Holy crud @genevieve-ft​ and I made a kickstarter!

These beauties exist. In REAL LIFE! You can hold them in your hands and everything. They are 6″ tall cast figures, hand sculpted and painted! (My punk girl’s missing her tats and boob tape, she’s only going to get MORE AWESOME)

We could not be more excited, but we really really need your help if we’re going to make them! Please go check out the KickStarter page, check out our sweet animated KickStarter video and if you can, back for just $1. And then hit come here and hit reblog! A signal boost might just be the thing that helps bring these ladies to life!

Please check out and back the project at cutiecorps.com/kickstarter!

#CutieCorpsASSEMBLE!

Hi, everyone! I am so excited to launch my next plush.. the Shiba Inu! I have such a love for the Japanese breeds (I own a Kai Ken myself!) and wanted to bring a Shiba Inu plush into the hands of dog lovers! I really need your help to make this project happen so if you want to go ahead and give the Kickstarter a read, I would greatly appreciate it! You get the chance to own some cool Kickstarter exclusive awards for helping me out as well!

If you can share this around, or even pledge, I will be extremely grateful for support! :)

“Hi… Eh. Meh!” Such is the traditional greeting of the Crabapple family. 

I’m keeping this project super streamlined–the goal amount is for the plush, digital wallpaper downloads and an after-campaign postcard. If we get further than that, I’ve got all sorts of cute goodies lined up for ya! 

Join the crabby revolution!

THIS IS NOT A TOY exhibition 
Design Exchange, Toronto 
FEBRUARY 7 - MAY 19 

This Is Not A Toy, curated by John Wee Tom and DX Associate Curator Sara Nickelson with Guest Curator Pharrell Williams, is the world’s first exhibition featuring a collection of contemporary sculptures, figurines and artworks created by artists including Takashi Murakami, KAWS, FriendsWithYou, Coarse, Huck Gee, and Frank Kozik. 

The exhibition explores the conceptual toy – a form made solely as an expression of an aesthetic, concept or idea – as an art and design object as well as a contemporary cultural signifier. On display until May 19, visitors dive headfirst into the realm of designer toys as the Exhibition Hall is transformed into a vibrant and whimsical environment, filled with forms ranging from tiny trinkets to enormous free-standing pieces.

Junko Mizuno’s Stunning Kuro Megami For Kidrobot Black

Kidrobot Black, the vinyl company’s high-end designer collection, has releases few and far between. There hasn’t been one I’ve been interested in since Lilitu, but they’ve finally caught my eye again with this collaboration with Junko Mizuno! Her ‘Kuro Megami’ figure is absolutely gorgeous, with way more detail than you usually see on a vinyl piece and some very intricate sculpting.

New Scott Wilkowski Customs at SDCC

Scott Wilkowski is continuing his Skin Deep style with several more customs. They’ll be available at SDCC but you’ll have to cough up a few of your own bones for these limited toys. There will be six different sets, including David Horvath’s Flatwoods Monster and Frank Kozik’s Labbit. Each set is limited to 25 per color. The Flatwoods Monster is the lowest price of the bunch at $125. That’s a lot, but damn do I want that.

From murals to designer toys, Tristan Eaton emerged from the streets and into well known force in the art world. We featured his TrustoCorp project in Hi-Fructose Vol. 22, but he’s since put that venture aside to focus purely on his solo career. His striking, almost dream-like figurative style weaves together contrasting elements of pop, cartoons, and typography. One look at Eaton’s work and you can immediately see a collage of influences, and he has always sought to represent this visual language that he loves in a single piece. Eaton really dug deep for his next solo exhibition at Subliminal Projects on his home turf of Los Angeles.

See more on Hi-Fructose.
