This dapper cephalopod is “Sir Inkwell (The Gentleman Squid)” and he was made by Adam “messymedia" Whitnall. To look at him, you might never guess that Sir Inkwell is actually a customized 3-inch Android figure. It just goes to show what one can accomplish with creative vision and skill with Super Sculpey. It also goes to show that tentacles and mustaches make a seriously awesome combination.
"Sir Inkwell (The Gentleman Squid)" was created on commission. If you’re interested in procuring commission of your own contact Whitnall through his website. We’re willing to bet you’ll end up with something awesome.

This tentacular creature is the Monster of the Mariana Trench, a fantastic custom figure created by A Little Stranger for the upcoming Giant Robot Biennale 3 group show. It even glows in the dark and appears to have gotten the better of a little submersible. Pretty awesome. 

Both the monster and the submersible are impressively customized figures. Holly (aka A Little Stranger) details describes her painstaking creation process:

"He started life as a David Horvath Flatwood vinyl. I created Flatwood a new face from phosphorescent polymer clay and hand painted glass eyes. I made him a set of wire legs and skinned the whole piece in soft polar fleece with iridescent stitching detail all over. His tentacles have glow-in-the-dark suckers. The submarine began as a Giant Robot Big Boss Robot, i removed his head and replaced it with a control panel made from scratch, before adding lights and a weathered finish. Monster of the Mariana Trench features phosphorescent and UV reactive elements, and looks great displayed under a blacklight.”

The Giant Robot Biennale 3 opens on September 22nd and runs through January 20th, 2013 at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, CA.

While some might argue that they’re already a bit creepy, The Smurfs are generally pretty cheerful little creatures. Jeff Beck of Menace Inc. Studios set about to effectively counter that benign impression by transforming a Munny figure it into this truly gruesome “Zombie Smurf” with the help of some Magic Sculpt and acrylic paint. Smurftastic!
Jeff’s ghastly little blue zombie was exhibited at the Vinyl Thoughts 3 group art show that took place on September 13th at Life in Deep Ellum in Dallas, Texas.
