Love this post! For their third episode in the Time & Space Artist Series, Vans OffTheWall.tv focus on Mr Cartoon. Nicely done!
This two-part series captures the spirit of Mr Cartoon as he hits up the streets of Tokyo talkin' all that is ink, LA culture, inspiration and why his style strays from color. I like that chap a lot. Hey Mr Cartoon, you think you can pencil me in???? Check it out.

Need more? We're told that you can expect 20+ custom UAMOUs, a large run of X-Ray UAMOUs (which just might see wider release), a brand new mini resin figure, an exclusive colorway run of Ugly Unicorns as well as some custom ones. Yup, that's a LOT of sweet vinyl. Plus, there just might be some of that 2D art we've heard so much about as well!
Anyone living in Japan that might want to go shopping for me?
Entitled "Ice's Kiss Mammophant," this is a Labbit and Dunny custom piece. The paint job on the Labbit's skin is superb, every fold and crease feels completely real, and his eyes are wonderfully expressive. The "ice" formations are perfectly done… enough to express the cold without being so over-bearing that it hinders the other wonderful work done here. All that sculpted rigging on the Labbit (er, I mean, Mammophant) looks spot on… like "where did he buy that" versus "how did he build that" level. And the little touches, like the imperfect ladder that leads to the Dunny's catapult system, add that little extra realism that a fantasy piece needs.
The Dunny is insanely crafter too, especially considering the little details added… like his belt. Just gaze at the pictures, carefully, and try not to drool. Whoever owns this piece is one lucky dog!
