VISEone TUBE MONSTER 8" vinyl figure

From VISEone's newsletter:

"Since I started with my tube custom concept (TUBE DUNNYS and others) I was hoping to be able to release my own character dripping out of a tube one day. I worked on many concept drawings and after I developed enough skillz with ZBrush I started to work on my TUBE MONSTER concept in 3D.

Here you see the early stage of the first prototype - some corrections have to be made still before it's aproved and ready for the wax model.

After 3 productions in resin I finally step into the medium vinyl.

The first edition will be the ZOMBIE JUICE which we'll hopefully be able to release for NYCC 2012.
More colorways are on the list and there might even be some exclusive colorways coming up."

Evil Origami - A Dunny Reinterpretation by Chris "alto" Dobson

UK-based artist Chris Dobson, aka alto (www.studioalto.co.uk), has reinterpreted the classic Dunny form in his trademark angular style, under the banner of 'Evil Origami'.

With the 3D-printed prototype pictured here, plans are now afoot for the casting of a run of resin pieces, which it's hoped will be released to the world in the not-too-distant future.

Representing the first peak into the wider Alto universe, more minimalist creations are readying themselves, to emerge soon.
