Yokai-John(formerly known as J.Ro) has been making and selling OOAK(mostly clay) art-work since 1996.
The Yokai-John Story:
About Yokai-John(formerly known as J.Ro),the Yokai-John story all starts back in Catholic elementary school in Queens NYC......ok no let's not go back that far let's start the story in about November 1996 when I began selling my hand-made self taught art-work(sculpture,etc.,etc.,etc.) in Manhattan NYC's Village(both East &West). I started off selling chess sets(fantasy themed chess pieces made from metal which I cast from molds,which I would then convert into original figures with Millaput plumber's putty) to the Village Chess Shop LTD(in the West Village). In the following months I started looking for other places where I could share and sell on consignment my handy-work. My sister,we'll call her Miss M,suggested I try a place called Its,A Mod,Mod World(1994-2006,Rick recently reopened the shop with some friends up in Buffalo,N.Y.) then on 9th street between 1ave and ave A(which was run and owned by Rick Smith & Kei Yip,two very artistic guys who inspired me very much to create the things I create to this very day). I first met Kei,who took my first consignment there some metal 60mm Dragons I had casted & bejeweled,and suggested that I break up my chess sets and sell the pieces separately.A few days later I came back and brought some chess pieces to sell separately and also some clay mini busts(mostly Pans,Devils,and Skulls,some of my earliest clay sculpts)and I met Rick,who took everything and asked me to bring more.Over the next few months I got to know Rick & Kei rather well(especially Rick) and eventually Rick invited me to make my art out of the basement(Art Dungeon) of Its A Mod,Mod World after they moved to a bigger shop on 2nd Ave between 5th & 6th streets(during this time I also started selling my sculpture in other shops like Earth-Sea,Trash and Vaudville NYC,Zito Studio Gallery,Rudy's Hobby Shop in Queens,River-stone in Connecticut,and a few others).From there I was Inspired by Rick,Kei,and Chloe(who managed the store/gallary some days),to create all sorts of new,wonderful,and sometimes monsterous things out of this crazy and beautiful shop(July 1997-February 2006).After the shop closed in February 2006,I pretty much stopped actively selling my art(although I did continue creating) for a few years until July 11,2009 when much like a Youkai I returned from the(artistic)dead transformed as Yokai-John and I opened my self-named shop on Etsy(yay!) and here I continue on today.

Noticed you deleted the Gillman Group :-\ I guess it had to be done in any case.
Btw, thanks for fave+ on the new Mothman Sculpt. Trust me, there will be plenty more out on my way! =D

Hey I saw your figures in the custom fan photo gallery on Classic TV Toys. Great stuff bro! In your opinion are the figure materials they sell of good quality?
