Always Seen and co. would like to give a very special THANK YOU to artist Lou Pimentel!!! We were lucky enough to get to meet Mr. Pimentel during his scheduled signing at the Toy Qube booth #4839, and not only is he an extremely talented artist but as stated before, overall he is just a wonderful person. Even though this was our first time meeting Lou, his approachable nature made us feel like we've known him for years... When all was said and done we got to meet one really amazing artist as well as receive a couple of great customs to add to the collection. Thanks again Mr. Pimentel!!! Please visit Lou's website at www.lou-pimentel.com.
Artist Deph made a guest appearance at the kidrobot booth #4529 during today's SDCC events. He was there at 11 a.m.(PST) for a scheduled signing and the release of his new SDCC Exclusive 8" Fatcap. It's been awhile since the last toy release by Deph but it hasn't seemed to affect his popularity or fan following one bit as most of the newly designed Fatcap was accounted for within the first 15 minutes of the convention opening. Thanks again Deph and kidrobot!!!
Be sure to check out the Always Seen Flickr for images of everything SDCC 2009 related. So far we've uploaded images of exclusives and events along with artists that have made an apperanceat this year's convention. We will continuously update our flickr as SDCC 2009 unfolds so stop by often and check for the updates...
To coincide with the new Luck and Fortune Cat Dunny SDCC release, Mr. Shane Jessup was present at the kidrobot booth #4529 today for a signing session which started at 11 a.m.(PST). As expected, the Luck and Fortune Cat Dunnys that were made available sold out instantly. Mr. Shane Jessup was great to his fans as he signed everything that was presented to him, even though I believe there was a one item per customer limit... Thanks again kidrobot and MSJ for another great release and event!!!

Jeff Soto’s intricate paintings are built of robotic figures and sprawling, organic landscapes. As a prominent member of the Lowbrow (or Pop Surrealism) art movement, the influence of graffiti, pop culture, and comics is quickly apparent. Yet nature always remains the crux of his work, as he’s interested in the ways we are affecting our environment. Jeff Soto’s work has appeared as commissioned illustrations and in galleries throughout the United States and Europe. Watch the interview from “The Run Up, available for the first time to the public for free, on Walrus TV.

Alright, Huck's got a new one for ya... Koalataur the Outkast. But before you all go jumping to the obvious conclusion, Koalataur does not actually have any relation to a Koala. He was born a Liontaur (AKA a wemic, urmahlullu, lion-man) but due to the strange coloration of his fur was labeled an outcast at an early age and banished from his tribe. Koalataur being one of the nicer names he was called, it stuck, and his legend was born. Stalked for his one of a kind pelt, he is constantly on the move, alone in a land of mistrust, traveling the jungles, rooting for answers to his lonely, confused world.
