ENDING RADIO SILENCE
Greetings fellow post-nuclear vermin! The interruption in our broadcasting this summer has finally ceased following countless hours of litigation. Censored by the government, shackled by the social constraints of family, and temporarily detained by the siren’s song, Apocalypse Popsicle is back online. Rejoice! For the line shall continue to blur and the beasts will not gnash at their fearsome bits now that they smell the meat.
The graceful reader will be encouraged that the staff here have not been idle in their seclusion. Apocalypse Popsicle took part in a couple of group shows this summer. This early summer AP had several pieces in Dragatomi’s Not Vinyl show. Dragatomi is located in Sacramento, CA and the Not Vinyl show focused on the emerging DIY toy scene. Artwork on display was in a variety of mediums: resin, paper, clay, metal, cardboard, etc. There are pics of my stuff from the Not Vinyl show a couple of posts down from this one and on the flickr page.
The ending of the season was capped by the Toxic Catalyst show at Super7 in San Francisco, CA. This was another show focusing on the emerging DIY scene, but it leaned heavily towards the homemade resin and mold making aspect of DIY making toys. The show was put on by the MonstreHero guys, Cliff & Sean. Thanks for putting me in the Toxic Catalyst group! This show was awesome and I really have to thank Super7 and Skullbrain for their continued support and inspiration. Here’s a pic or two from that show:
On a more personal note-
The top picture in the post is of me at my engagement party. My girlfriend and I are finally taking the plunge. Who knew 7 years of dating would lead to marriage?
HALLOWEEN TOYS COMING TOMORROW
