Luker by Mark Todd
This is the 4th installment In Mark Todd’s STR WAS series and the first human Mark has created for the series. Card backs were printed on a reisograph to give that underground zine feel and Mark as always delivers on these hand painted beauties. The hand cast resin was based on Mark’s own sculpt. 3.75″ scale carded figure. Signed and numbered edition of 30.
Bio: Like many kids raised in the 70s, Mark was influenced at an early age by Star Wars and comic books. Unlike many kids, he grew up just a few miles from the Vegas strip, neon and glitz looming over the city. Mark’s fancy clients include The New Yorker, New York Times and Getty Publishing among others and is the co-creator of the book “Whatcha’ Mean, What’s A Zine?”, a creative guide to making self-published comics. Currently, you can find his paintings in Los Angeles at Vielmetter Gallery and in Texas at Webb Gallery. He graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California where he co-teaches illustration with his wife, artist Esther Pearl Watson. Home life includes their daughter Lili, an aspiring artist herself.

When Janky Toys and Mark Todd team up it equals KEANU!!! What’s funny about this series is that releasing just one of these at a time would not work conceptually. All 5 have to come out at the same time.
