Tomorrow, Riverside-based artist Jeff Soto unveils his latest print on the Prints on Wood website at noon. Seeing Jeff paint and hearing him speaking about his work during POW WOW was a real highlight for me. Turns out this new print was inspired by Jeff’s time in Hawaii during that event.

You could say that Tone Tank’s new custom action figure, FIST HOMBRE, is a real knucklehead, and that wouldn’t be inaccurate at all. It’s his first full resin figure, meaning he cast each piece himself. Limited to 100pcs, and available at the Scumlife Store. Put your fists up!
