"You Missed a Spot" Custom 8" Dunny by Jeremy Regan

Jeremy Regan, artist from Wicked Skinny Studios, created a custom 8" Dunny for the upcoming G40 Art Summit happening in Washington DC. The G40 Art Summit will have a month long exhibit with this years theme revolving around the creation of multidimensional pieces. Artists are encouraged to expand boundaries and grow possibilities. Jeremy Regan decided to create a custom 8" Dunny which features a head that can be rotated to display 2 different faces, while the body also features 2 sides. Titled "You missed a spot", this custom 8" Dunny was created using oven bake clay, acrylics, inks and glow in the dark paint. Essentially, there are 4 ways to display the Dunny, night or day. In addition to the custom Dunny, Jeremy also modified a Kozik Monger and some vinyl eggshells to complete the overall theme of the piece.
For those in the DC area, be sure to head on down to Blind Whino and check out the G40 Exhibit between September 14th and October 4th, 2014. There are a ton of other artists who contributed to the exhibit. For more info, check out the Art Whino post here.

25 Cent Wonders Prints by Patrick Ballesteros

Patrick Ballesteros always has some wonderful affordable prints for sale. For SDCC 2014, Patrick released a new series of prints called "25 Cent Wonders". A lot of younger generation kids may not understand the reference but there was a time when 25 Cent ride type machines existed outside of every supermarket or major store. Now a days, these machines can typically be found in some malls. These machines cost 25 cents to ride and would typically light up, make sounds, and move back and forth, capturing the attention and imagination of a young one sitting on the short, yet entertaining, ride. Patrick created this series as a salute to these 25 cent wonders, using famous characters and vehicles. Each print measures at 6" x 8" with rounded corners and is priced at only $8, plus shipping. To make these prints more enticing, Patrick provides a promo code for an additional discount on the 25 Cent Wonders prints. Just enter the promo code "WONDERFUL14" in the appropriate box during checkout. Be sure to check out all the 25 Cent Wonders up in Patrick's online store, there is something for everyone.

The extremely limited edition part-resin / part-vinyl Madl measures 7 inches high and available to only 10 pieces worldwide with one original sculpt.
