If you follow Vincent Scala on Instagram, you’ve likely seen his Work Dog short comics featuring the character’s office misadventures often involving his infuriating computer. Now, Work Dog is about to jump from the page to the shelf as Scala’s next art toy. The new vinyl toy design celebrates the trials and tribulations of office work. Wearing a forced smile and typical work attire, the toy should make a great empathetic office toy/companion. Digitally sculpted by Vin DiResta, Work Dog stands 6" tall and feature an articulated head and arms.
To make his new vision a reality, Scala has launched the Work Dog Kickstarter campaign to raise the necessary production funds. This is the artist’s third toy funded through Kickstarter and follows his previous Lucky Cat and Mickey Monster figures. Rewards include an enamel pin and sticker combo ($15), a step-up package that also includes a 6×6′ collection of the comics ($30), and of course a fully-painted Work Dog vinyl ($35). Finally, the deluxe package gets you everything for $50.
