At TRIGGER II tonight!!! Two exclusives will drop. Ferg’s PLAYGE DOCTOR SKELVE (White / edition 66) only available to reserve in person only. And Stranger Factory’s exclusive Brandt Peters’ colorway “PULL CART SKELVE” figure from the upcoming mini series from @cbspaceship WANDERING MISFITS (edition 100)!
Another miscreant from the dreams of Brandt Peters is all done and ready for Trigger II opening this Friday! This oil on panel piece titled “00ze Scull Study 001” is ready to carve up Albuquerque when the doors of Stranger Factory open (or when you fall asleep Friday night). This Terror Boy is a proper homage back to a classic villain from Elm Street.
Don’t sleep (literally) when Trigger II opens January 10th – February 2nd, with an opening reception on Friday, January 10th from 6 – 9 PM. Both Brandt and Ferg will be in attendance.
In case you missed it, Trigger II previews were all over the internet this past weekend. Brandt and Ferg had an all out war with images of their work, and it was a sight to see everything pop up on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter. So, if you weren’t near social media or were hibernating from the bitter cold out there, we have you covered.
Above is a bloody custom in progress from Brandt Peters titled “The Butcher”. Oh, that meat grinder accessory would make Sweeney Todd swoon with delight.
Below we have Ferg’s plague doctor custom. He knows what you did last summer and it involves meat hooks! I know we’ve been talking about how big Brandt is going with some of his new pieces, but I think it might be hard to understand exactly how big without some perspective. For reference, Brandt’s hands are not tiny.
Trigger II runs January 10th – February 2nd, with an opening reception on Friday, January 10th from 6 – 9 PM. Both artists will be in attendance.
Has it really been two years since the original Trigger broke the internet and doors down at Stranger Factory?
It seems like just yesterday, but regardless of what time it is, Trigger IIopens in exactly one week!
While Brandt Peters and Ferg are busy putting the finishing touches on all their work, we thought it would be good to look back at the original Trigger show from January 2012. This will get us ready and give us an idea of what we can expect from week, but I am willing to bet that Trigger II will be even bigger.
So sit back and look back at the original show.
Trigger II runs January 10th – February 2nd, with an opening reception on Friday, January 10th from 6 – 9 PM. Both Brandt and Ferg will be in attendance.
It’s a new year, and time for a new round of Circus Folk!
If you are new to our gaggle of misfits, Circus Folk is where we showcase the beautiful collections of our many collectors one at a time. We love our collectors and are constantly awed by their collections,
Our showcase this week is a passionate collector of Brandt and Ferg’s work – the brilliant collection of Austin Auch! You may know Austin from the Collect and Destroy forum and from the Circus Posterus forum, where he has taken on the awesome task of “365 Days of Trouble” – photographing a Trouble Boy all over the map!
Gazing at Austin’s collection, it is easy to see that he loves the world of Squadts and everything Ferg. The wide variety and number of pieces is astoundin and comprehensive, and it’s always a honour to get a peek into a labour of love like Austin’s. The love for Circus Posterus and many other works don’t go unnoticed either. We might be pretty biased, but we think that Austin has great taste!
We tried, but we couldn’t keep this one under wraps for too much longer!
Time for a preview of this clear Ooze Terror Boy for Trigger II. Ferg isn’t holding back one bit! I love the orange eyes on this one, as well as the dashing blue jacket. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait too much longer to see the final piece! Trigger II runs January 10th – February 2nd, with an opening reception on Friday, January 10th from 6 – 9 PM. Both Brandt and Ferg will be in attendance.
Should we dub this “Maniac Monday” as a tribute to the Terror Boys, or just say we have a double barrel shotgun of images loaded and ready to blast at you for Trigger II?
Regardless of the stupid puns we think up, you might want to go ahead and pick your jaw up off the floor because we have some wonderful previews from Brandt Peters and Ferg!
Up first, is a gloriously awesome blood splatter piece by Brandt. No full monty yet but we do see where this is going, an oozing Terror Boy with machetes dripping crimson. Next to this little guy is what we are all anxiously awaiting, one of Brandt’s girls! A terror girl maybe?
Hope you are sitting down because Brandt Peters just pulled the proverbial Trigger II on what he is up to and it is big!
These 2D work in progress shots he sent over are epicly huge being 24″ x 72″ tall and feature Terror Girl pin-ups in all their blood drenched glory. Brandt’s girls are a big favorite with fans and we don’t get to see them enough, so it is truly kickass we get to see a few more this January.
Since Brandt is still hard at work on these, we can only imagine what the final versions will be like.
More soon! Trigger II runs January 10th – February 2nd, with an opening reception on Friday, January 10th from 6 – 9 PM. Both Brandt and Ferg will be in attendance.
Another Trigger II carrot dangling in front of our face, but this time from Ferg!
From his almighty instagram feed we get an image of a Squadt’s shirt. On the shirt is a family crest of sorts – with a P in the middle and rats surrounding it. P for Playge perhaps? Could this be a one off, or a small edition coming to Trigger II? Only three more weeks until the opening, and then we will know just what Ferg is up to!
Don’t forget that Ferg, along with Brandt Peters, will be holding a workshop that weekend as well!
THE FINE ART OF CHARACTER DESIGN Sunday, January 12th / 2 – 5 PM WORKSHOP FEE: $75
