Evil toy

I haven't had the chance to paint with... uhm... reel paints for a while now. But recently I got invited by Wrocław based artist Abe-S to hand-paint a Kidrobot Munny for his online gallery First I didn't know what to come up with and then I had this vision, just before falling asleep one evening, of a red creature covered with eyes. I named it after a an old Fritz Lang movie called The Thousand Eyes of Dr. Mabuse. My son thought it a bit scary and told me "it can't eat with its eyes". Good point.

You can have a peek at the gallery here.

Leenia received a Honour award (last year it got Gold) "...for consequently making a good fashion magazine". KOKO was awarded Bronze "for skillfully combining a fashion catalogue and a parenting magazine with a kids magazine". Last but not least Active received Silver "for interesting and innovative design; original pictures and excellent photo editing".
