SNEAK PEEK: NEMO Tiki Carving #6 for NEMO Godz Collection

by
If you've been following NEMO at all, you know he's been on a tiki kick. Starting with the killer tikis he created for our blind-boxed Custom Marshall Series, NEMO's been putting out consistently amazing tiki customs on vinyl, as well as creating original tiki carvings in the more traditional context.
Above is the latest original carving that NEMO's been working on for our shop: Tiki Carving #6. Carved from a block of balsa foam (below), this piece, upon completion, will be for sale in our NEMO section. Stay tuned for more info and pics of this piece!

Trains of Fame show in Paris: opening night video!

by
Okay, most of you don't know this but I've traveled all around Europe, been to Paris probably 5 or 6 times, among many other cities. But that was when I was traveling on my parent's dime, and we did touristy-type stuff like visiting les musees et le Tour Eiffel, Pompidou, Notre Dame, etc. It was very fun, Paris is a great city, and it broadened my horizons and all that.  blah blah blah
 
But now that I'm a big boy, and I am in contact with all these awesome graf/toy/artsy people over in Europe, here's what I REALLY wanna do next time I'm in Paris:

Valentine's Day gift: I Heart Guts Humongous Heart

by
Just arrived from I Heart Guts is this much-enlarged 11-inch tall version of their extremely popular Heart plush. I Heart Guts makes plushies that are actually in the shape, approximate size and sort-of general color scheme of each organ in your body (I think they take a few liberties with the colors to make them brighter). Their Heart plush consistently sells out in our shop and they've recently reworked that plush to enlarge it (no longer is it actual size; the new Humongous Heart is about twice as big as a healthy human heart!). 
The best part about this new version is it's actually LESS expensive (by $1) than the old version: $18 for an 11-inch plush heart. This version even has some heavier material in the bottom so it wants to stand up in the proper way. The Humongous Heart makes an excellent abnd affordable gift for your special someone on Valentine's Day. Don't you want to show them how humongous your love is for them? Buy yours here.
