Coarse Toys "Omen Fade" vinyl owl tribute piece announced!

Leaves called farewell to branches that no longer held them, and snow waved to the sky as it drifted away from the only life it ever knew. The sun said so long as it dipped its head behind the trees each day earlier than the last, and the moon moaned goodbye to itself, dissolving night by night until all that remained in the sky was a pale parenthesis, bracketing what no longer remained. But for the omens, this goodbye was not like the rest. --- Dedicated to Roman Shevchenko 1978 – 2014
We'd previously announced that the duo of Mark Landwehr and Sven Waschk, better known as Coarse Toys, were planning on releasing the forthcoming "omen fade" stylized owl interpretations by Coarse Toys, which — with its closed eyes — is meant as a loving tribute to Roman Shevchenko, a part of Coarse's collectors family for many years who unexpectedly passed late last year. This special edition for Roman, which stands roughly 7-inches tall, comes in 2 editions: Infinity [bright] and Requiem [dark]... and is meant to honor his love for Coarse. That being said, the proceeds of this release will be donated to his wife and family, and in order to help Roman's family as much as possible Coarse decided to not limit this release... and the preorder will remain open for 72 hours. A wonderful example of the art toy world giving back to its collectors, we truly are moved by Coarse's decision... and if you want to not only own some amazing collectibles, but know that this is going to a worthy cause, head on over HERE starting September 11th at 8:59am PST! They will retail for $88 a pop or $163 for the set!
