Look out for these new 'Death God Necros' prints dropping on Friday (25th) in Skinners online store for $100. Well, actually only the blue/purple print above will be available because the green variant below is saved back as a SDCC exclusive. These prints are a massive 10-colours people!!!
Skinner writes: 'Who knows what fell deeds this undead warrior hath wrought upon distant lands!! What black hearted god doth he serve!!! AND WHY??! All questions that will plague your mind as you stare forever more upon this outrageous ode to old school fantasy and nostalgia! This is my most ambitious screen print to date! Printed by the now legendary Monolith Press, this print will have your dad jealous! Created out of my love of old school illustrators and movie posters from the seventies, I wanted to make something that could inspire old school stoned out rockers as well as young stoned out rockers in training! WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE YA STONED OUT ROCKERS!! Dream heavy the ancient dooms that await your hero in the hell of oblivion!!'
Any budding artists, designers, illustrators and general creatives will definitely want to check this one:
“MAKING IT” follows Woodrow Hinton, an Illustrator and Professor, as he interviews these three artists about art school, business model, and the day to day struggles of living as a blue collar artist.

London based street wear brand Anyforty will soon be opening their new charity group show having teamed up with over 25 artists from all over the world. It will take place at 5th Base Gallery (just off Brick Lane) in London, where they will be selling limited edition prints of all the artworks and a selection of brand new t-shirts. All profits are being donated to the UK registered charity The CALMzone in memory of their friend Dave Williams.
The show opens on Thursday 24th July and will run until Sunday 27th July. Any merchandise left after that date will be available at AnyForty.com for those unable to make the show.
MELBS' was awesome enough to send us an exclusive look at his print - cheers dude!
I've just stumbled across the work of Brad McGinty and well, with these accompanying images as examples of what he does, do I really need to say anything more! Pure awesomeness and definitely someone you should check out if you like disgustingly RAD shit!
Well, looky what we have here then... Mondo moving into the toy game? AND making TMNT toys at that? Sorry guys - been there, done that!! This Lil Mikey vinyl does look cool though. The retro ice cream is a nice touch (oh, the sweet memories...)
Mike Mitchell writes: "I am so dang excited to finally be able to talk about this. I honestly can't believe this is a real thing. I got to design a Ninja Turtle toy! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that to be a possibility. I'll have a prototype at my table at SDCC (#2743) and Mondo (#835) so swing by and check it out! Pre-orders will hopefully be going up in the next month or so."
Also look out for their upcoming 'The Iron Giant' figure (with 30 points of articulation) and Alfred Hitchcock 1/6th scale action figure (no pics yet sadly). Read the full article HERE.
