Back the Cronus Magnus Kickstarter Campaign by Eric Smith

by
Cronus Magnus campaign details:
This campaign is a follow up to my previously successful 2014 Project: Vulkira Kickstarter campaign. Because every heroic robot needs a nemesis, I bring you Cronus Magnus™! By backing this campaign you will help me build on and continue my vision for my line of Vulkira vinyl (and resin) toys and my planned, accompanying Vulkira comic book!

Inspired by my favorite giant Japanese robots and limited to 300 pieces with a painted glow-in-the-dark colorway, Cronus Magnus will stand 10.5" and will have 3 points of articulation, foil belly sticker as well as interchangeable hand/weapon attachments. Cronus Magnus will be packaged in a printed box.

As of the time of publication, it's 27% funded!

Klim Kozinevich Interviewed on Adventures in Design Podcast

by
Our friend Klim Kozinevich of Bigshot Toyworks is interviewed by Mark Brickey on the AMAZING Adventures in Design podcast. They talk toy design and development, working with clients, managing development projects and the evolution of Klim's career... all the dirty details, from tendonitis due to days of sculpting by hand, to the early moment of desperation that led Klim to don a homemade monster suit and hand out resumes outside of Toy Fair.

REALLY fun to hear the backstories of "the dude behind the dude." He's come a long way since then, stacking up some of the biggest brands in the world as his clients. Listen here on the AID website where you can play the track via SoundCloud or iTunes.

For the Masses Podcast by Suburban Vinyl's Rob Lumino Launches on Blindbox Network

For the Masses illustration by Xavier Alvarez aka @inprimewetrust
Rob Lumino (owner of the recently closed Suburban Vinyl art toy shop in NJ) is an industrious guy. Like me, he has always held down a few jobs at the same time, launched new ventures while running other ventures. He knows a thing or 2 about a thing or 2, and frankly, if I were as smart as he is, business-wise, Tenacious would probably go the same way as Suburban Vinyl. But no, Tenacious soldiers on into insolvency and Rob Lumino has already leveled up to the next great renaissance in art toys: podcasting!

Here's his quote on For the Masses, his new podcast on the Blindbox Network:

With Suburban Vinyl closing its brick and mortar, I needed something to do. So to make a long story short, I decided to do a podcast focusing on artists and try to bring them into view as much as their artwork is.
As I was deciding this, GM over at the BlindBox Network, and host of the Blind Box Podcast, asked me if I'd like to host a podcast.

Well great minds think alike and psychopaths do also.

So somewhere in between there is GM and I. (Or me and GM. This ain't a grammar podcast who cares.)

So debuting this week is For The Masses!!! ChrisRWK is our first guest and it's an hour of me getting Chris to talk about his life to this point and he's just beginning!!!

I'd like to also thank our sponsor for this first episode, Boundless Brooklyn (www.boundlessbrooklyn.com).


Send inquiries to: Forthemassespodcast@gmail.com

 During his time running Suburban Vinyl, Rob has met and done business with nearly every working artist in the lowbrow art & art toy scene. It's no surprise that his first guest is someone with a bit of clout: Chris of Robots Will Kill, possibly the most notorious graffiti art / underground art crew in NYC.

Tune in to Rob's new show. I guarantee it'll be a show less about abstract speculation, and more about getting to know the people that make this whole scene vibrant and fun. Follow @forthemassespodcast on Instagram for updates!
