Sophisticated Sasquatches


Everyone loves plushies...and at least I am a big fan of Bigfoot and Sasquatches.  Maybe it was the 452 times I watched Harry and the Hendersons as a kid.  Rosey from Sophisticated Sasquatches has sent news of the launch of her website.  She describes the line of 12" Sasquatch plushies (made of fur and felt) as follows:

The story behind them is that there's some sasquatches out there that
have a huge urge to go into urban areas and try to learn how to be
cultured. Unfortunately their love for eating garbage, loud music and
roughhousing often gets in the way of them trying to enjoy the finer
points in life.

Custom Cheshire Cat From NVC Crew


Dr. Bao and Spive - the NVC Crew - have sent us photos of their latest project.  It's a custom Cheshire Cat for an upcoming Cheshire Cat Show at Gallery 1988.  They started out with the concept..a cat who likes music...and just went crazy with that idea!  It has working speakers and you can plug an MP3 or CD player into the rear board.  The vinyl crate, records, background and garbage can were all done by NVC to accentuate the custom.


Plaseebo Artist John Kastner at Little Gallery


John Kastner, one of the artists/designers at Plaseebo Custom has a one-man exhibition of his Weeblax series watercolors and limited edition prints at the Little Gallery in Rochester, New York thru October 25th.

John’s work is from his ongoing series Weeblax-uzzl, which he refers to as "Very Kroonic images for the visually intelligent" and while John’s work appears light and colorful on the surface, the undertow of the concept never fails to pull the viewer into the depths of John’s subconscious, always oddly unsettling.
