MADBALLS (FOR PLAYTIME SHOW!)

The most recent Autumn Society/Brave New Worlds show has been the holiday "Playtime", benefitting the toys for tots. The show feature the work of several artists depicting their favorite/ most memorable childhood toys. Although I rolled around the rug with many a plastic oddity, few brought as much pure creepy joy as madballs. There was really no choice in what toy to focus on, but there were many choices within the madballs faction(s). I chose the following three.
"Slobulus"
"Dust Brain"
"Horn Head"

Each piece began as a mildly labored pencil drawing, then colored with me beloved TOMBO markers. . Im still not sure if I should have left the drawn pieces uncolored, as I really like the way they look in this raw state...?

See what else is goin on in the crap cave here.
