These initial clay sculpts of Dave Cooper's new critterbox creation 'Furry Girl' look rather snazzy indeed! The sculpt was created by the uber talented Colin Batty who is also responsible for Dave Cooper's 'Eddy' & 'Pip' and the Tim Biskup Helper, and many a stop-motion character including the upcoming Corpse Bride. These clay sculpts will be used to create the 'Furry Girl' statuette. Furry Girl will come complete with a removeable bear suit, which will reveal little transparent underwear! woo! Naughty vinyl!
The T-Shirt club is an excellent concept, and something us Brit's were in dying need of! A new t-shirt design will be released every few weeks. The first design is lovely, and comes from the mind of David and Jodie(aka Peskimo). Each print is limited to just 60 prints, and are all hand numbered. From the preview, the print quality looks spot on! The first batch should be ready for despatch next week, but preorders are being taken now. In the next few weeks, expect designs from swam(aka tesselate) and mimic!

The streets, or should I say, windows of Manchester will no longer be the same! The windows of the Cornerhouse gallery/cinema are now packed with doodles, making it look like Christmas has come early! The oh-so-busy Mike and Katie have been at it again! This time they've treated us to a 9ft high window display! Bootyful I say! If you're in the area, then it's well worth a visit, the walls of the Cornerhouse cafe are also crammed with art by locals such as Lynsey Casson. More images at doodlebug 2005
