INCREDIBLY Talented Artist Jason Jacenko has Massive Stroke, Needs Your Assistance via GoFundMe

I wouldn't wish a stroke on anyone, but it hits closest to home (for me) when it's one of US. And by us, I mean this small, intimate art toy community. It happened to Andy (ToysREvil) and he will be the first to tell you that post-stroke life is NOT EASY. Regretfully, it sounds like Jason's stroke was even more severe than Andy's was, and he's going to need outside help to continue his art career.... to that end, Jason's partner Sally Ann has set up a GoFundMe campaign here to help aid in his care

Jason Jacenko aka Atomika aka 696 Ink Tattoos has produced some of the most whimsical, detailed and gorgeous custom toys we've ever seen.

A Google Image search of Jason's toys just mind-blowing.

Please give a little to this artist who deserves your help.
I just donated.

CHEAP RESIN: The Minatorg by Forces of Dorkness

FROM Forces of Dorkness:

For thousands of centuries the Minatorg has been trapped on planet P. A cybernetic organism designed for a war long forgotten. The evils of hell directly injected through carbon nanotubes into the nervous system of this bio-robo. The Minatorg needs to find a way off planet P. The planet orbits a black hole and has existed in an anomalous state of time. Time is running out as the planets decaying orbit draws it closer to being sucked into the black hole…

This first time collaboration was created by Boyd Braden a.k.a. BOObotcher (Brooklyn, NY), with the sculpt, cast, and production being handled by Scott Kinnebrew a.k.a. The Forces of Dorkess (Austin, TX). The Minatorg, who stands 4 1/2” tall, has 2 points of magnetic articulation allowing you to position both his clawed arm and blaster arm in any position you want. Each figure is cast in transparent red resin, bagged with a custom glossy header card designed by BOObotcher, and assembled using otherworldly red chrome staples.

These are only $25 +shipping, and SUPER limited - so don't wait!
