Here's a company we haven't talked about in a little while...Circus Punks!  I've been a fan of their stuff for a while now (I'd definitely lump them in there with the trendsetting designer companies). 

They have released a limited edition (40 pieces) Thomas Han Circus Punk.  It's 15" tall, signed and numbered and should retail around $60.  For wholesale info, contact DKE Toys.

MINI REVIEW: Maori Punk

Img_1722
Img_1723

Joe Grady designed the newest Circus Punk - named Maori Punk.  You've probably seen plenty of Grady's designs around, but this is his first CP.

As far as the two designs, I always dug punks that utilized both sides of the canvas, so that's why I created a separate back design. The front of this punk shows a Maori Male's facial tattoos called Ta Moko.  The back panel is actually a decorative pattern they carved into their wooden oars.

The body fabric is different than traditional Circus Punks, and they are also using a new printing process. This is the second punk produced using sublimation printing, which is used as an option for artists who have designs that go beyond screen printing limitations.

The Maori Punk is an exclusive that was released at the Black Friday 13th at FlyOver Gallery in Madison, WI.  It was released with two different fur options...the one above and one with black, brown and green fur.  Joe said that there are only 3 left at FlyOver...so best of luck picking one up!

Main

Squink's Chris Booker set word of their first attempt at customizing a few mini Circus Punks.  Being the first time working on the blank Punks, he wasn't sure how it would turn out.  Eye Up! and Bozzy definitely have a circus-like feel to them.
