Cavey's 3rd Birthday

Cavey is turning 3 years old!

Holly Stanway, creator of Cavey and all around multi-talented artistic powerhouse, has steadily been building a plush - and now plastic - empire over the past 3 years. When she invited me to customize her new vinyl Cavey (shown in the top pic) for Cavey's 3rd Birthday Show, I was excited to get to work!

Continuing the crossover aesthetic that was started on our last custom collaboration (shown in the drawing above), I wanted to push the sculptural aspect of the piece, covering almost all the surface area, save for a few small spots. The goal was to stay true to the form and vibe of Cavey, but add some "Glyos" lines and design.

The little guy weighs a fair bit due to the amount of epoxy applied, and is covered in about 20 coats of paint!

It was an honor to participate in Cavey's 3rd Birthday celebration, and we wish him many more!

Thank you Holly!

  1. I love imagining that the face plate opens and its a cute little smiling face inside. The accompanying art is just great too!
