New Resin Pieces by Hugh Rose: Walrus & Wooden Monkeys

8" Walrus figures by Hugh Rose

I was very pleased to hear from the UK's Hugh Rose the other day- seems he's been busy learning how to prototype and cast his own figures! Hugh's custom pieces are always eye-popping and it's really cool to see him now working on his own designs.

The figures above are 8" and 4" resin Walrus (Walruses? Walri? I'm gonna look that up). The smaller one (above) is called 'Scrimshaw' and is etched and ink-washed in the old-timey traditional whaler style. At top is the 8" Walrus figures with hand sculpted, unique faces and tusks.

Below are Hugh's Wooden Monkeys which are 8" resin pieces, all uniquely painted.

To purchase any of Hugh's new pieces, email him at

Each artist creates the artwork and design for their exclusive Canman figures.

Willo Resin Figure Kickstarter by Kyle Kirwan Now Live

Kyle is a local artist (Brooklyn) who was one of the first artists we hosted in our Super Series Sundays releases- his Mudcat figure sold out! Now he has another resin design in the works: Willo.

This pink exclusive color is available only by backing the Kickstarter. I backed it. 

Support your local artist! Love those horns. So creepy and cute!
