We've been up a lot of late nights planning for NYCC, and after getting ready to post about this weeks 'Featured Artists' I realized that I never wrote up anything for last weeks artists. So Miri stepped up and wrote up some great stuff for last weeks artists, we'll start fresh with some new artists on Monday. For those unaware, each week we pick some artists we like who also happen to have some stuff going on this week that we think you should know about. Whether it's a new release, upcoming show, or just some cool stuff they're recently made. Anyway, on to our featured artists
With a string of new toys this summer, Fonzo back in May, Wooper Looper just a couple of weeks ago, and the Cavey he made with A Little Stranger, the man has been keeping very busy. He even handmade 4 Wooper Looper plashes that were sold out instantly. His newest vinyl creation Monster Toytem, is a variation of the wooden version he made for the Winter Salon show at Stranger Factory, with interchangeable pieces and standing about 14" tall when assembled. You can keep on the lookout for those this month, and if you're lucky enough to be hitting DesignerCon you'll be able to get your hands on the Exclusive Grey variant. Also Keep and eye out for Bernie, his contribution to the Nosellots Super Show Shindig held at Screaming Sky gallery this weekend. You can check out more of Gary's work at haminals.blogspot.com and follow him at @GaryGepetto.
If you don't know him yet, you certainly will! Chauskoskis, aka Walter Jacott, is nominated for Artist of the Year in this year's Designer Toy Awards, his first production Dunny titled 'Birro the Clown' from Kidrobot is way sold out, but what we really love him for, are his customs. His notable recent pieces are his custom Dude which he did for their Dudebox Launch Party in London and can still be purchased in the Dudebox Shop and his custom Fonzo Alfonzo Weismuller which he did for the Fonzo Custom Show at Freak Store and has since found a good home. You can check out more of Chauskoskis's work at walterjacott.blogspot.com and follow him at @chauskoskis.
I've been following Anarkitty for a little while now. Her luminous ladies are simultaneously brooding, seductive, and sweetly charming. I had the pleasure of seeing one of her acrylics up close and personal at last night's truly crazy opening of Crazy 4 Cult NYC. She also recently had pieces at other Gallery 1988 shows including There's Always Money in the Banana Stand and Memes. She recently released another print with Fine Grime Gallery which you can purchase on the cheap(ish) here: finegrime.co.uk.

Another treat I got on our trip to NYC yesterday is stopping by Myplasticheart for some light shopping and to take in the beautiful pieces in their latest show Signs of the Apocalypse curated by none other than Lou Pimentel. Just before this at Myplasticheart, you may have caught his show with Leontine Greenberg called Unnatural Selection. With works in a huge variety of mediums, you are sure to find original art to suit your taste. You can see lots of great pieces on his site lou-pimentel.com and you can follow @loupimental for updates on his many ongoing projects.
