Barry’d Treasure, Super Cooper, and JEMTOY

Super Cooper

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.

JEMTOYs at FOE

Kaijina the Bug Girl

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.

Some Pig - Sgt. Wilbur

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.

GID Gompers

I have a feeling it’s gonna be a great summer.

Thanks again for your interest and support, J.E.Moores.

Lots o’ New JEMTOYs

Bleed The Earth JEMTOY.com

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

Slithgarn and the Gompers 3D Print

3D anaglyph print by J.E.Moores

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:

$50.00 for 3D Print Matted and Framed 19″ x 15″ ready to hang.
$19.99 for 3D Poster Print 23″ x 35″ comes rolled in a tube.

Red cyan 3D glasses sold separately.
