At the other end of the spectrum, "fierce" as Tyra Banks would call it, is the Michael Lau Mr. Shoe (Sample) that Assault! Design created for the Mr. Shoe (Sample) exhibit at Maharishi's DPMHI Store in Soho, London. It is entitled Mr. Jeep (Sample) and looks pretty sweet! I'm not sure if the artwork for this show will be available for sale or if it is just for exhibit. I guess you'll have to go to the exhibit, which runs from November 26th, 2005 through January 3rd, 2006, to find out. However, to support this exhibition Michael will be releasing new Limited Ed. Mr. Shoe (Sample) figures and tee shirts, all exclusive to DPMHI. This UK show is the first stop of a Europe wide tour, with the next stop being Colette in Paris.
The last thing that I wanted to mention is that Kidrobot will be releasing the Huck Gee designed Don'yoku Dunny with a signing party at Kidrobot in San Francisco on December 1st starting at 6pm. Only 2000 of these were produced, so I'm sure they will fly off of the shelves.
In a time long lost there lived a successful merchant by the name of Don’yoku. Successful being an understatement and the term merchant used very loosely. He was rumored to be one of the country’s highest ranking Yakuza. The proprietor of several acclaimed Geisha houses, it was said that Don’yoku’s real trade was his ability to balance his dealings with both the Yakuza and the country’s politicians, using each to keep the other in check.Radical!
