Gary Baseman Buckingham Warrior - Wolyner Forest Warrior coming soon

by
The Buckingham Warrior is a defender of strong ideals and a stark reminder to the fragility of our own ecology.  He is a deer who lives in symbiosis with the natural world and when forced to defend the natural order, the Buckingham Warrior can not be defeated.

The Wolyner Forest Warrior is the first incarnation of Buckingham, a righteous deer.
The 12" figure was inspired by Gary Baseman's father, a Holocaust Survivor. Packaged in a closed satin finished box, this figure features multiple points of articulation and comes with severed head and sword accessories.

The price is $115 each and we'll have preorders up next week in our Baseman section.

JC Rivera custom Calavera Dunny and Munko

by
JC Rivera has an amazing eye for composition. His delicate custom paint work on the David Choe Munko figure above is exquisite- just enough detail to create a fully-realized  piece of art, yet minimal enough to work perfectly within the simple form of the Munko figure. This piece is about 3 inches tall, and it doesn't come witha crown- that's JC's addition in resin. I suppose the crown is sort of his  signature- he incorporates a crown into many of his pieces.

At the same time, there's noting subtle about the other piece JC emailed to us: this wild custom 8" Calavera Dunny has also been blessed by JC's sculpting and painting. This one was based on a 3" Calavera Dunny JC did last month- it came out so nice that a customer commissioned him to do an 8" version, so regrettably, it's already sold. In typical Benny fashion, I did not make this blog post fast enough to give you a crack at buying the Munko- it's sold as well.

There are, however, still several really cool customs available in JC's shop, so click here to see what's available. He also takes commissions, obviosly. Here are his links:

We still have some of JC's Riker's Island series left in stock- a 3" Dunny series he made for our shop.

Genuinely disgusting Grubby custom by eeKs

by
Usually the time I set aside for blogging is while I drink my coffee in the morning, just before I eat breakfast and get on with my day. My brain works best in the morning, and the blog posts are up for people to see them as they start their day.
In this case, I'm not so sure my timing is all that great, as I just woke up and I am now staring at eeKs' custom featuring maggot-filled open wounds. BLARRRRGH! Guess I will skip eating eggs for breakfast.


6" of pure grub worm filled,  grotesque, ill tempered vinyl makes up Grubby. Between scars & the worms, Grubby stays busy being the dirtiest & most vile curmudgeon one could lay eyes on. Check him out in eeKs shop today! www.eeksart.storenvy.com in the Custom Toy section.

I've been studying and working with art now for nearly 2 decades, and one concept that is evident throughout the art world is that art is supposed to elicit a reaction from the viewer. That reaction does not always have to be positive (love, calm, happiness, warmth) for the piece to be successful. Indeed, The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch is a sick, messed-up piece that couldn't possibly make the viewer feel anything good. Yet, I love that painting- it's one of my favorites. It's sick, and it makes you feel sick, and that's awesome. Sorta like eeKs' Grubby. I really am a bit disgusted by that open wound, and that means the piece is successful. Bravo!
