Tristan Eaton and Dell….really??

Posted in toys with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2009 by JD

I pretty much have this man to blame for my obsession with collectible vinyl toys. One of the main artists to help get Kidrobot off the ground, the founder of Thunderdog Studios and pretty much the sole person to meld street art and toys together and then pretty much take it mainstream (in my eyes anyway). This guy is just pure awesomeness in my book and I really wish I could have 1/2 the success he has had doing something I love (art). I think you all might be surprised at how many of you have seen this man’s artwork already, just take a look at the client list at the website above.

To be honest with you, when I saw the video above I thought to myself, “Dell!!!….really?? Come on Tristan”, but then I gave it a bit more thought and realized how happy I would be if I was ever commissioned by anyone to put my artwork on something to be seen worldwide by people from all walks of life. I am happy for the guy, all an artist ever wants is for his artwork to be seen and appreciated by many without having to compromise his vision.

Be sure to check out all 3 designs here, and hey….if you haven’t been convinced yet that Apples are the only computers anyone should own (they are btw) then you can go here and buy one for yourself.
