Aaron “Retroband” Moreno – I can’t stop the Monster I created

New York City's transition into autumn is accompanied by prolonged darkness at nighttime and a crispness in the air. But this year, the season's arrival will also be heralded by the descent upon Brooklyn of "I can't stop the Monster I created," the first solo gallery exhibition of artist Aaron "Retroband" Moreno.

Known for projecting '70s and '80s horror film-fueled fantasies onto his vinyl-cast MEATS sculpture, Moreno's showcase will focus on renditions of this disquieting form. Manifesting through an impressive array of hand-painted/modified MEATS pieces, as well as an unprecedented selection of 'raw' unpainted versions, "I can't stop the Monster I created" will introduce the award-winning artist's newest interpretation of his monstrous character, one inspired by Japan's Ma-Ba Zombie toy line.

Also debuting at the exhibition is a 154-page retrospective titled "MEATS by Retroband," an art book from CoART Publications. Comprised mainly of specially-commissioned photographs by Bryan Sargent, this full-color monograph details every hand-painted/modified MEATS rendition by Moreno from the form's 2015 introduction until mid-2018.

With all available works sold on a first-come, first-served basis (initial limit of one piece and one book per person), Moreno's "I can't stop the Monster I created" is a free-to-the-pubic exhibition hosted at the Bottleneck Gallery contemporary art space — 60 Broadway in Brooklyn, NY — on Saturday, September 21st 2019 from 6PM to 9PM.

Dr. Apples – Mr. Know-It-All

The artist named Apples returns with a new Custom based on a 4-inch tall Munny. Based on the Dr. Apples franchise, this one is named Dr. Apples: Mr. Know-It-All. The piece is set to be released today and will run $250.00. Further details are listed below...

Oh don’t feel bad for him, he deserved it. Smarty pants played with a few potions and spells, made a boo-boo and jacked up his eye. Sigh, this is my leader. We are currently on the search to find his mother. She was kidnapped by fairies when he was a teen. Come with us on this journey of wonder and maybe some successes.

This is a custom, one-of-one 7” Munny of Dr. Apples. The base is Munny. His face and hands are made from polymer clay. His teeth are made from resin and he has a blue light in the back for his eye to glow. This vinyl toy is based from a scene from the Dr. Apples Novella, Dr. Apples: The Origin, The Eye & The Journey. Some versions of the novella have illustrations made exactly from this one-of-one munny.

The Balance resin debuts at DragonCon in Atlanta (August 29 - September 2) at Cassie’s booth #B22 in Artist Alley 4th floor of AmericasMart, Building 2. For those who can't make DragonCon, Junk Fed (via their above link) will simultaneously open online pre-orders on Thursday, August 29th 2019 at 10PM ET. This resin will be a limited edition of 40 pieces and will run $75.00 each.

Mr Blank Toys – I’ll Be Bach

Mr Blank Toys has released the third figure in his Bach Series - I'll Be Bach 3 (Liquid Metal Colorway). Limited to a run of 5 pieces, this 4-inch tall hand crafted resin figure comes carded. The mashup of Johann Sebastian Bach and the T-800 (from Terminator 2), this Model T-1750 can be purchased for $65.00 plus shipping.

“A killing machine from the future, Model T-1750. Sent tot he distant past by future Tannens to pose as German composer and musician Johann Sebastian Bach. It’s mission: To destroy the Brown family bloodline once and for all! After a great battle it ends up frozen in Carbonite and lost in some galaxy far far away. But now it’s Bach, in the future (which is really the past for us), possibly even in some alternate reality, and it’s impersonating the Doc Brown of 2015… Oh no!”

Kickstarter: Self conscious – A confidence boosting plush

Taylored Curiosities is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to produce her Self-conscious character as a scented plush therapy doll. Each one will be made from super soft fabric and stuffed with squishy stuffing and natural ginger (ginger is known to boost confidence and mood). These dolls are aromatherapy dolls just like the Worry ones you know and love. 

There are various funding levels, with the plush available at the £20.00 (about $24) level. This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Wednesday September 4th 2019 at 4:13PM ET

As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution.

Taylored Curiosities – Butterpillars

Taylored Curiosities has released several new Butterpillars into the world. 

Butterpillars are the result of my experimentation using Butterfly DNA. On attempting to give them human intelligence I somehow stopped the development to the 'fly' stage of their life. They do become beautifully patterned but never grow big enough wings, and therefore never become Butterflies, they instead stay as Butterpillars. After an accident in the lab, hundreds escaped and I now spend most of my time trying to locate them and find them good homes.

Limited to an edition of 5 handmade pieces, these little critters have been hand-cast from an original sculpt and each one is hand painted. They measure just under 1-inch tall and 1.5 inches wide. You can pick them up now for£20.00 (about $25.00).
