    "Pierce and Dogboy are the Carney family mischief makers! Pierce is the quintessential bratty younger brother, and Dogboy is Pierce's pal, a loving pet, and... a fur covered wingman! Pierce relishes his gross-out gig as "The Human Pincushion" in the family sideshow act. (He's got more holes than a boardwalk put-put course). When Dogboy isn't doing double duty as the family's household hound, and Pierce's partner in crime, he wows the crowds at Barker's sideshow with his furry face and outrageous animal antics!"
    Pierce stands aprox. 5.5" tall while Nathan stands at 4"
    Set will come complete w/ signed mini print!
    Only 50 of this edition so get em before the carnival leaves town!!! Next stop VTN!!!

    TOO ART FOR TV3!!!

    This Friday folks... it's gonna be insane! Always an amazing turn-out. If you're a local animator/artist you need to make it to this show!!!
    taken from the Too Art site...

  • Too Art for TV 3

  • New York's 3rd Annual Fine Art Exhibit for the Animation Industry
    Opening reception - Friday, December 5th 2008, 6pm-9pm

    December 5th through December 15th, 2008
    at Erebuni 158 Roebling St. Williamsburg, NY 11211

    Erebuni is pleased to present Too Art for TV 3, the third annual group exhibition showcasing the fine art expressions of the animation industry. Twice before, this show has drawn in excited, elbow-to-elbow crowds of artists, illustrators, filmmakers, animators, and fans of animation. This year’s exhibit, now the biggest one in Too Art for TV’s history, features 36 artists who- by way of toys, prints, paintings, sculptures, and experimental film- set free their skills otherwise "owned" by television networks.

    The widespread appeal of Too Art for TV lies in the pop culture it reflects. Animation artists are experts in robots, superheroes, and the many incarnations of obsessive "geek" pursuits. They are the lusty consumers of graphic novels, toys, video games, art books, and the fantastical incarnations of pop culture. Their careers make them excellent drafts-people, skilled at drawing and well adapted to the latest design technologies. Loaded with influences and abilities, their personal works when combined create an umbrella genre inviting pop surrealism, geek-core, graffiti, lowbrow, and the finer arts into its shade.

    This 3rd and latest Too art for TV is unprecedented in its variety and scope. Featuring the international interactive downloadables known as Cubeecraft by Christopher Beaumont, the gigantic "public art" totems of award winning animator Patrick Smith, the obsessively small pencil drawings on large rolls of paper by Christy Karakas (creator/director of Adult swim’s SuperJail!), the playful animated Atari-style cats by Ben Ross, the assemblage robot sculptures of longtime animation producer David Lipson, as well as an eclectic array of paintings, prints, toys, and experimental animations.
