Joe Ledbetter – Mini Chaos Bunnies…!
JLed is such a tease, but oh how sweet the anticipation is. ‘Mini Chaos is coming’. Yup. Joe is working on a mini-fig series featuring Mr. Bunny with The Loyal Subjects, not sure on the exact title… maybe ‘Mini Chaos’ or… On timing, we’re hearing soon but not that soon (how’s that for cryptic?). If you loved the larger Chaos Bunnies, you’re already saving money for these, and rightfully so. I suspect we’ll hear more about this project shortly.
‘Heroes of the Block’ @ Fresthetic (10.10)
If you’re going to be in NYC for NYCC, you’ll definitely want to save some time on Thursday night (10.10) for the ‘Heroes of the Block’ group art show @ fresthetic in Brooklyn. The show will feature work from some of your favorite artists from NYC and other spots including Adrian ‘Viajero’ Roman, Josh Taylor, kaNO, Kelly Denato and Lou Pimentel. Drop by after NYCC closes to see what they’ve dreamt up. Btw, if fresthetic sounds familiar, that might be because kaNO had a solo there last year during NYCC or because you’re up on Brooklyn cool.
‘Heroes of the Block’
Opening: Thursday, October 10th 2013 (7 – 10 PM)
552 Grand St.

Cameron Tiede’s new ‘Wood Candy Workshop’
Many of you will remember Cameron Tiede. He was active as an LA-based artist both with gallery shows, customs, a line of vinyl toys, and several limited-edition wood releases including his awesome Blooming Death. For the past several years he’s taken a bit of a hiatus while continuing to grow his woodworking skills, add yet more power tools to his studio in Flowermound, Teaxs, and develop a new, refined aesthetic. The result is his ‘Wood Candy Workshop’.
With Wood Candy Workshop Cameron will be focusing on creating and producing limited-edition design objects in premium hardwoods. And yes, that includes a few toys. First up in fact is Chester, a 5.25” wood figure made of 17 individually cut pieces of Walnut, Cherry, Maple and Padauk. Shown in the teaser after the jump, Chester will debut in a natural wood edition, hand-rubbed in 100% pure Tung oil and waxed with a special natural bees wax. Look for more information soon on Wood Candy Workshop and Chester, which will be released in late October. In the mean time, head on over to woodcandyworkshop.com to join the mailing list to receive the latest news on releases as well as a free shipping coupon for use when purchasing Chester.
