One-Eyed Girl's entries into November 1 The Burton Show at Rothick Art Haus

"Little Pee Wee," a Custom Micro Munny who i just imagine making that dumb famous laugh.

One of my favorite new/up & coming custom toy artists, One-Eyed Girl (Kasey), writes to us:

I have some new pieces to share!  These guys are all going to be on display and for sale at Popzilla Gallery's "The Burton Show" opening Nov 1 at Rothick Art Haus.  Some of my favorite all time movies are Tim Burton so i was thrilled to be a part of this show. 

Two Beetlejuice inspired pieces.  Easily top 5 favorite movies ever, and i want to make every character from the movie.  Started with only two, but maybe in the future there will be more!  "Betelgeuse," a Custom Mini Munny with a sandworm stuck to his head.  And "Harry The Hunter," a full sized Munny body with sculpted head and clothes.  You know, the shrunken head guy in the waiting room!

"Martian One-Eyed Girl,"  a 3D 8"x10" painting of easily the best and creepiest character of Mars Attacks. Sculpted with Magic sculpt and a glass eye.

INCOMING: Gary Baseman Wild Girls: Beverly Edition

... a little backstory, care of Gary's recent newsletter...

Who are the WildGirls and ChouChous?
In the Forest of ChouChou live the WildGirls, ChouChous, and demons. While the demons create chaos in the forest, the WildGirls are forced to live a life without any joy or freedom. The ChouChous offer their love and attention to the WildGirls, taking away negative energy and hate from them by absorbing it and oozing it out as Creamy Gooey Love from their bellybuttons.

Once this happens, their bodies melt away and they are left with nothing but their heads. The only way a ChouChou's body can grow back is if he is kissed by a girl of pure love.

These prominent Baseman characters were specially featured in the exhibition, "Hide and Seek in the Forest of ChouChou," shown in 2007 at Billly Shire Fine Arts in Culver City, California. They have since appeared in Baseman's sketchbooks, paintings, and even live art performances.

The regular colorway available to retailers like us- the Beverly Edition seen in these pics- is available for preorder right now in our shop here for $70.
