Blaine Fontana x Kidrobot Black – Domestic Hunger (1.17)
Kidrobot Black starts off 2013 with Blaine Fontana’s ‘Domestic Hunger’. The 17” sculptural piece features a red bird perched on an almost completely jet black carnivorous bird house, oblivious to the danger that lurks next to him. The work is at once familiar Fontana (bird, tree branches) and surprising (predatory bird house). The piece can be displayed by hanging or by wall mounting.
Limited to 200 pieces, Domestic Hunger will be released on Thursday January 17th 2013 @ kidrobot.black.com and select retailers for $500.
Huck Gee – Wolf Rider
After seeing the print release, we had a speculation of an actual custom figure to be made in the near future of the Wolf Rider. Now that speculation can finally be put to rest, as Huck Gee’s latest newsletter brings some excellent news. Complete with made from scratch wolf, expert rider, with long staff sword, flag, and teddy bear, the Wolf Rider could be yours for $1600 each. They are also limited to 10 pieces, so be sure to send your inquiries to sales[at]huckgee[dot]com.
"Beneath the masks lie expert warriors, handpicked and rigorously tested by General Shirokuri himself. The wolves they ride are massive, fearsome, wintery beasts with minds as sharp as their claws and teeth. The bond is a lifelong commitment, paired when the wolf is still a suckling pup. They spend the rest of their days together. Eating, training, sleeping, the two become one. There is no distinction between beast and rider once joined in battle,communicating through a complex system of touches, motions and whispers, allowing them to be as effective in the roar of a battlefield as when prowling an enemy on padded paws in a hushed forest." - Chapters of the North, Volume III - Mahotsukai Hoohige
