Lately I've been really into this whole urban toy craze. I find myself searching for hours on sites such as KidRobot.com, TheBananaLab.com, and MyPlasticHeart.com. I especially love the Munny and Dunny lines. A lot of my favorite artists have designed their own versions. So when the chance came along to do one of my own for a friend's birthday present I couldn't resist. I worked up a couple of designs and showed them to her, not telling her what they were for, and we agreed that doing this design on a glow in the dark one would turn out really well. For about the next month I secretly worked on it, and presented it to her on her birthday. She was thrilled. I really like how it came out, and guess what kids, it's a new medium! Acrylic on vinyl. I guess I'm not limited to pen and ink after all!
