Do You Experience Feelings of Dread in Your Scullery or Parlour?

In anticipation of the new movie Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the Sugarmynt Gallery in Pasadena is mounting a Ghostbusters themed art show.

“Yes Have Some” has been curated by the fantastic Pop Artist Chogrin and brings together an eclectic mix of artists and toy makers to present their own versions of the iconic paranormal eliminators.

Opening Nov 20th, 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM
At Sugarmynt Gallery, 810 Meridian Ave, South Pasadena, CA 91030, USA

For this show I have created a significant new Mechtorian piece :
Frank Podmore – Ghostbuster (named after a pre-eminent 19th century paranormal investigator).

Vinyl toy parts, Epoxy, Acrylic, Steel, Brass, ABS, Polyester resin, Copper, Oak, Lead, Glass, Rubber, PVC, Vintage Camera and Watch Parts, Found Objects.
12.5” tall on base

He will be available to purchase from the show. 
You may like to contact the gallery beforehand if you are interested in adding him to your collection.

This is a unique opportunity as I very rarely make pieces based on existing pop-culture characters. This may well be the only Ghostbusters related piece I ever create!

Imperial Lotus Dragon Group Show at Dcon

ADesigner Con this year Broke Piggy will be hosting an amazing custom toy art show featuring the amazing Imperial Lotus Dragon vinyl toy created by Scott Tolleson.

From 12th -14th November at Anaheim Convention Centre in L.A. you can view the dragons at Booth No. 413. Sadly I cannot be in attendance this year.

For the show I have created: The Expanded Clockwork Lotus.

A complex “exploded model” version of the dragon in the style of a Victorian teaching aid.

A slight departure from my usual style, but very much in keeping with my aesthetic.

Vinyl toy parts, Epoxy, Brass, Acrylic, Rubber, Vintage Clock Mechanism, Vintage Winding Key, Antique Wooden Base.
H 13″ D 13″ W 10″

He will be available to purchase from the convention.
