Travis Louie’s utterly awesome Spirits exhibition opened this past weekend at Stranger Factory and hidden among the paintings and drawings was his Ecto Stan bust, a surprise, 20-piece edition from Travis and Circus Posterus. Standing 7 inches tall and retailing for $250 per, the hand painted resin busts are a brand new platform from CP and it’ll be really exciting to see what they have planned for these, given this strong debut. We’ve had a taster of what can be done with giant Elizabeth and Skelve busts, so there’s no doubt that these smaller platforms should yield all kinds of toytastic magic — editioned and custom pieces alike!
Spirits is on display until Sept. 3 at the Factory and the exhibition is also live right here. For those hankering for more 3D goodness, be sure to check out Travis’ exclusive Uncle Six Eyes, and his Ghostly Stan Skelve, as well!
Yep. This here would be the personification of shit getting real: frantic crowds, elbows flying, hopefully a good Crisco Twister wrestling match right in front of the booth. … Right. Sorry. *Straightens glasses.*
A few days ago Travis Louie hinted at having a few custom Stan Skelves with him at Spectrum this weekend and hot damn, here they are, hanging out in the Travis Louie Specter Studio, getting ready for their trek to Kansas City.
From the sounds of it, these will be the only Stan customs offered at the Con; a handful of regular ‘Ghostly’ editions will also be available. Pricing on the customs is TBD but Ghostly is $200, to give you an idear.
Spectrum Fantastic Art Live is on this Friday through Sunday at the Kansas City Convention Centre in lovely Kansas City, MO. Party’s in Bartle Hall; the CP booth is #919, near the main stage. Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, Chris Ryniak and Archer Dougherty will also be there for the action so stop by and share a weird story.
*To those who cannot attend, there is Kleenex on my desk. We’ll get over it. Eventually. *Sniff* ;)
Man, Spectrum is already shaping up to be a killer con, what with beautiful handpaints from Kathie, Chris and now Travis Louie. A handful of custom Stan Skelves will be up for grabs from Mr. Louie, including one similar to the custom Stan from the Bewitching Halloween show, and an amphibian-type that looks “straight out of Avatar.”
Travis will also have small paintings and drawings on hand for anyone looking to sex up their wall space. Prepare to sprint to booth #919 if you want to be one of the first to add these coveted pieces to your CP collection!
Spectrum Fantastic Art Live kicks off May 18-20 at the Kansas City Convention Center (Bartle Hall). Party up in hee-yah!!
