Bay Area artists JFury, JRad, ValleyDweller, and Spazda1 will be at the Go Further Action Store, located at 838 Market St in San Francisco, for a live art event on 12/14 from 1-6 pm.
The Go Further Action Store is a pop- up store organized by Ford Motor Co that focuses on design through film, gaming and designer toys. Kidrobot has a shop located inside the store and will host this live art event. Artists will work their magic on Mega MUNNYs and canvases, while local DJ talent entertains the ears. 2k will be giving away game packs at the event, and refreshments will be served. The Kidrobot store is open from 11am to 8pm on weekdays, and weekends from 10am to 7pm. Check out the GoFurther Facebook page for more information, or hit up Kidrobot San Francisco!
Preview of pieces for my booth at Designer Con. Come by and say hi on Saturday! Booth 728.
8×10″ Pen and Ink on Bristol.
Growing up, I sunk a lot of quarters into video games at the bowling alley through the woods and across the tracks in my hometown.
One time I was running home down the street and was bitten by a German shepherd, and was bitten by two other dogs on different occasions.
We also smashed a bunch of pennies on the tracks, hiding in the woods while the trains blew past.
Also represented in this piece are two surgeries and two stitched lacerations, one from skateboarding and another from a golf club to the forehead.

Good thing nobody reads this blog, or they’d realize how behind I am.
vlldllr.tumblr.com ended up being far easier for me to do noncommittal updates to. Here, I feel obligated to actually write things and give real news.
Things I wanted to do but haven’t gotten around to:
Year in review: 2011. Until then, there’s this bit that Andy encouraged me to contribute to, thanks for that push. http://toysrevil.blogspot.com/2012/01/11-pixs-for-2011-valleydweller.html
D-con wrapup (see image at the top). Sold a bunch of Ch’Orbs, finished 3 Qeesassins in a Can.
Show updates. Swampy Blamo show, Mummy Mania at Super7, finished piece for Bad Applez online show, finishing up pieces for Dragatomi’s Year of the Dragon that opens this saturday, Earth Movement, and then I’m clear (except for commissions) for awhile.
Store updates (had a good Black Friday, and hit over 500 followers so I had a 50% off sale at valleydweller.bigcartel.com on the 5th of January)
Day with Toy Break. Made ten October Ch’Orbs in a day to help contribute to Toy Break during the podcast-a-thon.
A pair of custom Muttpop Mini Gobi have been completed and added to my webstore to help fuel my trip to Designer Con.
