Titty-Shaka Resin Figure by Rolling Death Maui

by
The Titty-Shaka is one of Rolling Death Maui’s most iconic designs. The legend behind the design is that Nate Robertson noticed a shaka sketch on a light table at a tattoo shop. Nate sketched boobs on the shaka thinking that everything is better with big boobs on them and the Titty-Shaka was created. Rolling Death Maui has created multiple versions of the Titty-Shaka as enamel pins, stickers, and patches and thought that the design deserved to become a free standing 3D piece. 

Rolling Death Maui is proud to present the Titty-Shaka resin figure. Designed by Rolling Death Maui. Produced by Silent Stage Gallery and ʻUmi Toys Hawaiʻi. The resin figure is approximately 6” made of high impact resin. Limited edition of 100 pieces. The Titty-Shaka retails for $120 USD (plus shipping and handling) and are available now at https://rollingdeathmaui.com/

ABOUT ROLLING DEATH
Rolling Death Maui has been making products from the shadows of the Haleakalā volcano on the island of Maui in Hawaiʻi. The name Rolling Death Maui started as a cool name for a vintage Harley Davidson motorcycle club. Bikes over 60 years old rusting away in Maui’s salty air are mobile death traps in more ways than one. The group of friends still ride vintage Harleys together, but the name became the title of the company. Rolling Death Maui combines personal influences from living in Hawai’i and things that resonate with them like tattoo art, surfing, snowboarding, off-roading, and things that make them laugh. The company started making products that evolved from clever ideas combined with an unapologetic attitude.

WINNING: Sara Harvey Interviewed About Her Toy Collection on Martha Stewart Website

by
I've always referred to Sara as my "social media hero" and this most recent coverage is yet another example: Sara and her epic toy collection was just covered by Martha Stewart!

My admiration of Sara started when I got a glimpse of her epic Pinterest page. I suppose much of her following snowballed from that singularly impressive corner of the web.

One day I hope to put as much effort into my own social media as Sara. Until then I will simply admire her work.
