Grimsheep VS Happy Panda Toys

Grimsheep is a toy that Happy Panda Toys and Owen DeWitt (aka Grimsheep) have been working on for the past few months. They are looking at a Fall 2011 drop for this guy.

Judging by the teaser image, it would seem that the toys will be blindboxed and possibly randomly arranged or with the abilitiy to be mixed and matched.
I personally like the monotone look with the orange as an accent colour and expect to see the same bold art and crisp lines that are present in Owen’s custom vinyl pieces.

More details and production photos to be revealed soon.

Blackrock Card Deck v2

The newest release at Funkrush!

I hear you asking, “What is this I see before me? Playing cards, or 54 little pieces of art?”

(Ok, so they borrowed the same pitch as their first deck!)

But this is another beautiful deck, lovingly created by over 30 artists of the Black Rock Collective.

The feel, overall brilliantly printed card size and box design are the same as the first deck. As is the varied styles (and nationalities) of the BRC. What IS different about this deck (ingeniously named ‘Version 2′) is the limited palette of classic Black, White and Red. Almost every mix of these three colours artistically designed for your card playing pleasure.

We hope you enjoy it, and if you don’t have the first deck, shame on you!.. so snap one of those up today too!

Price drop for the next 24 hours! so snap them up fast!

Dont forget if you order anything from the store you can get a 10% discount on everything with the code – VINYLABUSE
