Apalala x Toby Dutkiewicz


New vinyl in the works from Toby Dutkiewicz.

The 'Ta fang hsi-yu chi' by Hsuan-tsang (a Chinese scholar who wrote about India) tells the story of Apalala. Kasyapa Buddha was a man with the power to control the weather. He did so by controlling the evil dragons that possessed the power to bring storms. In return for his good will in controlling these storms, the local people offered him grain. Eventually, the people started to forget to offer the grain and Kasyapa grew angry. He prayed that he would become a dragon, so that he could punish them for their selfish behavior.

This prayer was eventually granted and after his death he became the dragon Apalala. He made his home in a pond in Udhyana (an old name for the area of the Swat valley). He destroyed the area with powerful storms and rain. This continued every crop season until Sakyamuni Buddha visited the area. He persuaded Apalala that what he was doing was wrong. They came to an agreement where Apalala would stop his destruction in return for one crop every twelve years. Rather than relying on the people to provide the offering, he would take it himself by flooding the land.

ICYMI: Superhero Nap Time artist Cole Brenner Live Painting at Longmont Artwalk

Unfortunately this post is a bit late to get people informed about the Longmont Artwalk in Longmont, CO. Cole Brenner, artist behind Superhero Nap Time, had a live painting session during the artwalk, where Cole painted a 48" x 36" canvas in roughly 4 hours. With the help of Cole's 2 year old , the end result is a Calvin and Hobbes inspired piece, with a "Schlopp of Dr. Suess' Oh The Places You'll Go, ' titled "On The Catwalk". Cole Brenner is the same artist who created the My Bomb to Bear 3.5" Resin figure, available through Tenacious Toys. This exact piece, as well as many other art prints, are available through Cole's online Etsy shop, Superhero Nap Time. Priced at $700 plus shipping, this colorful piece is a great deal, especially considering the overall size of the painting. Be sure to check out Superhero Nap Time and follow Cole through FB and Instagram.

Custom Tequila by Cat Atomic

Vinyl Toy Artist Cat Atomic created a custom Muttpop Tequila for Suburban Vinyl's custom Tequila show, being held during NYCC 2015. Cat Atomic spent quite a bit of time sculpting some additional features on the Tequila figure, many of the WIP shots can be seen on Cat Atomic's Instagram Page. The skull face is a bit of a signature feature used by Cat Atomic on most of his customs. Usually sticking to a 3D looking painted feature, Cat Atomic took it one step further and decided to sculpt out some of the facial features he usually paints, such as the nasal area and eyebrows. Doing this actually allowed Cat Atomic to create even more depth and shading, but it doesn't look like he knew exactly how to approach the sculpted features which are normally painted, opting to essentially overlay the paint right onto the clean sculpt. Hopefully, Cat Atomic continues with sculpting the facial features of his pieces and begins to see where he can add more depth and pop, now that some features already exist. It may even be great to see if Cat Atomic cut more features into the facial sculpt, instead of having to paint the lines around the eyes. Also, adding a bit more contrast in color should go a long way in making certain parts of the figure pop and standout. Overall, the piece is a wonderful representation of Cat Atomic's work. Priced at $220, this custom Tequila will be available at the Suburban Vinyl booth #208 during NYCC 2015, Oct 8-11th.

Gutwitz Custom Tequila by Rocketboy

During NYCC 2015, Suburban Vinyl is holding a custom Tequila show, featuring a good number of artists customizing the Muttpop Tequila figure. Rocketboy created what he is calling Gutwitz, a beefed up version of his Nohwitz character. Standing over 8" tall, Gutwitz is priced at $250 and will be on display and for sale at the Suburban Vinyl booth #208 in the Block. Any left over customs will be available for sale after NYCC, through Suburban Vinyl.

NYCC 2015 Satyrs by Seulgie x MyPlasticHeart

With NYCC 2015 right around the corner, many pieces are beginning to pop up. Art toy sculptor Seulgie Lee will be releasing an exclusive colorway of her popular Satyrs at NYCC for the first time. Seulgie is a Brooklyn based artist who first imagined the Satyrs, when she first drew them, in sugary pastel colors with delicate sparkles and glitters around them. To that effect, this release of the NYCC Satyrs are what Seulgie first envisioned. Each of these NYCC Exclusive Satyrs stands at 4.5" tall and is resin cast in pink and blue. The attached ribbon and Swarovski are specific for NYCC. Each one of these Satyrs has been created by Seulgie herself and she has teamed up with MyPlasticHeart to have these for sale at NYCC 2015. Each Satyr will be priced at $95 and is limited to just 30 handmade pieces. Pick one up at MPH at booth #113, during NYCC 2015.
