I am extremely honored to be included with this new group show.
Aptly titled, the “World’s Greatest One of One Custom Toy Show” has an incredible roster of talent, and it’s an honor to show next to some of the top names in the field. The show is curated by phenomenal artist and friend of mine, “KMNDZ.” He’s made a couple pieces for the show, the teasers of which look incredible. The show is at the huge da Center for the Arts gallery space in Pomona, California, and it was fun to help do a little bit of the extensive mural work lining the walls for the show.
The custom I made was a modified Mega Munny by Kidrobot. For those not in the know, Kidrobot makes both blank and printed vinyl toys (and much more) for collection and customization. I had this Mega Munny sitting around for years since and was looking for something rather epic in scale to make from it. This seemed like the perfect opportunity. It was a blast creating the various lichen and mushroom forms to modify the blank vinyl, and figuring out how to put it all together from the image in my head was…a learning experience to say the least. I’m very pleased with the final result, and will definitely be doing more customization in the future. I just may…do things a bit differently next time.
The show opens tonight at 6PM, and I’ll be in attendance, along with several other artists from the show. Full details are below.
Hope to see you there!
