Of all the work to flow through the site over the last few months, there are a variety of artists that standout, but none as much as Rsin. We first met at NYCC last year, and when he introduced himself I had no idea who he was because I assumed Rsin was pronounced 'Resin'. So there was this really long, awkward pause until I realized that 'Arson' was in fact Rsin. Sorry for the silly side story, but I've heard other people pronounce his name wrong and I wanted to make sure everyone knows how it's said before I spend a bunch of time explaining how awesome he is.

A little bit from Rsin after finding out he won

I sent Rsin a quick email last night telling him that he won and here was his response:

Please let everyone know that I thank them for their support over the past 5 years. I feel I've grown a lot from my first piece done in sharpies. I'm constantly learning and experimenting with new ways to create. However, I would be no where without the help of fellow artists, galleries, shops, and all those who commission my work allowing me to experiment and grow the world of Whispers. I really don't think anyone will ever know how much it means to me, or how much I love painting and sculpting toys. Also, none of this would be possible without my amazing supportive wife, everything I do she makes possible. Thanks, and I will continue to push myself to grow, as long as everyone will have me.

So Keegan.... really man, thanks. I am not used to good things happening to me. 5 years ago I never thought that I would be where I am, with 300+ customs sold, and doing the things I am. I started to paint and sculpt (badly at first lol) cause it let me get away, forget some things. So things like this just make me thankful that some one like yourself can appreciate and see the work I try to put in on every piece. Really man, thanks.

Who is Rsin anyway?

Rsin, aka Lonnie, hails from Pennsylvania, but judging by how many shows he makes appearance at you'd think he's just customizing in a giant Winnebago as he travels the country displaying and talking art. According to Trampt he's participated in about 10 shows just this year including Bellicosity, Urban Decay : 3, Playsam 500, Candy Coated Custom Show, They Came From the Streets II, Vinyl Thoughts Art Show : 2, and probably a few more that aren't in the site or don't have a date on them. He also showed up at Kidrobot in NY to do a live painting session right in the store. If you follow Rsin on Twitter like I do, then you'll see the man never sleeps. WIP shots at 2am, 7am, 3pm, 10pm ... it doesn't matter, Rsin is always working.

Rsin showing at SDCC 2012

Over the last few weeks Rsin has been talking about all his SDCC 2012 work, and I was blown away by what he produced. Not only did he knock out two 7" Munnys, an 8" Dunny, and a 10" MAD*L, but he thought why not create an 18 pieces blindbox Dunny series? All of which you can find next week at the Dragatomi booth #4935.

In closing, Rsin has been constantly refining his craft, working on more and more sculpting, and just getting better and better with each piece that I see come across the site. For all of those reasons, and wondering what he'll do with all these toys he's never worked with, we're declaring Rsin the winner of the 'For the Love of Art' giveaway.

Hey also want to thank those that donated the items.  To be honest I didn't even read over what was all donated untill after I got the email from Keegan about winning this.  So thats why it wasn't included in the message above.  But I appreciate it.

Well deserved! Congratulations!

Keegan, I think it would be to everyones' benefit if you could proofread and correct RSIN's response since there are a couple typos. Nothing that was your doing, it is just a few things to spell correct to make his response better.
