WHO-R-U? custom group show at Mothership Gallery!!!


MikeFX has teamed up with Playful Gorilla and the Mothership Art Gallery to host the “Who-R-U” custom group art show… and now, it’s not focused on the legendary band The Who… rather, a new blank figure from MikeFX. All of the fantastic pieces featured in  this show are customs on Mike’s ‘WHO-R-U’ blank resin figure, a pretty amazing figure by itself, but what the artists did to this piece really make it shine.


The cast of characters includes: MIKEFX, ABSURD TOYS, RENONE, NAPTIME NOAH, BIGC, DR BARBADOS, PLAYFUL GORILLA, WASTED TALENT, MR MARS, OBSCURE, JAMS, NERVISWR3K, HUNGRYGHOST, RYAN BENITO SOTO, FETTUP TOYS, SHINOBI STINKS, BOY IN THE CORNER, SERG AND DESTROY, GOREILLA, RICH STROHMEYER, KINDNUGGETS, WIREWOLF, RICK SANS, TWENTY HEADS, THE 3D HERO, FIREHEAD DESIGNS, DADS CARTOONS, JOE WHITEFORD, BIZARRE O VISION, BROBOT TOYS, INPRIMEWETRUST, DERF BUNNY, THAT RED KID… yeah, talk about a ton of talent all under one roof! This is going down tonight, Saturday, August 26th at Mothership Gallery in Philadelphia… be there or be square!

Joe Whiteford’s “Cotton Candy Critters” from Zectron & Eric Nilla!


The classic “Critters” character, inspired by the film of the same name, were sculpted by Zectron and then cast in resin by Eric Nilla… A truly memorable combo of talent, but add the painting talents of Joe Whiteford into the mix and it becomes unforgettable! In what is being called the “Cotton Candy Critter” edition, limited to what appears to be 15 pieces, these hand-cast and hand-painted works will be available in the near future directly from Zectron, so make sure you follow him on Instagram (@thelastzectron) for updates.

RECAP: The Roadkill Custom Art Show at Wrong Gallery Taipei!


I am continually impressed with the creative concepts and clean shapes of twelveDot‘s sculptures, so when the third exhibition to focus on his “Roadkill” design was announced, I got excited. Inviting an array of artists to alter and/or hand-paint the figure produced by Pobber Toys, this “Roadkill”-centric show did something the others before did not: it paired one of twelveDot’s “APO Frog” creations with each “Roadkill” piece! Having taken place at the Wrong Gallery in Taipei, I wasn’t lucky enough to actually attend this event, but I was able to get photos of the show from the gallery, which are the basis for my newest article on CoART Magazine, which can be read HERE.

Richard Strohmeyer’s “Spice” Versions of “King Creepy”!


Having discovered the 6-inch tall “King Creepy” resin figure by BroBot Toys, artist Richard Strohmeyer began hand-painting copies of the works at night after working as a teaching assistant in an Autism program by day. Giving a surreal twist to the already strange, gremlin-like forms, Strohmeyer’s four finished one-of-a-kind “Spice” versions — the pinkish “Drone Spice”, the corpse white “Mummy Spice”, the blue-tinted “Spirit Spice”, and the festively green “Xmas Spice” — whose toothy grins are accentuated by their glowing eyes. Available now directly from the artist’s online shop for $75 apiece, these definitely are not for the faint of heart.

Klav’s “Pinhead” Creeping Death Robot on Huck Gee’s The Blank!


After getting insights recently into the future plans of Kevin “Klav” Derken (see full article HERE), I’m not surprised to see him launch a shop titled Creeping Robot Death Club. Nor to find out that it’s big debut piece is a one-of-a-kind modification of Huck Gee’s “The Blank” form, Derken having transformed the 4-inch tall resin figure with its skullhead into a rusty, robotic creature oozing coils from its jawline. With more ‘custom’ works forthcoming, including the previously announced “Skunny D” and “Skunny M” pieces, it really feels like Derken is blossoming fully into his own artist… And make sure you browse around creepingdeathrobotclub.com, which is already stocked with amazing pieces from Derken’s past as well as the stunning new “Pinhead” piece.
