JonPaul Kaiser – Moby Dick Themed Custom 3” Dunny

14-5224-JPK 14-5248-JPK

JonPaul Kaiser shares with us another one of his amazing commission customs! Here we have a Moby Dick themed piece on Sket-One’s 3” Sketchup Dunny. JPK was able to capture the Pequod as a ship-in-a-bottle, as the great white whale descends into the deep ocean. It’s hard to believe he fit all of this onto a 3” Dunny. Bravo JPK!

While Artist Johnny ‘KMNDZ’ Rodriguez is best known for his compelling paintings, he has recently been customizing toys and enjoying the process, perhaps more than he first expected.  Inspired by the experience of painting on platform toys, he’s put together ‘One of One’, a group custom show with an impressive roster of artists, many of whom are accomplished painters or street artists who have either never customized toy or done so only in passing:

64 Colors, Alice Yeh, April Elliot, Attaboy, Axis, AX2, Blamo, Bob Dob, Bryn Perott, Camille Rose Garcia, Catcult, Cikcuk, Codak, Defer, DrilOne, Ekundayo, Elizabeth McGrath, Erik Siador, Fr. Bill Moore SS. CC., Gabbie Custom Art, Germs, Graham Curran, Gris Grimly, Jill Ricci, Joe Scarano, Jophen Stein, Juan Thorp, Kingsley, KMNDZ, Leecifer, Marco Zamora, Mari Inukai, Max Kauffman, Mike Maxwell, Miss Mindy, N.C. Winters, Paris, Phidias Gold, Rick O’Brien, Rusty Jordan, Spankystokes, Super Cooper Berella, TAG, Tasha Zimich, Terror Visual 1984, The French Fury, Tom Pathe, Urban Medium and Yoskay Yamamoto

One of One will open  at the dA Gallery in Pomona on Saturday June 14th (6-9 PM) during the Second Saturday Art Walk.  For the latest info and previews, check out the show’s official facebook page.

Seen: ‘Star Wars Legion’ -- A Custom Stormtrooper Helmet Show

96_legion_starwars

Lucasfilm, Disney, and Neff have put together ‘Star Wars Legion’, a Stormtrooper Helmet exhibition running  at Robert Vargas Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles through Star Wars Celebration Day, May 4th. The show features  hundreds of mini Stormtrooper helmets customized by artists from various Disney divisions and street artists selected by Neff. 

Vinyl Pulse checked out the exhibition on Thursday during the Artists Reception.  We were impressed with the imagination and creativity on display.  Yes, there were the expected military themed pieces, but they were easily outnumbered by pieces that reimagined the iconic helmet as a truck/car cab, or as food, cartoon characters and more. The work is impressive considering that artists had roughly just three weeks to work on their pieces and many are not used to working with 3D canvases.

If you’re in LA and looking for a fun art experience, drop by Star Wars Legion on Saturday, 5.3 (2-6 PM)  or Sunday (Noon – 4 PM).

Fuller Designs - Fire King Panda

p1

Almost something coming out from the World of Warcraft comes the Fire King Panda by Fuller Designs. This piece was commissioned by a fan of both Fuller Designs and Angry Woebots, as they provided the Panda King figure, which I’m sure both parties had a hard time painting/letting go. Fuller even left the arms unpainted to add to the effect of the Fire King Panda. Both the Sun Hat and weapon were sculpted out of ave’s apoxie and this custom even features a strap made of real leather. Some fine quality stuff going on here! More photos after the jump.

antfarmer 4  Olive_logos_front2

Art Whino’s “Art Without Borders” custom group show is coming up quick, which means more submissions will be trickling out onto the net! On the left we have Kasey Tararuj’s “The Ant Farmer” custom Dunny, which so happens to be her very first 8” Dunny custom and boy did she do an excellent job! “This is The Ant Farmer! Tricky little anteater.  What better way to never go hungry than to manage your own ant farm. There's a reason his rosey cheeks are so chubby and plump!“ We also have Tasha Zimich’s 7”custom Foomi, which is a Hedgehog that goes by the name of Olive. It just so happens that Doctors Without Borders plays a big part of Tasha’s life and is something she feels strongly about.

This should be an amazing show with a great cause. Anyone in the area should definitely check it out. The opening reception will take place at Blind Whino on Saturday, March 22nd from 8-11PM.
