Buy a Pack of Renone's Fucked Up Kids Series 4 Trading Cards and Get a Chance to Win a OOAK Gold Fat Jason

by
WORST GIVEAWAY EVER.

Renone has a limited number of his Fucked Up Kids (FUK) Series 4 trading card packs left in stock. To spice things up a little as they sell, he has set up a drawing:

ALL buyers of FUK Series 4 packs have their name entered into a drawing to win one of his AWESOME Fat Jason figures which I personally absolutely love. (I think Comic Book Guy is one of my favorite Simpsons characters!)

Once the packs sell out, Renone will pick a winner. Winner will receive a ONE OF A KIND Gold Fat Jason. No, it's not real gold, you dipshit. It's painted gold. But there's only one.


Dafuq are these FUK cards? Glad you asked:

This is a twisted concept from Renone, our favorite mad sticker printer and underground artist. This is the 4th trading card series in the Fucked Up Kids series, featuring 20 fucked-up characters and artwork from the sick minds of:

SDCC 2015 - Day 1 Coverage

Admittedly there is a ton of stuff at SDCC every year. So, there will be a ton of coverage from many sources. Here is a photo dump of my day walking around SDCC 2015, Day 1.

SDCC 2015 Preview Night Coverage

by
Here are a few pics taken at SDCC 2015 Preview Night. Every year, SDCC seems to be growing in size and attendance, with this year being no exception. With preview night already showing booths having poor line management, the overall mood was kind of mellow. It was definitely not too crowded in most of the exhibit floor, with big money booths always having a decent sized crowd and lines. Check out the small photo dump of pics. The crap will be filtered out later.

Jon-Paul Kaiser Customs at SDCC 2015 Munky King Booth

by
This year, Munky King has asked a number of artists to customize Munky King produced pieces, to be on display and for sale at SDCC 2015. Jon-Paul Kaiser customized a number of pieces that will be a part of the display. Here is the line-up that Jon-Paul Kaiser was able to complete for Munky King:
  • Screaming for the Sunrise - "This Is My Sunrise"
  • Koibito - "The Forgotten River"
  • Pink Elephants - "Civil Disobedience"
  • Uprisings - "Great Wave"
Each one of these pieces features Jon-Paul's common black and white paint scheme, while also adding some color, when necessary, to make the pieces pop even more. For those attending SDCC 2015, these pieces, as well as all the other artist customs, will be on display and for sale during the convention. Be sure to follow Munky King on social media because if by chance any of the pieces don't sell out, they may be put up for sale after the con is over. All the provided photos of completed pieces were taken by the excellent photographer, Justin Allfree. Hopefully, Jon-Paul Kaiser will be able to make it over to the US for a future convention (like DCON).

Pacific & Northwest at Daniel Rolnik Gallery - Bwana Spoon and Tripper Dungan

by

"Pacific & Northwest" is an art show showcasing the happy, fun, and colorful paintings of Bwana Spoons and Tripper Dungan. 

Bwana's pieces will primarily be focused around dinosaurs (having been inspired by his trip across the country stopping at dinosaur track museums - the strange American road-stop attractions frequently found in the middle of nowhere). 

Tripper's work will be focused on the culture of the West Coast - from big trees to hot dogs. All done on scavenged pieces of wood and made with as eco-friendly a process as possible. 

Both artists are creating hand-shaped and painted skateboards as well as a variety of installation items that will make you freak out and get super stoked. 3D glasses will be provided to all guests so they can experience the art and gallery in a vibrant new way.

About the artists

Bwana Spoon is a painter, toy maker, and half-jack of other trades. He loves trees, moss, and monsters. He currently resides in Portland, OR, where he has recently begun a collaboration with Kid Robot toys and is reopening the world famous Grass Hut inside of a comic shop.

Tripper Dungan was born in Santa Barbara, California. At the early age of 4 he got in trouble for coloring in his brothers He-Man coloring book. He hasn’t stopped making art since.​ He currently resides in Portland, OR where he recently completed a tiny house art installation named Lookie House - successfully funded via a kickstarter campaign.

"Pacific & Northwest" opens on July 18th at the world's only Daniel Rolnik Gallery
1431 Ocean Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90401

Free parking is available in the public lots on 2nd street (cross-street of Santa Monica Blvd) - located only a few blocks from the gallery.

Coralites: Snakelock edition x Taylored Curiosities

by

Coralites are incorrectly named due to the biologist who discovered this species back in the 1800's.  He wrongly identified these teeny creatures as being coral dwellers.  We now know them to in fact live symbiotic lives with anemones.  They have even evolved matching frongs to completely camouflage themselves.  A very clever hiding species (which would explain why none of you divers have seen one before).

This piece has been hand painted to look like a Snakelock anemone and the two Corlaites match.  They have a little pod with some shimmery eggs inside.  All safely nestled inside the anemone; out of the way of sea predators.

Coralite sets are cast from my original sculpt and hand painted.  Each piece is unique and will carry slight differences due to the handmade nature.  



This set includes:

An anemone measureing 2" tall and 2.5" wide.
Two Coralites stand at just under 1" tall.
And a little nest with eggs.

All items are hand sculpted, cast and painted with lots of accents to give them an organic feel.  Sets are signed and dated.


These will be available on the Taylored Curiosities online store tonight at 5pm GMT.
