Dr. Apples: Ma Pomme 4" custom Munny

Dr. Apples: Ma Pomme 4" custom Munny

Dr. Apples is known for his tacky, uh I mean vibrant tastes in clothing. This is the first time his mother dressed him up.  He wasn’t a fan then but it grew into me searching for cuff links on clearance every month. We are currently on the search to find his mother. She was kidnapped by fairies when he was a teen. Come with us on this journey of wonder and frustrations.

 

This is a custom, one-of-one  4”  Munny of Dr. Apples. The base is Munny.  His face and hands are made from polymer clay. His lovely brown eyes are resined to bring out the silent anger.  He is wearing his signature black & white custom suit.  This vinyl toy is based from a scene from the Dr. Apples Novella, Dr. Apples: The Origin, The Eye & the Journey. Some versions of the novella have illustrations made exactly from this one-of-one munny. Available here for $250.

 

 

About the artist: Welcome to the wonderful world of Dr. Apples! I am his assistant, Apples (Artist). Formerly known as Applehead, Apples is a lot easier to remember.  I have been hired to do all of the hard work he isn’t willing to do. I also can’t find another job so I’m stuck doing his bidding.  I have  been a professional artist for over 10 years in various mixed media forms. In 2018, I created the character, Dr. Apples & my focus is building on the Dr. Apples franchise. Feel free to sometimes contact me with any questions.
