" Slow Rider" and "Tambo Inca" - Customs by Kevin Gosselin

Kevin Gosselin recently posted a few of his latest completed customs on his blog: a Custom 3" Betso Dunny and a Custom 5" MadL. Known for his great sculpted pieces, these two latest customs by Kevin are indeed some awesome sculpted pieces.

The "Slow Rider" is a custom 2011 Betso Dunny. The Rabbit rider comes complete with a canteen and sleeping blanket, just like any proper rider. The rabbit rider looks similar to the smaller rabbit Kevin created inside of a backpack for the Most Wanted 3 Dunny Series. I like how Kevin incorporated the Betso Dunny in this custom, rather than just completely recreating a whole new figure, you can still tell that the Betso Dunny is still within the custom.

The Custom 5" Madl, titled "Tambo Inca" (Inca Fort), is another sweet sculpted custom. The detailing in all of the steps and brickwork is amazing. The Inca styled face and added moss-like texture just adds to the great detail yet to be seen in this custom. I'm sure the recipient of this custom will have tons to look at when he/she gets the custom in hand.

Both customs seem to be commission pieces and therefor not for sale. For any collector wishing to have a commission made by Kevin Gosselin, Kevin always seems to be taking commission requests. Keep in mind the list may be quite long. Also, Kevin is working on getting the Kozik Bust he created for the Kozik show at 1AM Gallery, mass produced in a sense, sometime next year. So if you are going to request to be added to Kevin's commission list, be patient like the collectors of these 2 customs and you are sure to not be disappointed.

Custom 3" Fatcap by PJ Constable

If you don't know who PJ Constable is, get to know this teen's art. PJ Constable is a young and talented UK based artist who continues to amaze people, including myself, with his unique and colorful characters. Getting invited to group shows left and right, PJ has a very unique style in my opinion. I first met PJ at Kidrobot London, during the 2012 Dunny release. A collector as well, PJ was there with his family for the artist signing and dunny series release. PJ brought with him a few customs he was working on, blogged about here, which turned out to be great art pieces once he was done painting them up. His recent completed work happens to be a 3" custom FatCap commission for another cool artist, Mike Die. The colors and sculpt on this piece look quite nice and I love the little details like the cracked pot and real toothpick. Mike is one lucky collector.

 As PJ continues to grow and create great pieces of art, he will undoubtedly be tasked with a long commission list, so get at PJ while you still can. Hopefully, he has time to squeeze you in. Keep in mind that PJ is still in school and creates in his spare time. I look forward to seeing more of PJ's work in the future, whether it'd be a part of a group show, custom commission or maybe even a solo show down the road, only time will tell.

Motorbot's Toy of the Month Club!

Motorbot, of Deadbear Studios, recently released a Toy of the Month Club. This is basically a pre-order for 12 (or maybe even more) different resin sculpts that will be created by Motorbot. Each subscription will include an exclusive colorway and in some cases, an exclusive figure not available to the public. Each figure is set to ship on the 10th of each month and the club is limited to only 10 Subscriptions, starting the month after a subscription is paid for.

I personally love the idea of artist subscriptions, however, I can see how fronting a bunch of money can be a bit taxing on anyone's budget. Motorbot's Toy of the Month club is actually really affordable. Considering, that most of Motorbot's typical figures sell for $20 plus shipping, the subscription cost of $270 (which I believe includes shipping) for Motorbot's Toy of the Month club is great offer for any collector!
