Hide your sweaters from the Invasion of the BeheMOTH! This dynamic designer toy by Mike “Poopbird” Groves floats like a butterfly, but stings like a giant laser-eyed kaiju intent on destroying the city.
Artist Statement: I wanted to create a trio of critters that seemed familiar but also had some new moves we haven’t seen before. I didn’t want to just add random tentacles and eyeballs to make an animal seem monstrous. I super love using nature as a reference and then putting things through the ‘Poopbird’ style filter. I want to see fantastic creatures that still (somehow) feel believable. Like a jackalope but better!
Artist Bio: Hello! I’m Mike Groves and I’m a full-time tattoo artist currently working in Athens, GA. I feel like I have entire universe trapped in my head threatening my sanity. I create art to help these beings escape into this world! Plus, I have three cats.
