The British empire has taken over a spot at San Diego Comic Con! Munky King Toys has invited someone called Jon Paul Kaiser, who is one of several artists to customise some designer toys and be on show at this years SDCC at the Munky King booth. Four badass customs will be on Munky Kings booth and upmost impressive work by JPK.
Screaming for the Sunrise – “This Is My Sunrise”

The original by the mighty Yoskay Yamamoto was always a stella piece and also a part of my personal collection, but JPK freaking smashes it up yet again, the colours seem basic at first glance, but then you delve into the piece more you will notice the tattoos and the carefully brushes orange/red flames, that just highlights scream more.
Uprisings – “Great Wave“

JPK was super excited to work on Kozyndan’s uprisings vinyl he told us. The process was more then time consuming but enjoyed all the finer details. Lord knows how long it took him to highlight all the poor bunnies!
Koibito – “The Forgotten River”
[slider source=”media: 26471,26470,26472″ limit=”100″ width=”1000″ height=”1000″ title=”no” pages=”no” mousewheel=”no” speed=”800″]
JPK works his magic on another Yoskay Yamamoto fab piece The Koibito. Koibito is based on the original painting featured in his “In a Foreign Land” joint show at project:gallery. Who would of thought black and white would look so nice on the Koibito figure. We really light the subtle grey used and how JPK lifts the details with the Koibito with his trademark style.
Pink Elephants – “Civil Disobedience”
Glorious custom of Amanda Visell Pink Elephants platform by JPK. Giving it a much darker side to the Elephant. One thing JPK is really good at and that is Elephants, lets hope that chap ain’t going to drink the molotov. The highlight for us is the pattens on the elephant trunk.
