Live sculpting, 3D art… and tiny Barack Obama

@The NYC Toy fair 2008 there was a sort of bizarre station, in a good way. A sculptor was working on a clay skeleton, another artist was making something in 3D (figures, a giant gun) and I think it all had something to do with Jailbreak toys, the makers of historical figures (they gave me a mini-Warhol) – tiny Obama was on site, no Ron Paul, sorry.

    Warhol, Dali, Kahlo, Van Gogh, Picasso? Got to have that set.

  2. Meks says:

    That last set “Oddfellows” looks like it was very “inspired” by the work of Mike Leavitt who’s been featured here on the Make: Blog.
