10013317_10151985449561463_257260516_nNow we can really see what Andrew is up to for his show Factory Strangers coming to Stranger Factory this April.  This looks to be a portion of what stands to be an epic piece by Mr. Bell. An “extraction station” of sorts, and what is being extracted? What exactly is the fluid in this small vials, and who is doing this? Andrew is really putting the thought, time, and skill into this show. One thing we can can count on, this show is going to be groundbreaking.

not-a-spice-girlTime to add a bit of spice to your life with Chris Ryniak’s Stinky Ginger- Golden Spicy colorway.

This grumpy little lady has even more sass now in this new glittery spicy colorway that will set your taste buds on fire. Another delicious treat from the Tomenosuke x Circus Posterus Sofubi line, it is limited to only 60 signed and numbered servings. She is available now in the Circus Posterus store here!


image1We asked Martin Ontiveros if we could have a gander into that bright neon color mind of his for his show coming up at Stranger Factory, and he literally cracked open his sketchbook for us.

It really is an amazing sight when an artist lets you look into their personal sketchbook. You get to see the thought process of ideas and characters, interesting doodles, mistakes, masterpieces, edits, and many times, creations you might never see anywhere else. It is a small appetizer into their delicious brain. On that note, let us see what Martin has cooking for his upcoming show at Stranger Factory.

Creatures developing everywhere on the page!image3 image4Oh, now we see where he is starting, and can’t wait to see where he goes from here. Bring on that Ontiveros color!!!!

Looks like Andrew Bell has called in the third shift for his Factory Strangers show at Stranger Factory.
8016_10151976792656463_187648159_nAnother work in progress image from Andrew that seems to truly show one of those magnificent creatures in his head. At first glance, we see what looks like a disgruntled tripod factory worker, but being an early stage of development, and Andrew being the mastermind he is, this little fella can go in a billion directions. Regardless, this sculpt has our attention!

On that note, here is another sample from the show. Not much to go on except Andrew’s description from Facebook “gates and spouts and vents and sprues and stuff.” Bring it on, Mr. Bell!

The Creature and Batty even look more spectacular in this form, and the careful modelling brings out all the delightful details of Brandt’s original designs. This is such a wonderful team up; thank you, Dennis!

20140312_162649_resizedIt seems only fitting that  we take you to the end of a rainbow on St. Patrick’s Day. The pot of gold you find there, is the rainbow maker himself, Bwana Spoons!

The man, the myth, the skateboard loving artist we have come to know has graciously allowed us access into his color filled studio, and you know how much we love seeing where the artists work!
So, while you wait to consume green beer, see where all that rainbow magic happens.
