Tristan Eaton – ‘Dreamland Mickey’ Proto
On Monday we gave you a break down of Tristan Eaton’s new releases planned for his debut appearance at STGCC (9.1 – 9.2). While we mentioned that he was working with Julie B of Pretty in Plastic on a 15” Dreamland Mickey resin sculpture based on his OG 6 foot x 8 foot original painting, we had only a quick teaser image for you. Now, here’s an exclusive first look at a near-final (95%) prototype of the sculpture. While there’s some final tightening left to do, the sculpt is sick – nicely blending in the various elements (fish, rattlesnake, women, insects) from the painting into a realized 3D form.
Take the time to look through the full set of turn-around shots (after the jump) – different angles highlight a different aspect of Tristan’s interpretation of the iconic mouse. The design plays a bit off a public front-facing appearance and a more closely guarded personality. From the front, Mickey is mostly jovial with subtle cues to something amisss including the perhaps overlooked rattle on the left foot. Turn the figure around though, and the head of the snake on his left-hand reveals masked, darker intentions. Limited to just 20 solid resin figures, Dreamland Mickey will be available for pre-order at STGCC [$1250 SGD / $998.96 USD]
