Mega Orange Drop Dunny!

To coincide with the release of the 3″ Lemon Drop and 20″ Orange Drop Dunny figures with Kidrobot, I’ve been working on a slightly larger companion.. This fiberglass monster stands 56″ tall and is approximately the size of a Fiat.. OK maybe a bit smaller.

Teenage years can be hard on a Dunny.

A few days with an orbital sander to your face will do wonders to your complexion… it will also cover your studio in dust.

I was tempted to leave it like this.

It looked pretty neat as I stripped the original paint away.. at this point I was tempted to just leave it like this.

Chocolate Dipped!

Mmm.. Chocolate dip (or a half dozen cans of primer).

three strikes (heart in)

Here we come to the end of the Three Strikes project! I had hoped to make it a little fancier, but deadlines are deadlines and plans had to be adjusted accordingly. It turned out to be pretty simple and sweet, hopefully you enjoy it!

Masking time! Here I’ve cut a small heart shape into an adhesive vinyl frisket. I protected the surrounding area and sprayed a few light coats.

…the fun continues after the cut!

Servant of Kali – Dunny 2009

I’ve been working with Kidrobot on various projects for 5 years, but strangely enough never got around to designing for their flagship Dunny character. Well, no more! Dunny Series 2009 is due out soon, and will include my Servant of Kali design. The 3″ blood-thirsty monster includes two tiny little blood splattered swords.

Kidrobot, along with several of their retailers, will be hosting release and trading parties on September 9th! Here is a handy printable checklist (pdf) if you are one of those completists!

If you can’t make it to a party, Dunny Series 2009 will be available September 10, at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers for $7.95 each. I will have some signed AP editions available directly from the dead zebra shop in the near future.

The more handsome Beast Brother dropped off this amazing custom mini munny as a gift for me! It even has my name, bells and skulls on it, what more could a boy want? More pics up on Flickr.

Finally, Creatures fan Jamie sent me some pics of this back piece featuring the whole Creatures Mandala artwork I did a few years back. Click for a slightly larger view! It looks tight (and painful). Also this reminds me that I need to update my tattoo gallery some day.

The Baroness’ charity auction is up on eBay! Check out the auctions for custom mini-munny figures made by artists such as the Beast Brothers (above), TADO, Tim Biskup, SketOne, MAD, Tara McPherson, myself and many more! Here’s a video of some of these guys on facebook.

More information about the auction on her Vinyl Pulse post.

Mini Munny for the children

hello there, please let me go

My girl Nichole is turning the big 3-0. Most people would demand presents to celebrate, but instead she is doing the opposite and putting together a charity auction of custom Mini-Munnys from a bunch of artists that she is friends with.

I did this quick little guy for the auction which will be online next week, I will let you know when it’s up! Proceeds will go to the Cambodian Children’s Fund.

A few more pics up on Flickr.
