UK artist Sam Drew aka Lumps is back with another designer toy! but this time on his own. All ready to debut his all-new art toy ‘Slumpo’ which was hand sculpted by himself and will be made here in the UK, Whopp woop. Once again we get the chance to own LUMPS artwork in an art toy format now that Sam’s art has been transformed into 3D art sculpture/toy or whatever medium you wanna call it. Has Sam taken inspiration from our own body? He’s got the moobs right! HA.
Sam Drew aka Lumps, illustrator and designer from Cardiff, UK, collaborated with Mighty Jaxx in 2017 on the first Lumps art toy ‘Cig Pack‘. Since then, Lumps has been hard at work sculpting his next art toy ‘Slumpo’ which will be produced under his own British design brand and will be released for pre-order. The art toys will be produced in the UK using cast resin and hand painted.
The Slumpo Story
Slumpo’s were a select group of human beings who lived out their lives in an underground fast food testing facility established in the 1940’s. Confined to small spaces and fed only on a new burger and Pizza concepts, the humans no longer needed to move for work or food and they evolved into obedient and deflated Slumpo’s. Still in operation today, we have been able to locate the facility and smuggle out a limited number of Slumpo’s in old waste disposal boxes. The smuggled Slumpo’s are now free and ready for a safe new home.
The Slumpo’s were all tagged and numbered for testing, but their old human names are included in each box. Please do not attempt to find or contact the food testing facility directly as you will be putting the freedom of thousands of Slumpo’s at risk.
Warning: Please do not place your Slumpo near fast food as this may be too tempting for them.
