Too Many Robots!

Tmrsm2

Walt Disney television animation has given the greenlight to Attaboy's creator driven short cartoon Too Many Robots!  Based on Atta's upcoming kids (and for adult kids) book (published by Baby Tattoo Press).  The 5 minute short has just begun production and will be
airing sometime this summer on the Disney Channel.  The ridiculous art and absurd humor of Attaboy (and the music of a yet to be revealed superstar) will hit TV screens for the first time ever in color (no black and white for you mister).  The short will be chocked full of odd characters, bad dancing, fruit
punch, robots, and of course, toast.

From the Island of Misfit Toys looks at how fine artists are manipulating toys to create sculpture, video, and music that push the boundaries physically, emotionally, or conceptually to address larger themes of consumerism, the surrogate, and death. Through exaggeration of scale, excessive  use of material, and do-it-yourself methods, this exhibition introduces a set of artists who are blurring the lines between creative fields and taking toys to humorous, thoughtful, and poignant places.

Grady’s Bridge Troll Munny

Grady1

At first, I wasn't a big fan of the Munny...after seeing what some artists have done to customize this thing...I'm beginning to change my opinion.

Here's what Joe Grady had to say about his Bridge Troll Munny custom:

I based this Munny off of a Bridge Troll Trexi I designed a few months ago. I started by cutting a hole in the face of the Munny to accomodate the eye sockets. Then I sculpted the features using Super Sculpey. Once he was baked I painted him using acrylic paints, and finished him off with a coat of Krylon matte clear spray paint. I also used some Future floor polish to get a high gloss on the teeth and nalis. This Bridge Troll Munny was alot of fun, and I hope everyone enjoys him.

Who is Mirus?

Protorevealed1

Dave Quiles and Outta My Mind Creations have introduced us to their Mirus sculpts.  This might be one of the most unique figures to come down the pike.  The arms are attached and swivel using magnets and Mirus also have little mirrors on their faces. 

Dave had the following to say "I then started thinking about the mirror and what it represented so
I thought to make him outwardly reflect the way people sometimes act,
so I gave him wings and hidden horns with a hidden mirror underneath to
reinforce the idea that it's about looking at oneself."

There are so many versions to choose from, I'm not sure which will be my favorite!
