Jeff Soto On Art Today

"I was just thinking about how this art scene has evolved over the last 15 years that I have been involved (street, pop surreal, lowbrow, graffiti, illustration, whatever, I have been involved with all these genres). There's good and bad changes for sure. I was also thinking that I have met and befriended so many artists in my career that I cannot write and be critical of any type of art without offending someone...

I can say this - I am looking for something fresh and original and new, and I'm not finding it as often. The art I enjoy most is complex, has symbolism and metaphor, it has layers, it makes you think. You have to look for awhile and digest it. Much of what I am seeing the last couple years is quick face value art, you see it once and you "get" it. It's pretty, and well made, and you understand the message right away. Maybe it's a reaction to our fast paced Instagram society. Maybe artists are making art (consciously or unconsciously) that they know will be seen mostly on social media for a second or two as people swipe by it. I feel like there's a "ok, onto the next piece!" mentality instead of taking a lot of time on a painting. I dunno, just some thoughts while eating breakfast this morning..."
- Facebooked Jeff Soto (Do check the FB-link for tons of commentary and feedback). Shown below is the montage of artwork posted by Jeff Soto along with the above text.

I remember when my parents mentioned "being an artist" is a sure road to starvation (or sumach malady) that my "personal desire" was ever more heightened, for me to want to succeed as a comicbook artist - which I never did till now actually, but it never was really about the bills … nevertheless, with the advent of social media, I can attempt to "pretend" to be one, bolstered by the "Likes" and ind compliments I receive for my pseudo-pin up doodles, which is"perfect" for us wannabes! But agreeably, it might drag other "more serious" practitioners along with us down the path, as seems "anyone" can be an "artist" in this day and age, even it means within their own social network, IMHO.

But hey, I am not a practicing artists here, aren't I? What are YOUR thoughts on this?

Aluminum Cold Cast Metal Tuttz Minis by Argonaut Resins Relisted

"As the year closes out I'll be adding some pieces to the store from a few older runs I kept on the side for new followers who missed out.

DC Comics Movie Poster Covers - Depicts Comicbook Superheroes & Villains in Classic Feature Film Posters!


DC Comics unveils 22 Upcoming Movie-Mashup Comic Book Covers and I am left smiling from ear-to-ear! Some are perfectly blended, some are "WTF"-hilarious (I'll let you figure decide for yourselves), but most of them feature my fav films too! Here are some of my favorites, with all 22 images uploaded here on PopcornX Facebook.
"Inspired by classic Warner Bros. movie posters, DC Comics’ newest batch of variant covers are fun, imaginative…and NOT coming to a theater near you. But you’ll wish they were. Whether it’s Supergirl realizing that she’s not on Krypton anymore, Aquaman fighting to Free Willy, Batgirl ready to lead the Revolution (just think about it for a moment) or the Justice League…well, it’s best to just see that one for yourself.

These clever movie poster mashups are the most recent in our series of monthly variant cover themes. Previous themes include monsters in October, LEGO in November and this month’s amazing Darwyn Cooke variants. In January, we’ll be featuring variant covers that pay tribute to the Flash’s 75th Anniversary, while Harley Quinn steals the stage in February. Look for the 22 movie poster variant covers at your local comic shop in March, 2015."
(All images via dccomics.com Part 1 + Part 2)

And while I may not necessarily purchase all the comicbooks with the covers, I would be more than happy to procure mini posters of them, or even postcard sets!

New 1/6 Figure from 1000toys to debut at #ToySoul 2014


And while I've not had the privilege of owning the "1/6 Synthetic Human Test Body" from TOA Heavy Industries, folks and friends have been raving about it … and seems a new figure will make it's debut and soon, specifically at the coming weekend's Toy Soul 2014 (Dec 19-21, 2014) in Hong Kong - via booth #B09-B16, within the Sen-Ti-Nel booth! BUT alas there will be no items sales this time, so chill, people :)

But maaaaan that black colorway is SCHWEETNESS! Along with a "new" heavy load-tech looking arm piece, seems the "Synthetic" are getting "jobs"… *NICE*

TSUKUYOMI 1/6 from God Complex


GLITCH Network and God Complex reveals images for their new TSUKUYOMI 1/6th Scale Collectible Figure, with a pointer to go WHERE to order the item. Singapore's The Falcon's Hangar has it listed for pre-orders priced at SGD$320 per (Preorder Open Date: 16-12-2014 / Close Date: 12-01-2015) with a launch date scheduled for April 2015.

I will not be surprised to see it on display at the coming Toy Soul 2014 (Dec 19-21, 2014) where God Complex is exhibiting alongside JP Toys from Thailand.

Meanwhile, more images to gawk at, and a lil'write up about "Tsukuyomi" from godcomplexworld.com"


"Tsukuyomi
RACE: RULER | REGION: NIPPON

One of the Three Great Rulers of Nippon. “Silence of the Night” is a title the humans gave him since he only appears during a stormless sundown. Being a quiet and reserved character, little is known about him. His mystery gave birth to legends and rumors. Ancient humans believed that the traditional blade he is carrying was so sharp that he used it to cut up the moon, and at every quiet night, he would slice it little by little to appease the wrath of the ocean until one day a new moon replaces the old one. Another legend said the moon was the eye of an enormous demon where misfortunes came from, and Tsukuyomi is the guardian of the night to protect humans from them."

1/6th scale Tony Stark with Arc Reactor Creation Accessories Collectible Set from Hot Toys


It's all about the "props", folks! (At least for me personally…). I had always had a "thing" for miniature sized / scaled "props", specifically sized 1/6th, and had through the years of active collecting, been hoarding amassing products and accessories to be used in toy dioramas, including products from Barbie, 3D magnets and even pencil sharpeners! Then of course here was my "gashapon -phase" of Re-Ment and all manner of Japanese-branded miniature goods … ah yes, the memories …

Sure Hot Toys are infamous for their (licensed) headsculpts featuring eerie likenesses to real life actors, but what impresses me more, are their "props / accessories" - which is now used in abundance, and probably the trump card, for the IRON MN 2: 1/6 TONY STARK W/ ARC REACTOR CREATION ACCESSORIES! And hey, that's a familiar "prop" on the table top too!
"Fans in Hong Kong can firstly purchase it directly at Hot Toys’ booth (F01-12) in Toy Soul 2014 from Dec 19 – 21. Please visit Hot Toys-Secret Base Facebook Page for details."


HOT TOYS PRESS: "In Iron Man 2, Tony Stark was being slowly poisoned to death by the palladium arc reactor in his body, but with the help of the information left by Howard Stark, Tony was able to create a new element for use in a new Arc Reactor. The scene greatly displayed Tony Stark’s immense intelligence when he re-discovered and created a new element by using a particle accelerator.

Hot Toys is delighted to introduce today the new 1/6th scale Tony Stark with Arc Reactor Creation Accessories Collectible Set. This collectible set includes a specially crafted collectible figure based on the image of Robert Downey Jr. as the genius billionaire Tony Stark in Iron Man 2, featuring a newly developed head sculpt, an advanced body with light-up chest light, detailed outfit, the Captain America shield prototype which he has used to level the particle accelerator and workshop accessories.

This collectible set will serve as a great expansion for your Iron Man series collection!"

LITTLE GROOT by Hot Toys (#BabyGroot in 1/4 scale)


By name, the notion and image of BABY GROOT from MARVEL's Guardians of the Galaxy movie has charmed many a folks across the globe, and hankering for toy and collectibles has been hugely popular (based on my own blog's stats :p) … Hot Toys is rolling out a new product, adding to the frenzy, and it sure looks great!


Introducing LITTLE GROOT in 1/4th-scale (I would arguee "Why not 1:1 scale?" but I am sure that license has already been picked up, no?). Standing 12cm tall, the figure was sculpted by Joseph Tsang, and painted by JC. Hong & Lok Ho. The "sweetest" parts of the collectible? It comes with "Three (3) interchangeable head sculpts with movie-accurate facial expressions", and BENDABLE Arms and Waist!
"Fans in Hong Kong can firstly purchase it directly at Hot Toys’ booth (F01-12) in Toy Soul 2014 from Dec 19 – 21. Please visit Hot Toys-Secret Base Facebook Page for details."
HOT TOYS PRESS: "“We are Groot.” Marvel Studios’ blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy, has taken the world by storm earlier this year. Groot has become many fans’ favorite character and the special scene of Little Groot dancing to The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” has been one of the most memorable and cutest scenes from the movie!

Now Hot Toys is excited to present one of the cutest 1/4 scale collectible you’ll ever see - Little Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy! The movie-accurate Little Groot Collectible features 3 interchangeable head sculpts, special paint application to reflect his distinctive appearance, and movable arms and body to recreate Little Groot’s dancing scene.

This Little Groot collectible will be a great addition to your display that will bring smiles to people!"

Dragatomi Is Closing


Dragatomi will be closing it’s brick and mortar location on December 24th, and will remain an online retailer. As well they have teamed up with Sacramento-based "Unseen Heroes", "and will use their facilities as a satellite location. We will have a small selection of items that can be purchased from there. We will also continue to have releases, signings and gallery shows at their beautiful new spot located in the Broadway Triangle district of Sacramento."

Earlier in the year, the folks at Dragatomi had ventured into the food truck business with "Wandering Boba", which has since proved to be more feasible than running a store/gallery … a sign of the state of current toy times, perhaps? Nevertheless Joanne and Ray has TOYSREVIL's heartiest congratulations on their new venture!

"From now until closing time of December 24th, receive 50% off all remaining in-store merchandise. (Excludes original art and paint). We will be temporarily closing our online store so that we can get it ready for our re-launch sometime in January 2015.

We want to THANK YOU for all of the support that we have received for the last 5 ½ years. We thank all of our customers, all of the blog sites that continually supported us by promoting all of our events and releases, all of the artists that we have worked with and especially all of our friends and family."

"Lolgolth Gnazgoroth the head that holds the horror..
The illuminated one, he who knows the truth of the parallel realm.."

Bigmantoys X Unbox: "Shogu-Nasty" (for #StrangeMonsters)

STORY: "Hatano Hideharu, 1541 – June 25, 1579, was head of the Hatano clan, and successfully maintained independance against the impossible Might of Oda Nobunaga. For three years he and his clan hindered Nobunaga's march to Kyoto at Yagami Castle until he offered Nobunaga surrender, and was dishonorably executed.

His enraged spirit maintained itself in the stones of Yagami Castle, causing it to trmor, and deteriorate at a rapid speed. A thick, horrible electricity filled the halls of the castle, making it inhabitable. A proud caretaker remained for several decades alone, until the sound of breathing, living flesh in the walls became too terrible to take.

A year later, the castle was almost complete gone. Vanished. Old wives said they'd seen it slowly thundering through the forset, to the sea. No one believed them until now.

Hatano has returned.

Stone, flesh, muscle, monster, and cannons are destroying the best forces of the East Asian Experimental Mutagen Defence Force. Cannonballs rip through our cities and our best giantified martial artists are unable to offer any notable resistance.

What we can offer him to make him stop, we do not know. We must defeat him.

Japan besseches you, DIE! SHOGU-NASTY!!!"

An epic story for a epic-looking slice of awesome-toyness to come! Created by Lee Burbridge of BigManToys, SHOGU-NASTY is the second beastie to be revealed from the upcoming "Strange Monsters" series from Unbox Industries! (Have you seen Zectron's "Tug O'War" yet? YOU SHOULD!) … Simply *AWESOME*
