Bogey gets the Munny treatment with this amazing Sam Spade custom

1:00 PM on 02.11.2010 // Jason Millward

Forties pulp crime novels with cold, heartless killers.
The cool ace detective in old, film noir thrillers.
All of the plot threads all tied up like string.
These are a few of my favorite things.

I love love love old crime fiction. Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe is my own personal savior, and I adore Dashiel Hammett. Dashiell's The Maltese Falcon was made into multiple movies- the best of which starred Humphrey Bogart as Private Investigator Sam Spade. Such a heartlessly cool cat. In the beginning of the novel/flick his partner gets murdered, but Sam just shrugs it off. Now he doesn't have to worry about his pal discovering that he's sleeping with his wife!

Artist Kevin Gosselin had immortalized Bogey's private dick in this gorgeous custom. This is easily amongst the greatest custom sculpts that I've ever seen. He nails Humphrey's distinctive look and character. The detail and craftsmanship on this Munny is gallery quality. Those etched in wrinkles and an impressive paint job bring Sam to life. I love the pose and little touches like the watch chain and the coat's stitching. Give Kevin's blog a look for more photos of this brilliant piece and other great works as well.
