Eye Creature

We love our clients. We love Lego. So why not combine the two? For our annual Client Holiday gift this year, we decided to design a custom Eye Creature Lego kit. Edition of 6 sets. 444 pieces. 4 instruction booklets. 8 different mouth combinations –  and a hinged top that allows the owner to store all kinds of fun items (as shown below). We even found 2 extremely cute kids from 1972 in my house that wanted to participate in the box design. Disclaimer: This product is NOT affiliated with Lego, folks – this was a gift. Oh, enough already. Check out how we made it below:

We may or may not have a big announcement residing within one of these wax packs next week … Stay tuned.

We’re 5!

Wow, we’re 5. Officially out of the toddler bed but still able to pee in the yard. Not bad. It’s been an incredible journey thus far … thanks to our amazing clients and you (of course). To celebrate the holidays as well as our half-decade, we’re offering free shipping on all US orders through December as well as a new 5″ x 5″ mini-print (with any Leroy C. figure purchase) to hang next to the awkward family photo of that one acquaintance from high school that still sends you Christmas cards. You know the one I’m talking about.

Thank you so much. And seriously, we can’t wait to see what happens in the next five …

Low & Behold

You may have seen a fairly vague posting regarding this last week, but here’s the lowdown: Low & Behold is a new project band that J Martin and I have been working on for a few years now. In a nutshell, it’s really stripped-down classic goth/new wave- for those of you that dig on the likes of Depeche Mode, Sisters Of Mercy, etc. The first release, a 12″ single titled Blood Red, is available for pre-order now here. The record features the title track, plus a b-side (Violent Sound), packaged in a gatefold sleeve, with a 11″ x 11″ 2-sided art print. So, yes, $9 is a steal.

Another Big Day

Ahhh, the first day of pre-school. Today was a biggie for my son – definitely a few tears. Continuing tradition, here’s a quick drawing I stuffed in his lunchbox to ease his first day jitters. Also in the shop for $12.

The First Grade

Time flies. Today is my little girl’s first day of first grade. Just like last year, I decided to make her a quick treat for her lunchbox. Many of you asked for prints last time, so we added an 8.5″ x 11″ print to the shop for $12. All proceeds benefit her lunch fund … and I’m happy to report that there were less tears this year …

Save The Date(s)

Something awesome is unraveling. IC vs. DDC. Portland and Seattle. October 19th and 20th.

Heartwork

What is Heartwork?

Heartwork is a project designed to raise money for art supplies within the art room at Target House—this wonderful home-away-from-home for the families of children facing long-term treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The whole idea started simply enough. We, along with a few other creative individuals, were asked to work on various design projects for Target House. But, in the process, we were so deeply moved by the experience that we didn’t want it to end. We witnessed first hand the special connection the kids had with the art room in particular. It was a place where we saw kids at all stages of health just being kids.

So, we began to wonder, “What if we could create a ongoing way to support more and better art supplies for these children?” It was then that Heartwork was born.

The idea is simple. Every year, a group of talented artists will create a series of prints to raise money for the art room. Each of the prints will feature a different interpretation of the Target House elephant mascot, chosen because it represents family, long life, strength and playfulness—attributes with special meaning at a place designed for families to live, play and heal.

Print details:

Archival giclee – printed with pigment inks on archival cotton rag paper
Size: 11 inches x 14 inches
Signed & numbered editions of 40

In With The New…

Well, it’s about time. No more Flash. And we’re pretty happy about that. Besides the obvious luxury of browsing our site on any platform, we’ve added quite a few new bells and whistles.

Here are the notable additions:

Gift Certificates! Now you can purchase Gift Certificates in increments of $5 (up to $100) for that special someone …

• Discount Codes! We’ll be wheeling and dealing discounts in the shop from time to time, but we’ve got extra special plans for Lil’ Happy Club participants. Stay tuned.

• New Blog! You’ll notice the right sidebar has been given a facelift. Featuring new shop items, new work and coming soon: Flickr sets of our library, toy shelf and annual Lil’ Happy Club submissions. All for the kids.

FAQ! We tried to tackle the standard questions we receive on a daily basis, but I’m sure we’ll be adding more in the near future (ie. Q: “Which one of you would win in a cagefight?”, A: The cage)

Anyways, have a look around. We’ve buffed out the scratches and shined up the fenders for you. Enjoy.

Huge thanks to J.D., Phong, Kim and everyone over at the mighty Instrument for their skills.

Full Circle At Super7

A mighty big thanks to everyone who came out to our Full Circle show/Leroy C. launch party at Super7 on Saturday night. We had a blast. And as you can see above, Leroy did too.

If you find yourself in SF anytime soon, the show will be up for a few more weeks.
