Monstermatic App – Design and 3D Print

Monstermatic3

We reported on the Monstermatic app back during its run on Kickstarter, and now the app that connects your creations with the world of 3D printing is available.

Monstermatic is a free app that inspires kids of all ages to engage in creative play. It provides a quick, fun and easy way to design monsters and unleash them into the world through 3D printing technology.

The app, now available via the Apple App Store, lets you interact with 10 animated monsters, each with a unique personality and swappable parts. The app allows you to take pictures using Augmented Reality Technology, draw on your monster, and share your creations through social media.

Then, you can send your creation to 3D printing and receive your figurine by mail a few days later. And it's only $25.95.

R.Crumb’s On the Crest of a Wave

R Crumb Crest of a Wave

The R.Crumb Site has announced a new etching edition - On the Crest of a Wave. The etching measures 14" x 13" with an Image size of approximately 9" x 7". Printed on archival Hahnemuhle paper, this edition of 50 pieces will sell for $350.00 each.

In 1990, Crumb drew this cartoon for the cover of Fantagraphic's The Complete Crumb Volume 6. The volume contained his work created on the crest of the wave, late 1969 and early 1970, just before the youth movement came crashing down. Crumb's talents as an editorial cartoonist are well displayed here, humorously summarizing his generation's youthful and naive expectation for a better world. Crumb recently told printer Alex Wood, "There were very few people who were aware the wave was going to crash when we were on the crest." And the cartoon depicts this: there are several terrified hippies who are aware of the impending confrontation with reality. Crumb reworked the illustration for this etching edition.
