Ollie, the Twitterrific mascot, is now shipping worldwide. He was first previewed at San Diego Comic-Con, but now he’s arrived for sale to everyone! Ollie comes in two editions: a normal vinyl version for just $19.95 and a limited-edition flocked (fuzzy) version available for $26.95.
This Friday, December 4th, will be the opening for a group holiday show at Wootini in Chapel Hill, NC. I’ll be there with some painted holiday cards along with some original art and prints for sale. Make sure to stop by and say hello if you’re in the area! Some more information here.
Four prototypes for the upcoming Twitterrific vinyl toy that I designed are being auctioned as a set. Check the Iconfactory for more information and details! Happy bidding!
For the last few months I’ve been working on a few new toy projects to follow up the tremendous fun I had with Zog. But with Zog being the first toy for both me and Strangekiss, we didn’t do any accessories and focused mainly on the figure itself and learning the production process and it’s various steps. To one-up myself a bit, I’m hoping to have multiple toys out this year (both with accessories) and first of them will be Bill the Yeti from the drawing King of the Castle.
For anyone that is interested in what hardware and software I use on a daily basis, I was just interviewed by waferbaby about just that.
I’ve had the great pleasure of being added to the ranks of designers at Infectious. They create vinyl stickers to decorate your walls, laptop, iPhone, and even your car! They chose a few of my existing drawings for stickers and I’m definitely looking forward to doing some custom artwork with them in the future. I hope they brighten up your gear and surroundings!
Today at noon (PST) pre-orders for Zog toys should go live at StrangeKiss for the regular purple edition for $79.95 and the Kozik bloody colorway for $99.95. If you are attending SDCC this year, we have a small shipment that we flew in and we’ll be raffling off 5 per day so make sure to come by to pick up a ticket for your chance to purchase one. The web pre-orders should start coming in within a few weeks since they’re being shipped by boat from the factory.
The production line is in full force and the first toy shipments of Zog and the Murder Zog variant by Kozik are on their way here for a late July release during SDCC. I’ll have more specific details as it gets closer, but you can get some more specs and information at Strangekiss where they will be available for purchase online in a few weeks.
