I got some little 1-inch Spade-Skull buttons made. Another thing I've wanted to do for ages that I finally got around to doing. I'll throw one of these into each package that I send out along with a few stickers. Speaking of which, my new stickers should be ready next week or so- these are much nicer than my old batch. Hopefully they came out right. I still want to make a Spade-Skull rubber stamp, and some Totem buttons. Those are next on my list.

Also coming up on April 10th is Humans Beware - I.W.G. Custom Art Show. The show is curated by Drilone and being held at Rocketworld, creators of the Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo Toys. This is Dril's first foray into curating, and he's doing a top notch job. There's an impressive 80+ artist lineup that will not disappoint. Some sneak peaks have been showing up online, such as Cris Rose's Vespbear. My custom I.W.G Bear is almost done- there might be some sneak peaks in a bit so stay tuned.

Here's the flyer for the New Moon show at Myplasticheart. Curator John Wong hand-picked 25 artists to interpret the signs of the Chinese Zodiac. I chose monkey- really for no special reason other than I think they're kind of cool. Also I opted to not paint a custom toy for this show. Instead went the 2D route and painted a canvas or two. So if you're in NYC on April 10th, be sure to check it out.

Here's my custom ILLAZILLA for the Attack of the ILLAZILLA Mini Tour. This ended up completely different than how I initially started it. I wish I had more time to fine tune it, but the show opens this Friday at APW Gallery in NY, so I had to call it quits and get this puppy in the mail. There's a nice line-up of artists participating in this show, so if you're in the area you should definitely check it out. After the New York stop, the tour continues to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and then Hawaii- nice!
Update: My ILLAZILLA got some nice coverage over on Vinyl Pulse- check it.
