"Keep Watch" Dunny Kidrobot x Mishka

Part of my healing process after my transformation has been collecting and customizing vinyl action figures. Some I reimagine and totally make an entire new creation others I leave alone, it depends.
I seem to fined great pleasure in just having these objects on display in my studio for inspiration and comfort.
The thrill of trying to purchase these small works of art due to their limited release is comparable to big game hunting in the bush.
Once you get your hands on them it is totally up to you weather you want to admire it as it is or, think of something to do with it?

The mascots created by Kidrobot in collaboration with PRODUCT (RED)® x Keith Haring Foundation to fight against AIDS in Africa are great figures to customize and add the face of the artist who’s characters are all over the figure.

The other fantastic looking figure the Dunny is another collaboration by Kidrobot x MISHKA that I mentioned in my last post I went to Brooklyn for to pick up. This one is so cool looking that I promised myself I will not touch it mainly because of the way I acquired it. (Lol)

Some might say ‘Huh?’ “What does terror hustle really mean?”
How I explain it is that;it is a person that is so terrified of being unsuccessful or have a fear of living a meaningless life expresses extreme motivation coupled with extreme anxiety!
Now that I have explained it I can move forward to telling a story about my adventure to New York City.
I always must maximize the time I spend there because of obvious reasons and so I must plan properly in order to enjoy myself plus, recognize opportunity when it presents itself; New York is like that,you gotta go with the flow.
For the first time in over a decade I rode the subway to Brooklyn to pick up a special item I pre-ordered at this years NYCC not realizing that the retailer was not in Manhattan. Then I made my way back home but first stopping at the Jonathan Le Vine gallery to support Dose Green and check out his new paintings.
On my way after getting lost in lower Manhattan for about a half hour I finally made it to the Chelsea section where the gallery is and I magically run into an artist I haven’t seen in over twenty years.
I recognized him right away and called out his name as he passed by me and, I was correct it was Sergio Klafke from Sao Paulo Brazil looking almost the same as he did when we last met.
Then the celebration began inside the gallery illustrated below when I ran into Wild Style film producer Charlie Ahearn and had a short respectful conversation with the man himself Dose Green who gave me thanks for the support.
