First seen as a prototype at Five Point Festival in June, Tara McPherson’s George—a lovable vampire—will soon be available for pre-order from Martian Toys. Based on the artist’s original painting, George’s Halloween Portrait features the 10” George vinyl bust and two positionable Mr. Wiggles balloon ghost friends (4”). While the ’art toy’ genre has grown considerably and become increasingly varied, strong translations of original paintings such as this new release from Tara McPherson and Martian Toys are greatly appreciated and tie back to the roots of the term.
George’s Halloween Portrait will be available for pre-order with promotional pricing of $200 beginning on Friday (10.25) at 9 AM PDT through All Saint’s Day (11.1) direct from Martian Toys. George is slated to ship in Q1 2020 with a suggested retail of $250.
