This Friday (Jan. 25), Scott Tolleson will be releasing his sofubi Deadbeet figure in a rich purple colorway, reminiscent of a familiar shade donned by a loveable, fast food-eating blob. The release of this figure may be my favorite colorway yet. Deadbeet is a break from Tolleson’s usual argyle-clad characters but that hasn’t discouraged his fans from snatching up the previous releases. Painted by Nebulon5, Grimace Deadbeet will be available at 10am Pacific here for $120 each. Limited to ten pieces, this one is going to go fast! Deadbeet hopefully has opened up Tolleson’s work to new fans and encouraged existing fans to take notice of this multi-talented artist! You can also check out Tolleson’s work in the Fonzo Loves NY show currently on display at mph.
Oh, and did you check out the packaging?! WHAAAAT?!
We previewed custom Fonzo a few days ago and I admired the colors he’d chosen. Today we have the final result to show you. The colors appear a bit more blue than than in the preview image, which appeared teal, but I am still enjoying these blue tones mixed with the reds. This is one cute pup! See him and the other custom Fonzos this Friday at the opening of Fonzo Love NY from 6-9pm at mph.
Check out Scott Tolleson’s recent post to Instagram – his work in progress shot of a custom Fonzo for Freak Store x mph’s Fonzo Love NY. I am absolutely loving the teal tones mixed in with the red. Excellent color choices! To see this and other custom Fonzos, come to the opening on Friday, January 11 from 6-9pm at mph.
The middle of the week has me checking in with artists who either carry art toys with mph or have been involved in mph art exhibits. So, let’s have a look at what’s going on with a handful of MPH artists.
Rabid, Wild & Docile artist Ben Walker wrote an informative article on his blog about designing a booth space at cons, specifically using his experience at SDCC. With 6 years of con experience under his belt, Ben gives a humble but worthwhile look at planning and implementing a head-turning booth experience.
