Woes n Scribe n Marine oh my...

So for Pow Wow,

I knew both Scribe n Angry Woebots were gonna make an appearance here in the 808 for Pow Wow.  I dug into my vault of some of my most prized figs not yet displayed in my collection and grabbed my extra one off Jouwe Wings figs that my good buddy Marine hooked me up with back in my beginning phase of collecting.

When these pair of figs were mailed to me from Marine, the arms and wings snapped off while in transit.  Marine replaced me with a brand new set of one off's but I held on to the damaged Jouwe Wings, for one special day, and that special day has finally come.

Scribe n Woes proudly hit these figs up and grinned when I presented these figs to them, being that they both remembered Marine's sculpts from my first Jouwe show I curated here in the 808 back in the day.  But ya, the results from both artists are hella awesome, especially with 'em being hit up by only black Sharpie pens.

Some of the Pow Wow goodness...


It's been seriously 2 months since I've posted anything on here?  Man, I need to get a life, lol.  Anyhow, last week was one awesome one with Pow Wow.  For those of you who don't know what Pow Wow is, it's become a yearly event here in the 808 where artists from Hawai'i and beyond fly on in and hit up Kaka'ako with their work on a number of the buildings there.

Along with the art, this year, there was a lil push with the fig world, thanks to a bunch of folks from Lightsleepers, Silent Stage, Cardboard Spaceship, etc. etc. A few figures were sold by some of the greats like Scribe and Alisa Ross, Angry Woebots and Yoskay Yamamoto, to name a few.  Below are a couple (of the many) goodies I got from Pow Wow from Scribe and Woes.

The shark bee, was done as a special Hawai'i release for Pow Wow, man, I had to bring my camera out and snap some pics, which came out (in my opinion) stunning.  Woes' dunny wasn't a special release for Pow Wow, I brought it along with me for Woes to hit up and what he did was amazing, unreal what a splash of gold can do.
