The extremely well-received "Neo Indigenous" solo art show by Marka27 (recap HERE) is moving from the East Coast to the West… Yes, that's right, his amazing exhibit of paintings, custom figures & speakers, silk screen panels, and prints will be on display in Los Angeles starting July 7th at Crewest Gallery... and they put together the above video interview with Marka... a great watch! If you've never had the experience of seeing his unique blend of Aztec, Asian and African influences, then this is an absolute must for you! "Neo Indigenous" opens on July 7th from 7-10PM and runs through July 29th.

I know this is a few months old... but nonetheless, it's an awesome video that lets you meet the Monsterist. Also... he goes by the identity Pete Fowler. Several or so years ago in London town scavenging through PlayLounge, I was introduced to this man of mystery. Today, I am still nerding out on his work. Check out Mr. Fowler having a chinwag with Dudebox in their Inspire to Create video series. It is also a peak at the Pete Fowler and Fiends platform vinyl toys

This new capsule collection is for Fall 2012, and you can get your hands on the wears in July or snag some gear at Urban Outfitters. The project will be a venture between OBEY and the Keith Haring Foundation. Check out the above vimeo goodness as it gives us a sneak peak on the thoughts behind the collaboration.

previously revealed color-changing version, appear to be part of a series of one-off custom paint jobs Brittain is doing with her iconic design. And yes, that's one-off as in only one made, first come equals first served… She's revealing them on her Twitter account, so we strongly encourage you to follow her there as it seems people have been buying them without these wonderful pieces ever making it into Brittain's online shop.
HERE for just $60 each + shipping. Each 2" tall figure also comes with a highly durable/waterproof print of the original digital painting/rendering and it measures 16" x 7 1/2", all of which are signed and numbered by the artist. Along with the print and blister packed "Tiger" Stroll figure, you will also get tons of stickers and buttons. These are all packed up and ready to go... they just need someone to adopt them... will it be you?
Jay222, JFury, Scott Tolleson, valleyDweller & DrilOne's custom Androids for Dragatomi's SDCC 2012 series!
JFury! Every time I see one of his most recent customs, it's obvious how many leaps and bounds this customizer has taken in the last year… Just look at that sculpted lower lip and protruding teeth. Fantastic!
valleyDweller? Very nice wash of natural looking tones… the wood paneling effect he's created on the body is quite impressive. Which, to be fair, shouldn't be a surprise… valleyDweller does tend to impress.
Scott Tolleson. I love that grimy, weathered effect he's addded here to his sickly slick detail style. These are such utterly amazing pieces that I'm at a loss for words… and trust me, that's not easy to do!
DrilOne's second contribution to the series… Wow!
Dragatomi's blind boxed custom Android series will cost $80 per box and only 50 customs will be in the series. They will be available at SDCC Booth #4935, but day and time of release are still unknown.
myplasticheart will be throwing a dumpling-centric release party in NYC on July 6th, with both Shawnimals and Joe from Squibbles Ink on hand!
