Figure #4 from Mick Minogue's 'Song Of Fire & Ice Action Figure Collection'. Behold the heavily damaged but not quite dead, 'Beric Dondarrion'. Still four more pieces to be revealed! I'll be sad when there's no more...
Oh and don't forget the, 'Winter Is Coming' group show opens tomorrow (March 1st) at Ltd. Gallery.

BLODDY NORAH, check out this new custom by UK artist MAp-MAp!! I seriously need this dude in my life! Shame it was made for a private collector ...lucky git.
"We all have those crazy years, but then birds nest on your head and you have to calm down a little...UNLESS YOU ARE NYTH!!! Since those birds started roosting away on Nyth's bonce, life has been crazy. He's pulling up trees to launch into the horizon, throwing boulder's through mountains, even burrowing into fox dens on the other side of the earth. All this stuff used to happen before the birds arrived, it's just now the top of Nyth's head goes *cheep cheep* as he does it."
Here we go with figure no. 3 from Mick's 'A Song Of Ice And Fire' inspired toy collection. Every character in his 8-piece set is 'Battle Damaged' and 'suitable for wildlings'. 'Winter is Coming' opens tomorrow (28th Feb) at Ltd. Art Gallery. Check out more images of Theon Greyjoy over on Mick's blog.
New screen print series from Sebastian Bentler (thirtythr33), featuring unique hand sprayed and acrylic painted backgrounds. They are 19"x23", in a signed edition of 20. Available right now, HERE for 70Euro each.
Sebastian writes: "Capitalism Makes Me Horny" is about materialism and character. Enticement. Resistance. Balance. Our system. Materialism inflicted chaos. Paradise lost and won. Time versus Eternity.'

I can't tell you too much about the Korean brand that is MOMOT, mainly because of the whole 'language barrier' problem. But hey, if you're curious to know more then why not watch the video below to see the entire making-of process to realise Captain America in 3D paper toy form.
This is the 2nd of 8 figures from Mick Mingoue's, 'Battle Damaged Collection' for the upcoming GoT show, 'Winter is Coming' at Ltd. Art Gallery presented by George R.R. Martin. Look out for the reveal of piece #3 which drops tomorrow!
Peeps who are into their indie toys should think about picking up this rather striking 208-page book to add to their collection and help fuel their obsession. It's available now from places like Amazon for $22.
The indie world is producing extraordinary toy characters but little is known about the designers creating them or the processes used to make them. We Are Indie Toys! profiles the most interesting toymakers and reveals how they turn their unique ideas into one-of-a-kind collectibles.

I basically wish my pasty skin was covered in all of this Mike Giant wizardry. If you don't know who this illustrator is, well... he's a boss! He has proved this to be true by selling out every piece from his exhibition at FFDG. Hit the jump for loads more of these (and I do mean loads more!)
Mike writes: I started to look at modern tattoo designs as well as corporate and band logos as "modern hieroglyphics". I thought a lot about how the symbols of our time would be objectively translated by future generations. And instead of trying to explain it, I made drawings to codify the symbolic language of our time for future observers to translate for themselves.
Holy MF shit bags! This fan made animation just blew my mind! Major kudos to it's creator Mitchell Hammond, who it seems put a ridiculous amount of time and effort into making this, well done Mr. Hammond. Also shout out to Noir Deco who did the music, got a great 80s Carpenter vibe - love it!
Big wigs at DC take note, this should have lots of money thrown at it for a feature length animation!!
