We love the evil overlord of all things monster, Skinner. He blows us away with his artwork and custom toys. His colors and shapes makes his artwork iconic and instantly recognizable.. plus he is hilarious!!

While he was in NYC for his solo show at Tara McPherson's Cotton Candy Machine they made some awesome footage of his install and also took the time to chat... So grab yourself a beer and spend some personal time with the man himself.

Taken from The Cotton Candy's release:

"Skinner's love for metal-dressed fully erect demons eating their enemies goes beyond his incredible paintings and murals. This amazing monster maker from Sacramento also plays in the metal band "Ungoliant" and he practices and tours in between his busy painting schedule. The custom toy world now has a new super star with his collaborations from Lulubell toys. Skinner decided to stop teaching years ago so that he could focus on his personal art. Even though he is not in the classroom anymore he is still teaching a new generation of artists by the way he works. Skinner's collaborations range from our local homies at Mishka to Europe with the Dead Sea Mob. Just last October, Skinner created a huge body of work and a zine called the "Butcher Kings" by teaming up with long time murder accomplice Alex Pardee. And 2011 marked the year Skinner and Zerofriends launch his personal apparel lineCritical Hit. 2012 is going to need more than Armageddon to stop this Monster."
