What if artists actually looked like their art? Imagine Jackson Pollock covered in paint drippings. What if Picasso was blue and rose and cube-shaped all over?  That’s the idea behind artist Mike Leavitt’s “Art Army” action figures. Each figure is a sculpted in polymer clay. No simple plastic toy, each figure takes hours to sculpt. Check out some examples of his work below and if you’re money’s right go to his site to order a custom-made Mike Leavitt “Art Army” figure for yourself.
