Mousehunter toys

petsandowners1After seeing all the excellent Monsterism Pets and Owners figures at the exhibition yesterday, I’ve now become determined to make up my own Mousehunter figures one way or another. It’ll be good practice for the Yetis, which will definitely need toys.

I don’t know why I’ve become fixated with this. I suppose it’s much the same as badges – and I really do like those. The only slight issue is the cost of getting them made. But hey! Merchandise is the way forward.

I used to follow the progression of the Rustboy film, but that’s seemingly died, although the guy did make vinyl toys of his character. So it’s got to be doable right?

I’m in the process of rejigging and designing all the Mousehunter online stuff, so maybe I’ll soon have shop attached to it all. I’d certainly like to get some mouse prints made up. Any ideas for mousing paraphenalia, and I’m all ears, whiskers and tails.

Monsters Inked!

monsterYesterday I went to the private view of the Monsters Inked exhibition at the Idea Generation Gallery in East London. It was a nice show, mainly for Pete Fowler‘s wonderful monster art and his huge wall displaying Monsterism Island.

And don’t listen to the gallery puff of how the exhibition “will explore the inner workings of an artist psyche,” because it doesn’t, and it might put you off going. There’s simply loads of great pictures of monsters, and if you like your designs cool and super furry, you’ll love it.
