Presenting the works of FANFICTION. Featured above and below are the pieces; “Invader Kankomausu”, “Unknown Grunt c. 1943″ and “More Ovaltine Please”. A drawing and a few prints are available here.

We will be keeping you updated as we receive further updates regarding the planned toy sculpt :]

In a world where girls grow up feeling like their value is how they look, these are meant to be a friendly reminder that they can do anything. That they can dream up their lives and make it happen. In the end we all do, its just how big we dream.
Amanda Visell‘s inspirational new Posters for Girls (16 x 20 semi gloss. $30 each or all 4 for $100) should give any girl that reminder to keep reaching for their dreams. Personally if I was a girl, I’d go for the maverick poster, it just screams cool badass :]
