Dave Bondi’s Akashi mashes Mario and Mickey Mouse

[As originally posted on Tomopop]

The world of designer vinyl is a strange one, to be sure, but if you are thinking to yourself “What in the … what the hell am I looking at here?”, I’d guess you wouldn’t be the only one.

Artist Dave Bondi decided to a pop culture mashup by creating Akashi, who is a mix between Mickey Mouse and Mario. Measuring in at 9 inches and priced at $65, this piece ought to appeal to collectors who have a firm sense of humor. I have a feeling gamers may not relate to this piece as well an vinyl collectors, but I could be wrong. Are you loving or loathing it?
