I discovered the work of Atlanta artist Greg Mike becasue of his paper toy, Loud Mouf. Turns out there's a lot more to this guy than a paper toy with a chipped tooth. Once I got over the dissapointment  of there only being one toy available, I quickly realized there was so much more to be had, so much more to see. The goofy yet endearing style behind his lone paper toy travels quickly past the paper realm, becoming less goofy at an exponential rate, quickly reaching the sublime.

There's still some lighthearted offerings, such as his can series [who can take KISS make-up seriously?] but the body of work when viewed as a whole reaches a cultish pop art status, and there's nothing goofy about that. I only wish he'd do more paper...

Check out the rest of Greg Mike's work HERE.

    Swoon! Ever since the event was first teased, I've been wondering if Konatsu would be bringing any of her super cute watercolor illustrations to myplasticheart for her solo exhibition. Well, the above imagine indicates a firm "yes"!

    While he's much more than the parts that make up his identity, mix Lisa Frank, Trapper Keeper art, and some hallucenagenic materials, and you've got a good idea of where Mikael B. is coming from.
