The Vinyl Vader Show

We've all seen the super amazing, full size, custom Vader head show, yeah? Well making toys, we've done the 12" Darth Vader Bobble-Head Bank, which means that we too have the opportunity to score a handful of heads to customize! Sure, they aren't the sexy, official, full-size replicas, however these bite size bad boys have surely allowed for enough canvas space to paint and modify as each artist pleases. The show will have ~20 customized heads. Don't miss it!

A taste of what's to come!

575 Invades Tacoma!

This last weekend was a great step forward in the evolution of 575. We officially had our own branded booth with signage, stickers and member's repping.

We met a ton of great people got a ton of great feedback and conspired amongst ourselves for a ton of great future.. er, my rhetoric got a bit week with that last bit... :)

There are surely amazing things on the horizon, stay tuned.

For now, enjoy a few pics:

Someone bought some Tapeworm eyes

Part of the booth - lots of tapeworms!

Hats, hats, hats... they are a magnet for trouble! ;)

For those of you we met and stopped by, thanks much. We surely hope to see you in the future.

**Next 575 public event**
August/08 - Seattle

Yesterdays Urban Arts Festival Fair in Tacoma when good. Not a huge turnout, but we were up against the Taste of Tacoma, but we saw sales and potential for the collective to gain momentum and a following. I loved it, it was hot and there were lots of sexy people.
Kyle made some great 575 stickers and great banner. A lot of people asked questions about 575, took cards and will be visiting the website.
So I think it is time to start the ramp up.
Since a few of us are planing on doing more fairs the fair propaganda will start to drive more traffic here.
So Jump in and start posting we know your creative so show it!

Steel insects

I just had to post this robot for the robots that look like robots robot lovers, like me.
This is a Decider From the Retro Xbox game Steel Battalion and Line of Contact 2002. The game comes with a
40 button controller , 3 joysticks and 3 foot peddles. This is the BEST game ever made, hands down maybe except for Redline by accolade 1998. Here is the controller:
Damn I love this game! It takes a lot of skill and team work.
It all so takes a lot for me NOT to play it.
I am currently trying to "Curb my Enthusiasm" for the game, because it has "Arrested my Development " as an artist and I feel like Gob Bluth!
