You thought we wouldn’t notice…

jon schiller sins casshern

Reader Sir Donuts came across something rather interesting. After seeing artwork for Jon Schiller's upcoming SINS! line, he thought something looked familiar. Well, if you check out his "Jon Schiller Likes To Trace" post, you can see some rather striking similarities between Jon's "original" SINS! line and some other anime characters.

I know of a number of artists who read the site here at Plastic and Plush and I would really be interested in their feedback. Do you think this is a case of "unintentional similarities" or "flat-out plagiarism"? Has your artwork ever been copied and passed off as someone else's original?

Matt Walker’s Cosmic Squadron

dpd cosmic

One of the pleasant Comic-Con surprises was the introduction of Matt Walker's (Dead Presidents Designs) new line of rotocast vinyl figures. The Cosmic Squadron currently features four designs: Atom, Rayon, No-Mad and HazmaT.

The line is really well-made, feel great in your hands and give off a big retro feel to them. And the best part? They're available for $65.00 each. (Although they're currently sold out, more should be coming soon)

Sad News from I Want Your Skull

iwys

This was very sad to read. Unfortunately, a little over two weeks ago, Ryan August of I Want Your Skull was involved in a fatal car accident that cost him his life. Please keep his family in your thoughts. You can contribute your memories/stories/thoughts to a Facebook page in his memory.

On Saturday, July 11th… my husband, Ryan August, and our son Declan were in a car accident on their way home from Atlanta. They were driving through a storm when Ryan’s car left the road and struck a tree. Declan, secured in his car seat, made it through with minor cuts and bruises. Ryan died on impact.

Ryan was a wonderful husband and the most devoted father I have ever seen. I cannot not begin to imagine our lives without him….

I know that he has many friends out there and I wanted to let everyone know what happened. Right now there is so much to deal with that I am struggling to keep it all moving…. but when I can I will set to honoring his commitments involving I Want Your Skull and its related blog. Right now I am focused on our son and trying to understand the unfathomable.
