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.
How To Make Resin Toys by J.E.Moores. This book is intended to provide an artist with the basics so you can get in there and successfully cast your very own resin toys fast and easy. Glove Molds, Putty Molds, and Block Molds are all discussed, as well as finishing, painting and packaging ideas to complete your resin toy. Check out the free preview. How To Make Resin Toys is available bound in soft or hardcover now in the JEMTOY bookstore.
Who you calling RUNT? Sargent Wilbur stands 5 1/4″ tall and is a real American hero. Ready to defend us all to his death if need be. Now that’s some pig. Hand cast resin toys by J.E.Moores are intended for collectors age 15 and up. If you’re into pigs, or guns, or pigs with guns, this is the toy for you. Not exactly sure what I’m trying to say with this piece. Is it pro-gun or anti-gun? Both at once? Who cares! A pig head on an army guy is packed with enough political meaning to wow the most critical of critics. So don’t just sit there, these things are limited and going fast. Hey fat boy, if you want one, the only way to get one is to order it here and now because you can’t find these things in Walmart. Put down your Coke Zero, and click: jemtoy.bigcartel.com to see if these things are still available.
Often I post stuff to my Flickr page that is up for sale. A lot of these items are not listed any where else. If you would like to check out the art I have available click: Flickr JEMTOY Store.
