Leaked to Variety, Jerry Bruckheimer has indeed nabbed the film rights to WWR from me! Don't expect any changes in books or toys etc, its still business as normal but with a powerhouse film maker in the WWR corner! Big thanks to Ted Adams, Rick Jacobs and Matt Rosen.
Make new friends with Amanda Visell’s jolly, axe wielding Wood Donkey Dunny. All the forest creatures fear him, so he’s had no choice but to chop himself up to expand his social circle. His philosophy is, the more, the merrier—so watch your fingers. This chummy 8-inch drops on August 20 and retails for $75.
Signings: Amanda Visell will be signing her exclusive new 8” Wood Donkey Dunny from August 18-21.
Artist: Amanda Visell lives in the Los Angeles area by choice. Her artwork has been seen in galleries and museums nationwide including an exhibit and exclusive merchandise line at Disneyland USA. Her portfolio includes original artwork along with toys, books, apparel, limited edition prints and sculptures. She is also working on perfecting her design for the ultimate home robot.
The Kidrobot '09 collection drops with fantastically phantasmal fashions inspired by the work of MAD.
Meet the artist and celebrate the line & the release of his new BoOoya Ghost Mini Series. Plus score an exclusive 3" White Ape Dunny with the purchase of any kidrobot apparel while supplies last. (bandanas don't count)
The fall 09 collection will also be available at all Kidrobot stores and at kidrobot.com starting on August 6.
We know it is still a fair ways away, but it is so exciting we couldn't wait another second. "The place we call home" is our second Solo Exhibition at Copro Gallery. With our little Poppy taking up most of our time, it has been a huge effort putting together a new body of work. We are really happy with the new direction our work has taken, and can't wait to share it with you.
Opening Reception: Saturday, Sept. 5, 2009
Copro Gallery 2525 Michigan Ave. T5 Bergamont Station Santa Monica, CA, USA 90404
Starting on August 15, 2009, Bic Plastics will have 3 Buddy releases in 3 major cities. So if you're in Los Angeles, New York or Chicago come out and meet the artists! Who says you can't buy friends when you can buy Buddies!

Be sure to visit the newly re-designedOriginal-Fake website at www.original-fake.com. The website now includes an archived gallery as well as an upcoming releases section. In my opinion, I think the new design is great!!! There's an abundance of new content and the layout is alot more interactive for its viewers. Just like many others who collect art, I'm a very big fan of Kaws so I'll definitely be checking the new website often for updates.
This was Always Seen and co.'s first year attending SDCC as professionals and we tried to focus more on providing coverage of this massive event, so in turn our pickups list wasn't as extensive as year's past but somehow we were still lucky enough to pick up the items that we really wanted. This year's pickups include: both Luck and Fortune cat Dunnys by Mr. Shane Jessup, a couple of customs from Lou Pimentel, SDCC exclusive Cosmic Pennie by Kathie Olivas, SDCC exclusive Mouse Mask by Ron English, SDCC exclusvie WWRP by IDW, and the Wooden Labbit by Amanda Visell x Frank Kozik. All in all we're very happy with what we were able to obtain and add to the collection. We've uploaded images of everything that was picked up onto flickr and created a slideshow below... enjoy!!!
