Sugar Booger - Blue Raspberry Edition
Just over twenty years after comics artist and painter Kevin Scalzo‘s Sugar Booger #18-page mini- comic introduced children of all ages to his adorable and fascinatingly gross character, Sugar Booger is set to come to life for old and new fans alike as an upcoming soft vinyl art toy (7ʺ) from the newly launched Heavy Cream brand.
The figure’s design offers a stylized vision of the original comic character humorously, yet quite accurately, described by Scalzo as “a big magical cartoon bear who makes candy boogers come out of his nose, to the delight of children everywhere.” Seemingly inspired by Scalzo’s 2008 painting created for The Blab! Show, the toy plays with Sugar Booger’s proportions to sweet effect.
The upcoming figure follows Heavy Cream founders Bradley Frank and Josh Divine’s intent to help artists bring their unique visions to art toys as a complement to their primary mediums. Reflecting on the experience of creating the figure, Scalzo remarked that ” I am excited to finally see Sugar Booger immortalized in vinyl, It’s been a dream of mine for a long time. Working with Josh & Bradley has been great, and they really get what Sugar Booger is all about.”
