The test pulls are in from Japan, and this little lady is outstanding! Designed by Kathie and sculpted by Yohei of Mirock Toy, Clementine is an ready for mischief around the world in all her pigtail glory. Clementine is a first in our sofubi line because she is articulated at the arms, head, and waist, but ALSO comes with a removable rabbit puppet.
Kathie is busy finalizing the final color versions, but we think this lady will be showing up very soon.
VIXEN is Brandt Peters’ contemporary re-interpretation of the classic pin-up art. Super heroes, alien school girls, crime bosses, and girl gangs: these characters embody a new female attitude.Peters’ larger than life femme fatales bravely strut the line between light and dark, and transcend any antiquated notions behind the interpretation of the female form.
The collection of new work was created as life-scale, with most pieces hovering between five and six feet tall.

Daniel Talone presents his latest creations at Origines where you meet, discover and visit a place out of time.
Brought to you by Source-a-id.com in collaboration with the Maison Fontaine Paris for the 2015 edition of Déco Off
The Maison Fontaine, is considered a private museum. Not normally open to the public and houses a couple pieces the the french refer to in translation as ‘national heirlooms’ to treasures while the society has existed for more then 3 centuries. Déco Off is a yearly event where some of the old time establishment fabric houses open their showrooms to the public, and introduce new lines and often collaborations with artists. This expo will be showing several artists including people who work with stone or wood… predominately furniture based. Daniel is the only artist present actually exposing ‘sculptures’ During the course of the weekend there will be several ‘talks’ given by different people describing their medium/product, and some talking about color… hence conversations.
This amazing event will take place the 22 – 26 January from 11:30 – 6:30. Daniel will be present after 5 on week days and the whole day on Saturday and Sunday. If you are in the Paris area, please stop by and say hello to one of our favorite artists and discover this mythical place, as well as some very talented creators presenting their ” savoir faire français.”

Stranger Factory is excited to announce “Peepshow”, a new group exhibit of contemporary pop artists reimagining the concept of pin-up art. The classic pin-up was a lowbrow form of art, originally intended as cheap titillation for the masses and commonly used as advertising. Curator Brandt Peters invited his peers to revisit the pin-up not as cheap commerce, but instead to use the form as a showcase for contemporary style, as well as more modern attitudes towards women and the female form.
Participating artists in the show include Ryan Heshka, Sas Christian, Colin Christian, Jim Mahfood, Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Aunia Kahn, Brian Ewing, Tokyo Jesus and Brandt Peters.
The exhibit runs Feburary 6th through March 1st, with an opening reception on Friday, February 6th from 6 – 9 PM. Some artists will be in attendance.
