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 […]

SDCC ’10: Frank Frazetta Conan Painting Sells for Record Price

Although this unfortunately occurred two months after the artist’s death, the above painting, “Conan the Destroyer”, just sold for $1.5 million – a record for a work by Frank Frazetta. The piece was sold by the estate in San Diego, during this year’s Comic Con. Franzetta was 82 when he died and was a legend among fantasy artists. He produced work for comic books, album covers, and movie posters, among others and has his own museum showing his work. In recent years, his children have […]

SDCC ’10: Omi : Unmasked Party @ Bar Basic

On Thursday night, Munky King unveiled their newest product, the Omi mask, with a release party at Bar Basic in San Diego. Of more interest to us, was the live painting on larger replica masks that went down at the event featuring Yoskay Yamamoto (interviewed) , Joe Ledbetter, Aaron “Angry Woebots” Martin, and David Flores. Take a look at more pics from the festivities and the completed pieces after the jump…

SDCC ’10: Travis Louie – “Uncle Six-Eyes” Bust

So, it looks like that full “Uncle Six-Eyes” figure (covered here) that was in the works from Travis Louie (interviewed) has been converted to a bust. The prototype from Big Shot Toyworks can be seen at this year’s SDCC but that’s not the only thing Travis has in store for his fans. He will also be releasing a second volume of his postcard collection with Circus Posterus and will be revealing his design for their upcoming skelve figure at the booth. Of course, he will […]

SDCC ’10: Yoskay Yamamoto – “Screaming For The Sunrise” Prototype

Yoskay Yamamoto (interviewed) has almost completed his latest vinyl project with Munky King. The incredible six-inch figure is based on his painting “Screaming for the Sunrise” from his “Hello & Goodbye” solo at LeBasse Projects last year. From what Yoskay told us, the reason it took over a year to design this figure is due to the intricate detailing that was demanded of the figure (i.e. the flames & snout). Numerous prototypes were created and the final product looks like it is worthy of being […]

SDCC ’10: David Choe – “Munko” Figure

When AM visited David Choe’s (featured) secret lair several months ago, we not only got an advance peek at his recently released monograph, but we also got a first look at his Whale “Munko”. Check out our close-ups of the prototype. The toy being produced by Good Smile Company is set to be released this week at the San Diego Comicon (SDCC) through our friends at Giant Robot. The figure comes in 11 colorways in 3 unique sculpted bodies (+1 chase colorway). Even better news […]

SDCC ’10: Jeff Soto – Seeker

The Seeker from Jeff Soto, an art toy from Bigshot Toyworks that we’ve been following all along its production process, is finally ready for release. We first heard about the toy from Jeff on one of our studio visits, saw a prototype at last year’s SDCC, and finally saw the finished product at his solo currently showing in NY (covered). Now comes word that one of the colorways (looks like a beautiful white to clear fade), a Hi Fructose exclusive and limited to 50, will […]

Signings: San Diego Comic-Con 2010

San Diego Comic-Con 2010 officially kicks off this Wednesday. One of the things we’ve always enjoyed about the convention is being able to chat with some of our favorite artists or for those instances when we’ve been too awe-struck, simply get a sketch or toy signed. This year’s roster has us just as excited. Be sure to arrive at least a half hour before the signing is scheduled to begin as there will definitely be lines. A schedule of the artist signings we’re excited about […]

Releases: Shepard Fairey Mr. Spray Vinyl Figure

Hot on the heals of his blowout solo in SoHo (covered), Shepard Fairey has announced that his Mr. Spray is finally being released, after we brought you a first look at the figure when we visited his studio in 2008. Mr. Spray, originally conceived of in 2004 as a 50’s-era advertising mascot, will be rendered in 3-dimensions by acclaimed vinyl toy masters, STRANGEco. Standing 11″ tall and fittingly bundled with a mini Andre the Giant stencil, the iconic character will be produced in four limited […]
