    Not a fan of Supreme (not knocking it but I just don't get the brand) but I love that freak. Sooo clean. Love it. LOVE it.

    Thank you.

    I know the brand is super hype beast, but everything I’ve ever bought from them is extremely well made. I mostly pick up their collectibles from time to time. I’m far to old to be wearing most of their clothing lol.

    I sat on those blanks for months. Had these ideas what to do for paint etc. Then one day had a blank out and thinking about ways to go in the opposite direction, do the most minimal paint possible that would still elevate the toy as much as possible. Then this design happened. Don’t think I’d do it again though. I think the homage is great but works best if it’s one and done type thing. Ken also approved it from the beginning so that also made it that much more special.

    This 100%! It's the one I went for during the shop drop. Had it in the cart but me and my internet was too slow. If I had a full time job, or a bit of fuck-you money, I would have gone for the Midnight Meringue set too, which sat there taunting me for a few beats longer :lol:

    I’m definitely not charging “fuck you money” for these :lol:

    Shig charging 10k for a 1 off with a 5 year contract is definitely the definition of “fuck you money”, bordering on “fuck me money”

    What do you mean by 5 year contract? You mean you can't sell the toy for at least 5 years?

    @jonnydungeons, since you're new here, let me fill you in on a rule:

    Pics plz k thx

    :shock:

    At what point do all these rules just suck all the fun out of things?

    There is some Japanese maker that requires you to send a selfie with a driver's license photo and threatens to sue you if you are reselling. I understand the intent but that's ridiculous.

    I really appreciate all of these different paint styles we're seeing. The minimal painting on the Supreme Freak is SUPER sharp. And on the other hand, the entomophobia worm is just filled to the brim with paint and equally gorgeous

    It’s fun to explore every possible way of approaching a toy. After so many years I’d loose my mind if I had to just paint the same colors and same style over and over.

    A buddy picked up one of the earlier versions on my behalf and they are killer in-hand, but the dudes shenanigans just kill any interest in trying for more!

    Back to the freak. Yes....super clean and it just works. Both actually are so different and great. The collab is great and would love to see more.

    ^ Yupp! And I was definitely not implying Rich were overcharging for these, or any of his/your work, which made the seconds before the Midnight set too was gone extra excruciating. There for the picking, and for a reasonable price, but having just managed to scrape together enough for a freak I couldn't pull the trigger. Bad timing on my part, that's all.

    Ken is great to work with, so is Knuckle. It’s hard to separate the two now. They made one of the best toy making teams in recent years.

    I really appreciate how they work nothing is forced. We do have more in the works, but each will have a cap before retirement. So maybe one more color way of the freak then we retire it.

    Colabs definitely work better this way now a days. Especially when you working working multiple colabs at once, because it can get saturated ruined fast.

    At some point I’ve learned to separate the toy from the maker. Shig is gonna Shig. The art is still the art at the end of the day and it’s always done super well. Me and Shig have definitely had our issues, but he literally has had issues with everyone so it’s kinda funny.

    I stopped only because I can’t afford his art anymore. I’m happy to have the few things I do. I’m not a completist so that helps.

    O I know. I just find it funny what “fuck me money” is considered in the art toy world today. That opinion varies so much. What made me think what is my definition of “fuck me money” for a toy and the Shig example popped in my head. Hell at that point it’s definitely toy in medium only.

    can't wait to see the new drop stuff start landing! those finks are quintessential; only option that might beat it is green fink red bodysuit to be as classic as possible but this cherry homage is perfection

    All the stuff will start to ship next week. The studio move really took more time than expected.

    Sorry about that. Some times it just gets overwhelming, and these last few sales I just didn’t get it out.

    Next drop I’ll pick back up sending out to the mailing list.

    Would help if someone posted here, so people that follow me here and not IG would know.

    I don’t post here because I figured most people that follow me here are on IG, and I don’t want to spam info more than I already am.

    Instagram is fucking shit. Even if you have notifications for individual accounts turned on, they only KINDA work and if u have several & tap one it goes to IG and all the others are gone. Wouldn't rely on it for spreading info.
