There's a great series of videos about one of the vinyl kings, Tristan Eaton over on The one shown here is titled "Cops, Guns and Paint: Confessions of a graffiti artist" and tells an interesting tale of one of his graffiti experiences.

This excerpt is part of a longer interview series he conducted for CNN's "the next list" - You can watch all of the videos on the thunderdog site here. I recommend a view, its a very interesting perspective from an artist who straggles the line between the main stream commercial art world and the underground art/vinyl world. He tells the tales of growing up in london, and what influences his artwork. Go check it out!!!

    Kidrobot are at the Museum Store Association convention and just fully revealed all 14 3" Andy Warhol Dunnys. (Only the line art of all 14 had previously been seen.) However, something else in that photo caught my eye.
