whatsa matter

On Saturday May 15th, 2010, Le Merde will be opening their Whatsa Matter solo show at Super7 SF. Starting at 7PM PST, this show is sure to entertain. It's Le Merde's fourth solo show and - as one of our favorite artists - a must see.

Sock Kittens

JillCostumes.com appears to be a site for "Furries". If you're into that...we're not here to judge you. But the artist who creates those suits also has released a number of handmade Sock Kittens through their webstore. Currently, there are three designs available - each one will run you $20.

Qeeology 2.5 Student Edition

qeeology student

Toy2R USA has joined with Park Middle School of Lincoln, NE and invited sixty 8th Grade art students to submit their own custom 2.5" Qees to be displayed alongside the 70+ international professional artists customs being exhibited next weekend at the Qeeology 2.5 Exhibit. I'm interested in seeing how the art students' works look alongside some of the pro artists - since they'll probably be coming at these customs without much background of the designer toy scene.

Ninja of the Month: Dark Forest Ninja

DFN 1

Shawnimals is set to release the next (May) Ninja of the Month: Dark Forest Ninja. "The Dark Forest is filled with countless evil things, so Ninjas dare not venture into it. If they do, they may end up like the Dark Forest Ninja — a literal shadow of his former self, ensnared and consumed by the darkest of vines, thorns and branches, dripping of Dark Syrup."

Available on Wednesday May 5th, 2010 at 1PM CDT, this handmade 7" × 7" plush Ninja is limited to 100 pieces. Each plush includes "A horribly evil Dark Forest leaf", a character sticker and character button. And as with each Ninja of the Month, this Shawnimals will run you $30 each.

Tokidoki + Sephora

Sephora has announced a line of tokidoki beauty products - inspired by the work of Italian artist Simone Legno. Launching in May 2010, the line includes products for your eyes, lips, face, body, nails, among others. Unfortunately - as a guy - I really have no need for any of those things. But if you've ever walked past the tokidoki booth at SDCC, you'll notice a demographic trend that makes this the perfect pairing.
