Munn-day Morning Recap: A Fistful of Bears
10:00 AM on 03.21.2011
Munn-day Morning Recap is back for yet another week, ready to show off the cool Munnys and Dunnys you may or may not have seen in the past few weeks. As always, these are Dunnys that weren't highlighted in individual posts on Tomopop, but were still worth bringing to your attention. And if it's not morning where you are ... it's morning somewhere else, so deal with it.
This week's batch of customs features ... well, it features bears. It also features some more familiar faces on some new vinyl platforms in the Kidrobot family.
Hit the jump to check them all out!
Grizzly in Respite Munny by Andrew R. Shondrick
Let's start with the one we saw in the header, as usual. What's even better is it's another custom from an artist we've featured before in Andrew R. Shondrick. Last time was his first go-around with the Munny platform, and I'd hoped he'd be making more in the future. This custom, made for The Vinyl Takeover at Lakewood, Ohio's Pop Shop/(art)ificial Gallery. Nice to see a vinyl art show opening up in northeast Ohio as well. Check out Andrew's blog (linked above) for WIP pics and more!
CyberPanda Dunny by Jon Paul Kaiser
More bears! Jon Paul as commissioned for another custom Dunny, and this time, he used Chuck80y's 2-Tone Dunny to create a cool cyborg panda. The limited use of color really comes into play with this custom, as it accents certain parts very well. Anyone else still think it's a shame JPK wasn't in the 2-Tone series?
Custom Munny and Bub by Tharp
Here's two more pieces from The Vinyl Takeover, a matching set of a Munny and Bub (in gallery) from Tharp. It's a very cool design, combining a whole bunch of smaller critters into one bigger critter. Love it!

Truffle Dunny by 64Colors
Another very cool 8" custom Dunny from 64Colors. I love the weathering they've applied to the Dunny's wood surface, kind of making it look like the little fellow's been out in the rain for a while. And check out the faces on those ears ... too cute!
Licorice, Cookies & Cream, and Strawberry Icing Dunnys by Yosiell Lorenzo
Yosiell Lorenzo's done icing Dunnys before, but these are three delicious new flavors, mouths wide open and smiling. But no, the frosting's not real, so I'd hope you wouldn't try to eat them. These have since sold out, but Yosiell's always taking new commissions, so feel free to ask!
Regret Foomi by Squink!
Our third custom Foomi, painted for the upcoming Munnyworld exhibition, is from Squink!, following in the footsteps of 64Colors and Cris Rose. As you can see, it's in Squink!'s familiar style with a woods theme to it: a green top (think leaves) and a wooden pattern on the body. More details on the little fellow are supposed to be coming soon, so keep an eye on Squink!'s blog for that.
Wooden Kracka by Rsinart
But what about Foomi's buddy Kracka? Well, he hasn't been forgotten, as we're starting to see some of the first custom Krackas, too! First up is this Wooden Kracka from Rsinart, having turned the gator into a tree of sorts. I also quite like the stone bird alongside the Kracka, which kind of gives a nice contrast to the piece.
ty_po kracka ex. a by Ryan the Wheelbarrow
Finally, here's a new Kracka from Ryan the Wheelbarrow. If you know his style, you'll recognize the different faded typefaces he's used to create a pattern all over this Kracka's body. It's a font nerd's dream come true. And yes, there are font nerds.
