Colus Havenga Q&A on the new Jumper Art Figures
Kidrobot is thrilled to release another art piece with San Diego based artist, Colus Havenga aka Colus. Colus and Kidrobot have previously teamed up for the Ravenous Resin Art Figures, The Hunted 8” Dunny and The Art of War Dunny Series. This time we picked his brain to know a little bit more about what the new Jumper art figures are about, how he creates his pieces and asked his advice on how to keep your head up in a world that is so often willing to push you down. Here is our recent Q&A with Colus about his new figures releasing today at Kidrobot.com:

Is there something in movies, art, or pop culture that you would say influences your art?

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj on release of The Rejects - Dark Chocolate Edition on Kidrobot.com. "I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
