Radioactive Marnon
2008-03-15 22:38:00
I don't normally post about Kaiju toys, cos it's a whole other world of collecting that I'm too scared to delve into. However, this Dream Rocket X Rotofugi Marnon version I found HERE really stuck out to me.I love the details on Radioactive Marnon's head, with the brains coming through and his fingertips have some wicked internal detailing too. Marnon's back is covered in lost souls with his tail made from the bottom soul puking its wretched guts out! A brilliant idea, that deserves a mention on our blog.

Sushi Art
2008-03-13 18:25:00
"Sushi chef Ken Kawasumi shows a replica he created of Vincent van Gogh's 'Sunflowers' made of sushi at a press event in Tokyo Thursday, March 6, 2008. Kawasumi displayed his skill of transforming sushi into a colorful work of art at the special event celebrating the publishing of his new book 'The most simple way to make decorative sushi-rolls' in Japan." Probably the smelliest version of Van Gogh's Sunflowers too![VIA]

Tekkon Kinkreet
2008-03-12 15:36:00
Tekkon Kinkreet or Tekkonkinkreet (the English version) is a feature length anime. It was released in Japan in 2006 and was adapted from the one volume manga series by Taiyo Mathumoto: Black and White. The film was originally supposed to be directed by Koji Morimoto who wanted to turn it into a 3D film. But after realizing that there is grate difficulty in expressing emotion in 3D, he lost interest in the project. Then Michael Arias was allowed to direct the film after he persuaded Studio 4șC to give him a chance. This has made Michael Arias the first non-Japanese director of a major anime film. (So for all you aspiring non-Japanese that want to get into the anime business there is hope. But remember he has worked he non-Japanese butt off for many many many years prior to this film, and has lived and worked in Japan for over 15 years.)Tekkon Kinkreet takes place in Takara Machi (Treasure city) and centres around two street kids Kuro (Black) and Shiro (White). They take care ...

Secret Wars Series 2 Grand Final
2008-03-11 21:18:00
I was nervous. It was the first time Cafe 1001 had hosted an event like Secret Wars and I was really worried that our regular punters wouldn't show. Fuck that. It was one in, one out by 10pm on a Friday night! The place was heaving and heads from all over came down to witness the live illustration event of the year. It was a really debated Final with loads of drama in the days to follow.....Secret Wars Rules: 90 mins on the clock. Black pens only. Freestyle (no sketches). Go big or go home. The winner is decided by two judges and the third vote uses a crowd decibel reader to see which artist is cheered for more. I was unlucky enough to be one of the judges who would decide which artist would win a thousand quid. Yes, that's right 1,000 GBP for the winner!!!!!!The following is a summary about what happened on that freaky Friday 29th Feb at the Secret Wars Series 2 Grand Final....Illustrator WEN was on the left and Graffiti Artist ODISY on the right hand panel. Both pieces were full...

This is a drum solo video with 12 year old Tony Royster Jr. I originally posted about a child prodigy drummer last year (CLICK HERE) and I have to say that this guy could possibly be better! If I was Royster Senior, I would turn him into the sickest death metal drummer the world had ever seen............Amazing!

Ultra Cool Fireplace Furniture
2008-03-09 12:57:00
We, as humans, have been sucked into the aesthetics of fire since the dawn of man and shit ain't ever gonna change either. Now that we have made some brilliant technological advances over the years, it is now possible to have a fireplace in your livingroom without the need for a proper fireplace or chimney. Planika have created some furniture with built in special fireplaces that use a patened alcohol bio-fuel known as Fanola. It apparently is smokeless and has no known ecological/toxicological side-effects. Amazing! Marshmallows roasting over your coffee table, mmm-mmm.[VIA]

Dave Devries Monster Engine
2008-03-09 12:44:00
Most kids have amazing imaginations, especially when conceptualising monsters, but they usually find it hard to realise their visions. Until now. Dave Devries takes drawings made by children of monsters and then re-creates them using his own skills whilst trying to stay true to the original idea. A great way for kids to see their monsters scarier than life!See more crazy renditions HERE.[VIA]All artwork © MWH Press LLC. All Rights Reserved.

Kenny Wongs Copperhead18 Figure
2008-03-09 12:12:00
Kenny Wong has just given us some teaser shots of his new figure, Dr. Cube. This amazingly detailed 1:6 figure comes with beautifully rendered diving helmet and of course, a range of accessories that beggars belief. Usually, I'm not too into 12 inch figure but Kenny of Brothersworker is one of the few that make me really go wow....(I just dont get how he can afford to create these hyper-detailed accessories like the blowtorch, hammer and wiring for it!)

Adam Haynes
2008-03-07 12:20:00
Adam Haynes has been illustrating for Nike 6.0 (their extreme sports label) for a couple years now and I think he rocks. His illustrations are so rich in detail, yet aren't necessarily made up of clean, straight lines. I first saw his work in a copy of Ride BMX magazine and loved his "rider's perspective", standing on the top of a massive drop off, waiting to just jump or roll into that huge transfer etc. This dude has a really bright future in the illustration game.Thanks to UKAdapta for the heads up.Check more of Adam's work HERE.

Tim Tsui Toy Show at Bodhi Gallery
2008-03-04 00:22:00
Great custom show by one of the original simian toy makers, Hong Kong's Tim Tsui. He shared a show at the Bodhi Gallery on Brick Lane with talented young artist Alice Chan. Da Minci is one of my fave interpretations of the popular monkey designs and to see him making Da Minci into customised as superhero icons is amazing. The prototype (all-white image) looks pretty darn tasty too....More great pics from Doc18's Flickr

Another Evil Mickey Mouse
2008-02-26 14:11:00
I love finding random and darker versions of cute icons, like Mickey Mouse as they subvert what was once a staple part of Western kid culture into zombies or capitalist scum with a mission to destroy. It's the latter theory that forms the foundations for this mad video found from HERE. According to the post, "Toy Box Series, Episode 3: Picture Book 1936? (Omocha-Bako Series, Dai-3-Wa: Ehon 1936) is a 1934 propaganda-ish film about a future (1936) conflict started by a swarm of evil, bat-riding Mickey Mouse clones that descend on a tiny island inhabited by peace-loving dolls and cats (including a Felix lookalike). Overwhelmed by the attack, the desperate island residents bang on the cover of a large picture book to enlist the help of Momotaro, Urashima Taro (the Japanese version of Rip Van Winkle), and other traditional fairy tale heroes and characters. After Urashima Taro uses his famous ?mystery box? to turn the big Mickey into a decrepit old fogey." Sounds like a blatant propagan...

Color Blind artist Learns to Paint by Hearing
2008-02-26 13:53:00
According to an article on the Times Online, Neil Harbisson is a color-blind (Black & white sight only) artist who has recently been given the ability to paint with a full range of colors using a small gadget that allows him to "hear" the hue of the color pallette. He has been fitted with a device called an Eyeborg, which converts 360 colours into different sounds. "As an art student at Dartington College of Arts in Devon, he painted only in black and white because that is all he saw. But three years ago he met Adam Montandon, a cybernetics expert who came to give a lecture at the college. After the talk, Montandon was told of Harbisson?s condition and he took up the challenge of solving the problem, enabling Harbisson to paint in colour. The artist suffers from achromatopsia ? or complete congenital colour blindness. Montandon created the Eyeborg system, which is a head-mounted digital camera that reads the colours directly in front of it. The camera is connected to a laptop comput...

PHESP Review: The Mist (Film)
2008-02-26 10:45:00
PHESP Review : The Mist (Film )Stephen King does it againSo how do you review a film without giving too much away and ruining it for those who haven?t watched it yet? Well let?s just say this film is well worth a watch and kept me curious and intrigued till the end and I would definitely recommend it to all of yall. In short, this film is a ?fiction-thriller bloody monster ?film that should please most people. The Mist is a horror novel originally written by King in 1980 and made into a film in 2007 which was written and directed by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, Green Mile) and stars Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Marcia Gay Harden (Into The Wild, Mystic River), Toby Jones (Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets) and Andre Braugher (Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer).The cast isn?t anything special but actually, I thought the actors did a good job in this one. I went into the cinema to watch The Mist without knowing anything at all about it and came out very pleased...
