Frederick J. Carrotson the Fourth, better known to
friends and family as Fred the One-Eyed Carrot, is undeniably the world's most
interesting and famous carrot. Fred has traveled the world and done some amazing
things so far in his life but now Fred is ready to take the next step and be
immortalized....in PLUSH!!!

Three handmade and individually numbered plush Freds were produced as a collaboration between Lina and El Maz.  Each carrot stands 13" tall and were sewn by Lina, inspired by the original design from El Maz. They feature embroidered eyes, mouths, and stitching on the hat, as well as a wool fiber mustache.

Included with each Fred plush is a handmade, handwritten, hand-drawn, and individually painted/splattered tag from El Maz.  Each Fred also comes with an “I FEAR NO RABBIT!” bracelet. The price for each plush Fred is
$156
.  If you are interested in
owning a Fred, email Katie at Gallery 1988 SF.

Alllogolight

I'm sure that you've once hear that all matter in the world is comprised of 4 elements : Water, Air, Earth and Fire.   Artoyz Originals has announced their Elements Prologue Set.  The characters have been
created by Easy Hey, with modeling by Gregos.   The figures are each about 3" in height and will be produced in a run of 500 sets.  Look for them to drop on June 26th.

We Are Sheeple

Work2

Robin Matthews is putting his fine arts degree to work by producing plushies known as Sheeple.  While the creations are interesting, the stop-motion animation below is more entertaining.

Timmy The Toxic Slimeball

Slime

Timmy the Toxic Slimeball is
a radioactive mutant hero.  He targets dirty cops and defends hard
working criminals.  His main weapon is acid vomit and green slime that
shoots out of his stump arm.

The character was designed and submitted by Geoff to PatchTogether.com and they are almost ready to release three colorways and a DIY.  The 4" tall vinyl figure will be limited to a run of 300 of each color.  It will be released in August.

Skullboy Custom Be@rbrick

Skullbrick2

Some of Jack Hankins' (Horrorwood) friends presented him with a custom Be@rbrick made to look like his Skullboy character.  While I like the custom, I'd be interested in seeing what the character would look like with an original sculpt.  It's promising...
