I wanted to let you know more about the release of my first production toy based on my art, made possible by Martian Toys. The Abominable Snowcone is the 3D manifestation of my Cryptidbits series painting by the same name. Imagine a 50 foot snowcone monster loose on your neighborhood streets chasing after the ice cream man who imprisoned him in a icy hell for years. This cherry monster is ready to exact revenge on all those bratty kids who bit into his smaller brethren….
The Abominable Snowcone is a 3 piece set: a 7 1/4 inch tall Snowcone Monster, a 2 inch ice cream truck and a handy spoon ready to serve up some icy menace. Comes packed in a blister pack inside a box that I designed.
I will be at New York Comic Con this week spending most of my time working in Martian Toys booth (#203). I will also be doing a signing there on Thursday from 10am to noon. The Abominable Snow Cone will be available in the Cherry flavor and the Blueberry flavor is an NYCC exclusive in an edition size of 150. Both will retail for $125 each (or both for $200 at the convention only).
After NYCC, you can pre-order your Cherry Abominable Snow Cone on October 12th or pick one up on the general release date of October 30th at martiantoys.com or select designer toy retailers.
