Mikie Graham's custom "The Temptation of Hug" for Blamo Show at TAG!

Blamo Toys collaborator Mikie Graham unveals his "The Temptation of Hug" piece, which is his contribution to the custom "Hug" show at Toy Art Gallery. Done with Graham's usually sense of humor, he crafted a completely original 6-inch tall 'Mega Hug' that was to scale with the normal Hug figures… and then he placed two hovering hugs — an angel and a devil — upon the Mega Hug's shoulders. While not the most original joke, the craftsmanship is superb… including four points of articulation in the unique Mega Hug's arms!

Blamo Toys HUG Custom Group Show” opens on Saturday, December 15th from 7-10pm and runs through December 30th, 2012 at Toy Art Gallery’s showroom located at 7571 Melrose Ave., Hollywood, CA 90046.
