The Saddest Devil
Toby Dutkiewicz is the Art Director for a well-known "construction toy company", and he also runs a metal record label. His day and night jobs melded together in this latest project - The Saddest Devil. Keek (aka The Saddest Devil) is sorta the mascot of Toby's record label. Look for the figure to be released in Jaunary of 2008. And those of you who like a backstory...keep reading.
Not so long ago, in a place that is closer to most of us than we would like to believe, there lived a small demon named Keek. Keek spent most of his days performing repetitive and menial tasks in the bowels of the earth along with the other demons his age in hopes of one day becoming a true Devil. When that day finally came, Keek was summoned to meet Lucifer himself. “The time has come for you to grow into a true entity of evil,” Lucifer said, and with a quick prod of his pitchfork, Keek was overcome by a sense of invincibility and confidence. “You will be sent to walk the earth and create chaos and fear amongst all men.” As the last word left Lucifer’s lips, Keek was suddenly plunged into darkness. He regained his senses to find himself standing upon the vast landscapes of the surface world.
It took only a single day of observation to cast Keek into a deep depression. It quickly became clear that Man himself had already created far more chaos, fear and destruction than Keek could ever have caused on his own. Depressed and mortified by what he saw, knowing that his task had been taken from him before it began, Keek walked aimlessly into the darkening world, doomed to forever be…the saddest devil.
