Josh Mayhem's “The Askew Rangers” custom series

We get submissions on a daily basis to show of work of artist from around the world, and most recently we were contacted by Josh Mayhem as he recently completed a line of custom vinyl figures that he is calling “The Askew Rangers”... and as you can see from the shots above, these customs are "Heavily armed creatures from the forest of the future battling for supremacy in a world where survival of the fittest is the only law of the jungle". Deep rooted with vibrant colors and crisp lines utilizing simple paint foundations as complimentary backdrops to an overwhelming display of weaponry and accessories. Josh uses a whole array of techniques to complete each and every piece... from pieces of scrap metal, wires from vintage electronics and weaponry accessories from the creator's massive collection of vintage action figures, as well as some form of a working component like working lights, spring loaded and moveable devices, and removable elements that evoke the versatility of an action figure with the visual aesthetic of a vinyl toy. Josh kinda just busted onto the scene... and shows no signs of stopping. Hit up his site HERE for many more photos, and keep your eyes peeled for more from him in the near future.
