Scrappers – Babe Bunyan + Customs
Babe Bunyan by Portland artist Scrappers is the first toy from Grasshut. Scrappers has painted Babe Bunyan for several years now on whatever surface he could get his hands on. A mixing of two mythological figures, Paul Bunyan + Babe the Blue Ox, the character is a tribute to the Pacific Northwest – the land of the lumberjack. Keeping things local, Babe Bunyan was cast in plastic by PDX-based toy maker ARNE.
To celebrate the impending release of Babe Bunyan, Grass Hut will release several hand-painted customs including pieces from Bwana Spoons, Martin Ontiveros, and Le Merde himself this Friday, June 19th through the Grasshut online store. To get on the list to purchase a custom email the passphrase “I Love Babe Bunyan” to firstname.lastname@example.org.
