The Selby Visits Pharrell

Todd Selby certainly has been invited to visit many of the artists that we admire in the past (ie: Robert Longo & Mr.). This time, he visits Pharrell, who just performed at Art Basel Miami (covered) in his Miami home where his collection of KAWS paintings and sculptural pieces apparently play a prominent role in his interior decorating aside from a Keith Haring piece. The series of commission pieces based on Family Guy as well as rare edition figures certainly has AM jealous – oh, […]

Dr. Romanelli x Oliver Peoples: “Dr. Goodfellow” Sculpture

Check this figure designed by our friend Dr. Romanelli and optics retailer Oliver Peoples. Inspired by a mythical sprite known to many as “Puck”, the figure blends a mix of the vintage Victorian style with Dr. Romanelli’s fresh eye to revamp this collaboration into a modern classic. The details on the figure are pretty well thought out as we spy the miniature stethoscope, scissors, and of course the obligatory chained monocle. It comes in a very limited edition of ten – six bronze that ages into into a […]

Baby Tattooville ’10: Gift Bag and Goodies

One of the biggest barriers confronting many who consider attending Baby Tattooville is the cost. Although it may seem a little pricey, what you receive in return more than makes up for it.

Previews: NYCC – Myth Warrior & Sharky @ Toy Qube Booth #2874

Our friends over at Toy Qube sent us a few images of the figures that will be released at this weekend’s New York Comicon. First is the long awaited release of the hand painted Dragon Warrior from the Mythic Warriors line. Created by Keith Poon, the 10-inch resin figurine is a mix of the classic Terracotta Warrrior & the mythical legends of Asian lore. It comes housed in a custom wood box. It’s an edition of 50 and only 25 will be available at the booth. […]

Releases: Jeff Soto – The Deek @ NYCC

Veteran new contemporary artist and occasional vinyl toy architect Jeff Soto is set to release his newest vinyl creation next Saturday, October 9th at NY Comic Con. Hot on the heels of his Seeker figure recently released at SDCC (covered), The Deek is the next release in the KidRobot Black line, a series of one-off, uber-limited figures sharing a common monochromatic color palette. Standing 6.5″ tall and limited to 150 pieces, the sculpt teased by KR looks to be a bolder, perhaps more enraged relative […]

Releases: Luke Chueh – “Black in White (And Red All Over) Figure

Today Munky King will be releasing a new variant of Luke Chueh’s (interviewed) “Black in White” figure (first seen at Comic-Con). This version will be limited to 250 pieces and is hand painted to be extra bloody (hence the “Red All Over”). Along with the figure, there will be original paintings and an exclusive print release as well. The signing will from 4-7 pm with a release party running from 7-10pm, but get there early if you want one of these babies, as the line will be long. […]

Releases: KAWS – “Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket” Figures

When we first confirmed the imminent release of KAWS’ Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket figures back in June, we didn’t have any details yet as to the price or date of release. If you remember, these were first seen at the fantastic retrospective the Dos Sequis drinking artist put on at the Aldrich Contemporary in Connecticut. Well, now word is these will be released at the OriginalFake store in Tokyo on August 28th for approximately $200 with other associated retailers getting their shipment a couple weeks […]

Teaser: Kaws – “Wood Companion”

We’ve heard rumors of a wooden Companion figure from KAWS for a while now but haven’t seen any images… until now – from the recent Dos Sequis video! In these studio shots, the figure appears to be approximately 10 inches tall, but no word yet on general release details. We guess that KAWS fanatics, who have already been waiting for the Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket figures to drop, will be adding this to their want list although this is sure to be limited and expensive. […]

Showing: Daniel Danger – “they will take it back” @ Gallery 1988 (LA)

One of the most skilled artists out there in capturing atmosphere and emotion in their work, Daniel Danger (interviewed), opened his latest solo show last week at Gallery 1988. The body of work entitled “they will take it back” included originals, ink works, new prints, and a new art toy (seen perched precariously on Daniel’s head). More photos after the jump…

SDCC ’10: Sculptures, Toys, and Figures

As we previewed prior to Comic Con, the weekend event featured the unveiling of some fantastic sculptures and figures by artists we all know and love, including those by Jeff Soto, Travis Louie, David Choe, Shepard Fairey, Yoskay Yamamoto, and Luke Chueh. SDCC was your opportunity to nab exclusive pieces, like the Ghost Seeker and a rare colorway of Mr. Spray. It is always great to see and be able to purchase three-dimensional artwork and these editions were affordable enough for almost any fan. See […]
