If you’ve been following the pin-game as of late, you may recognize this particular figure by Rolling Death Maui. Introducing the Resin Titty-Shaka figure, an iconic design from the Hawaii brand, which spawned from Nate Robertson’s sketching of a pair of boobs on a shaka sketch on a light table at a tattoo shop. The rest was history. They’ve created pins, stickers, patches, you name it. Now the time has finally come from a 3D edition. This piece was produced by Silent Stage Gallery and ‘Umi Toys Hawai’I’ and stands roughly 6” tall and limited to 100 pieces. You can find them available HERE for $120 each. Uncensored photo after the jump!

Buff Monster – Artist Edition Can Signing + Pink Mister Melty Concrete Drop (4.27)

unnamed

Buff Monster will be at Low Brow in Brooklyn on Thursday (4.27, 6 PM) for a double header event. First up, he’ll be signing his Montana Artist Edition Power Pink cans. If you missed out on the online drops, this is your chance to score a signed can.

In addition to the spray can signing, Buff Monster will also release the first Mister Melty Concrete editions in both 5” (ed. of 10) and 7.5” (edition of 5). These signed and numbered pieces are painted in Power Pink (naturally) and feature consistent distressing throughout the edition.  These are follow-ups to the uniquely painted and distressed debut concrete pieces created for Melt With Me back in February.   If you look carefully, you’ll see that the two sizes feature different sculpts—the 7.5” has an exaggerated, ‘toony sculpt while the 5” has a more subtle ‘art’ treatment.  Half of the Pink Mister Melty Concrete pices will drop at the event and half will be released at 7 PM (4.27) from BuffMonster.com.
