this is a fairly lame design that doesn't warrant a FRACTION of the asking sales price. this thing would hafta be twenty inches for me to even consider burnin' a benji on it... customs i can understand selling for this much and much more. but production pieces, no. (unless they're really hot and signed by a very collectable artist). which this ain't...so how big izzit, anyway?


In the end we decided against this guy...which is, I think 15" tall or so. Steven Lee, however, IMHO, is a big name, just under-recognized...he's the designer that did the original designs for Qee...the Bear, Cat, Toyer & Dog, I believe. Currently, he operates in the tradition of the likes of Michael Lau and Eric So...very boutique, self produced stuff (I'm obviously not comparing the content of the art, but the business model if you will)...

I liked this design, it fits into Steven's little world very well, but just a little too much money for us to take a gamble on, oh well. I never did find out if it was 15 pieces or 150 pieces....I think it was probably 15.
