Happy Halloween! The Ravenous becomes available online tomorrow, Tuesday October 31st on all hallows eve. Sitting on nearest branch and calculating the perfect way to catch the eye of his prey, the Ravenous figure is a carefully created piece to bring a new feel to vinyl toys. We asked the artist a few questions about this piece and his art to better understand the symbolism and feeling of this piece, check it out!
Some people who say the vinyl art scene is dead, what would you say?
I don’t think its dead, it might be a little stale. There was a period of time where feeds were full of reinterpretations of existing properties. Yes it will sell and you will make some money from it but it doesn’t push any boundaries. To each their own and I don’t want to step on any toes but I feel there should be more risks taken with unique ideas. It doesn’t always pay off but that’s the stuff that will grow the scene. I think its a perfect time to step in and make a name for yourself if you can offer something truly original. I also see a lot of shade towards mass retail toy companies making vinyl figs but I think it should be seen as a opportunity to reach millions and bring them into the scene.
Tell us something your fans might not know about you…
