The Morot is here!!!


The first sample of the new Spok-spok character is here! Now it's time for changes, always with the changes. We are however in love with the material! Some minor tweaks to facial details, and some size issues, and this character will be insane.

One giant Evirob!


I have in earlier posts mentioned my affection for Devilrobot's character Evirob, now they're releasing an 18" tall Evirob, and it's beautiful! I thought that was worthy of a mention.

In the Spok-spok universe, protos are still being made, now we're at the stage where we're starting to change stuff, just to get it right (and much to the annoyance of our manufacturer).

Illness.

I've been so sick the last few days, and I haven't really been able to do much work, mainly correspondence and light computing. Today I did however put together an order of approximately 50 Toofhairy's and Baron's heading for LA. I have never been so exhausted.

Some thoughts on plush making.

This morning was busy, finding the right Pantone numbers for the new prototypes, e-mailing these numbers to the manufacturer, and creating blue prints of the details that are to be embroidered on the new prototypes. It's all great fun, though, and we're looking forward to seeing the result when the first prototypes arrive in a couple of weeks. Then we'll also share it here on the blog.

Creating and maintaining your very own line of plush toys is hard work. It doesn't seem like a lot of work when you first start out, but as the project grows new things to attend to pop up daily. It is however all worth it in the end. Seeing your art in stores, available to the public is a great feeling, and knowing that you're contributing to the growth of an art movement is even better.

Prototypes for a brand new plushie!

Prototypes are now in production for a brand new Spok-spok release!


The picture above is a sneak peek of the blue prints for our new plushie, and once the prototypes arrive here at the Spok-spok Head Quarters in a couple of weeks, we will reveal more of this funny little guy.

We're very excited about this new release, it's a character we've been wanting to put into production for a long time. Preliminary street date is early September.

If you liked Toofhairy, you're gonna LOVE this guy! We guarantee it.

(Hint: You might find other pictures of this character here on the blog...)
