So, this toy store in Denver called The Plastic Chapel had an open call for an "art show" where people painted vinyl toys. You know, the Kid Robot-esque kind. So my brother and I thought it would be fun and we each bought two blanks and gave one to our spouses to paint and kept one for ourselves.

So, I decided to make mine a Day of the Dead one painted on a white blank Munny.

This was actually a really challenging project for me. I had wrist surgery in December on my right (aka dominant) hand. It was a fairly small figure and my hand liked to start shaking when I tried to steady it.

Picture of the front.

Here is the one my brother's wife, Suzanne, made. She really likes cats.

Picture of the one Jaymes did. Needless to say, he didn't finish.

He didn't get his done because he was too busy painting this guy.

My brother, Andrew, did a really cool one using a picture he took of local freight train graffiti and used Omni Gel to transfer it on. However, he didn't allow me to take a picture because I told him I would be posting it and he doesn't like any "online communities".

Please feel free to comment I am eager to get feedback.

Will do personal swap for pogs, Polly Pockets (the little ones) and Gameboy Advance Games. PM me if interested!

 The Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) one is super COOL!

A skeleton walks into a bar and tells the bartender "I'll have a pitcher of beer and a mop".

Yay! I am so glad everyone likes them. My brother dropped them off at the Plastic Chapel today. Apparently we were suppose to name them. My brother named the Day of the Dead one (mine) "Hello Death". Apparently we were suppose to have artist pen names too. So he said my artist pen name was MC Sparkle.  Huh Don't ask me.

These are awesome!  I like them all, though the day of the dead one is for me the most memorable.  I want to try one (or five) as well!
