The Osaka Popstar Devil Dog Art Show (there’s a mouthful) is opening in NYC. Net proceeds of all art sales will be donated to the Picasso Veterinary Fund (which helps rescued animals)
An eclectic mix of over a 100 unique, incredibly talented artists from all over the world have customized Devil Dog vinyl figures into one of a kind toy-works of art! Artists include The Pizz, Seth Rogan (yup, the actor), Rockin’ Jelly Bean, Shepard Fairey, Ron English, and a bunch of artists/creators from Robot Chicken, Topp’s Wacky Packages, Garbage Pail Kids, and more. The exclusive viewing will be held at the Showroom Gallery (2nd Avenue at 7th street) in NYC on October 31, 2008 (Halloween night) from 7 – 11pm. You can read more about the show here.

What’s Osaka Popstar? It’s a punk group (and art project) John Cafiero leads consisting of members of the Ramones, Misfits, Black Flag, the Voidoids and more. They recently released a new live CD and are featured in Topps’ latest Garbage Pail Kids series with art by John Pound.
