Stitches and Glue- May News‏

It's a bit a while since we mentioned any news from the Monster Workshop HQ, but as usual there's been loads going on. Their latest creation is a new bespoke handmade monster named Dulo. This is the most sophisticated designer plush from Monster Workshop to date. It has fully posable head and armatured tail/arms, and is limited to three pieces which include a limited print of the initial character sketch. He and many other new works, will be featuring at the fast approaching, Open Studio event, at Cockpit Arts in Holborn 10-12 of June.
Here's Duol's backstory:

'This handsome fellow was found in great distress, strung up in a tree and being tormented. Luckily for Dulo a young girl came to his rescue and scared off his captors. From the outside Dulo may appear to be a brute, but beneath the fur and startling appearance he is a sensitive and loving monster, looking for an equally loving home.'

Godmachine's Tempus by Vannen!

On May 5th, Vannen rolls out Tempus, a pulse-raising artist watch by the UK's dark lord of design, Godmachine. Like the vibrant horror and fantasy graphics Godmachine is known for, his watch comes alive with its band of bones and blood-red, twisted, snakelike entrails. Tempus features original art designed by Godmachine specifically for the watch. Its band encases your wrist in a double-down innards-on-skin sandwich, and the crystal is printed in clear matte ink with Godmachine's own esoteric iconography. Underneath these symbols, and cloaked in further viscera, the hands of the watch tick by. But as the title,Tempus, implies: time is fleeting... Tempus is limited to 150 pieces for $85 each. All watches come with packaging that's been signed and numbered by Godmachine. For a bit of mystery, 10 Tempus watches have been anointed with a special silver ink overlay on the crystal. In keeping with the cryptic theme of the release, each watch is packaged in a black body bag with a limited edition Godmachine sticker. Don't miss out on Tempus. Get yours tomorrow at

French Lowrider by Alëxone‏

Based on one of his painting (a tribute to his old Citroën BX), the French Lowrider is an amazing piece of vinyl by Alëxone Dizac, with an unusual visual treatment, far away from everything ever released in the Toy's World. Behind the wheel of this surreal car sits a masked penguin, iconic character from Alexone's world. This driver is fully equipped with two bendable arms (plus an extra one on the removable cap) holding spraycans. As he can't really drive with busy hands, he can still count on his 5 smaller co-pilots penguins. Sculpted by Julien Moreau and produced by Artoyz Originals, the French Lowrider is the 1st vinyl toy ever released by Alexone. The figure is 9'' wide and 6'' high. For his new exhibition (from May 5th to June 11th) at Galerie L.J. in Paris "Y a pas photo", this very limited version (150 pieces) will be released and available as pre-order.
