AJ Lafave sent me a resin sculpture and print. Thank you! I’m glad the How To Make Resin Toys book could help inspire such awesomeness. This guy would be fun to mod. I have the urge to give him hair and googly eyes. I’d like to see a show where you post a bunch out to artists, then they return them modded out, and then put together into a show where they could all be seen as a whole. Thanks again AJ, and stay in touch! Jay ~
I’ve been in the mood to create some new games and here is the first completed paper game, The Pitik of Glory. Players take turns trying to finger flick a penny, bottle cap, or glass blob into the hole in the goal post. Who ever can get it in from the furthest away wins. Players start at 20 inches away and if you miss you try again at 19, 18, 17 until you get in the goal. Your score is the number you got a goal from. Easy to play, hard to master.
Gibbs Library in Washington, Maine has some of my Mythical Maine JEMTOYs on display to support the launch of my book, Snotgrass which contains all kinds of strange critters that creep through the muck and mire of Maine. If you’re in the area, take a photo in front of the display case and tag me – I’ll click LIKE on it!!! Wa-Hoooo!
Super Cooper Berella is a good buddy of mine. I have been lucky enough to have been part of several of his art shows in his little home town of Los Angeles, California. We met in an on line forum through our mutual love of making paper toys. As fate would have it, I’m also a big fan of Barry from Storage Wars fame who just got his own A & E television show, Barry’d Treasure. What a hoot it is to see Barry checking out Super Cooper’s massive toy collection, and a great honor to see my resin toys featured. My Bat Winged Gomper and a couple Swamp Boggers made it to the final edit. Thanks to one and all, and big hugs out to Cooper’s amazing mom, Johnny Berella for getting all the release forms and paper work in order to make it all happen.
