Jon Paul Kaiser’s client gave him an Irish/Celtic mythology themed Dunny, JPK treated like a canvas rather than a character. JPK went with one of the most popular legends, which is Lugh the High King and Protector of Ireland as he faces off against his greatest adversary; Balor the Dread Eye, King of the Formorians. Legend has it that whenever Balor opened his eye, whatever his dread gaze was easy upon would burn in ruin.
On the body go the Dunny is Oonah Sidhe, Queen of the fairies. She is summoning the power of the Earth Goddess through the ancient standing stones to assist Lugh in his battle.

JPK has found some new colours with the red and yellows  ( just messing Jon)  nice touches having a diffrent tone of black/grey on the tattoos and the dashes of blood on the sword.

I can see more and more collectors wanting more customs like this, more of a story along with art and using the platform as a canvas and not really using the shape as a character. Saying that JPK still uses the curves in the Dunny to incorporate the design , blending the dark blacks into the background and Balor character incorporates into the background.
