UK Artist James Jarvis has been out in Tokyo hosting what we hope is the first of many Amos Miniature Workshops and despite the heavy Tokyo rain there was a splendid turnout where visitors could buy James's artwork and get in on the act and be a part of James art by inking the first Japanese Wisdom of Caleb cartoons. More info + pics after the jump.

Hosted at One Gram in Tokyo this little workshop was a great opportunity to meet James and collaborate with Amos and check out their latest wares in the form of Caleb. One Gram being the perfect location for such a figure who adorns tees paying homage to streetwear brands like WTAPS, Bape & Supreme.

Also joining James and long time collaborator Russell were two 4ft Caleb figures who are just crying out for some t-shirt designs to adorn their robust figure! One of these would look superb in my house if Russell happens to be reading this ;)

Check out more pictures here on the Amos blog and the final cartoons can be seen here on the Wisdom of Caleb blog.

    James Jarvis is a name you don't hear too often anymore in the world of designer toys. And while this isn't exactly a designer toy, it's close enough for me. Case Studyo have teamed up with one of the fathers of Western vinyl for a new ceramic piece titled AMPHORA.

    We've not heard much toy-wise from James Jarvis, aside from some wooden editions of his Yod character. But this year marks the 10th anniversary of the Amos brand and to celebrate they are opening the AMOS Generic Character Brand Store in Tokyo for a 5 days only.
