Josh Mayhem is a busy guy these days with all these shows I see him in. Stunning work once again!

Josh Mayhem presents "Acid Rain" -  his submission to the Spring Forward custom Munny group show presented by Kidrobot LA & BLU DOT

"Kidrobot LA & BLU DOT team up for a custom MUNNY show featuring over 30 artists & designers. Wanting to go beyond the “norm”, Kidrobot LA reached out to over 30 individuals ranging from illustrators, fashion designers, musicians, architects, graphic designers, among others; to bring their “Spring Forward” group show to life.  From fully conceptual, to classically illustrated, each MUNNY is a reflection of the artist’s own take on the forward thinking ideals of  “Spring”.  BLU DOT is a great partner due to their keen eye for design and beautifully crafted furniture; not to mention their awe-inspiring showroom, is the perfect setting for the opening reception and to showcase the diverse stylings of these unique designs."

Argonaut Resins Mini Pharaoh Hound in Final Stages of Development

Argonaut Resins recently sent over images of the development of the Mini Pharaoh Hound, a 5-inch version of the original Pharaoh Hound figure. Above is the final wax stage of the Mini Hound sculpt next to a Mini Tuttz.

Here is a great shot of the full-sized 8-inch Pharaoh Hound (painted) next to the Mini. Eric from Argonaut was sculpting the Mini Hound at Toy Fair in February so that anyone interested in this porcess could watch him work. We covered his booth and the development of the Mini Hound in our special Toy Fair issue of Compulsion Magazine for the iPad.

Above (left to right) are several Argonaut sculpts: little Sucio from our Resin is King Series 2 blind box series, then the Mini Tuttz, the Mini Pharaoh Hound and the full-size hound.

More info on the colorways, pricing and release dates of the Mini Hounds will be released by Argonaut Resins very soon. We recommend you follow their blog closely: Argonaut resin figures always sell out quickly.

Kidrobot Black DigesTED

Amazing piece coming!

Kidrobot Black DigesTED by Kidrobot x Alex Pardee
Something evil lives inside a trusted old friend. Slick gloss looks alien against innocent molded fuzz. Red orbs glow in contrast to dull white eyes. Sinewy arms finished in fists clenched. Patches and scars, once signs of years of love, are evidence of previous horror. Deep inside, a child is trapped. There is no escape.

Limited to 250 nightmarish pieces, each is hand numbered with the artist’s signature engraved on the bottom, and exclusive to and select retailers worldwide.
DigesTED emerges March 28 and retails for $200
