I am excited to be part of Louis Bou’s latest book, We Are Indie Toys: Make Your Own Resin Characters. Making resin toys is a lot of fun, and this book has a behind the scenes look at several resin toy artists, including JEMTOY!
Several colorways of Kaijina the Bug Girl are available at: jemtoy.bigcartel.com
My family and I drove across country from California to Maine, and now Swamp Bogger, Philly Lou Bird, and Yupapotamus are home at Washington Pond, Maine. This is the lake I grew up on, listening to my grandfather’s old logging tales about these weird critters. Many of the old timers here know stories about these critters, and it’s fun to see the enthusiasm they have in telling them. We’re staying at my Dad’s house, looking for a home of our own somewhere in the area. I’ll keep you posted. Jay~
Because I am traveling again this summer FOE Store & Gallery will be handling my handmade resin toys. I shipped a giant box of over a years worth of art work to Jim at FOE. I sent a ton of stuff, like the very popular 5 inch Kaijina the Bug Girl toys in various colorways. Also at FOE are my 5 inch “Big G.E.A.C.” toys named Sgt. Wilbur because everyone needs a big pig with a gun.
I am moving from California back to Maine to work further on my Mythological Maine series called Yupapotamus Pond. FOE has a couple play sets, and one is glow in the dark! Each set has a Yupapotamus, Swamp Bogger, and a Philly Lou Bird that are characters from old logging stories my grandfather used to tell me as a child growing up in Maine. The characters are old Americana from the North East, and many folk of the older generation know the tales of these and other strange critters that go bump in the night. My move to Maine is to work further on my research on these old stories. This project means a lot to me, and is very near and dear to my heart. For some reason it is so important to me to keep these stories alive, and I need to be back in Maine to do it proper justice. Each play set also has a Swamp Bogger necklace and comics!
Also in that mighty JEMTOY box are GID Gompers, new G.E.A.C.s, some way cool two toned opaque/clear Stompin’ Gompers, and a bunch of other surprises. It will take them a while to photograph and get all of it up on their web site, so if you are interested in purchasing any of these items contact the folk at FOE and swing a deal or click here to see what JEMTOYs are available at the ShopFOE.com site. Even better, if you are in the Northampton, Massachusetts area drop by and have a look first hand. Ask Jim or Nicole if you can see the JEMTOY box before the best stuff is gone.
I have a feeling it’s gonna be a great summer.
Thanks again for your interest and support, J.E.Moores.
I’ve been casting my brains out. Getting experimental with casting in different ways. Glow in the dark, swirled colors, opaque/clear combo. I pour one color, then mix and pour another color to create colors that are in the plastic, not surface paint. Lot’s of unpainted pure plasic toys as well as a few with Black Rub finish. Soon a bunch of new Gompers, G.E.A.C.s, and little Weirdo Packs will be bundled together at: jemtoy.bigcartel.com
I have a few sets of Bush Bats available on my bigcartel shop.
I made a bunch of bizarre Cryptid Critters and put them together into Weirdo Packs. Each pack has the 5 critters in random colorways with at least one figure Glow In The Dark. Illustrated header card completes the package. Get it on!
Got my first copy of Slithgarn and the Gompers 3D Anaglyph Print I made a while back. Here it is on my wall, and it looks great when wearing my red cyan 3D glasses. The leap from computer monitor to printed paper is always more difficult than it should be. I was worried that the image would not print right, but it came out well. The 3D effect works great. Print is available in two formats:
Red cyan 3D glasses sold separately.
