Artist and storyteller CHOGRIN is back with his latest vinyl collectible toy collection dedicated to podcast master, writer, director, filmmaker, and actor Kevin Smith (Jay and Silent Bob franchise). The Guru Askew series from Unruly Industries and comes in three excellent editions that can also be seen on Slideshow Con from July 19 to July 25.
When talking about being able to create something that is dedicated to Smith, a person who has opened many possibilities for artists, CHOGRIN said,
“Growing up in the 90s, I never thought that one day I’d be making a toy paying tribute to one of my creative heroes. Guru Askew is my tribute to Kevin Smith’s universe and the many different entrepreneurial hats he has worn over the years. From filmmaking, writing comics, to podcasting, Kevin’s trailblazing has allowed and inspired indie filmmakers and artists to get high off their own supply as well. And so, I proudly present to you Kevin Smith, Guru Askew!”
The three designs fans of both Smith and CHOGRIN can pre-order are the Regular Clerks edition done in black and white like the film, a Red-ible Variant, and a Dope (Green) Variant.
