Gotta show some love to fresh Chicago toy and art boutique, Rotofugi, for this unique new, yet old-school way to create vinyl art figures.
They brought back the Mold-A-Rama machine from the 1950s, rehabbed and renamed it to the Roto-A-Matic, and enlisted some designers to sculpt a toy that the machine can sculpt for you, for only $6. Last month's toy was Tim Biskup's "Helper Dragon" (seen in the slideshow above) and was inspired by the classic green Army Man figures.
Be sure to pay them a visit in Chicago or online to find out more and get a toy for yourself. Video of the Roto-A-Matic at work can also be seen below.

"Reflection" is a collection of the work Andres has completed within the past year. The artwork consists of portraits of individuals who have inspired him artistically as well as pieces depicting the direction in which his art style has been evolving.
The artist's medium of choice—watercolor—is as unpredictable as the inspiration behind this exhibition: iconic public figures and pop culture personalities.– Phyllis Navidad, Gallery Owner, Pop tART
Zombies drip blood, celebrities drip gold. While zombies follow the scent of flesh, ‘celebrity’ trails the stink of attention. These digital prints, part of Lee Queza and Daniel Calderon’s I ART YOU 78/83 partnership, bring a new subtext to the idea of fame and might be the hippest Halloween decorations we’ve seen. ~via Fab
