The Plucker is a beautiful graphic novel designed by one of the best illustrators of all time, Gerald D Brom. As soon as we looked at the book, we were totally impressed by the atmosphere and its characters. We did not imagine at all to have the opportunity to work with Brom. 'Jack', the book's main character, has a simple, unique, and inimitable image.
So it was that Jack became the protagonist of our 3D creation, in collaboration with Brom and the excellent sculptor Joaquin "freeman" Palacios. Just have a look at the cover of the book to better understand the soul of the subject we are talking about. As you can see, the three-dimensional version reflects very well the original drawing. It is not easy to be able to make a transition so precise!
Fabrizio "Rusto" Russo officially painted the special and original 'Jack' version for the project MuMi - Museum of Miniatures. The miniature was officially presented at the contest of Monte San Savino Show in 2013 where it won the first prize in its category and the Best of Show.
Due to several requests, we decided to make this miniature commercial, thus putting it on sale in early 2014. This was a very special project for us. The miniature Jack in "The Plucker" was made under the Brom’s license and artistic guidance. The height of this miniature is 75mm; it was printed in high quality resin by GRX Créations. The print was made in limited edition, 150 copies, after which the mold was destroyed. The limited edition was entirely sold in about two weeks. The entire profit was allocated to Fundacion PUPI Javier Zanetti, the former captain of Inter Football Club in Milan. Zanetti signed all certificates of authenticity thanking every buyer for having helped his charitable organization. Some buyers decided to add additional funds to support the foundation.
The miniature was sold unassembled and unpainted. Here you can see the kit in its beauty and wholness.
The last step of our charity project in collaboration with the Fundacion PUPI was to sell, through an eBay auction, the original copy number 1 of 150 miniatures; this copy was painted by Marco "Divaz" Di Vairo. Once the entire project was completed, we organized a meeting with Javier Zanetti, during which we delivered directly into his hands a check for the Fundacion PUPI with all the proceeds we obtained, for an amount of € 4,069.50.
