Group show at Clutter Gallery in Dec.

We will have a few resin cats by Chris as well as a new painting by Ainsley in the upcoming 'Gift Wrapped' exhibit at Clutter Gallery in Beacon, NY.  The show opens on December 9th and unlike most art shows, all of the art work will be able to be taken home the same day it is purchased.  It should be a good show! :)

We are both really happy to be showing our work at Rotofugi.  It is a really nice store and gallery and we think it is a great fit for our toys and art.  We had a great time visiting Chicago and meeting lots of nice folks at the opening.  Also, to top it off, the talented Susie Ghahremani from BoyGirlParty is showing her work at the same time.

Group Show at Clutter Gallery

We are excited to be taking part in the 'They came from Planet Rainbow Sparkles' group show taking place at Clutter Gallery from now until September 1st.  The show has a rainbow theme, where each artist was given a colour to complete the rainbow!  Our colour was orange :)

New Cats!

Introducing "Poncho Cat" and "Sweater Cat", the newest Grumble Toy characters.  Chris has been busy sculpting the two new cats based on some of Ainsley's drawings.   Both cats stand approximately 4 inches tall and are cast in resin.  This is the first time that we have made characters out of resin and it has been a really fun experience.  We love how, with the addition of pigment, glow powder, or glitter, we can make each individual piece a one of a kind.

This year at SDCC we are lucky enough to have some of our toys at the Squibbles Ink + Rotofugi display (booth 5248).  Both of our new resin figures as well as a special  clear pink "Chubby Tough" exclusive will be available at their SDCC booth.  Any figures that don't sell during the convention will be available through rotofugi.com.

 Each of the resin toys available at SDCC is a one of a kind and some of them even glow in the dark!  Here are a few more close-ups....


 More to come in the near future!  Stay tuned!
