Here’s a look at a new figure created by Okedoki. I really love this figure; the sculpt and paint job bring it to life on a whole new level, making Stevie a multi-layered character.
The artist shares a bit about herself when describing the background behind Stevie which sheds some light on his expression:
“I was going through my drawers looking for something a few months ago, and I came across this unfinished sculpt. Initially, I sculpted this piece while I was going through my cancer treatment. He looks like how I felt at the time, which was “hell”. I think it was time to breathe life back into him, and finish him up. Back then it was a reflective piece, to work out of my system how miserable the whole experience was. Now, my health is better, and I look at him with a different perspective. Perhaps with hope and perseverance, that he can embody these qualities to my collectors. I think no matter what challenges we face in our lives, that we can over come them and through these obstacles, we become stronger.”
