> DESCRIPTION

The Boombot portable speaker line was conceived from urban vinyl toy customization.  We are proud to return to some of our core roots by getting to work with some really talented SF based local artists.  CRAYnial will be held at Big Umbrella Studios on Friday, May 11th, 2012.  If you’re familiar with toys like the Kidrobot Munny, you may recognize a similar aesthetic in the Boombot.  These vinyl toys are actually engineered to be customized by artists.  They’re also known as DIY toys.  The culture has been somewhat of an underground spin-off from the popular sneaker-head and skate deck customizing community.  This medium is yet another fun 3D canvas to express yourself on.

Boombotix CEO commented, “CRAYnial is going to be a really cool way for us to collaborate with other artists while also taking a step back and digging for new artistic inspiration on this medium.  I always admired looking back and seeing one shape/character take on a wide array of identities when I put on vinyl toy shows back in 2007-08.  Boombotix was founded originally with the intent to bring function/tech to these cool toys, so now it’ll be cool to revert and dig back into the artistic side.  Who knows…we might even find the next design for our future artist series….”
