I’ve featured the custom toy work of Squink! before on How Adorrible, but the Sheffield based artist has just released some of the original paintings that were included in the recent issue of Now&Then magazine that featured his work.

It’s really nice to see the more of the unmistakable Squink! style in a different format – his toy customs are hugely popular and always sell within seconds of their release – so if you ever tried to get your hands on some Squink! and missed out, this could be your chance. The paintings are available here and I think they are a bit of a steal for an original!

Squink!’s popularity looks set to soar even higher in a few months, he’s rumoured to be one of the artists featured in the upcoming new series of Kidrobot Dunny toys…

I can’t resist this chance to also include some pics of one of his recent custom 8″ Dunnys. It’s one of my favourites of his recent pieces – the blow up valve is a nice touch. Cool idea, nicely executed!

New York artist and illustrator Jason Freeny unravels the mysteries of what a My Little Pony or a Dunny look like on the inside – brilliant!

There’s also a video on his blog page of a project he has been working on using a newly developed lenticular fabric which is pretty cool – see the Gummi Bear innards here!

I’ve been blown away by the latest painting by illustrators 64 Colours! I’ve always thought the custom vinyl toys they create are stunning and their marshmallow-headed vinyl toy Marshall was cool, but the latest acrylic on wooden board painting is beautiful!

There are so many gorgeous details to look at, every time I look I see something new. I love the girl’s long twiggy fingers and the roots dress, the pink-eyed bunny peering out from the roots, and that sleeping baby elephant in the nest and the little apple-head dude in a suit are adorable!

Bravo 64 Colours!

I don’t have any tattoos, but if I were to ever get one I’d love to get one done by Australia based tattoo artist Jason Jacenko!

It seems there’s nothing this guy can’t do… amazing tattoos, beautiful paintings, custom toy designs, skate decks…

Today the flyer was released for the upcoming show of UK artist, graphic designer & toy customizer extraordinaire, Squink!

I really wish this show was in London, because I’ve had my beady eye on this custom Dunny called ‘Stump’ since I first saw it!

It’s not an easy feat to pick a favourite Dunny by Squink! To say he’s prolific at producing these amazing designs would be a bit of an understatement – before long he’ll probably have as many designs as all the official Kidrobot Series designs added together! (And I have to say I much prefer some of his designs to some of the official ones that get chosen)

Squinks paintings, drawings and illustrations are equally as impressive – I absolutely adore the way he paints those melancholy eyes.

I’m loving the beautiful paintings and sculptures of American artist Chris Ryniak!

Chris Ryniak was born as a baby in 1976 in the suburbs of Detroit. He spent his childhood basking in the warm glow of Saturday morning cartoons and flipping over rocks in search of insects, reptiles and ghosts.

Years later…

A graduate and former instructor of the Ringling School of Art and Design, He is now a painter and sculptor of all manner of critters. Chris’ work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the US including Miami, LA, New York City as well as Hamburg,Germany and Rome, Italy. His paintings have also been published in numerous books and periodicals in the States as well as in Europe and Singapore.

Chris now resides in a coastal Ohio Dutch Colonial with his wife, two children, cat, frog and lizard. Sadly, no ghosts as of yet.
