I was recently asked by my friend Yis to customize a blank vinyl figure for his toy release show at Jinxed (here in Philadelphia), and of course I debated between tons of possible ideas. I couldn't help but want the toy to be plush (instead of vinyl), so I decided to paint it as if it was patched together out of scraps of fabric. I like the thought that someone had all kinds of gaudy pieces of things lying around, and decided to breathe some life into it. I had a lot of fun trying to decided what to do in each section, mixing up the designs and textures.
Anyway, the show is going to be a lot of fun, good friends and lots to see. Sneak a peak at Brad and Adrienne's pieces before the event.
