Sorry it has been a while, my tweets have satisfied a lot of my blogging desires, also I am busy/lazy.

Jeremiah The Innocent vinyl

This last week I finally picked up my sample Jeremiah the Innocent vinyl figures from Jeff at ATARMS. It was nice to be able to be a part of the project.

A while back I had helped Jeff work out the colorways, we went over Pantone swatches and I did some digital mockups and the physical painting on one of the resin prototypes for the factory to reference. The final products came out great!

For those who might not be familiar, the figure is based off of Daniel Johnston's famous 1983 "unfinished album" cover, you may have seen it on a t-shirt often donned by Kurt Cobain (before that whole explodey head thing he did). They come in green, yellow/orange, pink and white, all very much in line with colors that Daniel uses in much of his artwork. He stands about 11 3/4 inches tall on top of a separate tree stump, and comes in a beautiful box. His eye-stalks are reinforced with wire so you can even pose them! You can pick one up at Toy Tokyo (search for Jeremiah) and some other retailers around the internets / world for around $99, there are a few signed ones on Daniel's site for a little more.

If you haven't seen the excellent documentary "The Devil and Daniel Johnston" I suggest you pick up a copy, I think you will enjoy it.

Twitter's rubbish Andy, give us the erudite writings that will form the basis of future civilisations!

Johnston critter looks wicked. 'The Devil and...' is a great, heartbreaking movie. I certainly won't be getting in a light aircraft with the man.
