Nathan Jurevicious Book Release & Signing

Words by Pretty Poopie • Photos by ADDEccentric

Recently Nathan Jurevicious returned to his former home city of Toronto to promote his book, “Scary Girl”. Art and vinyl concept store, Magic Pony held a special book signing event for him on Saturday, November 20th from 2-5PM. Fans ranging from six-years old to couples in their mid-30s were in attendance. Nathan took his time chatting with each fan that lined up to meet him while he personalized every single book with illustrations he drew on the spot.

Sitting on either side of him were his two children, also with pencils and paper in hand, doodling away. His daughter even gave him a run for his money when she drew her own version of Scary Girl in record speed! Fans who attended the event were also able to preview the new “Scarygirl” XBox game, which is still in the works.

“Scarygirl” is a graphic novel about the origin and adventures of a strange little girl with an eye patch on a quest to find her roots. Her story is told strictly through colorful vector illustrations, with no dialogue save for the occasional sound effect to carry the plot along. The book also features a variety of Nathan's concept drawings and mixed media artwork relating to his imaginative universe. An interview with Nathan conducted by Kidrobot's Paul Budnitz and Chad Phillips is also included in the book's “Intermission” section in between stories. The book is now available in stores and online.

Jon Paul Kaiser's "Skeletal" custom Tiger Baby

I am at a loss for words... as Jon Paul Kaiser wows us all once again with a custom vinyl figure. This time around he takes his unreal black-n-white skills to a whole new level on what most would consider their vinyl "holy grail"... a Tiger Baby originally designed by Sam Flores. This was completed for a guy in the UK (from the KR boards) named Barry from MadeByAnalogue who has a collection of Tiger Babys... what a jerk :-) He had a spare one and trusted it to JPK with the instructions "Make it skeletal themed"... Jon took it from there and work his magic and above is the result, I have envy oozing from my pours right now! Great job once again Jon and congrats to Barry for owning an amazing piece of art!
