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!

Buzzard guts has two pieces for this show. The first is an 80s throwback. 
He says “In the 80’s I rented a lot of videos from the local video store. I’d get a lot of different things but was always looking for movies that were more like Star Wars. One day I thought how cool would it be if all movies were like Star Wars. Within that thought a universe was created.” From this alternate reality Buzzard Guts presents a slice of nostalgia representing a charming tale of first love between an eternally optimistic Jawa and a sophisticated Astromech droid. Say something smart, say something clever, say something real, say utinni!

Can’t say for sure but this looks to be an r2 dome made out of the top of a Magical Floridian Giant Golfball. And what is that inside, Walt frozen in ice? Hands of our favorite mouse? 
 
Thought long dead, Emperor Cryogenius continues to rule the galaxy secretly from the catacombs of an amusement park shrine he built as a tribute to himself, now more powerful than ever.

Lucky Chew by Little Lazies 
Individually hand sculpted 2″ figure 
Signed and numbered edition of 35 
$55

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.
 
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!

Ryan Callanan a.k.a RYCA has long since been one of the most sought after artists at artrepublic. He burst onto the scene back in 2006 with his Star Wars inspired print, Reservoir Troopers (red) that sold out at in astonishingly quick time. In May of the same year thieves broke into the gallery and stole the same piece, believing it to be a Banksy. The artist told us at the time that he was quite chuffed with the mistake. He graduated from art school in 2002 and was inspired to create his first print, Ona Islam after visiting the acclaimed London exhibition of Banksy works, ‘Santa’s Ghetto’ in 2006. Other sources of inspiration include cult classics, the Star Wars franchise, Pop Art, and the Renaissance. uDrawing inspiration for his career as a 3D sign writer, RYCA incorporates a wide use of materials including resin and glass into his sculptural pieces. With his in-depth knowledge of materials and craftsmanship he is currently working on new projects with hip-hop song lyrics alongside numerous public commissions. RYCA made headlines when he realized his ‘Acid Cup’, a handcrafted replicate of the World Cup trophy, to coincide with the 2014 tournament in Brazil. Big Beat DJ and Brighton hero Fatboy Slim loved RYCA’s sculpture so much he took one on tour with him as he played a host of huge gigs around the country. He has exhibited worldwide and enjoyed a number of highly successful solo shows, also collaborating with a number of well respected artists including Ben Eine, David Walker and Stik.

RYCA said that Andre never got a chance to wear his own shirt. Here the famous meme is now recycled as a figure. Reminiscent of the 90s Hasbro WWF figures.

UK Street artist RYCA had such a huge success at SDCC with Wampapi that he had to make more BIG STUFF.

Stay Fre$h is a hustler from the mean streets of 80’s NYC, after getting blasted by four guys in ’84, he never goes anywhere without his vest.

Finally Josh Mayhem has created a piece of art in the 3.75” action figure format.
Blown Away Trooper by Josh Mayhem 
Hand painted customized vintage 3.75″ carded figure
Signed and numbered edition of 50 
$125

 

 
Bio: Josh Mayhem’s lifelong habit of collecting children’s playthings has fueled his passion for transforming said toys into objects d’art. Embracing both order and chaos as inspiration points, Mayhem’s mixed media ‘art toys’ tend to be created in two contrasting styles: intricate, detailed assemblages comprised of Japanese model kit parts, and more free-flowing, expressionist sculptures. Among his best-known pieces are those constituting his “Blown Away” series, in which mass-produced forms are covered in strands of resin and layers of acrylic paint to create gravity-defying drips that give the impression of the work being deconstructed by a strong wind. The popularity of this direction has led to Mayhem being nominated for Designer Toy Awards, participating in TRASHed: Art of Recycling at Coachella Festival, representation by the Corner12 agency, and continuing partnerships with the premiere worldwide creator and dealer of limited edition art toys, Kidrobot.

STR WAS: DTH VDR by Mark Todd


Last year we got more attention about Mark Todd’s Chewback figure than just about anything else. Here is his follow up. Mark hand sculpted the piece, it was cast in resin and then he hand painted each one and crafted a cape and saber. The card back is signed and numbered 
and is printed on a risograph which is the same type of machine his zines are printed on. Signed and numbered edition of 30. $55

 
Instagram @mark_todd
Bio: Like many kids raised in the 70’s, Mark was influenced at an early age by Star Wars and comic books. Unlike many kids, he grew up just a few miles from the Vegas strip, it’s neon and glitz looming over the city. He graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and currently lives and works in the Los Angeles area with his wife, artist Esther Pearl Watson, their daughter Lili and two French Bulldogs, Mr. Pickles and Gherkin.

Starkiller Coffee by Killer Bootlegs

Hand cast and painted 3.75″ scale carded figure.

Signed and numbered edition of 50

$55

Bio: Born in the 80s, Killer Bootlegs artist Peter Goral’s childhood was saturated with action figures, cartoons, and classic movies. When he was 4 years old, his father showed him a bootleg copy of The Empire Strikes Back. Little did he know that this would start Peter on the path to being at the forefront of the bootleg toy movement. Today, Peter’s artwork is highly sought after by collectors and has been in galleries worldwide. He has inspired and mentored countless other resin artists to follow in his footsteps. What started as a hobby collecting toys has grown into a full-time career for Peter, letting him do what he loves best every day, play with toys.
