SDCC Exclusive!!! "Bones" by Mike Egan

The great and powerful DKE Toys will be releasing artist Mike Egan's "Bones" exclusively at San Diego Comic Con.  This is Egan's first toy and this edition will be limited to 80 pieces at $45 each, however it seems the future may present us with more than one colorway.  You'll find this little guy exclusively at the DKE booth -  #4728.  "Bones" is 8" tall, crafted from japan-made vinyl, and hand painted/manufactured by Luke Rook, Lullubell, & Grody Shogun.  Not to mention sculpted by Pretty In Plastic! 

We really had a lot of fun working with this little skeleton and in doing so were also inspired by Egan's work.  He is a Pittsburgh based artist and "has spent time working as an embalmer in funeral homes", which has influenced the art  that he now creates!  Pretty interesting & to learn more about Egan - check out his blog.

Fun with Lite-Brite

Fresh off their stellar performance at the MTV Movie Awards, Fun. will be tearing it up tonight at the House Of Blues, LA.  The show is sold out, but if you are feeling adventurous the seating is also first come first serve. The concert is all a part of AOL Music’s original 13 part web series titled Signature Sounds presented by T-Mobile.  It culminates with tonight's free concert at the HoB.

For Scale!

But more importantly we made the Lite-Brite instillation piece for tonight's show!  For the project we worked with Whale Film, and in record time we crafted 200 plastic pegs for the larger than life Lite-Brite board.  Each individual peg is over six inches and our pegs come in six different colors.

And for those of us who aren't kids any more, but still love our toys - here is a fun parody of FUN.
