3DRetro at SDCC: Debut of Felipe “Uh-Oh” Vinyl by Juan Muniz

The wait is over.  3DRetro will debut the new Felipe “Uh-Oh” vinyl art toy from Juan Muniz at SDCC.  Based on the painting of the same name, the piece features Muniz’s signature character, Felipe, holding a rather dangerous group of “balloons”.  In talking about the concept behind the character, Muniz explains that “We often wear a second skin in daily life or at work and the ‘skin’ doesn’t reveal much of our true self. The ‘mask’ I draw is a blank stare and depending on the situation, can convey humor, doubt or irony. There is Felipe, dragging his bleeding heart, looking back to ensure it’s still there as if it’s a security blanket. There is Felipe, sitting on a chunk of earth with an anvil tied to his fishing pole. And there is Felipe, looking down at the bullet that moments ago pierced him, then popped out his back, walked around to the front and held up a sign that reads, ‘I’m sorry’.” 

Limited to 200 pieces, the Felipe “Uh-Oh” viny (9.5” from foot to the top of the balloons) will be first available at the DKE/3DRetro booth [#5045] for $55.  Juan Muniz will be signing at toys, prints and other goodies on Friday (7.10) from 3-4 PM and Saturday (7.11) from 1 to 2 PM.
