Sharp eyed folk may have noticed a tiny Bob Dob preview pop up on Craola’s Instagram feed(above; image credit: craola). It’s true, Bob Dob’s parade of odd people on odder playground equipment continues to grow, and we’re looking forward to seeing his work ride on into Stranger Factory next month!
Below, we have another one of Bob’s upcoming sketches, featuring a grumpy punk lady and something fluffy and beaked(maybe a gryphon?). Come visit us at Stranger Factory in June for a look at Bob’s menagerie of curious spring riders and sullen children.
Bob Dob’s RIDE opens June 7th at Stranger Factory with a reception from 6-9pm.
Today, we get to see another work in progress shot from Tim Lee for his show “Done Gone” at Stranger Factory this June. Another wood cut is taking shape, and it also looks like Tim is fueling his creative mind with the most basic of food groups (wheat). This fuel is most definitely working, so keep it up, Tim.
The work still isn’t finished yet, but the earth tones and colors work perfectly with the wood grain so far. We are rapidly taking in the impressive work from Tim, because this show stands to be absolutely impressive, and we only have three more weeks to go!
Tim Lee’s “Done Gone” opens June 7th at Stranger Factory with a reception from 6-9pm. Tim will be present. In addition, Tim will be teaching a workshop with Valency Genis on Sunday.
The San Diego Comic Con is less than two months away, and it will be here faster than the Flash hyped up on 4 shots of espresso. The information will start pouring in fast and unexpected as we get closer to preview night, but we’ll keep you up to date on what some of our favorite artists will be up to at this grand ol’ convention.
Circus Posterus will be taking over the Cardboard Spaceship booth on Saturday, and you can bet your Superman tights they will have that booth filled with amazing goods! Up first, we know Chris Ryniak is hard at work in his lab creating perfect monsters, and so far we have seen a new herd of Crumbeaters being born. Still in the early stages, these Crumbeaters have a ways to go before they head out of Ohio to sunny California. We can tell you that each of these big eyed fellas will be different and there will be around 10 or so of them.
Hopefully you got tickets to the con! (If you did, see you there!)
SDCC happens in San Diego Thursday, July 18 through Sunday, July 21.
The Baby Tattoo Roadshow featuring Ragnar, Coop, Gris Grimly,and Marina Bychkova, landed at Stranger Factory last night, and it was one heck of a party!
The packed house got to see a multitude of amazing art books by the artists. We were also graced with an intense amount of original work that would blow your minds if they weren’t already blown away. Mixologist Michael Trujillo kept spirits high and spirits poured, and the night was simply awesome!
Thank you again to Baby Tattoo, the stunning artists, and all of you that came out last night!

Mixologist Michael Trujillo will also be on hand to make you some amazing drinks. Stop by, because between the art and booze, we can guarantee you an excellent start to your week.
We have seen some of Valency’s worms before, but it looks like an entire new brood is bred and ready for her show “Fauna” at Stranger Factory this June. These guys might not show you how to get around in Labyrinth, but they may be able to tell you the secret of life! This lively bunch may just be mounted soon if Lady Valency is consistent with her previous worm taxidermy efforts, but these are still a work in progress. We do love their full eyes and curious expression filled faces.
Valency Genis’ “Fauna” opens June 7th at Stranger Factory with a reception from 6-9pm.
Tim Lee’s work for “Done Gone” has definitely sparked interest around these parts. From the workbench, it appears as if Tim is utilizing and transforming undervalued and easily overlooked materials – bringing life into hand cut wood shapes! It all looks fun, striking, special and memorable.
This original piece looks to be one of the wood cuts all painted and ready to hit a tavern, if all those thumbs don’t spill the whiskey. The rusty coral shades contrast the piercing electric steel blue in the eyes and enhance the western theme we all love. We can’t wait to see more from Tim!
Tim Lee’s “Done Gone” opens June 7th at Stranger Factory with a reception from 6-9pm. Tim will be present.
Bob Dob is hard at work for his show RIDE at Stranger Factory this June! Bob sent us over some sketches as an appetizer before the main course. I don’t think that is a ride at Disney. I have never seen a ride with that demonic of a pony, but I really want to now.
Bob Dob presents “Ride“ at Stranger Factory June 7th – 30th, with an opening reception on Friday, June 7th from 6 – 9 PM.
Our favourite Valency is hard at work for her show in June, and I believe that we are being promised a bevy of tentacles and spots! As usual, you can probably expect gorgeous wall mounts of taxidermied specimens, but we’ve been seeing rumblings of larger pieces, so stay tuned.
Valency Genis’ “Fauna” opens June 7th at Stranger Factory with a reception from 6-9pm. Valency will be present, and will likely make you eat tiny doughnuts.
There is an ideal exhibition coming for those of the brain eating persuasion, and it is curated by the Circus’ own ethereally awesome Travis Louie! Opening at Last Rites Gallery on May 25th, Zombie stands to be a splendid group show that will will satisfy your living dead dreams or haunt them. Proving the awesomeness, our own Kathie Olivas and Brandt Peters have a collaborative piece in the show that like the images below, will leave you wide-eyed and salivating. That poor Skelve doesn’t stand a chance it seems! What an awesome piece by the dynamic duo!
