Seen: Bartholomew Punchyface Release @ GR2
On a busy Saturday evening, Scott Tolleson and Luke Chueh released the standard edition of their Bartholomew Punchyface plush at Giant Robot 2. Their new toy offers a lighthearted, all in good fun look at nerdiness. Produced by 3DRetro, Bartholomew offers a slightly melancholy face and his wedgie in the back just might be the reason.
After some gallery hopping earlier in the evening, I was fortunate enough to get to Gr2 take some shots of Luke, Scott and Bartholomew near the end. In an interactive twist, fans were encouraged to doodle on Bartholomew fliers and then put their masterpieces on the wall. Fans also either chose to wear or were more fittingly victimized with different printed yellow ‘kick me’ style notes.
In addition to the plush, GR2 also offered a two print set featuring one Bartholomew image each from Luke and Scott. As you can see in the shots after the jump, Scott and Luke took turns doodling on some early test runs of the print with some humorous and cool results. If you missed the release, both the plush ($40) and the prints ($50) are available from GR2.
Dunny 2013 Leak
With each Dunny series, it’s just a question of when the designs will be leaked. Dunny Addcits posted this high-resolution image which they apparently found with some clever web sleuthing. While Dunny Addicts posted the image with a disclaimer, we’re confident that this is the real deal. 2013 will feature designs from 14 artists including Andrew Bell,
Nathan Jurevicius, Cris Rose, Jeremyville, DGPH, Jon Paul Kaiser, Julie West, Mishka, Okkle, Sergio Mancini, Scott Tolleson, Ardabus Rubber, Chairman Ting, and Scribe. In addition to the 14 designs shown above, there’s a mystery design (not shown) – and perhaps alternate colors as well. So now that you’ve seen the lineup, what do you think ?
