The Kid in a Cat Costume OG Gray Edition Vinyl Figure by ChrisRWK

The Kid in a Cat Costume OG Gray Edition Vinyl Figure by ChrisRWK

Last weekend, Strangecat Toys released this awesome new The Kid In A Cat Costume Vinyl Figure by ChrisRWK! As the artist explained, “Before the robot there was “the kid in a cat costume”. Back in the 90’s I would draw a lot of animal characters and kids in animal costumes. The one I drew and painted the most was “the kid in a cat costume”. Well that’s what everyone called him. He never had a name. Just the obvious description. Over the years he would pop in and out of my work. In most recent years I would revisit the idea more and more.”

The Kid in a Cat Costume OG Gray Edition Vinyl Figure by Chris RWK stands 5” tall and is limited to 100 pieces. It was sold exclusively at StrangecatToys.com for $75 and almost immediately sold out.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy & Fight Club Screen Prints by Matt Taylor x Mondo

Today, Mondo has an awesome double feature of movie posters by artist Matt Taylor for a pair of films adapted from a pair of novels – Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Fight Club! The Blot just learned that for the last ten years, Matt has worked with Penguin Random House on exquisitely illustrated covers for John le Carré novels, and late last year Mondo learned he had worked with StudioCanal on the cover art for the 10th anniversary 4K Blu-ray release, which has not been transformed into a killer new screen print poster for the film!

As for the Fight Club piece, as Mondo explained “Most people know the first rule of Fight Club, but not a lot are as familiar with the 9th rule: When Matt does one Fight Club poster, ask him to do a companion piece four years later for the other main character. Alright, we made that up. Fight us.” Both movie posters will go on sale at 11amCT on Thursday, January 20th, at MondoShop.com via The Drop for $50 each.

Leonardo as The Hunchback reimagines the Turtle as Ygor, faithful assistant to the great Dr. Frankenstein, or so he would have you believe! For this menacing mastermind has nefarious plans inside even more nefarious plans, and he doesn’t even need to hide them up his sleeve – there’s plenty of space on his back. The massive shell of The Hunchback opens to store the many included accessories: brain in a jar, two katanas, interchangeable hands, shovels, bone, skull, and flame effects that attach to the katanas to form torches – all tools in his sinister plans for revenge on the mysterious vampire cult that disfigured him.

“Face to Face” Fine Art Sculpture by Luke Chueh x VINS Gallery

“Face to Face” Fine Art Sculpture by Luke Chueh x VINS Gallery

Check out this beautiful Face to Face fine art sculpture by Luke Chueh, which was just released by VINS Gallery in Taiwan. It is a 11” tall polystone statue and is limited to just 200 pieces (plus 20 APs).  Each piece includes a Certificate of Authenticity that comes signed by both Luke and VINS Gallery. It can be purchased now at VINSarts.com for $770 USD (plus shipping).

“Face to Face” Fine Art Sculpture by Luke Chueh x VINS Gallery

For almost two decades, I’ve employed my characters as metaphors of myself. Whether it’s deep introspective epiphany, or playful pop culture analysis, these characters deftly explore different aspects of my life.

“Face to Face” is about acceptance and empathy. The use of black and white makes it easy to illustrate the opposing values of the white bear and the black bear head it’s holding. That their heads also mirror each other in shape and expression puts into question their existence as opposites, subliminally suggesting they come from the same place. Rather than reject each other, the sculpture communicates a sense of recognition and compassion.

The world we live in feels like it’s becoming increasingly more divided. Political and philosophical conflict tears apart friends and families. My hope is that we can all eventually all meet face to face and realize that despite our differences, there’s room for understanding and goodwill. – Luke Chueh
