Grundschulklasse 4A

"Recently i had been invited this week to speak at a school in art classes. Not at the Bauhaus University but in a very smart elementary school. Showing the kids some of my graffiti works, speaking about vinyl toys and answering them all their questions. Also doing some live drawing for them on a canvas for their class room. The kids were super excited about having me there. I guess back in the days when i was their age i would have been blasted too to see some modern arts instead of some old farts.
I then also asked them to join in to draw on a paper with our Teddy Trooper shape lines and bring in their phantasy and skills.
Here are all the funky results (in no particular order).
Thanx to all the cool kids of "Klass 4A" and their lovely teacher Miss H. for having me as a guest!"

"Admiral Ackbar " customized 10" Teddy Trooper

I made another custom 10" Teddy Trooper for our show at the TOYKIO gallery. Like mostly everybody else my age grew up with the Star Wars movies and maybe more important: the Star Wars Kenner toys. I had been thinking for a long while which of the classic SW characters i could pick. Some of them are obviously fitting on the teddy and helmet.... Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, Boba Fett, Biker Scout, Deth Star Gunner.... etc. Most of them have been remixed a hundred times. Somehow at the end i came up with the lamest and uncoolest character of the whole universe: Admiral Ackbar. And the Kenner's Ackbar toy figure even came with the most useless weapon of all time. A stick. "Hey! Look at my new stormtrooper figures i just got! Those big blaster they have! They can shoot down everything. What have you got?" - "Admiral Ackbar! He can destroy the Death Star! With this... äh,... stick... thing." (To not offend Ackbar's dignity any further i haven't given him a stick... thing.)
Available at the TOYKIO Shop&Gallery.

My friend Muffinman - creator of the "From Bronko With Love" / "The Magnificent Ambrose And His Amazing Flying Headgear From Hell" and "Tag Team Partners" Teddy Troopers - just sent me these shots of his latest custom 3" Trooper. It is called "GOTH - Guardian Of The Hog". This time with a new bushy hair style... That little punk just made my day!

Biggest Teddy Trooper ever!

The TURMKUNST project in Berlin has just finished and now the biggest Teddy Trooper mask on the tower is watching all over the Berlin skyline. Size? 3"? 10"? No, it is 160ft (50 meters) high. Massive! The artists HONET, SOZYONE, Craig KR Costello aka KRINK and FLYING FÖRTRESS spent more than 6 weeks to turn the infamous "Bierpinsel" tower into this huge artwork.  More photos on Flying Förtress' blog.
