Award-winning animator and Playboy cartoonist Dean Yeagle has granted The CS Moore Studio the license to release a statue based on his vivacious pinup dream girl, Mandy. The Dean Yeagle Mandy & Skoots Statue will be sculpted by Clayburn Moore, widely regarded for his beautiful interpretations of the female form.
After Dean's curvaceous Mandy appeared online in 2002 (a neo-Mandy was featured in one of Dean's Playboy cartoons that year), she's appeared in art books and original pieces for collectors and a number of Paris art galleries. Over the years she has developed a devoted fan following, eagerly waiting to see what situations the winsome cutie and her dog Skoots will find themselves in next.
The 1/6 scale statue, which will be produced in both cold-cast porcelain and true bronze, will show a surprised Mandy covering herself as she reaches after the mischievous Skoots, who has just absconded with her bikini top. Naughty Skoots!
“Dean Yeagle’s Mandy is one of the great characters of the cartooning world,” said Moore. “This will be a really fun piece to sculpt and I hope collectors will love her.”
"I think that my background in animation has given Mandy a feeling of life and vitality that has been a great part of her appeal. Then again, maybe it's the fact that she so rarely wears any clothes..." says Dean.
The Dean Yeagle Mandy & Skoots Statue is scheduled to ship in 4th Quarter 2012.
