Meanwhile, in Los Angeles…

Meanwhile, in Los Angeles…

Cursed with perpetual drunkenness by his trickster brother. Determined to find his magic hammer. Inexplicably, he speaks only in haikus.
THIS…is Thorku.

THIS…is Thorku.

NEW PHOTO PROJECT: #Thorku.
Thorku tells the story of Thor’s search for the mighty Mjölnir. The trickster Loki has banished the weapon to the ancient city of Los Angeles and Thor must find his way across the United States to find it. Not exactly the hardest thing for a god of thunder to accomplish, so Loki has placed him under a spell of drunkenness. On top of that, he can only communicate in the ancient poetry form of haiku. Good luck, Thor.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: I’ll be mailing Mjölnir out to a friend of mine in L.A. for safekeeping. We’ll get a picture of it from time to time to let Thor know it’s okay. If you’re out in L.A., make sure to keep a lookout for it at the clubs. Ain’t no party like a Mjölnir party. Meanwhile, I’m also shipping Thor to New York. The rules are that a person can hand off Thor to anyone they know to help him reach his goal—but he needs to travel the country the old fashioned way. No shipping. He can go on a plane as long as it’s not stopping in California. As one person hands him off to another, they can send me a picture of Thor in their city and I’ll add the haiku captions to tell the story of his travel.
The hope is that we’ll get Thor to visit as many states as possible on his way out west. This is the first time I’ve done a project like this that will see my action figures in the hands of strangers, but I’m weirdly okay with it. I want to see where he ends up, so this is like my trust fall into the hands of America. Don’t let me down, mang.
First image will be coming in the next couple of weeks once I get all the logistics lined up.

And that’s a wrap!
I want to thank everyone for following along with Poses this past year and a half. Now that his Australia trip is complete, Iron Man is coming home to retire.
As one era ends, ANOTHER BEGINS, which means you’ll see a new photo series showing up here soon. I’m putting together plans now, plans that may or may not involve another figure of action getting mailed around the world.
HUGE thanks to everyone who gave Iron Man a home over the life of the series and took great photos for me to caption. Joey and Thomas from Perth were the last in the line of badass mofos, which included friends in Chicago, NYC, Raleigh, multiple cities in Florida, Kansas, South Dakota, Uganda, and a bunch of other cool spots. You guys are the best!
I’ll start posting the new series as soon as I have everything set up. Until then, you can always take a look back through the #poseswithironman tag to catch any you might’ve missed.
Thanks again for sticking with me! Be back soon…ish.

It’s like I’m looking into the future. OF HANDSOME.

What’s that? Oh, it’s the sound of Thor not making a billion dollars. Asgardian tears. So sweet.

I’m really into this book. Tore right through it. Devoured every page.

Before I go back to the States, I want to see which direction the water turns when I flush Ant-Man down the toilet.
