Hot Toys Action Figures Process Video

We don’t know about you, but we think Hot Toys make the most amazing action figures and it’s really awesome to see part of the process of how they’re made.

My Beavory DIY Skateboard Project Inspired By My Adventures In California


I had always been fascinated about murals and DIY projects, and constantly tracking artists and trends around the world. I love the impact my art has on its environment. When you paint, you create a microcosms where people step inside, wonder and link with your art. If you do it right, your artwork becomes the canvas for other people’s life and experiences.

I wanted to share my new project Dylan’s skateboard. I was inspired by my recent adventures around sunny California (which is also the place we call home for the past 10 month) . Traveling and going out of my comfort zone is always a great thing for an artist!

My hero carrying my message to the world is Dylan the turtle (which is one of my favorite characters of Beavory and also considered to be a world traveler). I would like to inspire kids world wide to believe in the importance of enjoying the ride and living the moment!
Beavory art is playful, colorful and fun for all ages, it blends perfectly in urban places and nature and people simply love it.

The Little Chimp 3D Statuette


We’re slowly working our way towards offering a Little Chimp award to a deserving recipient. This is the award! Isn’t he cool. There still lots of work to do and we need to select someone to win it, but in the meantime we wanted to share this nifty photo of him with you. The 3D modelling was done by the talented Metin Seven and it was printed by Shapeways.
