KIDROBOT MUNNYWORLD MEGACONTEST ENTRY


ELEVATE
ELEVATE

Titled: ELEVATE

Inspiration: Freedom from the mold through the elevation of creativity. Sometimes it gets violent.

Design: Both of these figures started out as identical blank white Munny’s. This is my first attempt at sculpting movement and conveying an action. Aside from the blank white head used for the base of the Elevated Munny, it’s all clay. His flowing garment was machine sewn and can be re-positioned to emphasize movement. His long sword or “Guan Dao” is 15 inches in length and the blade is made of hand carved aluminum. Not only does it look wicked it serves the purpose of keeping the Flying Munny elevated. That’s right, no wires or fake photoshop and yes, it is sharp and sick as fuck…

As for the Bisected Munny, his purpose was met with a bitter end. Yet even in his simplicity I didn’t want to butcher him, but instead chose to surgically release his from his humble mold. He is the exclamation point to a violent elevation of creativity.

I just submitted my entry into the Kidrobot.com MunnyWorld MegaContest. I’ve been lurking over there seeing what the artists from around the world have to offer and have seen a lot of really creative pieces. I’ll be posting more images of my contest entry in the NA Studio section. If you are interested in seeing what it takes to create the two Munny’s in my entry then be sure to check those images out. Guaranteed DOPE!

Don’t forget to check it out on the Kidrobot.com site. And “LIKE” it if ya dig. You may have to find it on page 3 or 4 but it’s definitely on the site.

GREEDY,
Newborn Apple®

N.A. STUDIO CUSTOM VINYLMATION: DEADSTOCK

N.A. STUDIO CUSTOM VINYLMATION: DEADSTOCK

In the case of vinylmation collecting it’s not too far a stretch for collectors to use the word “DEADSTOCK” to describe their highly prized sealed cases of Park 1′s and Urban 1′s. The design for our “DEADSTOCK” custom vinylmation attempts to illustrate the parallels between the culture of sneaker collecting and that of vinylmation collecting…

It’s no mystery that Vinylmation collecting and trading continues to grow with each new set release from the Disney Design Group. With each new set comes another opportunity to go on the hunt, to be the first to blind box a chaser or variant and if nothing else but for the thrill of opening just one more box…

KIDROBOT MUNNYWORLD MEGACONTEST’S “MOST INNOVATIVE”

I know I’m a little late posting this considering the fact that it’s been about a week since I received word that my MunnyWorld MegaContest entry, ELEVATE, was the overall winner in the “Most Innovative” category. It’s not “Best of Show” but I can’t hate on the overall winner, his work was dope and really [...]
