STR WAS: Chewback by Mark Todd (for DKE Toys @ #ComplexCon 2016)


Here is the latest edition of artist Mark Todd’s first ever toy and first ever sculpture, a take on Chewie of Star Wras. His original was molded and then cast in resin and hand painted by Mark as well. The card back is comprised of 2 riso graph prints on front and back for that very indie zine feel. 3.75" scale carded figure. Only 30 made and each is signed and numbered. 
Priced at US$55 apiece (tax included), this item will be made available at DKE Toys’ Booth #J11 for COMPLEX CON (Nov 5-6, 2016) in Long Beach, California.


WHO-IS: ”Like many kids raised in the 70's, Mark was influenced at an early age by Star Wars and comic books. Unlike many kids, he grew up just a few miles from the Vegas strip, it's neon and glitz looming over the city. He graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and currently lives and works in the Los Angeles area with his wife, artist Esther Pearl Watson, their daughter Lili and Mr. Pickles, a lovely French Bulldog.

Some of Mark’s clients include: Cartoon Network + Houghton Mifflin Books + Getty Publications + Clearasil + Rolling Stone + Dangerbird Records + Blue Q + MTA + New York Times + Country Music Television + Entertainment Weekly + Outside Magazine + Los Angeles Times + Euro RSCG + Wieden and Kennedy + Spot Design + Coca-Cola + Fuse TV + Mtv + Travel and Leisure + Fantagraphics Books + Bark Magazine + Business Week + McSweeney's + PC World + Texas Monthly + GQ + Nickelodeon
