Acid Flow

April2

Here it is, my latest custom, in the form of a 7″ Munny entitled “Acid Flow”. This piece started out as some fun for myself, getting back to my roots in graffiti and letting it come out more heavily in my vinyl work. I was quite happy to be creating a toy with only myself to please, but I must admit I was even happier when it ended up selling before it was even finished! Drop me a comment with what you guys think :)

Choice Cuts

January16

When the news on the Lustre Gloss Labbits from Kozik broke I must say I was pretty annoyed. In my opinion it was yet another money maker from Kidrobot, with about as much creativity or ingenuity as a brick. This new piece however landing on the 9th Feb ($80) actually tickles my fancy, its simple, yet clever and you can see that more than 5 minutes thought has gone into it.

Kidrobot Black

October5

Lilitu by Tara McPherson is a new piece from Kidrobot Black which represents the 3D interpretation of her 2010 painting. “This painting is based on the Sumerian myth of the demon Lilitu. Representing chaos, seduction and ungodliness. She is a sexually charged yet infertile succubus who behaves aggressively toward men and children killing them at her every whim, her breasts are filled with poison not milk. In her every guise, Lilitu has cast an evil spell on humankind. This thing is truly beautiful!
