Fashematics Comic Book, Featuring Karl Lagerfeld

The creator of the comic x fashion zine “Fashematics” took inspiration from Karl Lagerfeld for the most recent issue. The issue includes looks from spring 2010- illustrationing and reinterpreting the stars of the catwalk as part of either a horde of zombies or an army of robots, hell-bent on taking planet Earth for themselves.

The book can be purchased here for $20 plus international shipping.

My Love for Motorcycles.

Growing up in a household full of grease, rust, tools & builders I learned at a very young age to have respect for nice things and especially nice motorcycles. Below is a small collection of bikes I dream of….

My Little Pony “Cloverpony” by Sara Richard

I saw this new piece today from sculptor Sara Richard and couldn’t believe my eyes. She took the “My Little Pony” cute and cuddly body and modeled it into an evil creature! The details on the figure is incredible from the teeth to the extending legs- no wonder why Hasbro hired her!

Good work Sara, and I want more sushi toys soon!!!

Bic Buddy Release Party- Toy Tokyo

This past weekend I took the red eye from LA to JFK and ended up sitting next to toy designer and friend Marka27. I had first met Victor “Marka27” a couple years back at LAB, where we carried his Minigods series and also, had him featured in one of our art opening. He had flown out to LA for the release party of the Bic Buddys which, he designed the platform for. The new toy series for Bic Plastics launched at the beginning of August hit LA and now will be visiting 2 more major cities to mark the launch of its new mini-series.

So this week at Toy Tokyo from 6-9pm,  Cope2, Indie84, Kano, Marka27 and Sket will be signing. Last shop of the tour is in Chicago at the one and only Rotofugi on August 22nd where Jesse Hernandez and Marka27 be signing and hanging out with fans.

Congrats on the series guys- it looks great! And, thanks Marka for the toy, it will be added to my collection!
