If you're in, around, or planning on being in Chicago in the next few weeks, make it a point to stop in at Rotofugi and catch the delicous show curated by Mark Nagata. More than an exhibition of toys, many exclusive to this event, it's an exercise in the golden rule. The word "karma" in this show's title isn't just lip service to a popular catch-phrase, it's a mandate, a life-style to those...

The Full Metal Jacket Leroy C figure by Invisible Creatures is something pretty...

It's a simple question, really. What would you rather have for the upcoming holiday season, a lump of coal, or a jumping brain? We've seen a bunch of these recently, but this has to be my favorite, if only becasue it nails the "less is more" concept.

Our good friend, and fellow paper toy fiend, Merrci has produced yet another crazy-fun and totally original paper toy. Where he gets it from, I don't know, but I hope he continues going back for more. One of the things I really like about this toy, and his previous one, is the hypothetical and very autobiographical nature of the design. The "what if..?" is such a great theme to explore and in...

The Netherlands have staked a claim in the paper toy scene. So many of the great designers come from this wonderful part of the world. Marshall Alexander, 3eyedbear, [MCK],  and Dolly Oblong to name just a few. Fellow countryman, Mark Janssen, aka Shiny and Colorful is trying to add his name to that list. His signature series, and source of inspiration revolves around that most powerful...

The last Shin bear I wrote about was version #18, did you get #19? Remember what I said about blinking and missing it? Well, here we are now at #20 and it's quite lovely. Really digging the spring vibe as we head into early fall here in the Midwest. With so much of our color dead or dying, this is a great way to put some of it back, on your shelves at least. Another great place for this bear...

To paraphrase from James Brown of course... but it still applies. Marko Zubak continues to churn out beautiful, viable paper. If this post seems like a bit of dejavu, well... This time it's to let you know Marko has released an exclusive for the art blog Be Creative of Die. A mandate by the way, we'd all be well advised to adhere to. There's also a pretty cool interview with Marko [in Spanish...
