Today on Proto Monday we’re excited to reveal the first look at a proto of Camilla d’Errico’s upcoming Kuro vinyl figure in production from newcomer Inner Sanctum. Kuro, the evil yet adorable character from Camilla’s Tanpopo book series, has been released previously in plush both in 6” and 2’ forms but never vinyl. In fact, this will be Camilla’s first original vinyl figure. Shown here as a resin proto, the 6” limited-edition figure, sculpted by Daniel Ritthanondh, is due for release in the Spring of 2011 in a few different editions. He’s looking quite cute and seems to have made the jump rather nicely.
If you’re attending NYCC (10.8-10.10), you’ll want to know that Camilla will be officially unveiling Kuro at the ‘Art to Merchandise – How to Make More with Your Art’ panel to be held at the ‘con on Friday October 8th 2010 from 12:15 to 1:15 PM in Panel Room 5 (1A17-18). Also, be sure to drop by her table (C11) in the Artist Alley starting on Friday @ 1 PM through the close of NYCC on Sunday (5 PM) for a nice selection of merch (books, prints, comics, and more) as well as a brand-new print.
