Close your eyes and picture an overweight yellow boy jumping up and down over the exciting announcement, HA. As much as we love Rhino Beetle, the Los Angeles based illustrator and designer, Chris Lee has his uber cool Rhino Beetle transformed into a resin art figure! Chris landed 2 spots on the already released Kidrobot “City Cryptid” Dunny series with 2 Dunny designs and plenty of other vinyl goodness way back. The Rhino Beetle comes straight out of his Moss Kingdom series and NOW MAKE WAY FOR Sky King Pterantor from PRIMEVAL ISLAND Series! YES, The Beast is Back!
What is Primeval Island?
The legends speak of a remote island that exists somewhere in the uncharted waters of the South Pacific – untouched by man and ruled by giant prehistoric beasts. Whispered stories spread throughout time describe an unforgiving landscape ravaged by volcanoes, earthquakes, and storms. It is a land filled with teeth and claws – the domain of monsters.––––––––––
After a full year of development and production, this next release in the self-produced Primeval Island series is inspired by the artist’s love of dinosaurs, vintage kaiju toys and the pteranodon. –Chris
