February 9, 2009 — Open For Business

Hey there everybody — Welcome to the official launch of www.joshuaizzo.com!  Glad you could make it and I hope you stick around and stay awhile.

Folks, this website has been in the making for a very long time.  Ever since I started goofing off on the internets, I’ve been an admirer of classy websites like my buddies Iron-Cow, Airmax and Swass Designs and have longed for a little internet real estate of my own.

There’s been a few starts and stops along the way, but I finally think it’s time to unleash all of my kooky content onto the unsuspecting world wide web!

Amongst the pages here at joshuaizzo.com you’ll find all sorts of entertaining things to check out instead of working, listening to your significant other or taking care of the kids.

There are a few pages of my illustration work, including a massive project called “They Might Be Illustrations” where I created illustrated version of thirty They Might Be Giants song lyrics.

I have a few pages where I showcase my professional consumer products work and my animation production experience.  I’ve been a lot of places and done a lot in my working career, and joshuaizzo.com will be a place to show off the results of all my hard work.

There’s also a few galleries that showcase all my hand-made custom action figures.  For a long time, a lot of these figures were posted in on-line galleries at Raving Toy Maniac and The Fwoosh, but now everything is under one proverbial roof for your viewing pleasure!

I think I’ve rambled on long enough, and I really want you guys to start checking out the site...but I wanted to take a minute to thank my beautiful wife Bridget and buddies Matt, Pierre, Steve, Steve and Gene for all your support in making joshuaizzo,com come to life.

Okay, that’s all for now gang.  Have fun looking through my site, and be sure to check back often - I have a LOT more stuff to add!

May 25, 2009 – Customs!  Videos!  Contests!  Update-A-Palooza!
Hey Kids!  I want to first thank everyone for stopping by, perusing the site and e-mailing their well wishes and congratulations on the launch.  I really appreciate all the support and I sincerely thank each and every person that is helping spread the gospel of joshuaizzo.com.
First off, I want all you cats and kittens to check out the OVER 30 NEW Custom Action figures on the site!  Peruse all the galleries HERE and as always, let me know what you think.
Secondly, I’ve dug up some pretty fun stuff that I’ve added to the Production section of the site.  Here’s some quick history on the two new videos I uploaded…

When I was working in the Hasbro Cake Mix Studios, we were tasked with creating some on-air commercials for the Tooth Tunes brand.  Some casting had been done and a voice over talent had been chosen, but it wasn’t jiving with the brand owners.  Being the ham that I am, I jumped in the booth and gave the script a read.  After some internal debating, it turned out that the powers-that-be liked my voice over work and I was ‘hired’.  I think I recorded at least a dozen different spots, but I’ve uploaded just one example.  These ran on Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and some other kids’ networks as well. 
I also found one of my on-air skits that we created for the Hasbro-branded "Action Blast!" program that ran on G4 TV.  The basic concept was that there was a girl named Dr. Physics and she would speak to the actual working physics behind NERF weapons - it was actually a really clever concept.  They needed someone (that was on the Hasbro payroll) to be her loyal lab assistant.  AGAIN, being the ham that I am, I leapt into the yellow coveralls and Eggers was born.  Throughout maybe three or four skits I was abused endlessly, but it was an awesome experience.
Head on over to page two of the Production Section HERE and check out Eggers in the Library and my voice over talents in a rockin’ Tooth Tunes spot!
Finally, me and my pals over at The Fwoosh have put together something AWESOME!  I donated to them my Ra’s Al Ghul custom (check it here) as a giveaway to the customizing and action figure collecting community.  As a thank you, they put together an amazing interview with yours truly!  After you’ve checked out all the updates here on joshuaizzo.com head over to The Fwoosh and check out the interview and enter the giveaway!
So there you go!  I made it to update number two, and if you guys could take a look at the war zone that is my studio, update number three is not that far off!  Talk to you later gang!
