Surrealist painter Greg “Craola” Simkins is one of my favorite contemporary artists. Since his amazing paintings sell for thousands and thousands of dollars (and deservedly so), the chances of a working gal like me being able to add one of his masterpieces to my modest collection of artsy fartsyness is somewhat slim. Fortunately, Greg has just released this totally cool new vinyl collectible, the Cap’n Rotnclaw – Custom Brine edition. This special edition Cap’n Rotnclaw features a brand new color variant designed by Craola and hand painted in the USA by Dead Presidents Designs. Isn’t he cute? Available in a very limited edition of only 24 pieces (23 now, because I just ordered mine) it doesn’t take much brainpower to figure out that you could very easily own an exclusive Craola work of art for just $74.99. Affordable! Cap’n Rotnclaw is made from PVC vinyl, stands 7-inches tall and arrives in window box packaging for easy display and safe keeping.
