Crittersaurus Print

Crittersaurus

Scott Wetterschneider has released a new 12" x 12" art print on 16" x 16" archival matte paper. Named Crittersaurus, you can read more about the character below. You can pick one up via the above link for $40.00.

Crittersaurus finds himself in a strange town, with no friends. Gently, he meanders from street to street, taking in the new sights and sounds, hopeful that, at last, he's found a place to call home. Scott Wetterschneider's giant, strange beasts are not your run-of-the-mill kaiju. They forgo violence, are often ill-at-ease, and do their best to keep a low profile. Accidents do happen, so be cautious.

Hoodsbee: The Hoodie That Becomes A Friend

Hoodsbee is the "first plush toy that transforms into a hoodie jacket for kids". The folks from HLL Design have taken to Kickstarter in order to raise enough funds to get the interchangeable hoodie - Hoodsbee - into production. Currently, there are nine different character hoodies in the Hoodsbee line. Since they're only showing boys and girls sizes...I'm assuming large man size is not one of the purchasing options.

Pledge levels beginning at $30.00 will receive your choice of hoodie. The project will only be funded if at least $25,000 is pledged by Wednesday August 27th 2014 at 1:12 PM EDT.
