On October 19, Monkeyhouse Toys presents “Story Time Group Show” featuring original works by over 40 artists who created an original character they would have loved to watch on TV or read about in a book when growing up. Each piece is accompanied by a short story written by the artist.
Here is a sneak preview of Leslie Levings’ piece for the show. It looks like that blue Beastlie is telling an epic story!
“Story Time Group Show” opens on October 19 with a family-friendly exhibition from 5-8pm. Free Bleenkies character buttons and coloring pages will be available while supplies last!
Today is my birthday, and I just received the best birthday drawing!! I was celebrating my birthday weekend with friends, and one of them showed me a cute drawing she’d been working on. So I requested a Beastlie drawing… with me riding on the Beastlie… and carrying a sword. I may have requested rainbow lasers coming out of my eyes, but I was a little drunk so I don’t remember. Anyway this is what she drew and it is the best ever!! Thanks, Katie!!
Rodger surprised me with this trio of Beastlies over the weekend. The one in the middle is from Supah Pop-Up a few weeks ago, and he conspired with my friend Grace to buy it without me noticing. And I had really wanted that one, too! I love my new little friends.
Thanks to Grace, now I have the perfect Beastlie accessory that can go with any outfit!
I also received a Fuji Instax Mini 8 over the weekend, and Maulkie the Beastlie joined me for a few test shots. As you can see, I’m having a very Beastlies birthday week!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by Supah Pop-Up last night at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland! Everyone had a great time, and the artists appreciated all the support they received from fans, both old and new. (If you’re on Vine, find me Supahcute and Orbital Ox to see a few clips from the evening.)
Vanessa also created these resin monster pins and monster magnets. These will be available for purchase. We’re giving away free goodie bags with purchase, and the first 10 bags will include one of Vanessa’s resin monster magnets.
