Stripewok by Little Lazies

Meet Stripewok! Each piece is hand sculpted by Leah Lester of Little Lazies. No two are exactly the same but they are so close to one another that it’s kind of hard to imagine that they aren’t cast and she made 30 of them!!! The 2” figures are signed and numbered on the bottom of the figure and carded in a package she designed and are only $55. Don’t get them wet and don’t feed them after midnight.

Bio: Little Lazies are weird, little, clay creatures made by Leah Lester, a monster maker living in Seattle, WA. How did it all start? Leah was a full time cake decorator who very much enjoyed sculpting out of edible paste for the cakes she created. One sunny day in June 2010 she said to herself, “I want to make a monster for the top of this cake!” So she did just that… Soon after, her friends started encouraging her to create these characters into clay; something that they could keep for a lifetime. So with that, Leah bought some clay and with lots of practice, experimenting, character developing and imagination her monsters evolved into what they are today – the Little Lazies!

Cantina Denizen by Manly Art
You can bet when he sidles up to the bar everyone knows his name. There’s nothing like a hand painted portrait of an old friend. Each backing card is an original painting! All 24 are different portraits of this kindly fellow. Signed and numbered out of 24. $150 and comes with a sparkly turquoise resin figure.

Jason Chalker (aka Manly Art) is a Detroit based illustrator and toy maker. He has done illustration work for Upper Deck and Topps on brands such as Marvel, Mars Attacks, and Star Wars. His Pimp2-D2 action figure line has managed to find its way into the collection at Rancho Obi-Wan and the homes of collectors around the world.

Dark Invader by Buzzard Guts
Sometimes inspiration comes from a bootleg of a rip off of an homage. Buzzard Guts made our Dark Invader dreams come true. Hand cast and painted 3.75″ scale carded figure.  Signed and numbered edition of 50. $65
Illustrated by Last Boss Comics.
 
Buzzard Guts was founded in 1994 as a hand distributed “fan” zine by self proclaimed “artist” and multi-dimensional guru Dain A. Marx who has been creating and exploring alternate universes since the early 70s. Now, Buzzard Guts produces kit bashed hand cast resin figures from a trailer in the woods. These “bootleg toys” of characters from alternate realities feature collaborations from various talented illustrators like Neil Devlin of Last Boss Comics, Ryan Winn of Valiant Comics and maybe one day, you!

Prize Pet by RYCA
Every time I came home with a fish from the fair my mom said, “It’s a trap!” She had to take care of the fish for years! Now you can own your very own little fish head friend and he will happily live in his hand made bubble for years to come with very little effort on your (or your mom’s part). Hand cast and painted 4″ carded figure. Signed and numbered edition of 65. $75
Ryan’s work originally rose to fame through his involvement with the street art scene under the pseudonym RYCA. Over the last five years however, he has developed an ever increasing presence and reputation creating prints and graphics under his own name. Through combining words and images from popular culture, with the materials and techniques traditionally associated with pub signs, he creates nostalgic, playful images that are both accessible and highly technically accomplished.
