JPK 1000% Be@rbrick Custom

Behold 28 inches of custom goodness by JPK. This 1000% Be@rbrick by JPK was created for a collector in Hong Kong. He uses his signature negative spaces techniques to do something extra cool. Rather than depicting the Be@rbrick as a samurai, he simply (or not-so-simply) uses the platform as a canvas, turning the subject at about a 45-degree angle. The customizing process got off to a slow start but eventually turned into something that Jon-Paul Kaiser is very proud of, and rightly so. "The client left the design direction up to me, though [he] asked to see sketches first so we could decide on a path together," says the UK-based artist. "After a few sketches that weren't working for us both, I developed the floating, dream-like samurai which I knew instantly was the path to take. The client agreed and I got to work."
