"Booty Babe Art(TM) is one man’s way of expressing his passion for fantasy art, toys, fashion design, and of course the wonderful variety of female beauty. In effect the project is a tribute to the women that make our day, taking the very definition of “Booty Babe” to new levels..." 

After ten years of working as a Toy Designer in Los Angeles, Spencer Davis combined all that he is passionate about a waged his own path. Since then he has realized dreams of self-employment, constructed an office / work space, and over the years has managed to produce and sell over 10,000 of his voluptuous creations.  Surviving challenges of recession, skyrocketing costs of production, and family life, check out his progress as he wraps up the final few days of his Kickstarter campaign, with hopes of producing a 20' shipping container filled with 5 NEW Booty Babe statues to choose from.
The Kickstarter has already reached it's goal which means that the items are guaranteed. In addition they have reached their first stretch goal and are only $700 shy of the next stretch goals. THese are beautifully designed and crafted sculptures and the rewards are amazing. They even include tiers where you can get your own likeness sculpted as a booty babe. Check out the Kickstarter and follow Booty Babe on Facebook.

Hindrance of a Whisper - Matt A* x RSIN collaboration

by
http://matta.storenvy.com/collections/23780-all-products/products/4848052-hindrance-of-a-whisperer 
Matt A* has teamed up with Rsin to produce a great painted original sculpture being named "Hindrance of a Whisper". Artist Matt A*, Matt Anderson, is a fantastic sculptor, however, he is colorblind. This leads to a lot of created pieces being a bit color muted. Enter Matt's friend and artist, Rsin. Rsin has become great with a color palette, having come a long way from sticker applications. 
http://matta.storenvy.com/collections/23780-all-products/products/4848052-hindrance-of-a-whisperer
Standing a good 12 inches, Matt A* created the original sculpture and Rsin created the base, while also painting the entire piece. Rsin was able to bring Matt's sculpture to life by using one side of the color spectrum. With a lot of yellow and orange in this piece, it would have been great to see a bit contrast with color from the blue spectrum. Overall, Hindrance of a Whisper is a great collab piece and hopefully just the start of some future Matt A* collabs.

Hindrance of a Whisper is available now on Matt A*'s online store, for $500 plus shipping. Be sure to follow both of these amazing artists on various social media.

1000Toys...... Ready?

by


Not much is known about this new company in the 1/6 world (founded in early 2012), they have a Facebook page and only today just launched their official website - 1000Toys

It seems the company has 2 people at the helm, Design is Tsutomu Nihei and Production is Yuta Tobari, some may recognise the name Tsutomu Nihei - creator of awesome manga Blame! Ive also spoken with Yuta a few times and seems his plans for 1000Toys are game changing.

Why game changing?? Well please take a look at these 1/6 bodies that are not far from production and we can see that we are looking into the future of 1/6 articulated bodies.

I bet you the major players will want to take a close look at the engineering thats gone into this, just to a see how they accomplished the amazing articulation. 





As I mentioned, the official site is up an running but the sale of these bodies don't have a date yet, retail price is $120.00USD - they are as yet not offering these to dealers so the only way to get hold of one is through the official website.

I for one is looking forward to getting hold of a few!

ALSO - 1000Toys will be at the Clash of the Titans show I previously wrote about, so check them out this weekend.

CLASH OF THE TITANS 1:6 SHOW

by
We are all familiar with the usual suspects of the 1/6 world... SideShow, Hot Toys. Enterbay, Medicom etc etc...

But lurking underneath all that.... there is a vast world of 1/6 figure customisation and production, creations that you may not know what the subject matter is but what these artist produce is somewhat amazing, I myself have a few pieces from these artist and its always a talking point when people visit my office.

OK, Clash of the Titans - what is it?



Well the good people at 1:AM Gallery are putting on a show that I think brings the best of these artist from around the world, into one gallery....

Joel Emslie, Winson Ma, Kenny Wong, RC Works, 1000toys, Psycho Customs, Zuno, Ligh BLACK, K13 Toys, Brac, HiKiKoMoRi Studio, makadi 3000, AX2 Studio. I'm sure you may of heard of a few of them.





Shame I live so so far aways as this is a great opportunity to see so many talented artists work in one place,  BUT if you live close then I suggest you head over to 1:AM gallery tomorrow for the opening night, you won't be disappointed.

First Amendment Gallery
1000 Howard Street
San Francisco
CA 94103

Lets hope James the curator can organise something like this for Europe in the future (James and I have spoke about a UK/EU show but only briefly)


Thanks for reading

New Works from Carson Catlin Lolligag, Labbit and More

by

Carson Catlin has been cutting it up- the vinyl that is, and shares with us new pieces for upcoming shows. Carson contributes "Reticu-lloli", pictured above and below,  for Toy Art Gallery's Vive La Lolligag. Reticu-Lloli has an antiqued finish, making the darker shadowed areas of many smaller cuts stand out. Reticu-Lloli will be available through Toy Art Gallery for $200, inquire info@toyartgallery.com for purchase.



Carson also contributes "RWB" - red, white & black Munny to Menace Inc. Studio's Childish Playthings. Red, white & black is a colour palette Carson shows interest in continuing to explore, and with each colour having unique emotional or thematic connotations, I'm interested to see where Carson takes it.


Carson also shares with us a commissioned piece recently completed. "Cadela Metal" was completed over the course of 8-9 months, and incorporates copper wire.
