This Grum will only be available to buy within the Halloween period, 30th Sep to the 31st  October.

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!

Brad/Grum grew up loving the earlier Tim Burton films and his work has definitely been influenced by him over the years, planting a seed of the macabre in the mind, so when the Grums (the self chosen name of his collectors and followers) asked him  to make a Beetlejuice Grum for this years Halloween release he was a little bit overjoyed, why hadn’t he done this before?

Brad set about sculpting the piece by absolutely destroying one of the blanks, tearing away the hood to make way for Beetlejuices crazy hair, before letting the epoxy clay dry and beginning the painting process. Utilising layers of acrylic, inkwash and Culture Hustles Black 2.0 to bring the little dude to life, before getting the quintessential layers of varnish down to protect the careful paintjob, all in all around 7-8 hours of sculpting and painting to bring him out of the deadworld he usually inhabits, even though it would be easier to say his name 3 times to summon him.

The following is information taken directly from their website, click on the headers to go directly to the page for more in depth information.

Our Values
We are an organisation driven by our values. This means that the decisions that we make are based upon the values that we share across Julian Support.

We place the needs of the people that we support at the heart of all our decision making, ensuring that the services that we provide meet their expectations and are delivered by staff who are well trained and feel motivated to work for us.

Strengths and Recovery
Too many services concentrate on finding out what is wrong and putting it right. We concentrate on finding out what is right and helping people use that strength to help manage what is wrong.

 

The things that work for people are often the things that they have a passion for or interest in. They can also be aspects of their personality that make them who they are, for example, their sense of humour, ability to empathise or competitive streak.

 

About the Beetlejuice Grum Reapur
Each Grum is handcast by artist Brad Rumble in polyurethane resin, a similar substance to that which they make car bumpers out of, so that means its incredibly durable and resistant to high heat (seriously, he tried melting one as an experiment and it didn’t even scorch). They are all handpainted from a blank white base, primed in a grey airbrush primer, then varnished using Montana Gold premium spray varnish, then signed and numbered on the bottom.

Each Grum is handcrafted carefully and lovingly made to the highest of standards in the highest quality materials.

This is a collectors item for ages 14 and up.

Please note these are made to order and will ship in 15-21 business days, this allows for the materials to cure properly.

This model is:

l Handcast

l Handpainted

l Polyurethane Resin - 110g

l Grum Measure 7cm x 7cm x 6.5cm

l Comes with stickers (subject to availability)

l Only available for a limited time (1st October to 31st October)

New Orleans- Compton III’s debut original art toy, SPY BOY, has some company with the arrival of his potna, Z’Bo!

Laced with bold hues and accent pieces tinted with 24karat gold color, you might as well refer to him as Mr. New Orleans— the biggest of big, Crescent City true shot caller. 

 

Z'Bo is the latest art toy from Compton’s featured series including his debut original art toy titled, SPY BOY. On Saturday, July 30, 2022, Axiom Art Gallery will host the official release of the original art toy, Z’Bo, by Compton III in New Orleans, Louisiana. A limited quantity of signed pieces will be available for sale in person at the release event.
