Ian Ziobrowski's "The Nuggy Eater" dunny custom

by
Ian Ziobrowski sends us images of a sweet commission he did for a private collector. It's a Kidrobot Dunny painted with acrylics that he calls The Nuggy Eater. Ian says that, besides the cops, The Nuggy Eater is Nuggs' worst enemy! This one is a 3-inch Dunny, which is amazing because the brushwork is so fine that I had to call Ian on the phone to ask him what size it was! 
With no frame of reference, and with such minute details, I thought it might be an 8-incher. 
Ian's really bangin' out some amazing work these days... if you go to his facebook page you can see a teaser of an amazing Jerry Garcia commission he just did. He'll also be updating us during November with the progress of the 20-inch Qee we had shipped over to him for the Qee to the City custom show down at Multiversal happening early December.

First Annual 2nd Avenue Trading Card Convention and Swap Meet/brothel

by

The other night we went down to Toy Tokyo Underground in downtown NYC to the 1st Annual 2nd Ave Trading Card Convention, which was basically a chance for all of us artists, card nerds and toy store owners to get together, party, trade cards, drink beer, draw naughty things in inappropriate places, and generally revel in all that is good and right with the world. It was crazy fun!

Check the video. You'll see Tom of Sidekick Labs (they made the Art Hustle cards), Simeon (the gigantic dude who came up with the Art Hustle concept and brought it to reality), the Sucklord, Phetus and a whole motley crew of NYC crazies, including NEMO, Mr. Den, Rolo, Lowell, Kid Lew, King Abnon and Tony Depew.

Simeon dropped the bomb on us that Tenacious Toys would have a card in Art Hustle Series 3. Made our whole month! I picked up some of the Suckadelic SuckPax Series 2 cards, traded some of our NYCC Travis Louie cards, and met Jared, a super fan (and a customer) who flew in from Texas! A great night. I took a million pictures and I haven't even uploaded them yet because we've been dealing with a tsunami of ThreeA orders this week.

MIDNIGHT PIRATE custom by The Yellow Dino

by
Midnight Pirate

The Yellow Dino writes in with his latest custom:

It's about time- Halloween time! People are getting ready, costumes & candies. But they'd lock the door & shut all windows. Why? because of him... He who hides between the shade, under the Halloween sky. He who craves anything sweet; he who makes children cry.

Beware, folks... in the Halloween night, he will come and steal your candies, chocolates... you name it! Who is he? Some call him Midnight Pirate, some go by the name Mysterious Halloween Pirate, some are just too afraid to mention him..

So trick or treat, people? Happy Halloween!
