Kidrobot Black Skull by SSUR. Real gold plate teeth, accurate human scale, limited edition of 250 pieces.
I created the Kidrobot Black line as way to get back to basics. Artists were asked to only work in black vinyl, with a single pop color — in this case gold leaf. Launched in 2011, this series was among last projects I created for Kidrobot, before I sold the company to work on other stuff (including Ello).
I've been asked why I left Kidrobot. I loved the company, and the toys we made. But I felt that if I stayed much longer I'd begin repeating myself. It was time to do something new.
