2017 has been a year of many artists. Today, we are throwing it back to the Josh Mayhem collection that we did. Here to say a little bit more about this topic is our good friend Chris Holt, aka The Toy Viking…
Christmas has come and gone and now you find yourself all cashed up after you were able to sell those unwanted gift cards and copious amounts of sweater vests. You could invest in cryptocurrency and hope to become an overnight millionaire, or you could instead invest it in a beautiful piece of original art. Josh Mayhem has been adding his signature “blown away” look to Kidrobot’s figures for years and there’s no better time than now to finally have one in your collection. These Labbits look like they got rocked by a resin hurricane and while they may not put your kids through college one day, they’re way more interesting to look at than some binary coin thingys that don’t physically exist. At least I don’t think they do. Honestly, I’ve had it explained to me three times and I still can’t bring myself to move my money out of the stick-on googly eyes industry. Oh they’re funny all right, and I’m gonna laugh all the way to the bank!

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
