Davemarkart There's a Lil Monster Inside Us All

Bad Applez launching with "I'm a Bad Apple" online group show

My friends and talented artists Mike NEMO Mendez and Rob OsirisOrion Ingellis are celebrating the launch of their company Bad Applez Inc. with an online group show they're calling "I'm a Bad Apple." Bad Applez Inc. is currently self-producing resin figures as well as garage kits that harken back to the good old days of DIY toy creation. 
Going live on Valentine's Day (February 14, for us idiot guys who might actually forget the date), the Bad Applez show will feature the works of 30 talented artists. You might have surmised that an apple will be the platform for this show- not rotten old real apples, but nice cheap plastic apples that NEMO found. You might have seen some of them posted on Facebook by the artists that received the platforms! 
Watch for more info posted here, on the Bad Applez site and lots of other blogs!

JC Rivera x TazX Oozie Huntmouth collab customs

Our friend JC Rivera has teamed up with TazX on these awesome Oozie Huntmouth custom pieces. I'm telling you, everything that JC touches turns to gold. The extra added gooey, monster-y flavor of TazX's style make these 2 pieces incredibly special. You can purchase them here in JC Rivera's shop. Don't sleep; I bet ya these will sell within a day or 2. JC says:
TazX and I worked  on a 3" Dunny and a mini munny. We wanted to combine our styles to see what would come up from it. We created some creatures that we called them Oozie Huntmouths.
These are Half Rusted Machines and Half creatures.
