The Micheal Lau (sometimes known as Crazy Smiles) Garden(palm)er collection continues. You may remember last installment from this past Spring, created in conjunction with How2Work toys.

Maverick Drinks is ready for you to hit the books, and the sauce, once again.

"The Longer You Last" skull-cast series from Hedi Xandt

Artist, graphic designer and all-around creative force Hedi Xandt has bumped up the price tag on this puzzle box by giving our good friend Pinhead from Clive Barker’s Hellraiser series a bit of the Midas touch. While die-casting objects, not excluding the human skull, into golden hues seems to be a recurring motif in the artist’s work, what […]
