About the Author:

A UK native, Huck Gee is a contemporary artist, illustrator, toy maker, and designer best known by toy enthusiasts for his iconic Skullhead character and Gold Life art creations. Heavily influenced by Japanese and Hong Kong pop art, Gee calls his style Bastardized Asian Pop Culture . The demand for Huck s Custom Toy Art and illustrations has grown quite immense, with small runs of hand crafted Art Toys and original prints selling out in seconds online and shipping to art collectors worldwide. Huck s works have been exhibited in galleries worldwide and in 2007 his Hello My Name Is 8 Dunny was accepted into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. In addition, Huck has also consigned several pieces for one of the world s leading fine art auction houses: Christie s Auction House. He s released numerous limited production toys through Kidrobot including some of the most exclusive and sought after Dunnys to date, figures for The Standard, DJ Qbert, and a series of figures for Barney s New York which came dressed in the 2005 spring collections of five of the world s most famous fashion designers: Marc Jacobs, Dries Van Noten, Jil Sander, Rick Owens, and Duckie Brown. His extraordinary skills with customizing vinyl toys earned him the title of Best Customizer in the 2009 Kidrobot Artist Awards. Most recently Huck collaborated with Ken Block and DC Shoes for Ken s Monster World Rally Team WRC logo entitled Blockhead . Coinciding with this project were several limited edition shoe and clothing runs. Huck currently maintains a studio in San Francisco and when not busy planning world domination, he spends his free time playing with his daughter and pretending to be a racecar driver. Not necessarily at the same time.
