"Bringing Home A Baby Bumblebee" custom 8" Dunny by Kevin Gosselin for G40 Art Summit

When an artists goes quiet for a little while it's either one of two things... either they have stopped doing art completely, or they have been mad busy with tons of projects, the second of the two is the case for artist Kevin Gosselin as he is not only getting pieces ready for his 3-man show at Dragatomi next week, but he also completed this amazing custom 8" Dunny titled "Bringing Home A Baby Bumblebee" for the custom vinyl show at the G40 Art Summit in DC on May 20th - June 17th! Kevin states that "Originally I was just going to do another rock golem piece but in the style of the red rocks of Utah but when I finished I felt it didn't have the personality I had hoped for. I knew I need something else so I decided to add a supporting character. When reading up on what animals would be present in that environment I came upon a still of Beaky Buzzard and Bugs Bunny. As I am a huge fan of the old Warner Brothers Looney Tunes I was immediately sold." It's really cool to hear the story about the piece and visually see the progression that Kevin took to get it to where it is now, and the incorporation of the WB characters is just awesome... and just look at this, friggen super impressive! Great work Kevin, and I look forward to seeing what you have in store for your show at Dragatomi :-)
