Mikie Graham's "This Is Your Brain"
Artist Cooks Up Rare Comic-Con Exclusive Mini-Figure...
Designer toy artist Mikie Graham is cooking up something special for San Diego Comic-Con, a run of custom mini-figures he is calling "This Is Your Brain". Inspired by the 80's anti-drug scare ad "Your Brain On Drugs," Graham has created a miniature recreation using Emelio Garcia's Jumping Brain figures. Playing with the shape of the Jumping Brain figure, Mikie used clear resin and a little hand painted detail to make the vinyl figures resemble a sunny-side up egg. Finishing off the scale illusion, Mikie found miniature cast iron frying pans that perfectly fit his mini fried eggs.
Each egg comes compete with customized packaging- a black cardboard box with removable photo print mounted to its lid. Both the figure and the print come hand-signed and numbered.
Mikie will have 10 of his creations for sale at Dragatomi's booth #4935 starting on Preview night priced at $45. While you're there make sure to check out the "Dragatomi Hug" resin figures that Mikie painted for Blamo Toys, also available starting preview night for only $25.
