We’ve covered the handmade creations of artist Charles Stephan for some time now. You might remember his popular pig character – Alice Cherry Blossom. Well, a little over a year ago, Stephen started Charles’ Creature Cabinet to publicize and sell some of his other ball jointed resin creations.

The folks at Rotobox Vinyl Anatomica have revealed their Real Robot Series 2 - Transformers' Constructicons. This custom is a 6 figure set. Each Constructicon can be converted from robot to construction truck and then combined into Devastator (around 20" in height). Included are an additional Dog Qee head - modified for Devastator's head - and a customized body frame.
After doing our real robot series 1 - Valkyrie VF1-S from the Macross anime, we were seriously thinking what we would do next to top that one. We decided to do transformers but would want to customize something really special since we would also be celebrating our 1st year anniversary here at rotobox. We thought "hey, why not do something that can transform and at the same time can also combine". And so we chose to customize decepticon's first combining robot Constructicons or also known as Devastator. It brings back a lot of memories because when we were still kids watching transformers, the first time devastator appeared really blew us away bec he's such an awesome, destructive huge robot and we were literally thinking "how on earth would the autobots defeat such a massive thing?", but of course, autobots always wins in the end.

The Bible Illuminated: R. Crumb's Book of Genesis will be on display at UCLA's Hammer gallery beginning October 24th.
Seminal comic artist R. Crumb has spent the last five years on this
literal adaptation of the first book of the Old Testament, The Book of
Genesis, bringing his signature zaftig women, mischievous animals and
geeky men to the holiest of books. This highly-anticipated exhibition
will be comprised of 207 individual black-and-white drawings
incorporating every word from all fifty chapters, with no alterations,
as well as an introduction and a map of the world of Abraham. A book
featuring the complete set of drawings, with a handwritten introduction
by the artist, will be published by W.W. Norton in late October 2009.
Crumb will also be participating in An Evening With R. Crumb at 8PM on Thursday October 29th at Royce Hall on the UCLA campus. I pre-ordered the Book of Genesis book several months back after the New Yorker reprinted several pages of it. I'm now reading through it, and if you're a fan of his artwork...you won't be disappointed.
