Jon Knox's custom Deadbeet for Scott Tolleson x Toy Art Gallery Show!

With some stunning simple (but perfectly precise) sculpting and painting, Jon Knox transforms the Scott Tolleson designed Deadbeet into an instantly recognizable Knox character. This custom 7.5-inch tall sofubi figure, made for the upcoming Toy Art Gallery group show specific to the Deadbeet platform, is a perfect example of how a custom should be done: made into something that reflects the artist as well as the original designer. Brilliant, adorable, and sure to be desired by many!

The Deadbeet Group Custom Show will open on June 29th and be on display until July 21st, 2013 at Toy Art Gallery, 7571 Melrose Ave., Hollywood, CA 90046.
Participating artists include: Carson Catlin, DrilOne, Jay222, John "Spanky" Stokes, Jon Knox, Leecifer, Mikie Graham, Nebulon5, PJ Constable, Rsin, VISEone, and many more.
