NEW POST: Check out the recent mural that DUST completed for his most recent solo show titled “Organic” at Gallery Hugo45 this past weekend… WOW, that thing is insane, and I just love how it wraps around the walls! I really am impressed with these organic alien like creatures that DUST continues to paint… and this one in particular looks like a bird who is falling from the skies as his feathers were stripped from his body… intense! The title of this piece is “Koerperwesen”… a nutty name for a nutty creation… so cool! http://dlvr.it/3Px1N4

NEW POST: Ahhhhh, you feel that?!?! That’s the cool summer breeze blowing through the air and the folks over at La Muerta have prepared a trio of shirts… and yes, you have the option to have these in wither t-shirt or sleeveless tank tops… RAD! So you will be the talk of the town, or shall I say backyard BBQ with these new threads! So without further ado, let’s get down to business shall we?
First up is the the all new “Hawsepiper” by Olde Soul! “_Unlicensed you were, climbed up that rank, a merchant and a seaman. One hell of a leader. Still died and now time is better spent blowing skulls out of that pipe like a wizard. You sir are of the tall order to us barrio dwellers and even though you can only ship out occasionally on those shiny pools of blood ‘round these campgrounds, you still command that tremendous nautical authority._” These can be snatched up HERE for $26 a pop.
Next is the beautiful geometric design “Effloresce” by A Dot A Line! “_How many times have we told you to stay de-hydrated hermano(a)? It’s not out of us being the elderly and jaded bunch. It’s for you to to burst forth into a beautiful looking crystal-less skull. A bone structure to stop those new dead ladies/gentlemen hard on their tracks. Chemical change suits the good looking ones around the 6ft under folks. Bloom on, bloom on._” Go get one HERE for $26!
Lastly is the amazing work of Butch the Butcher with his bitchen new “Woodwork” design! “_You thought brewing 13% alc. vol. beer was our side business. A sure coin racking thing of sorts. It’s not bad per say, but that’s a hobby of ours holmes. What is the one thing everybody does no matter what? Indeed, very much so. The casket customisation thrives far and beyond that of the liver killing one. We are into some producing some rather exquisite wooden carvings._” This can be yours HERE for $26 as well! So no excusese for not having anything to wear this summer,@_LaMuerta_ has you(r BODY) covered! http://dlvr.it/3PwF02

NEW POST: Recently the folks over at Artopalo and KorNsoul, both designer toy brands in Korea, contacted us to drop a little info about a new toy product line called “SEOULMONZ”! They previously released a few toys back in 2012 called “Draco6” and “Gung” and now, this new blind box series features monster toys representing the myth and legends of Seoul City. “SEOULMONZ” is made up of 8 monsters, each of which have their own stores, and likeability about them, and all figures include an extra key-chain accessory! These 4.7” tall figures stand apart from other toys though, because they are wooden pieces that are colorfully printed… and look really fun! It seems as though they are only $9 a pop and are currently finding international retailers, so look for them in the near future!

NEW POST: Vince from VTSS recently produced an awesome piece of art for Taiwan based graffiti artist named BOUNCE… and above you can see the paint prototype entitled “Bounce Boy”! Produced by VTSS, the sculpture which was displayed at Young Art Taipei (YAT) last weekend in Taiwan, had an awesome reception! Blending a cartoony style with urban flare, Bounce Boy is a 12” tall resin piece whos eyes GID (Glow in Dark), and once produced will come with a laser etched wood box and wood COA(Certificate of Authenticity). It really is a unique looking sculpture… my only question is, why no arms? I look back at BOUNCE’s previous work, and it appears that all his figures have arms… I wonder if this is a new direction? There is no word yet on a price, or a release date, but to follow along with the production, be sure to visit the VTSS Facebook page HERE. http://dlvr.it/3PdtSq

NEW POST: David Kraig is at it again… sculpting, and customizing away on a poor defenseless DIY Mini-Munny! Are we mad at him for doing this… no way, as he transformed that once blank white figure into an awesome looking rendition of Wolverine. This started out as a 4” Munny, and he now stands about 5.5”… how rad! I love how it still holds that realistic look and feel, yet harkens back to the comic book, with the much larger head and mal-proportioned extremities! David mentions that he used real stainless steal for his blades… and why not! Keep up the amazing work, dude! http://dlvr.it/3Pd2yX
