September 2006. Custom BUD for The Bomb Project Show, TX
$ : Currently on display @ RocketPop
Designed for Rocket Pop's 'Bomb Project' show. My first attempt at a custom toy involved my collection of broken toy scraps from throughout the years & a Marvel Superhero Showdown Human Torch mini-figure. More images below.
Ostensibly, it's an exploration of the word 'meatspace' coming into common usage relating to actual, physical, real life things, instead of the ever-dominating digital realm, and the disconnection and isolation that it actually creates. But really? I just like painting meaty things.
