Visell Rad Bat IG

Amanda Visell has been extremely prolific as of late, collaborating with Michelle Valigura with producing and consistently releasing a myriad of hand-painted resin limited edition production pieces, is truly an inspiration to resin slingers out there, IMHO. And as well is a staunch example of creators doing their own designs, without the need to appropriate pop culture imagery, IMHO.

Their latest release sees Amanda return to an older character (you’ll never go wrong with a bat on a deck!), with both ALBINO and HAIRY SPARKLE RAT BAT currently available to purchase here. Both priced at US$90, Albino is limited to 25 and Hairy Sparkle is 15.
