Skwak launches SNEAKYMOB lifestyle boutiques in China



I love everything French artist Skwak does. So much I have created a Skwak tag on this blog. I bought several of his toys and plushes, I downloaded his app on my iPhone, but I’m still looking for the umbrella (I don’t use umbrella but this one I might). From Jeremy Brautman’s Blog ‘Jeremyriad’ (including picture below): ... More
Goldorus, Orus, Malus, Bonass… Mist ‘The Infamous’ is in da house!



The first time I mentioned Mist on this blog was almost 2 years ago in the post: Yes, I’m a vinyl fetishist… vinyl toys actually. I was introducing those of you who didn’t know yet about vinyl toys, to the artists I appreciate the most. I later dedicated a post to Fafi and her Fafinettes (Irina’s still missing, by the way…), Mars-1 + ... More
Original Fake Kaws Cat Teeth Bank against global crisis



French Prime Minister François Fillon said last week: “France has moved into an official recession“, and “The world was is on the edge of the abyss“. The U.S and major European countries are spending billions to save the banks from bankruptcy and governments desperately try to reassure their clients. Not to mention the billions of ... More
Skwak’s Maniac and Koogai are really ‘too much’



A year ago, in my post: Yes, I’m a vinyl fetishist… vinyl toys actually, I briefly mentioned Skwak and his Maniac Figure produced last year by MINDstyle; I think it is time to talk about it again. Skwak is one of the many great french artists like Fafi and her Fafinettes, Rolito, KOA, Miss Van, 123Klan, Run, Superdeux, Tilt or Mist (his Goldorus is ... More
Tim Tsui and Alice Chan at the Galeries Lafayette (Paris)



First of all I am sorry I didn’t answer yet to your questions but I received A LOT more than expected. So please indulge me some more days 😉 Yesterday I was walking on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris, I had an important meeting nearby. I was in a hurry as I was stuck in a traffic jam… I went by the Galeries Lafayette and then something caught my ... More
Mars-1 Observer Seen and Delta Inc. have landed



Finally! The new Mars-1 Observer 6 inches tall vinyl figure designed by painter and sculptor Mars-1 (Mario Martinez) from San Francisco and edited by STRANGEco, has been delivered yesterday. I already have several vinyl figures from this artist: Mars-1 Observer Green, Red, Gray, Black and Zoltron Edition, and the set counts now two others: Mars-1 Observer ... More
Fafinettes: Jeanette and Claude, but still no Irina…



A quick post about my new toys. I just received (better late than never…) 2 new vinyl Fafinettes, Jeanette and Claude. They are nearly 8 inches tall (19 cm approximately) and the figures are exact creations from graffiti artist Fafi‘s sketches. The toys have been produced by adFunture Workshop, in a limited edition of 2000 pieces. I already have ... More
From sgraffiti to graffiti, from Cauchie to Seen

I was first impressed by graffiti, then by sgraffiti. A pun that sums up my first approach with decorative Art. Graffiti Art is now worldwide known but it’s in the mid-1980s I had my first graffiti experience. I remember French artists like Lokiss or Bando, it was a great era even if graffiti were then only regarded like vandalism; at the same time, ... More
My vintage orange desk and a big Sama sticker



The 1930s were a great time for movies and design, as well as the 1950s and the 1970s. I have several furniture and objects from the Seventies, reminding me when I was a kid (along with Abba, Star Wars, flares pants…). Everything was ‘designed’, from the Maruman table cigarettes lighter (made in Japan) to the ‘Boby’ storage ... More
Yes, I’m a vinyl fetishist… vinyl toys actually.



Urban vinyl toys, vinyl figures, designer toys; all these terms are used to describe toys and other collectibles (plastic or vinyl) you might have already seen somewhere. When I published my first Sama drawings on the Internet, back in 1999, I was working on a 3D model of the Sama Water Tank, made with clay. The result was approximate but my Sama went to ... More
