-producing and making great designs ruined.
Oh no! The Cheeky Monkeys have brainwashed Mad Sad Mouse and SB! Maybe the Cheeky Monkeys ARE brainwashed by Mad Sad Mouse and SB. Ok, I'm confused. LOL :)

I'd like to give props to Shea of FrankenFactory, the Frombies crew, Erick Scarecrow, Danny of Rusted Nail, Jerome Lu, and Bugs and Plush for making my Wondercon!

Earth Movement Art Show @ Kokoro Gallery RECAP

Me and Kirkland Jue playing roshambo

Hi Readers!

I was just at San Francisco to check out my show at Kokoro Gallery! It was super fun! I went to Kokoro Studio for the opening and the preview. Both nights were super busy! I did three pieces with my family, one with monkies, Jerome Lu and Sebastien Pablo, and one with Jeremy Brautman. Many other artists collaborated with their children to make pieces about the Japan earthquake.

I enjoyed looking at all the art pieces! Each one had different perspectives. Lamour Supreme and his daughter, Jolie did the 5 elements. Jeremy Madl's daughter, Mae Madl did a piece about losing a toy. Chris Shary and his son, Sam Shary made a piece about rocking into nature.

He recently posted Earth Movement previews. Please check out his blog; he has some great things to say about the art scene. You can see him and I at Earth Movement at Kokoro Gallery March 1st.

Givaways and Pop-Up Shop for Earth Movement

These are the amazing people who donated a few toys to Earth Movement! Thank you guys! I gotta give some props to TAG, Lucy Moose, Betty Lou's Cake Pops, Maqet, Vannen Watches, Kidrobot, Circus Punks, Munky King, Color Ink Book, and Happy Panda toys for donating rad stuff to the givaways and pop-up shop for Earth Movement!

Here's the info from Earth Movement's Tumblr page: "We’re giving away STUFF from these outstanding people and companies! We’ll have a couple of cases of DIY toys, and we’ll give one to every kid under 17 who comes to the show during our Saturday, March 3rd opening (while supplies last)! By discretion of the curators, we will also give away available DIY toys to folks who are over 17 but embrace their inner kidult (without being overly obnoxious of course). The loot includes DIY OMIs, Circus Punks, Munnys, Little Cupcakes and more.

Additionally, we’ve got some very special giveaways to raffle off, like artist watches from Vannen, EARTH MOVEMENT-exclusive MAQET figurines and one awesome opportunity to have your doodle sewn into a stuffed plush by Lucy Moose all the way in Scotland!

Every kid artist in our show will also be entered into the raffle, and we will mail winners their prizes. Every attendee also gets a delicious Betty Lou’s Cake Pop on both March 1st and March 3rd (while supplies last).

Please click on our sponsors and check out their shops!"

"H8 Lets you Down, I'll Help you Up" Custom Munny

Doing a custom Munny for the Rusted Nail Gallery was fun! My custom (above), "H8 lets you down, I'll help you Up" is currently in Arizona being visited by Arizonians. I made this cute couple for the "I <3 Munny" custom munny show case which opened just a few weeks ago.

I found out about this gallery through Designer Con in Pasadena, California. Another Arizonian shop called Lulubell Bodega had a booth there too, and will contribute a piece with their children for Earth Movement!

Here's some of my favorite pieces from the show:


I really enjoy this custom because I find this custom as a message saying love is a dark place and I found it one of the only dark pieces in the show. This custom looks like that Skyrim character, I guess because of his horns. Ha! Ha! :)


What a cute custom! This dunny-munny seems like a gold digger. I like the color involved in the custom because simplicity is great with dunnies!

Hollow Shells

Yet another cute custom. Just like the custom before this, I love the simplicity of color. I love the materials because they show cuteness and a parasite-like creature digging through the chest. I creature digging love this!

Allison Perez / Miss Zukie

I know Alison Perez from her toys named the Zukies. She recently released them as blind boxed figures. I like her Munny custom because her art is different in this piece. I also love this piece because of it standing on a grassy platform. I love platforms!

Check out the gallery page here.
