Mr. Magic is the third and final installment of my Spirit of '84 Kidrobot mascot series that began as an illustration. I find something interesting about the '80s and '90s with this original illustration taking up some of the aesthetics of the time period combined with the contemporary movement(s) in designer toys. The first one I made to help support my Threadless campaign, then the second for "Bits and Pieces" at Lift Designer Toys, and the last for a private collector.
What drew me to the Kidrobot Mascot as a platform was that few artists were taking up this figure for the custom pieces. Like the 6" Fatcap which few artists are working with - I have one planned for Jeff Beck's January show.
We are back again. Will show you guys quite some works these days. Let's start with Patrick Wong. This guy should design a production Mascot.....will be a real hit. He is working now on this Mascot.....
