Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde and Ikea

by Paul Strauss

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought a piece of furniture from Ikea, spent countless hours assembling it, only to have some slightly out-of-the ordinary use cause it to fail catastrophically. That’s exactly what happened to this artist when he overstuffed his drawers with his drawers and tried to move them. But rather than take the pile of scrap wood and leave it for the bums in the alley, he took his broken eggs and scrambled him up some Pac-Man.

Blinky Inky Pinky Clyde

Pixel Party’s handmade wooden ghosts are cut from the remnants of a dilapidated Ikea dresser. Each ghost is about 7-inches square, painted in bright colors with paper eyeballs, then coated with a shiny coat of gloss epoxy. According to the artist “he’s so shiny, you’ll want to lick him”. Trust me, I picked up one his bright red Blinkies at this weekend’s Renegade Craft Fair, and epoxy gloss doesn’t taste very good.

He’s currently got a Blinky for sale over on Etsy for $30, but plans on cranking out complete sets of all four ghosts this January for $100. In the mean time, be sure to check out Pixel Party’s online shop, as well as his Flickr albums.

    I thought I was just a bored guy with a basement full of tools… but I’ll take artist if i can get it – even if mine are $6,970 cheaper than space invader’s ghosts
