buff monster x yoskay

thanks to buff for inviting me to this exciting custom show, 'the monster within.' . i really like the simply shaped toy and i had fun customizing this little piece.
the show will be at GR2 and it will be first time for me to show with them. i can't help but to be excited about having a piece in their store, since i have always been a big fun of giant robot magazine.

anyway here is my contribution to the show:

my pineapple monster, mixed media, 2010

and the flyer for the event.
