Scroll on and do some urban exploring with Mike, Chuck & Gabriel. Oh, and mind the smell. Summertime in NYC ain't easy on the nose...
Name: Mike (@punker_mike)
Location: California, US
Inspiration: I pull alot of inspiration from music. Sometimes I can hear a verse or feel the beat and a story vividly plays in my head. The song that inspired this custom kitbash figure and photo shoot is "Stik 'n' Muve" from ONYX.
Name: Chuck (@chuckgentilejr)
Location: Massachusetts, US
Inspiration: I love Vapor. Love the street vibe. Tattoos are a part of that life. So once I tatted Vapor. Burner and Vaporoni were a no brainer. Such a fun verairile figure. Looking forward to more of the crew being released.
Name: Gabriel (@gbalda)
Location: New York, US
Inspiration: I have always been captivated by the iconic photograph "Lunch atop a Skyscraper" (1932), believed to be the work of Lewis Hine, although no official attribution exists. Inspired by this image, I endeavored to recreate a similar scene in my living room crafting an old beam and a pulley, suspending them with wires to evoke a sense of height and thrill, though nowhere near the original 850 feet. I set a digirama (digital diorama) of Central Park as a backdrop on my TV. After dressing up Gomez and providing a custom metzit with its own hammer, I felt something was missing – breakfast! Since America runs on Dunkin, why not fly with it too? That day, I learned how to properly fold Dunkin's paper bags, completing the scene.
