Penny Taylor (Taylored Curiosities) will have her first solo show opening that will take place on the October 27th 2017 from 3PM to 9PM at Onca Gallery in Brighton. Subconscious Dwellings will feature seven handmade and furnished houses on display and available for purchase. Each house is £200 (about $265).
Subconscious Dwellings is my personal exploration of our inner minds. We are all unique and therefore it makes sense that our subconscious minds are also unique. Maybe yours is a bit of a circus and you feel that you have to constantly perform to those around you so they don't see how low you really are. Maybe yours is a safe, sleepy cocoon of a dwelling that you can send yourself into and switch off for a while to cope with everything happening around you. Each 'dwelling' is set up to be a functional, art dollhouse, whilst also being a unique piece of handmade art.

Pop Prolific has a new series of hand-painted 5.5-inch tall resin figures in the works - Masters of Martial Arts. Inspired by the body shape and construction of the Masters of the Universe figures and the gnarly sculpting style of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures, this set of (G.I. Joe) Storm Shadow inspired characters, the Young Master and the Shadow Master, are sculpted in a silhouette that echoes the stance of the vintage Masters of The Universe figures. To accompany them on their trip to Eternia is Don-At-Arms, an obvious fusion of two of the brightest minds in the universe.
The edition size on each figure is open for the moment. There's currently an open pre-order on POPprolific.bigcartel.com that ends on Sunday October 15th 2017. Justin will make enough figures to fulfill the pre-orders plus a few extra and then move onto the next wave of characters. Don't miss out.

I'm sort of enthralled with the tale and mythos of Krampus. The anti-Santa has gained popularity the last several years, especially in the horror movie genre. But we also have collectibles. And thanks to Dellamorteco, who I just happened to find on Etsy, coffee drinkers can sip their favorite java straight from the cranium of the hoofed-foot goat demon. Sculpted of food grade resin, there's a removable 16 oz. stainless steel liner cup inside. You can pick up for own (measures 5.5-inches in height) for $45.00.
