Exceptional Collection Liquidation - Luke Chueh Comicon Exclusives

Not the sort of thing you typically see on Tenacious Ninja, but maybe you should...

This 11 piece lot of Luke Chueh artifacts is exceptional for featuring lots of signatures, convention exclusives, and very rare customized items. There is also what appears to be a 1/1 test pull bear head of some kind in clear and red resin.

In my estimate as a toy store owner, and collector, this lot is worth at least twice what the seller is asking for. -Gavriel Discordia


The Cement Skullhead Blank by Huck Gee

Opposites are everywhere. Light and dark, Black and white, Tall and Short, Sane and Republican party. Huck Gee released a beautiful crystal clear Skullhead Blank, which of course led to a pitted opposite creation, The Cement Skullhead Blank. Created using (most likely) actual cement(indeterminate ratio), The Cement Skullhead features pits and holes and for all intents and purposes, is the polar opposite of the clear Skullhead. Priced at $150 each, plus shipping, these filthy creations will go on sale April 4th, at 12pm PST. Limited to just 75 pieces, the lead time is around 6-8 weeks for shipping. Who knows, maybe a nicely colored cement custom creation will come calling quickly after collectors clean cut brown boxes open, revealing the splendor that is the Cement Skullhead Blank.

Skullhead Blanks by Huck Gee at ToyConUK 2016

With ToyConUK 2016 right around the corner, artists are making final preparations for the trip across the pond. Huck Gee is making the trip back to his motherland and he is bringing along some colorful Skullhead Blanks as ToyConUK exclusives. Orange, Blue and Pink are the color choices for ToyConUK, with Orange and Pink being made available at the actual convention. The Blue Skullhead Blank will only be available at the Toy Chronicle hosted ToyConUK 2016 After party, thus the blue hue. In addition to the colorful resin to add to dusty shelves, Huck will also be bringing a batch of new Skullhead Punk T-Shirts. Hand Colored prints, watches, banners, stickers and a few customs will also be available at ToyConUK. For those attending the convention, be sure to arrive early as many of the items Huck will be bringing will most likely sell out.

Damaged Goods by Luke Chueh

Inner State Gallery in Detroit Michigan presents "Damaged Goods", an art show by Luke Chueh. From Luke Chueh:
As a working artist, I'm constantly dividing my time between the development of my studio art and the production of various products inspired by that artwork. I'm always searching for ways to re-interpret my studio work and take advantage of collector trends, whether it be limited edition prints, or "art toys".
In case you didn't know, Inner State Gallery is a part of the Detroit based print producer and distributor 1xRUN. For many years, I've had the pleasure of working with 1xRUN, and I've seen them grown and diversify. For my upcoming "Damaged Goods" show, I want to create a show that I could only do with Inner State / 1xRUN. For that, I plan on taking advantage of the tools and technology that they have on site. From silk screen reproduction, to hand embellished prints, to laser cut editions, this show will truly push the boundary of the kind of art work I've created and explore the merging of art and commerce.
Opening on April 22nd, 2016 and running through May 13th, anyone in the Detroit area should make the way out to Inner State Gallery and join them for the opening reception on April 22nd. For those who won't be in attendance but still interested in purchasing any art, be sure to get on Inner State Gallery's preview list.
