Hiya! hope you’re weather is nice and cool because I’ve been burning up these past few days, the AC is doing it’s best but it’s not quite enough lol hello Summer I guess ^_^

Well I’ve been working like a busy bee getting ready for SDCC can’t wait to meet and hang out with all my buddies :) and because I have no Warm’nFuzzy business cards at the moment cuz I’m retaking this personal project and re-making the brand again, I decided to silkscreen 2 designs of sticks to give out to friends and cool peeps at SDCC.

I wanted to get the new warm-n-fuzzy site up but I’ve been too busy with the - For the Love of Vinyl- Project and finishing my Mimobot design the deadline is today 0o0 so I better get back to it!

Hopefully after that I will have time to work on the website and make some 1” buttons - pins to give along with the sticks so wish me luck!

See ya!

I see you - MonsterGirl kinokoko- (by Warm ‘n Fuzzy)
I’ve been feeling sick lately because of the bad weather we’re having over here, I’m like little miss MonsterGirl Kinokoko a little cranky with a bad headache.
Hope to feel better soon, enjoy your weekend~

Takochu pandemic!

Hello ^_^ It’s been a little more than a month that I haven’t  appeared over here so I wanted to drop by and say hello.
I  suddenly fell like me pal Danbo each Takochu represents a  task that I need to accomplish, they are quite fun and it may look as  if they’re hugging me but it can be quite overwhelming to have many of  those things over me at the same time.
It’s Summer, vacation time  for many of you and for me it’s the busiest time of the year but I’m  quite happy :) because soon I will have more time for my personal projects like the vinyl show I’m curating and the re-make of Warm ‘n Fuzzy.
These are exiting times indeed, so off to work I go and catch ya again soon ^_^

SnailMail -: Doodles :-

A few weeks ago, I received another bunch of snailmail that I haven’t shared with you yet, between bills, boxes, magazines, netflix movies and other random stuff I found this envelope with the cutest doodle on it, it surely brought a smile to my face and I was even more happy when I knew it was from my friend Jessie aka OLLA BOKU she sent me a bunch of goodies that I will show you later.

Don’t you just love doodles?  there’s something about them that makes a regular piece of mail extra special, whether they are made with a pen or a sharpie they give texture and character to a plain brown box or envelope, So remember this the next time you sent out a letter :) even if it was bad news at least it would look awesome.

I’m off to work now, I’m doing tons of stuff at the same time and it’s hard to keep up, gonna write some pending emails for the FLOV project so I can start screen printing promos like stickers and t-shirts withing the next two weeks, it’s gonna be fun!

See ya later, and don’t forget to doodle! ^_^

- LIL’ DEATH - by Paul Shih

  Hiya! Hope you’re having a great Friday, I’ve been good ( sick at the moment) but otherwise pretty good today I’m going to talk about a wonderful art toy that I received in the mail a few weeks ago.

I’m talking about  LIL’ DEATH a cute but sinister character from the Hollow Threat Metal Universe all created by Paul Shih an awesome friend and talented designer from New Zealand. LIL’ DEATH is a great exclusive piece to own because it’s limited to 20 figures Worldwide!

I admire Paul’s work because he has exactly the kind of aesthetics that makes me buy toys like crazy, clear lines and chubby round simple design, very Kawaii - Japanese + the fact that I Love all sorts of METAL music, these are just some of the many reasons why his designs speak to me.                                                                                                                           LIL’ DEATH is handmade out of resin by Paul himself as you can see in his blog here and stands 4.5 inches tall, is surprisingly light weight for a resin piece and it smells wonderful like vanilla with marshmallow and to be honest if you don’t know much about resin toy figures you could confuse LIL’ DEATH for a vinyl piece oh yeah! is that good ^_^

So as you can see I’m absolutely in love with this piece and I’m very happy to have it in my collection, you can check out more photos of it over here at my flickr or on Paul’s Website ohh yeah and I forgot to mention that is his Birthday today! so go check him out and congratulate him.  See ya later and have a good weekend!

Fighting It

Haven’t posted in weeks because you know same all  busy busy + the fact that I’ve been fighting the wave again, my batteries are running low these days and I’ve been feeling really bad because I’ve started to feel the pressure and I still have a lot to accomplish by the end of June.

But this time I’m determined to keep going even if sometimes I might come across a bit bipolar  :(:

^_^ so  thanks for writing, emailing and caring you ladies rock! hope to write back soon
Take Care
