SUCKPAX: Action Art Cards Series 2 is about to Drop!

http://suckadelic.com/Realms2.html

Conceived and Designed by the SUPER SUCKLORD, Suckpax takes the
art of the simple trading cards and flips it on it's head, stuffing each
box with irony, challenge, and incredible underground art. Engineered and
produced by Sidekick Lab, Suckpax features the Old-School wax wrappers of
yore as well as that shitty card stock we all grew up on before trading
cards got slick. Featuring original one-of-kind sketch cards and multiple
high-concept special inserts, Suckpax is truly Modern art in Vintage
packaging.



Also my SW sketch cards will be available for auction HERE

Custom Burgerbuns Show at Super7


Stoked to announce the up coming show "Funbuns - A Burgerbuns Custom Art Show" at Super7 at their new address of 1427 Haight St. in SF,CA on Sat Nov 20th. 

I asked 35 of my favorite artists to bust out a custom of my new vinyl toy Burgerbuns. He is Mascot-Scale at about 6". He is produced by my bros at Super7 and sculpted by my other bros Gargamel. I designed the turn arounds for this badboy and Brian Flynn figured out the very unusual and awesome position of Burgerbuns arms. He turned out amazing! We showed him off at the SDCC 10 at the Super7 booth with the 1st release of the blank powder blue version to match my first release of my vinyl toy Hollis Price (also produced by Super7 and sculpted by Gargamel). He has 3 points of articulation, at arms and waist.

There will be some amazing customs at the show and we are also releasing the 1st  painted colorway of Burgerbuns (2nd release)!

SEE YOU THERE MAN  


Seattle superstar Le Merde is launching the first painted version of his new mascot-scale vinyl figure, Burgerbuns, with a custom figure art show! Infamous toy veterans and newcomers alike will flex their artistic might on the weird loner cat, Burgerbuns.
