I'm a big fan of Simon Pegg, so I have painted him in some of my favorite roles that he's played.

Scotty from Star Trek
Tim Bisley from Spaced (who also said "Sure as day follows night, sure as eggs is eggs, sure as every odd numbered Star Trek movie is sh*t" -- obviously, before Simon was cast to play Scotty!!)
Nicholas Angel from Hot Fuzz
Shaun from Shaun of the Dead



Each of these wooden pegs is hand-painted with acrylic paints. I use tiny paintbrushes to add the details. The pegs stand 2 3/8" tall (small!) so the smaller details, like the "Chocolate" beanie and Shaun's nametag are pretty small (smaller than this message board font), but I love the challenge of working on tiny projects. I'm working on another TV-inspired set right now that should be done by the end of the week and I'll be sure to keep you posted! ;-)

These are hilarious.  The one on the far right is an especially good likeness.

They are great! The detail is fantastic.

I am curious where you bought the pegs from,they would make good toddler toys if the pegs were larger.

I found these pegs at several craft stores (Michael's, JoAnn's, Tall Mouse, etc.) and they are the largest ones that I have seen, although there are some available online that are 3 9/16" (Google "Little People - Man Body 3-9/16") but I have never seen those in person -- so they may also be too small for a toddler. The ones that I have (2 3/8") are NOT recommended for small children, because they fit into the choke tube. Sad
