Jon Paul Kaiser reveals his Cranston Jr (originally by Lou Pimentel )custom for the When Hell Freezes Over 2 custom show at MPH. Titled “The Road From Koumori to Osaka ” using the Cranston Jr figure as a canvas he paints a story within the figure its self, but the cleaver thing about it is the face he incorporated features of the Cranston Jr into the painting, for example the clever Fxxker has painted the Geisha’s umbrella as the eye of the Cranston Jr and the originally raised eye which adds another dimension to the design.
JPK blending both the skeleton figure into scene inspired by Ukiyo-e prints.
Another way you can look at the figure is if you display and different angles you can have it as a canvas style on the left or facing it to the right is more of a skeletal bat (please note that is just the way I see if and maybe it’s not what JPK wanted)
The little fella will be $280 USD (around £184)
