Kathie Olivas x Brandt Peters x Artoyz Originals -- Mortimer and Oliver
Artoyz Originals is readying two vinyl art toys from Kathie Olivas and Brandt Peters -- Oliver the Bat Boy and Mortimer the Mortician. A Misery Child reminiscent of the caped crusader, Oliver will be accompanied by two Scavenger Birds (Robins perhaps?). Outfitted with his wide-eyed cowl and his oversized cape, Kathie's Bat Boy seems to embody innocence, a touch of melancholy and the courage to fight for what's right even in the face of long odds. The 6.25" figure will be available in four colorways -- Grey Scale, Purple, Red and Turquoise (editions of 200), for $60 each. Brandt's recurring Mortimer makes a living seeing to the dead, a perfectly normal occupation for a Narwhal. The figure will ship with both a straight razor and bottle of Toxico. The 6" Mortimer will also be available in four colorways -- Grey Scale, Purple, Red and Turquoise [gid](editions of 200), for $60.
After a fairly lengthy hiatus from vinyl, it's great to see both artists embracing the medium again whether it be their recent sofubi toys with Tomenosuke, the upcoming Wandering Misfits minis from Cardboard Spaceship or these new larger format toys.
