Canadian illustrator Patrick Wong presents his latest privately commissioned art toy, entitled Snow Pilot Killa Instinct. The 10-inch tall hand-painted one-off creation "plays off the urban vinyl / graffiti-inspired graphics of the original figure with the addition of the classically styled b-boy Kangol striped hat. Further emphasizing the graffiti and Hip Hop associations, Wong takes up the Pilot marker and snow camouflage military graphic motifs - the Pilot Brand's stripes being the street bomber's weapon of choice and signifying one of the best, sought-after markers in the graffiti canon."
Argonaut Resins and artist Clinton Yaws have teamed up to bring you the first Kings Of Atlantis OG Resin Skull Customs ever. Not many of these skulls were released in the original series a few years ago and there have been requests from new collectors for another run. Clinton Yaws brings his exciting paint style and dynamic concepts to adorn the first 3 pieces in this new release of regular clear tinted and glow in the dark customs.
Those three pieces are the red clear tint Easy Rider, the Blue Ringed Octopus painted over a plain clear tint, and the Dead Scrolls blue clear tint that glows in the dark. These new customs will be available to own in the Argonaut Resins online store today (Friday February 27th 2015) at Noon ET.
Artist Patrick Wong sent along a few photos of a recent commission. This custom piece is entitled "Molotov Deathshead Brothers". It's a custom art toy made from a BIC Plastics "Deathshead" vinyl designed by David Flores.

Mikie Graham unveiled his Dunny Haunted House at his Designer Con booth this past year. And now it's available for you to purchase from Zombiemonkie.com for $2,500.00.
The custom comes with one full set of 18 hand-painted Dunny mini-Monster figures. It features custom lighting effects wired to a custom programed Arduino board, with candle flicker, strobe lights, black lights, and normal LED. There's Black Lagoon Lake featuring a removable clear resin "water" top. Also, it has a chain driven mechanism that pulls "Frank's" platform up and through the opening in the roof.
All of the monsters have magnets that allow them to easily attach to dozens of bases built throughout the house. A removable front door allows you to see inside the bowels of the haunted house. And it has custom made stained glass windows featuring holographic "haunted eyeballs". Both Vlad and Eric's rooms feature removable walls and doors for multiple display options, and Vlad's pile of skulls features menacing red glowing eyes. All of that on a carved antique wooden base.
