Rush Hour

I've started a sister-site to Little People called Inner City Snail, utilising the humble snail shell as a medium for 'art'. No snails were harmed, they just had their homes vandalised.

I am also excited to announce that a Little People book will be out soon, titled 'Little People in the City - The street art of Slinkachu'. It will be a chunky little hardcover packed full of my photographs from this site over the past two years, shots that have appeared in various magazines and exhibitions and also a lot of new unseen stuff. It will be published through Boxtree and will be out on the 5th of September at all good bookstores (and some rubbish ones). A pre-order page is up on amazon now, if you can't wait for the remainder bin. And its only £10! What are they thinking?! (No, seriously, what are they thinking?! I had dreams of a yacht...)

Custom Mellow

An art collector named Nick contacted to me some time a go to request a custom vinyl toy, I said yes without even to know what toy he wanted me to customize, actually also he wasn't sure by then, yet. A little later I received the Mellow figure designed by Christopher Lee. And an email from the same guy, he thought this figure would be a perfect canvas for my characters, so I did it and this is the result, I'm very pleased with the result and really like to work in 3D object.
Who knows? Maybe this is the beginning of a new line of vinyl toys :) Ha! Why not?

Thanks Nick for pushing me out in making this!
