Also I just finished my "Professor Dante- Fire King" sideshow piece....I'll show you the final product at the end...but for now....
2011 Krampus Toy List
1. the Bog Monster by Triclops
Now this is a perfect gift for those naughty little tikes. Nice way to surprise your house guests.
2. Deady Bears by Tom Ashman
Now, no Krampus sack is complete with out a collection of Deady Bears, by my buddy Tom Ashman. Grim and cuddly.
3. Ed Roth inspired Hot Rod for toddlers
Remember the hot rod cartoons of Ed Roth. Well you're naughty toddler can burn rubber down on the shady side of the street in this little brain-mobile. Couldn't find the maker of this contraption but awesome!
Old nasty Krampus would definitely have some of these little darlings all wrapped up an ready to go. I met Beth a couple of years ago in Vermont. I was lucky enough to see her studio and all her twisted creations!
5. Anatomy Toys by Jason Freeny
Ever want to know what makes those cartoons tick. Well Micky, Hello Kitty, Super Mario are on the slab for your viewing pleasure.
6. Chris Sickels' Toys
Chris Sickels' work makes me want to be naughty in the hopes that Krampus would bring me a few of his treats. His work is amazing and just as amazing is the way that his work is photographed.
So I'll leave you with my own offering to Krampus:
I present the amazing
Fire Eater and connoisseur of all things flammable.
He is part of my Carinal Puppet series. He has lots of surprises. Well at least one big surprise.
And of course I made a little video to see him in action. Don't worry, you YouTube junkies...I'll be putting him to lip-synching duty soon enough.
Heres' a basic viddy in the meantime:
