Are you designer toy fan? Even if your not, you’ll love this twist on the DIY Munny. A two foot inflatable character canvas!
Chicago based designers Mike and Tony design anything they can get their hands on. If it has a flat surface they design it. They now want to explore beyond the flat and into the round world of inflatable characters as custom, collectible art. Think Munny on steroids!
What they have created is Blimpus, a blank, inflatable canvas with a large head to paint on and feet to stand on. Standing at just over two feet tall, with short nubby legs, these inflatables are made of an ink-receptive PVC vinyl. Just imagine the possibilities! Blimpus is currently a project on Kickstarter, and you can help the creators see this project to fruition by making a pledge. They have more than one option available. Check out the styles below…
Entry-level Blimpus: A white vinyl character which you can customize using anything from markers to tape, to spray paint and screen printing. Let the illustrator in you run wild.
Solid Color Blimpus: A cyan, magenta or yellow solid color vinyl character and a vinyl sticker kit which includes facial features to get you started. Peel, stick, cut, chop, blend, bleach, mix and match, the choice is yours. This material also accepts paint, markers, etc., just like the Blank White Blimpus.
Designer Edition Character Blimpus: A fully printed character entirely designed by us and printed by our vendor in CA via digital transfer.
Visit Blimpus on Kickstarter to make a pledge and learn more details about the project. As little as $10 gets you a 9×12 mini poster. Funding ends on Tuesday, March 29, 2011.
