Toy blogger and Artist Andy Heng who runs TOYSREVIL (http://toysrevil.blogspot.com/2015/02/toysrevil-turns-ten.html) blog, celebrates his 10 years of blogging and promoting Art Toys & Toys. I’m honored to be asked to help Andy celebrate .. details soon 😉 I had the pleasure of meeting Andy in Singapore several years ago. Not only a good guy and gentleman, I really don’t know how he does it all on his own at a nearly 24/7 pace ! His passion for Toys and Art is evident and we wish him much success for the next 10 years ! Go Andy !!!
Javier Jimenez has just started his IndieGoGo campaign to make his original character, Wananeko, into a Japanese made Sofubi ! It’s only been 24hrs and it’s 78% funded !
Javier, is a super talented artist from Spain whose love of Toys & Japanese culture really comes thru in this project. On a more personal note, Javier is a hard worker and good guy. He’s one of a handful of new Kaiju artists on the scene now that represent the future of indie Kaiju.
He still needs your help so follow this link:
and help him out if you can. Meow !
