Yesterday we featured Star Wars-inspired indie toys to be had at DKE Toy’s booth #423 at the coming New York Comic-Con 2016 (Oct 6-9) - today we take a look at their Simpsons-themed releases from Kill! X Virva Peikko, and PHX, AND a handy “Cheat Sheet” to help plan your purchases!
DKE TOYS PRESS: "This is the debut figure of our favorite doughnut eating icon by PHX. “D'OH Boy” is approx. 4" tall and each piece is a hand painted cast resin figurine numbered out of 30 pieces worldwide. The card back measures in at a whopping 8.5 x 11. $65 each
PHX (pronounced F-I-X) is the brainchild of art duo Kayden Phoenix and Charlie Phoenix. This deviant, gritty, mashup, bootleg toy machine is grounded in Los Angeles and heavily influenced by the entertainment industry. PHX takes a sideways look at pop culture and smashes 2 worlds together, making it art. Come get your PHX!
"What do you get when our favorite bad kid gets mashed up with an animal from the sewers? Yup, Bortman. Hand cast and painted 3" resin figure on card. Edition of 30. $65
The Katerpillar is the collaborative works of artists KiLL! & Virva Peikko. Before joining forces in 2012, KiLL! was making resin, plush, and vinyl figures while Peikko was doing sculpture, fiberglass, drawing, painting, etc.... . With their powers combined they produce life-size fiberglass sculptures, comics, trading cards, concert posters, resin figures, and much much more. Both KiLL! & Peikko have had works published in print and have exhibited in solo and group art exhibits all over the world. When not making art they battle hoards of feral cats.... and their dark thoughts."
