Smurf Munny

Kidrobot is having a Munny custom contest this month, so I decided to use a Munny I got for X-Mas, and do a simple custom. At work I've been working on the Smurfs Cereal, so staring at Smurfs all day gave me the idea. I had bought a crappy Mighty Mugs rip-of Smurf a while back on clearance for $2, So I chopped off his head, and gave the Munny a hat.
I based the design off the Purple Smurf cartoon/comic, so he'd be a little different than just doing a generic smurf. Voting for the Munnyworld contest ends this month, so please vote for me HERE!

3B Art Show

3B is an art show organized by Autumn Society head honcho, Joe "Chogrin" Game. For the show, each artist would do 3 pieces each relating to Back to the Future, Beetlejuice and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. All of my pieces were done with spray paint and stencils as usual.
My Back to the Future piece is based on the scene where Marty puts the headphones on his father to wake him up. I titled it "Eruption," after the Van Halen song that plays in the walkman.

My Beetlejuice piece is of the creepy little priest that Beetlejuice tries to get to marry him and Lydia. I've titled it "I Now Pronounce You..." Since their wedding ceremony was never completed.

For my Bill & Ted piece, I wanted it to look like a gig poster for their band, Wyld Stallyns. Instead of a canvas, I painted it on the backer to a poster frame, which will be reassembled for the show. It's titled "Wyld Stallyns Rule!"

The show will premiere at 7pm on Thursday, May 5th @:
Gallery 1988 Venice
214 Pier Avenue
Santa Monica, CA 90405
