Aquaman "Munny" - 2008

This funky little statue was sculpted by newest F.O.A.M. member Kristen Livingston.

Says Kristen: "A
side from comics, I'm pretty into painting scale models. Just recently I decided to expand my area of interest a tiny bit and try a DIY vinyl toy. The one I tried my hand at is called "Munny", and if you do a quick search you can find a whole bunch of info on them. Anyways, for my first one I ended up doing Aquaman. It was sort of inspired from watching Superfriends on Boomerang (a station I don't usually get when I'm up in Canada). There's nothing quite like learning magic tricks from Aquaman, right?

There's a bit of sculpting, but nothing intense. It was all done with a brush and acrylic paint. It's 4" tall. Hopefully I can save up enough money without squandering it on comics/video games/more Munnys and get an airbrush sooner or later. Then I'll try my hand a larger 7" Munny."

I loved it, and told Kristen so. I love any kind home-made Aquaman item, since its the product of such devotion to the character.

Plus, as I also told her, this Aquaman looks a little like Butters from South Park to me. And since he's my favorite character from that show, bonus points to Kristen!

Cute. But what's up with Aquamunny's tail?

That's a pretty sweet paint job for only being 4 inches tall! Great job!

That's cool! And hat's off to you sir as a fellow "Butters" fan as well!

His face reminds me of the "Ice Man" they found in that glacier in the early 90s. Very cool tho.
