Hobo Nickel art by Paolo Curcio (aka MrThe)

Paolo Curcio (aka MrThe) works into existing coins to create his own imagery featuring icons from pop culture, literature and plenty of human skulls. Its an art form known as Hobo Nickel art. You can purchase plastic castings of his pieces from his website which incidentally, remind me of the plastic Kini's/slammers that you used to get in your packet of POGS.

Work of Franz Wacik

Yeah we get down with some historical dudes every now and again; so in light of this and having just stumbled across the work of Austrian painter and graphic artist Franz Wacik (1883-1938), allow us to share some of the images we've found…(hit the jump for more obviously)...

Life through a Google Street View lens by Jon Rafman

I like to think that the photography for Google Street View is collected by just two blokes in a van on an epic adventure, driving down every road and through every neighbourhood until they have mapped the entire world. This is a collection of outstanding imagery captured from Street View and collated by Jon Rafman. See more on his blog HERE.

KUNG FURY by Laser Unicorns [TRAILER]

Thanks to the awesomeness of crowd funding, KUNG FURY is destined to be made! Just watch the trailer and tell me this isn't right up our street! (well, if you're partial to 80's cop film inspired video game infused madness that is). They are currently $100,000 over their initial goal on Kickstarter but you can still pledge to be a part of this must see movie.

'Visual Funk: Jim Mahfood' - film from Dope Vinyl

If (like us) there was no chance of you getting to see the recent Food One exhibition at Hero Complex Gallery then you're in for a little treat. Jordan Ahern of Dope Vinyl has shot and edited this video of Mahfood at work, painting, prepping for the exhibition and at the gallery itself on opening night. It's a great little film with rather pleasant tunes and well worth a watch if you dig Mahfood's work. You can also check out the pieces (and prices) from the show HERE.

'A Krampus Christmas' - from Screen Novelties

Just realised we haven't featured nearly enough Krampus action this year; apologies for this, hopefully a great little stop motion animation from the LA based studio Screen Novelties will suffice for now.

If you end up a little 'light' on toys this festive season why not head on over to Squatties and make your own!

We've come across quit a few downloadable paper toy designs in the past but these bad boys from Bristol based Matthew Hitchcock are awesome and ridiculously easy to make, which means you could get a whole cabinet filled in an afternoon with the likes of Boba Fett, Walter Whilte, The Joker, Zombie Hitler, Scroobius Pip, Robocop, Banksy, Wolverine…..and the list goes on…..!

So get Granny cutting and sticking this Christmas and load those shelves with paper toy awesomeness!
