Here’s my piece for the Custom Jouwe show taking place on October 8th at the ArtyFarty Gallery in Cologne, Germany. I took a slightly different approach to this piece than I normally would when it comes to one of my totem toy designs. I wanted to play around with using different shades of the same color to create a more subtle overall design, but then throw in a higher contrast color to make specific areas of the design really pop. I like the way this guy turned out, so you’ll probably see a few more pieces like this from me down the road.
If you happen to be in Cologne (long shot), be sure you check out the show which opens tonight and runs through the 23rd. If you miss the Cologne opening, from October 30th through November 20th the show moves to Zimmermann & Heitmann in Duesseldorf. If you’re no where near Germany, you can see a few more shots of my Totem Jouwe on Flickr.
