Over the last four years, the standard icons of American life evoked anxiety rather than pride for me. Add corona virus on top of the political turmoil and the term"dumpster fire" barely covered it. Things were pretty bleak, but as of this Wednesday I once again feel like there is hope in the world. That science, and reason, and basic human decency have a chance to thrive. And I am more than happy to help support an America-themed release that is finally something positive after such a long time where it would have been impossible to create such a work.
Buff Monster has gone full patriotic with this Liberty resin figure. And he's gone big, because this beacon of freedom stands at nearly a foot tall. Each one is made of rotocasted resin, is hand painted, and comes in a pretty sweet wooden box befitting its status. This edition is limited to 25 unique pieces and will be available at 11am on Friday, January 22nd from www.staymelty.com.
There will also be a limited edition screen print for those of you that still have space on your walls. I don't know what that's like and have begun rotating our pieces like a museum. I should really do a themed show one day, just for my wife and the cats. But back to this print, which is is limited to only 100 copies in this 18" x 24" signed and numbered edition. It will be available at the same time as the figures on www.staymelty.com.
