Sideshow Collectibles has plans for one crazy month of July. They'll be releasing new products every day throughout the month. And if you're a Star Wars fan, you'll want to keep your eyes open. Momaw Nadon - Hammerhead has been released for pre-order in a regular and Sideshow Exclusive (including Ithorian staff) versions. The Exclusive version is available for $124.99, while the regular runs. (Personally, I'd fork over the extra five bucks)

Ed Emberley's wonderfully simple books taught a generation of children to draw using the simplest of ingredients. Squiggles, triangles, dots, circles and the other building blocks of drawing came together in clear, step-by-step recipes.
Opening on July 17th 2010 at Scion’s Installation L.A. Gallery, “Ed Emberley & Friends” will demonstrate the breadth of influence that Emberley’s encouraging books have had on a generation of artists. Each artist will create a six-foot-by-six-foot wood panel that is a mash-up of their own style and that of Ed Emberley’s instructional drawing books.
The opening reception takes place on Saturday, July 17th, from 7PM until 10PM at the Scion Installation Space, 3521 Helms Ave. (at National), Culver City, CA 90232. It will run until August 7th.

Jesse LeDoux will have a solo show, entitled "Perfect Forecast", opening on July 9th 2010 from 6PM until 9PM at Schmancy Toys.
The artist says:
"Since it's a summer show in Seattle, it's only fitting for my work to focus on the narrow window of summer each year in the Pacific Northwest. My pieces are abstracted diagrams of the joys and frustrations we experience as the clouds part and the floating diving board platforms sprout out of Lake Washington."
