FREEKS & GEEKS
O.K. I pulled this post directly from Garnet's blog. For all you Americans out there, I think the cost comes to $57 bux... a pretty sweet deal if you ask me.
Alright...after a crapload of blood sweat and tears...we've finally got the Carnival Cartoons Store up and running! Our first offering from this little online emporium is a limited edition vinyl toy of "Buzz Carney - The Tattooed Strongman". Buzz is one of a series of 8 characters Garnet Olsen (my Carnival Cartoons cohort) and I plan to independently produce based on "The Carneys" an animated series idea we have. The series, and the toyline is a celebration of the freaks, geeks, and tattooed oddities that were once commonly found on the carnival midway. If you collect toys...don't miss out on getting your hands on this ultra rare high quality piece while we still have em in stock! Act now cuz we only made 250...and the first 40 are already sold!
Check out: http://carnivalcartoonsblog.blogspot.com/ to place your order.
And keep checking back at the store for more goodies to waste your hard earned cash on. In the next couple of weeks we'll have some more killer products! Help support the independent artist!

I recently threw together a little header for my buds over at Pop13... www.popthirteen.com Be sure to check out their site for really sweet toys & outsider art news. They will be one of the 1st to carry the Buzz toy along with Kid Robot and Toy Tokyo. So keep an eye on their site for more updates. Thanx Josh!

Buy It... Now
Well I figure I've bought enough off of Ebay, now it's time for me to give a little back. Yeah, I'm that guy you're always bidding against on the super sweet Spumco drawings. Anyways, I've never sold anything off of Ebay, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I went to pick up the left-overs from the "Too Art" show tonight at Stay Gold. I have a few left over from each of the 3 prints so I figured I'd start listing 'em. The more you guys buy, the more I'll list. I've got prints, drawings, inks, t-shirts, & toys. I'm startin' out slow with just the 1 item for now. The 1st up for bids is a 5 color screen print "Geekin' out" The Midway Modern. This print was goin for $120. at the show, but it could be your's for almost half the price. Each print comes unframed but is both hand signed & #'d by my stupid-ass. Yeah, yeah, totally biting off of Katie's post, I know. C'mon folks, shows me some luv. Heres the url... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6607759859

Wow, it's been a minute since my last post. Thanx to those of you that have been stickin w/ me. Anyways... a couple new things in the works. I've been lucky enough to have landed a little freelance action on the new Camp TV show over at Neptoon Studios. I was honored to be able to work w/ such talents as Todd Kauffman & Joel Trussell. Wish I had a little more time to dedicate to the show, but I was able to do a few designs including this shark & also a little posing.
The Stay Gold show finally came to an end, from what I understand it was a big success. Looks like they'll be doing the "Too Art" animator show annually. They've posted pictures of all the artwork for sale & also more pics from the opening. You can check 'em out over at www.staygoldgallery.com
I'm currently prepping for another gallery exhibit. Over at Maxwell's in Hoboken. This time all of the art is to be produced on skatedecks. With the universal theme being "curious" I'll post more info along with some pics of my decks as the show draws near.
Toy Fair was in town this week & although I didn't attend I did get to go to some of the parties. I went to the High Five store opening in my neighborhood which was pretty fun, even got to meet Futura. Also went to "The Terrible Toy Fair 3" over at CB's 313 Gallery. Man some really twisted stuff at this one.
There's a few more things I'd like to mention in the works, but I should probably wait til they're more set in stone. Stay tuned & I'll do my best to keep you updated.
