Custom Groper: Kathleen Voigt

Man! The creativity that people bring to the table NEVER ceases to amaze me. Once again, someone takes the base platform and goes bigger with it. Meet: "Heartsy Fartsy"

From the Artist:
"It's all about Love, Baby!" ...Those are his Words every time, he greets his Friends while making a Hand Heart. He is quite the "special" little Fella, thinks he's a total Bad ass and always stinks up the Short Bus with his Farts. But nobody gets ever mad at him, because he "produces" butt nuggets in the Shape of cute little Hearts. His fucked up crooked Teeth needed some Attention, so he got a pair of Braces and he's showing them off quite proudly!

Definitely a unique take on the Groper Platform, and over here at Triplikid we LOVE it. Check out the pics below!

Custom Groper: Angella Powell

Angella was the first to go beyond the basic Groper platform, and man, did she have fun with it. She developed a small back story on the character:

The rare and elusive Gropermunk is a member of the Lanates family, first discovered by Dr. Triplikid a number of years ago. He resided in the deep dark mossy wilds of the Canadian Boreal forests, but when the berries disappear and the snow falls, he relies on the kindness of humans and pleads for shelter… and an unlimited supply of berries.


With antlers, berries, and a superb paint job, she is quickly becoming one of my favorite artists on the net. Check her work out here:  Angella Powell

Custom Gropers: Eddie Ortega

Eddie is another person to customize multiple Gropers, coming in just after Jonathan's. If you recall, he did the sweet green and yellow Gygor inspired Groper that was eventually auctioned off to raise money for the Newtown shooting victims.

This one has a slick Wicked Witch theme, and I think is even better than his first showing (which I loved). Great job, Eddie!

Custom Gropers: Jonathan Dubose

One thing I love about Jonathan's Gropers are the smooth color schemes he has going on. These guys look GREAT! He has the distinction of being the first to customize 2 Gropers. I was excited to hear how well the process went and that we'd get to see another showing from him. He is also a great designer & sculptor! You can check out more of his work at DuBoseArt







Lots of new custom Gropers coming!

Work and life has been CRAZY these last couple weeks. Thankfully we just wrapped up animation on "Epic", and I have my weekend to catch up a bit here. Look for new posts over the coming days showing off some new custom Gropers.
