Oh, how nerdy Chris Ryniakcan get when he has time to play. We never would have guessed it.
Anyway, to show off his herd of Crumbeaters for SDCC, Chris made this nice video with them swirling around until they barf up all their toast crumbs. Notice how each of these guys is different from his sibling! Priced at $200 each, these guys won’t last long.
The Crumbeaters will be up for grabs and feedings from 12 noon to close every day on Thursday – Sunday during Comic-Con (not available during Wednesday’s “Preview Night”) at the Cardboard Spaceship booth#5346. Chris will be signing and sketching when Circus Posterus invades Comic Con at Cardboard Spaceship’s booth on Saturday, July 20th.
Hide your pretzels and don’t leave a burrito anywhere near them, because a herd of Crumbeaters are making their way to the San Diego Comic Con!
Chris Ryniak has taken a small handful of these small hunger driven creations and given them each their own distinct personality. You read correctly, every one of these dudes have some added sculpting and attitude! All are distinct and definitely one of a kind. There is just one more finishing touch left on them before they head over to the Cardboard Spaceship booth#5346 on Saturday, July 20th when Circus Posterus takes over for a day.
We have a prescription for current conditions of cold rain, snow, and general malaise, and the answer is a heavy dose of blank green Bubbleguts and Crumbeaters by Chris Ryniak.You can call these little monsters DIY, unpainted, or just blank, but even with their singular color, they are adorable and constantly hungry. If you want to give one of these green (not queasy) fiends a new home or a trip to a buffet, you can because they are now on sale in the Circus Posterus Store.
We’ve been bombarding you with so much information this past week, that you might be thinking “Wow, I really need a re-cap of all the production pieces releasing this weekend at Migration!”
Fortunately, we’ve got you covered! Chris Ryniak has a whole slew of editioned releases coming up in-store in two days, in addition to the giant pile of original art that will be inhabiting Stranger Factory’s walls.
1.DIY mini Bubbleguts in green, price TBD
2. DIY mini Crumbeatersin green and orange, price TBD
3. CP+Tomenosuke’s Pickled Ginger edition of 120 (60 at CP and 60 at Tomenosuke) $89
Do you know what we like to do with already adorable sculpts? We make them even adorabler. You may already have seen some of our orange and green DIY mini Crumbeaters at DesignerCon, or in store at Stranger Factory.
Now, we’ve also shrunken our favourite pastry hoarder, Bubblegut, into a slightly miniaturized 4″ DIY version. Although – we’re pretty sure that that belly of his is still bigger on the inside.
We’re happy to tell you that both our resin DIY mini Bubbleguts and DIY mini Crumbeaters will be available for Migration at Stranger Factory on March 1st, and any that remain will make it to the online store in mid March! The details really shine on these scaled down guys, and we cannot wait to see what our creative followers cook up on this charming platform. We will be updating y’all with the price shortly.
Both Chris Ryniak and Amanda Louise Spayd will both be on hand for the opening, so if you’re coming to the show, don’t forget to tuck a Sharpie in your pocket! As per Stranger Factory opening night tradition, some Rebel Donuts will likely be on hand, but due to the recent influx of these fat critters, we cannot promise that they’ll be many left for you.
Chris has been keeping us updated from his monster den on some of the creatures he is creating, and one of them seems to be a hybrid mega monster of epic epicness!!! It seems the “Crumblegut” has been born! We have some of his progress pics of the development below. From the images, this seems to be the genetic mutation of the crumbeater and bubblegut into a super monster that snatches your candycorn or maybe this relationship is like Masterblaster from Mad Max:Beyond Thunderdome. Well, whatever this lil fella is, he will be making his grand entrance at Bewitching II, opening Oct. 5 at Stranger Factory.
Chris Ryniak‘s pint-sized army of critters for Spectrum is wrapped up and ready for action! The mini Bubbleguts, mini Crumbeaters and regular Crumbeaters are each an edition of six and customized lovingly by CMR. You’ll find them crawling about the CP booth (#919), probably nibbling on the corners of prints or sleeping in a pile of t-shirts. Be early, folks — these are always the first to go!
As part of the Japan sale comes the release of Circus Posterus’ first-ever mini resin set featuring familiar favourites: Kathie and Brandt’s Mini Masao Skelve (w/ ‘Boo’ style mask) and Chris Ryniak’sBubblegut and Crumbeater. Dimensionally speaking, the Mini Skelve appears unchanged, but the usually 6-inch Bubblegut has shrunk a few inches (Minigut?), as has the Crumbeater. A Mini Skelve is 4.25 inches tall, to give you an idea of scale.
As mentioned, these will be available for CP’s Japan fundraiser for $135 + shipping. They’re an edition of 66 pieces and will only be available as a set (take heed!). The sale is slated for either April 2nd or April 3rd — I’ll lean on the horn as soon as KO&BP cement a date.
A member of the CP forum was shocked to find this wee beastie from Chris Ryniak nibbling on the gifts beneath the tree. A commissioned Crumbeater custom (how’s that for consonance), the ice blue Snoweater is adorned with delicate, lace-like snowflakes that Ryniak worked into the piece. A truly unique and beautiful gift, for sure!
