the Destroyer, a handmade designer art toy

It means… The Destroyer. Created by the infamous Dr. Mageddon upon the orders of Arc, King of Thorns, these agents of destruction are being sent out to conquer.
Conquer your heart. Look at them, they're so freaking cute!
Any way, backstory aside, these are 4 inch tall, hand-poured resin toys. They have three points of "articulation" and come complete with air-flow action cape (patent pending), as well as a signed and numbered header card.
They'll arrive to you safe and sound in a fortified recycled box.
Made with hours of love in the hope you invite one in, find it a perfect spot on a shelf (and in your heart), and then watch it DESTROY!
After all, they are, der ZerStörer!!!

Epic Carnival at Daniel Rolnik Gallery


Daniel Rolnik Gallery in LA (2675 S La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90034) presents Epic Carnival featuring local artists, bands, comedians, celebrity dogs, and a new art show June 11 from noon until midnight.  This is  the next step in the war against the whitewallians (cold and unfriendly feeling galleries with sterile white walls), incorporating the community of Los Angeles and enabling people to sell their own art as part of our festival. Featuring galleries from Pasadena, Highland Park, and West L, quarterly local art magazines  and JT Steiny, an artist and professor from OTIS College who is bringing a whole collective of his students to participate. They will be building a photo station and doing live projections over the bands. Plus some more surprises.
