The fine folks over at Toddland commissioned Nakatomi founder, Tim Doyle, to produce a print for Yo Gabba Gabba! Since Doyle was such a HUGE fan of the show (and if you’re not a fan of the show, something is very strange about you) he decided to produce an entire SERIES of character prints!
The Toddland crew is super-tight with the Gabba crew, and they pretty much told Doyle- “Draw whatever!” That kind of creative freedom with a property this big is pretty much unheard of, and shows a lot of faith in our talent over here!
This 18×24 7 color print is signed and numbered in an edition of 130- and a glow in the dark variant edition of ONLY 30!
Both prints will be available exclusively over at the Toddland/ Huckleberry booth at the San Diego Comic Con coming up REALLY SOON!
A little bit from Doyle about this print-
“I have two small kids. And so I end up watching a lot of Children’s TV. And I cannot believe how freaking cool Yo Gabba Gabba is. It has more music by GREAT bands in one 30 minute episode than a full day’s worth of MTV, and the designs are just golden. GOLDEN! When Toddland first approached me about producing a print for them, they offered me a BUNCH of licenses to chose from, but once I saw Gabba on that list, nothing else came close! I had a lot of Moebius on my mind when I was drawing this thing, and I think it shows- Muno’s realm on the show is all rock-based, and he even produced a rock-sculpture of himself for an art show they had on the program. So it just made sense to me to have Muno rocking out with his guitar in a garden of Easter-Island sized Muno heads! And the best thing about this print- all I had to do was submit a little doodle of it, and it was approved immediately! Toddland and Yo Gabba Gabba are the bestest!”
Any remaining prints will be on sale on the Toddland store after the convention, but we’re definitely not holding our breath- these should go fast! Nakatomi won’t have any for sale (we don’t think) until we get the rest of the prints in the series completed, so make sure you get ’em from TODDLAND!
Look for a new print in the series soon(ish)!
And while you’re waiting, here’s a sweet Muno song about BUGS!-
