Custom Jumping Brains for "Memorys Are Made Of This" by Mikie Graham aka ZombieMonkie

This coming Saturday, 8/18 sees the last art show to ever grace the walls of legendary Los Angles art gallery/toy store, Munky King. It's truly a sad night for toy and art fans world wide... but on the bright side of things, "Memories are Made of This" the last show to be hosted by MK, is a show put together by Super Cooper Berella, celebrating his 13th Birthday! For the show, 50+ artists have created work based on memories from their childhood, and the work is as inspired as the events jaw dropping lineup. For the show, toy customizer Mikie Graham aka ZombieMonkie created two mini Jumping brains customs. One we have already seen; "This Is Your Brain" which debuted at this years Comic Con. The other is a brand new psychedelic inspired piece entitled "Your Brain On Drugs". Although this may be slightly risque subject matter for a 13 year old's birthday, Mikie mentions "my customs come from a strong childhood memory of the stark black and white anti-drug adds of the 1980's. A dark inspiration that has translated into some very unique art toys." Each Mini Brain is hand painted, covered in resin and then hand painted again to resemble a fried egg. These customs are then set to rest in a real cast iron frying pan! Both customs come packaged in a hand crafted box with a removable mini print on its lid. Each egg is also signed and numbered and because this is Cooper's 13th Birthday, Mikie made sure to send yellow egg #13 especially for the show! If you're in or around Los Angles this coming Saturday night, make sure to head down to 7308 Melrose Ave. and enjoy two monumental events: the closing of a historic art gallery and the 13th birthday of one very special young man!
