JELLYFACE is a project between Joe, a graphic designer, and Fau, a creative dressmaker. The artistic duo based in Italy is making new characters and enjoying art-toys world since 2008. Their work is probably best described as a combination of surreal images, pop-culture and love for nature and disparate materials. Art-Toys are amazing and charming, they are what we are and, like a mirror, they reflect our society. Now Joe and Fau are working on the world of JELLYFACE creating and sewing a new plush family, 100% handcrafted. Pop in and be part of the family!
Gelaskins is having a sale on all of the Bamboo Fine Art Prints, 20% off which brings them down to $24 a pop. Thats a great deal and really helps out if your like me and want multiple prints from many of the artists they feature.
Recently we have seen artist Damien Hirst work with several brands, including Supreme and Levi’s. The latest collaborative project was done together with Harley Davidson. The artist gave a Cross Bone and matching helmet the look of his famous spin paintings. Via GQ.
The motocorcylce was auctioned off last week for a good cause in Los Angeles. Check out the matching helmet in detail.
Noferin has announced a drop date for the previously teased Natural Wood Pecanpals: May 5th. The 6.5-inch figures are all 100% wood and hand-crafted with articulated joints. They will be limited to an edition of “300 friends.” In addition, Noferin adds:
Pecanpals are made from 100% sustainably harvested wood. They are made from rubber tree wood that would otherwise go to waste. Rubber trees are planted for their rubber, and after about 20 years, their rubber yields start to diminish. We use this beautiful wood, thus saving it from the fire pit.No two Pecanpals look the same. They all have very unique markings due to the wood grain. Some are spotted, some have a marbled look, some are a mixture of the two. We are very pleased with these figures, and hope that you enjoy them too.
As if owning your own Pecanpal wasn’t enough joy, Noferin will reward folks who adopt a full set of figures with a hand-carved, hand-cut, hand-painted and hand-pressed wooden print. If you’re on the fence, remember: the painted pals sold out fast, and I’ve yet to read a single negative word about this series.
I’ve seen a wide variety of completely extraneous USB peripherals designed to do nothing more than mildly entertain as they suck valuable electricity from your computer’s sparking, sad heart, but I think that things have reached a new pinnacle of bizarre excess when we’ve started to plug wiggling schoolgirl asses into our computing devices.
As spied over on the always entertaining and disturbing J-List, these $18 peripheral devices by Banpresto are simply and accurately translated to ‘USB Shaking Hip’, and currently come in two varieties : pink polka dots, and blue stripes (though I did see other colors elsewhere, if you’re really that particular).
And indeed, as evidenced by this YouTube video, they do shake around in a menacingly inhuman manner. Not even a suggestive gyration here - just a limbless rocking back and forth. I don’t even have any of my usual suggestions about what to pair this with to amplify its unique qualities. Unless, of course, you’re Armin Meiwes.
