Rat Finks Revenge

Just received my copy of "RAT FINKS REVENGE, The Custom Monster Collection" book from Tornado Design. This amazing project brought together the work of 83 contemporary artists - including Glenn Barr, Dave Burke, Daisuke Maeda (Fudemae), Dave Higgins, Mark Mothersbaugh, Michael Roberts, Chris Ryniak , Rockin' Jelly Bean (including myself - just to name a few)...each providing a reinterpretation customization of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's most famous character, Rat Fink. The Petersen Museum in LA, just exhibited the work along with a retrospective of Roth's work - check it out if ya get the chance - the show is up till June 3rd 2007.

I did this design a while back for Wheaty Wheat Studios' 2006 Comicon event - however the only way to get one was if you went to San Diego. Recently Wheaty Wheat has posted this shirt in their store for purchase (The store includes other product from Jeremy Madl, Tado, Chris Lee, Andrew Bell, Brian Taylor, Kathie Olivas and Phallic Mamary.) Here is a link to their store - Wheaty Wheat Studios Store


Just received my advance copies of the book Dot Dot Dash (Designer Toys, Action Figures and Character Art) from German publisher Die Gestalten Verlag. I was invited from the editors to contribute any and all character art related to the vinyl toy industry. Dot Dot Dash's quality, design and fresh concept, blew me away + the book is massive (259 pgs, Hardcover). I was able to contribute my Wheaty Wheat Studio's vinyl toy releases...(Release date: TBD 2007) - of my characters: Ink-Slinger #5, and The Boiler + a custom I did for Kidrobot's 1st Munny Show. This book is the start of many, many releases to the public based on my work - 2007 is going to be great! You have to get a copy - a great addition to your library of art books...Here is a direct link to purchase on Amazon.
