Jordan Coffin Shoebox – Wood Toy

If you weren’t able to make it out to the “Fresh To Death” art show this past Saturday night down in San Diego at Rosewood, here are photos of the third coffin shoebox wood toy that was created for the event. This toy is styled like a Jordan Brand sneaker box and is wearing a pair of gold Jordan IV’s. It also has the same specs as the other two.

Each coffin shoebox figure is adored with matching “fresh” golden sneakers and they stand at almost 10″ tall. They are laser cut and engraved out of wood, then assembled and painted with a vintage/worn feel. Inside the coffins features a Hawaiian print floral lining, as well air vents on the “top” of them, as they can be filled with potpourri. These both tie into the theme of “Fresh To Death”. They are ready to hang on the wall, as well as being to stand on their feet or on their backs.

If you were at the show, you saw the full display, which includes matching skeletons and potpourri flowers inside the coffins. Furthermore, each of these pieces are entitled “2 Feet Under”, and are editioned by their “brand”. Here are some pics of all three together as well as the skeleton surprises:

This turned out to be a BONUS #weeklytoyproject, since I finished this last week and it was revealed over the weekend. Look out for a recap and photos of the “Fresh To Death” art show this week.

Dia de Los Muertos Doll – Clay Toy

To celebrate the festivities of “Dia de Los Muertos” (Day of the Dead), here is a Skeleton Doll sculpted out of clay, then painted. Standing about 5″ tall, he actually turned out looking more like a professional wrestler, and this actually would be a cool costume for a Lucha Libre.

I’ll probably be stopping by the Downtown Dia de los Muertos celebration in DTLA at Grand Park on Saturday. The event starts at 3pm and features “altars, food trucks, free face-painting, awesome bands, and full bar en el centro de Los Ángeles!” Come by if you are free!

Skull Wood-Canvas Prints for Dia De Los Muertos

I created these three pieces, entitled “Dinero, Poder, Respeto” for the WAKE Dia De Los Muertos art show at SpaceLUNA  in Los Angeles, which opened on Friday Oct. 28th.

Each are 16″x20″ and were created with wood, canvas, acrylic paint and spray paint.
