Monster Jamungo B.U.D.
For the second year I am participating in the Squad 19 - Toys In The Attic fundraiser for Toys For Tots. This year, Squad 19 gave twelve artists a 9" Jamungo B.U.D. for customizing. This montage of monster elements is what I did with mine.
The customs will be shown at Gallery 122 in Minneapolis, MN on Friday December 3rd. During the exhibit you will be able to bid on the customs and view them in person. But it gets better! If you can't make it to Gallery 122, you can still place your bids on ebay the week prior to the exhibit. Make sure you are on my email list (sign up at the top right of this blog) to be notified when the auction goes live.
The artist roster for customs is:

Toys in the Attic 2010 will take place @ GALLERY 122 this year. Gallery 122 is located @ 122 8th Street SE in Minneapolis
Opening Reception will be December 3th and will feature limited edition/signed and numbered prints and custom toys from Local and National artists benefiting Toys for Tots.
Guests are asked to help out children in need by bringing a new (unwrapped) toy* to the show. In return, you’ll get one** of the event official poster prints designed this year by Minneapolis artist DWITT.
*No military based toys such as guns, please / **While supplies last.
If you forget your toy, there is a suggested donation of $1-$5 at the door. All toys and door donations go directly to Toys for Tots.
Artists are invited to create a limited edition of toy-inspired art prints for sale at the event – each print is numbered and signed. Additionally, custom toy artists will be creating pieces that will be available via Ebay auctions ending the night of the opening (details to come).
