Amy Sol recently posted a snap from her meeting with Munky King featuring a few toys as well as her lovely WIP sculpture.  Munky King also reposted the image.  Could we see an Amy Sol vinyl art toy from Munky King? The outlook looks quite bright :)

While she’s known primarily as a painter, Amy has been creating sculptures alongside her paintings for a few years now. As with her paintings, many of her sculptures feature animal people such as the piece above. For reference, see photos of the completed piece as well as some of her previous sculptural work below. We’re looking forward to seeing what form transpires from the new collaboration.

Gary Baseman x APPortfolio – Ahwroo (6.11)

U: Corrected Release time. 7 PM PDT on 6.11.

It’s been while since we’ve seen a new art toy/sculpture from Gary Baseman.  Happily, the talented LA-based painter has collaborated with APPortfolio to bring his Ahwroo character to life as a polystone figure. Featured in many of his paintings, the beast contemplates a skull in its outstretched paw—perhaps the object of its affection or a moment of reflection.

Limited to 300 numbered pieces, Ahwroo stands roughly 8.2” tall (21 cm) and features a hand-painted design with varied textures for the fur and on the face. APPortfolio will release Ahwroo on Monday (6.11) at 7 PM PDT  for $340 from their web shop.

“It's Ahwroo, my vicious character that is so hungry for affection, he can draw blood and kill the object of his affection.”  [Press]
