Wild Sculpture from Buwon x Gunshotlife(2.4.19)


Korean artist Buwon is known for his impeccably executed resin figures of street-style rabbits with lighthearted, mischievous streaks. His upcoming collaboration with tattoo artist/model Noma Han's Gunshotlife brand brings an unexpected darkness with a bold, dynamic sculpture featuring a terrified rabbit who seems to be melting away. The 'two sides of a story' style piece, also features a screaming skeletal figure on the back with medusa-like tentacles and 'stress' neatly imprinted on his forehead.  As strong as his previous work has been, Buwon has outdone himself this time with a captivating, compelling limited-edition.

Buwon will release the apparently un-named collaboration (Edition of 10) on Monday (2.4) at 2 AM PST via email with further details to come.  Given the limited run, it might be a good idea to DM the artist ahead of time for additional info.

Seiji Matsumoto x Mighty Jaxx — 'Smoking Lady' Polystone (2.2)

SeijiMatsumoto_SmokingLady-1sJapanese illustrator Seiji Matsumoto creates curious, cute and charming character work, often with heavy, curved black outlines. In between illustrations of all manners of cute animals and nameless people living lives ordinary and extraordinary, he has from time to time turned his attention to celebrities including his take on the Kate Moss Supreme campaign (2012).

In collaboration with Mighty Jaxx, Matsuomoto's illustration gains weight and dimension with the upcoming Smoking Lady polystone figure (8").  Translating his art to 3D poses the challenge of how to address his prominent use of heavy black outlines.  In this case, Smoking Lady drops them while retaining his curvy, streamlined shapes, lines and distinct eye treatment.   Limited to 200 pieces, Smoking Lady will be available for pre-order on Saturday (2.2) at 6 AM PST for $159 with free worldwide shipping.

'Work Dog' Kickstarter Campaign by Vincent Scala


If you follow Vincent Scala on Instagram, you've likely seen his Work Dog short comics featuring the character's office misadventures often involving his infuriating computer. Now, Work Dog is about to jump from the page to the shelf as Scala's next art toy. The new vinyl toy design celebrates the trials and tribulations of office work. Wearing a forced smile and typical work attire, the toy  should make a great empathetic office toy/companion. Digitally sculpted by Vin DiResta, Work Dog stands 6" tall and feature an articulated head and arms.

To make his new vision a reality, Scala has launched the Work Dog Kickstarter campaign to raise the necessary production funds.  This is the artist's third toy funded through Kickstarter and follows his previous Lucky Cat and Mickey Monster figures. Rewards include an enamel pin and sticker combo ($15), a step-up package that also includes a 6x6' collection of the comics ($30), and of course a fully-painted Work Dog vinyl ($35). Finally, the deluxe package gets you everything for $50.

Kikkake -- The Auspicious Guy (1.27)


Kikkake Toy debuted The Auspicious Guy sofubi figures in an unpainted mixed parts edition at DesignerCon back in November. The elaborate figure featuring a child-like character in formal traditional garb takes on new life (and meaning) with the upcoming first painted editions dropping this Sunday (1.27).  With the addition of the skull drum sticks, it turns out that the curious smiley face attached to the front of the character is in fact a drum—perhaps played to change fortunes.

The three painted editions (blue, red and orange) are a sight to behold—full of life and the seeds of fantastical stories.  Kikkake Toy will release these first painted editions via his online store on Sunday (1.27) at 6 AM PST.
