Random Goodies

-Jibba Jabba-

-Blank Flipbooks at Staples-
That's right. Sharpen your animation timing without the use of a Lunchbox. On the subway, in the elevator, at a wedding...

-Custom Toy Lab-
This seems to be pretty good idea: Custom Toy Lab: Custom Designer Vinyl Toys, Paper Toys & Plush Toys.
CustomToyLab.com has been created to support all artists involved in the custom toy scene. The site is created by Tahir and Andy as a way for people to view all the great custom toys in one place. To celebrate the launch we are giving away a custom set of ZLIKS created by Bil BetsOvic. To enter the competition all you need to do is lave a comment on this post.

All artists are invited to get involved and showcase their toy customizing and creating talents. Custom toys can range from custom vinyl toys, hand made plush toys, designer paper toys or any other kind of DIY toy.
The blog is new: it started in February. However, there are tons of cool toys to see. Even if you aren't planning to buy anything now, it's a good place to discover new artists, like Mr Jones from Lunartik that created the lovely little fellow below, and rate the works you enjoyed. Don't miss their Paper Toys category with links to two free models to download.
