Absolutely gutted. Very best wishes for the future, Huck.

Incredibly sad.

Huck's unique style and vision made him THE artist that got me interested in the art toy/designer toy/urban vinyl world (along with Coarse a bit later on). He was also the impetus for my instigating This is Not a Toy because I had tried to hold a solo exhibition of his work in Toronto and for various reasons it couldn't be done.

His work was featured very prominently in the exhibition and of course, in the catalogue which is now a collector's item.

I also feel very fortunate to have done the Huck Gee Project and will always treasure those pieces.

He'll be back. An ARTIST (capital letters fully intentional) of his talent can't be held back for long.

Incredible artist, always loved his work and would have a lot more if I could afford it :) Best of luck to him in his next endeavor, and as is life his journey might circle back to the toy scene one day.

I wish I could have afforded more of his work. His attention to detail always astounded me and his art style completely grabbed my attention. I can't wait to see the next part of his journey, but I'm also very bummed to see him go.

He got pretty nasty about KR for a while with his comments. I don't know the story or why there was beef, but I'm hoping he didn't burn any bridges he regrets.

I always consistently liked his work...hes one of 3 artists I have a separate and specific display for. His zombie dunnys are among my top 5 favorites. His Gold Life series is my top 3 favorite series!
