N.C. Winters just posted up some fantastic pictures of his latest piece... and no it's not on a canvas/panel, it's on a set of wooden Russian nesting dolls for the upcoming show titled "Doll Haus: The Modern Matryoshka" which is launching this Saturday, April 9th at Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim California! N.C.'s piece is called "Quintessential Quandary" and features his amazingly paintlery style where the largest one measures 7" tall and goes down in size from there. The dept of each piece is so extreme and just like all of N.C.'s pieces I am blown away at the crazy detail.
Okedoki's original figure, which is being produced through VTSS Toys! Titled "Benny the Dreamer", this figure will be made of polystone resin, limited to an edition of 200 pieces, stand 11.5" tall and is set to release this April. I received one of these in the mail today and I can honestly say it is unlike any packaging for a toy I have ever seen... and as you can see the laser engraved bamboo box showcases the elegance that lies within! Stay tuned for a full reveal and review in the coming days.
Squink has just released a super limited edition 2 piece laser cut super glossy acrylic keychain that features his bunny head logo!

We love Shawnimals... and so does New York, which is precisely why the great folks over at myplasticheart have snagged him up for an EPIC plush solo show titled "Keep it Ninja 2".

Known for his loose doodle type drawing style, artist Jon Burgerman is taking the leap from illustration to plush thanks to the fantastic work of Holly aka A Little Stranger as she took Jon's burger'ish design and created an awesome rendition from it!

Argonaut Resins is proud to show off a few updated pics of some of the finished Jelly Bots and their custom matchbox packaging. These were all hand painted by Selina Briggs of The Jelly Empire, and as you can see the bots match the boxes :-) Also, if you are familiar with the work that Eric does, you know that there is going to be a whole plethora of tints, and shown off in the above picture is just one of the variant figures glowing nicely in the dark! These are almost done, so look forward to more pictures and news soon. Also, remember that The Jelly Empire now has a table #L23 for MOCCA festival... which these will be on display at!

Travis is also releasing with each purchase a limited edition print in which you can choose from 2 designs. This is such a fun series and if you have the first you gotta get the second... so head on over HERE now and pick some up.
Crazy Label x Jonathan Edwards, we are getting a nice set of pictures on his blog showcasing the packaging of this lofty fellow. I am digging on the simple design of the box, which allows for the cloud-cut window display window to reveal the figure. There is nothing for a size comparison, but I can image this box being prob 8.5" tall as the figure itself is around 8"! These are up for pre-sale HERE right now for only $39.95, and are planned to ship out next month... so go pull the trigger!
Jay222's "Big Trouble in Little China" tribute show, which opens Saturday, April the 9th, 2011 at Dragatomi, we are pleased to bring you Ritzy Periwinkle's submission. This piece titled "Gracie" is an 11"x17" limited edition of 10 pieces print done up in true Ritzy P. fashion, and show off Kim Cattrall's character in her ceremonial wedding dress... gotta love those blues Ritzy always uses, and you can always see those clouds in the background of her pieces, great work!
