Save Trash Make Art

Mickey

Chad Carothers has sent us news about a new project he's working on.  Save Trash Make Art makes good use of what some folks might consider junk.

It occurred to me a while back that with the amount of spraypaint I use for my large mural work, there ends up being a lot of empty cans. Instead of discarding them to fill up a landfill or riverbed I started to save them. At the time I wasn't sure what I could do with them, but none the less kept them around. Well, I figured it out...recycle the empty cans (trash) into something worth keeping (art). Some of these cans have a theme while others seem to become 3D doodle pads for me ,but all of them are now original works of art. The rust, dents, scrapes and bumps found on these cans become an integral part of the artwork adding to the finished product. No two will ever be exactly the same. I am offering these at a very fair price of $45 (shipping included) in an effort to promote keeping things clean. I will be adding more as soon as time allows.

Skulliphant Racer Screenprint

Skulliphant_screenprint2

The Skulliphant Racer print is a limited edition 3-color screenprint on high quality paper.   Measuring in at 13" x 19", the print is available from StupidDevil.com for $25.

About the print:

The Skulliphant Racer is a wonderful insight into the nightmare prospectus of giving a giant ghoulish elephant a high-powered racing car. Imagine! The magic sound of screeching tires! The smell of pointlessly wasted gasoline! The havoc it would wreak!

New Work from El Maz

El Maz has a number of new limited edition plushies available, so we'll let him describe them:

Now that I am back home from the show, I wanted to share
my contributions to the Monster Art Rally show. The plush figures were done in
collaboration with Lina Britton, and they look fantastic in person. The plush
figures are her artistic interpretation in plush format of my characters. They
really raise the bar for what plush figures are (in my opinion) because they
have features like embroidered eyes/facial features and have a very polished
feel to them. I am super proud of what she was able to accomplish with
these.
