Josh Mayhem presents his addition to the custom Bellicose Bunny show at Toy Art Gallery entitled "The White Rabbit w/ Deathray". This creature from the Wonderland Forrest of the future is late for a very important date.... with whoopin' some ass! 

Heavily armed with a Deathray, helmet mounted machine gun, and transforming pulse cannon (which actually does transform!) you may just welcome a decapitation from the Red Queen if this unpunctual bunny has you in his sites.

This newest addition to Josh Mayhem's Askew Rangers is sold and accounted for, but you can find more of this custom toy series available at here.

Josh is currently available to take commission work and can be reached through his website here.

mfc custom by Carson Catlin- a tribute to his father- to be auctioned

From Carson Catlin:
My father, Melvin, was diagnosed with Stage Lung 3 cancer in late August of 2011. He was given a regimen of Chemo and radiation. A few long months later, he was told he was in remission. Unfortunately, our joy was short lived as he developed a gnarly case of Pneumonia. After months of failed treatments, he couldn't go anymore and had to be admitted to the hospital.
I got to go home and spend a solid week with my father - for that I am very grateful. The day I got back home to Kansas City, I spoke to my father and his spirits were high. He told me he would be getting out that week which put me at ease. The next morning my mother called me to let me know that my father had a convulsion in the middle of the night and was now on a ventilator. It was discovered then, that he had 3 brain tumors. He left us a week later from septicemia.

mfc - his initials - is a 7" munny created to symbolize my fathers cancer that eventually took his life.
The right lung is visible (location of the initial tumor) and so are the three circles on the back of the head (tumors in his brain). Everything radiates from the tumors representing the septicemia. He is colored with a southwest blend of colors as my father was fond of them.

"mfc" will be auctioned off at the "Shave to Save Art Auction"
The event will take place in the VML Gallery on the third floor of 2020 (aka third-floor kitchenette) with an art preview between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. and silent auction between 6:30 and 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, and complimentary snacks and adult beverages will be served.
