While many toy fans are out shopping for the today's deals, plastic zombie elves are putting the finishing touches on Mikie Graham's Return of the Zombie Art Project, set to open tomorrow at Los Angeles' Toy Art Gallery. Okay, I lied about the "zombie elves" bit but the rest is all true. The opening is tomorrow, November 24, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Mikie will be there "in the flesh" to greet guests and just be an overall cool guy.
For a refresher, this is the second Zombie Art Project. In it, Mikie customized Playmobil toys to turn them into the flesh-eating undead. I know I recognized some of the figures from when I was a kid! Here is a run-down of what this show will entail, courtesy of the official press release:
For the last few months Mikie has been working like a madman turning over one hundred Playmobil figures into 30+ dioramas of the plastic undead. Rounding out the show is a massive 6 x 10 ft painting that Mikie turned into a run of 25 limited edition Giclee prints as well as 3 giant severed Playmobil heads that Mikie sculpted, molded and cast in resin/fiberglass and then individually customized!
All of the figures and prints from the show can be purchased through Toy Art Gallery's online store starting tomorrow. So if you fall in love with a particular piece, you have the opportunity to take it home!
The Return of the Zombie Art Project will run from November 24 to December 8 at Toy Art Gallery on 7571 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90046.
