Gallery Show: "Sideshow" and Real Live at Stranger Factory

Stranger Factory is having two exhibits for the month of August. In the main gallery, Stranger Factory co-owner Kathie Olivas curated the exhibit called "Sideshow", a group show featuring works from Kathie Olivas, Jessica Joslin, Brandan Styles, Desiree Fessler, Valency Genis, Seymour (Peter Kelk), DrilOne, and Phil Noto. "Sideshow" brings the circus to life with artists creating original drawings, paintings, sculptures and customs. Artwork can be purchased online via email from now through Monday August 4th. Be sure to check out the online preview of some amazing work, like the Feejee Mermaid by Daniel Talone.

Also at the Stranger Factory, Leecifer is having a show titled "Real Live", which is going to be shown in the Project Room at Stranger Factory. Leecifer is going to have his Pixie Wisps, as well as a ton of customized figures and sculptures. His work will feature a brighter color palette, with a weathered feel to it. With so many different sculptures and figures, there is something for everyone in Leecifer's show. 

Be sure to email ASAP if you want to secure a piece from either of the shows. 
For those in the Albuquerque area, the opening reception for both shows will take place on August 1st, from 6pm to 9PM at Stranger Factory. Attendees can expect to see some of the artists in attendance.

Bog Boy by We Become Monsters

We Become Monsters is releasing Bog Boy for First Friday in August. Each Bog Boy stands at about 3.5" tall and is not articulated. Bog Boys come bagged with a header card, are hand cast and the color will be randomly chosen for those who purchase one(or more for that matter). 12 different colors are available and each Bog Boy will cost $30. Bog Boys will be available at the We Become Monsters store in Las Vegas, as well as through the online store at 6pm on August 1st.

About Bog Boy from We Become Monsters:
Eternally melting, swirling, dripping and dying can't keep this enthusiastic little freak down! His ever optimistic gaze and joyfully gloppy tentacles reaching for the sky as a reminder to all that whatever you are going through, at least you are not melting. And if you are, hey, keep your chin up while you still have one! A more cheerful little ghoul then I normally create, this guy helps keep me smiling while trying to climb out of the doldrums.

As always, each purchase will come with a free micro SLAB and an entry to win a large SLAB. SLABs are a waste reduction program by We Become Monsters which turns extra resin into art pieces.

Custom Swamp Thing Figures!

Custom Swamp Thing Figures by Charles Marsh

These badass in-progress photos of the Swamp Thing customs were posted by the man himself, Charles Marsh yesterday! This wizard from MonsterForge Studios is in the process of making 5 (Just 5!!!) of these bad boys and is taking pre-orders right now! All you have to do is send him a private message on his facebook account. Only $50 each, plus shipping, well worth the investment for this figure!

F1shcustoms Super Smash Bros. Blindbox Keychains

I stumbled across these fine customizers over on one of the Facebook groups. I can't believe I haven't seen these F1shcustom's work before.  Incredible attention to detail and unique style make their pieces stand out from the pack.

Today you've got a chance to add some of their art to your shelves.  Or keys, in this case.  F1shcustoms drops their Super Smash Bros. blindbox keychain series at 3pm and features Mario, Fox, Link, Samus, Mega Man, Captain Falcon, Zero Suit Samus, Mewtwo and Pikachu.  To top it all off one of the orders will receive an additional mystery figure!

Each blindbox will be $15 and you can grab one (or nine. Just get all nine. Be a collector) via their facebook page.
