Closer Look : Dunny Dunnibal by ilovedust

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013



In anticipation for tomorrow’s release of the Dunnibal Dunny by ilovedust I thought it prudent to take a closer look at one of the most intricately printed Dunnies this year. Dunnibal is the latest 8 inch Dunny figure by English design studio ilovedust (previous 8 inch designs include Zulu Mong from the 3 Bears series and more recently Togo Monroe). Upon closer viewing the printing looks surprisingly clean for so many layers of printing. The most noticable error would probably be where the top parts of the lips connect towards the middle of the mouth, it is very slight on my figure but I can see it becoming a potential problem with others. Other than that I believe you will very happy if you decide to pick one up at your favorite toy retailer tomorrow. If you’re not keen on this blue colorway there is also a red chase version which is hidden in 1 out of every 6 boxes. We will have them available the same time as all other Kidrobot retailers tomorrow at 11AM EDT on Thursday September 26th. Enjoy the rest of the photos!

Brian Butler in Boston’s Weekly Dig

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013


Brian Butler, a participant in our Hanna-Barbarians show, which will be on exhibit until May 17, was recently featured in Boston’s Weekly Dig for his upcoming show, Infinite Scroll in Cambridge, MA at Blanc Gallery. The show is a collaboration with Cody DeFranco and the title is a reference to the infinite amount of information at our fingertips these days. Butler’s drawings in this show are a way to filter and streamline info. into  efficient, quick communication; he likens them to emojis. Read more here.

Brian’s pieces have already sold in the Hanna-Barbarians show (no surprise there!) but there are plenty of other pieces left, so make sure to check out the cartoon-inspired work here.

Camilla d’Errico, contributing artist to the Fonzo Love NY show, shared images of an Android she’s been working on. She also gave us a look at her workspace during the process of painting. Hmm… I spot the Android and a Dunny too…!

And if you’re looking for something for Valentine’s Day, Camilla’s style lends itself well to this holiday. Have a look at her No Ordinary Love Bust, available now in our online shop.

camilla1From the artist about the figure: ‘It’s the visual interpretation and expression of my feelings for my ‘one and only,’ so you can imagine how exciting it is that this particular piece was chosen!’
