Battle Tails, a live action strategic defense game for Android and iOS that brings Huck Gee’s Gold Life character designs to life, has been funded via a Kickstarter campaign. I am a big fan of Huck Gee’s work and have been for awhile, so seeing his characters brought to life in a game is really exciting. It is always interesting to see toy designers bring characters to other platforms and mediums. Although this project has been funded, there are still stretch goals to be attained via Kickstarter. Check out the latest teaser of the game below!

Back in April, Nate Mitchell, creator of So Analog, with the help of a Kickstarter campaign, raised $15,000 to get his Mini 10-Doh! Series 2 into production. There are 14 artists in the series, including, kaNO, Gary Ham, David Horvath and Shawnimals. Gary Ham, creator of the Monster Toytem, recently released a look at a sample figure with his design for the series, which you can view below. I hope this means that the series will be released soon! Also – in other exciting news – the Series 1 10-Doh! figure is up for “Best Mini Series” in the Designer Toy Awards. In case you do end up visiting the Designer Toy Awards’ site remember that we are up for some nominations including:
What do you think of this figure as a platform? How do you feel this series compares to Series 1, which included artists like Doktor A, Jesse Hernandez, Luke Chueh, and Scott Tolleson?
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the opening reception of Lush Natura, a duo exhibition of the work of Tatiana Suarez and Jason Levesque. The opening was attended by the artists and their fans, new and old. The artwork, all under the umbrella theme of remixing traditional beauty with the uncanny, was exquisitely carried out in the numerous pieces that lined the walls. Remaining artwork from the show is now available online. See additional images from the opening on our Flickr page. This exhibition runs until June 23.
Today we have the final teaser images from the Lusha Natura show opening this Friday, May 24 from 6 – 9pm. To see the full pieces, make sure to come to the opening on Friday, and if you can’t make it, the remaining pieces will be available in our online store shortly after opening night.
