Argonaut Resins 12th designer resin is...

Jelly Bot!!!

I've teamed up with Selina Briggs of The Jelly Empire and her army of Jelly Bot mini resin figurines will be debuting at this years MOCCA festival on April 9th and 10th in NYC. She will have all sorts of Jelly Empire prints, Tshirts, bags, buttons and postcards featuring her art at the show. ***UPDATED*** Selina will be at table # L23***

We will reveal all of the mini Jelly Bot resins in the next few days and there will be GID's (glow in the dark), clear tints, solids, jades, magnetic versions, key chains and a few exclusive painted versions by Selina herself with custom hand made packaging.

There will also be a few surprises included in the lineup BUT you'll have to come to the MOCCA festival to see what that will be. The edition size for the first wave of resin Jelly Bot mini's is estimated at 25 - 30 pieces at the moment.

Pharaoh Hound and Tuttz illustrated book...

In case you missed the ToysRevil post with the updated shot of the Pharaoh Hound in progress (I've actually taken him a bit further since this shot and will post that soon).

I've also been going back and forth with Robert Garrett (Xmoor Studios) on the development of the all new Tuttz illustrated book. Been working on some first stage character design sketches at the moment for all the key players in the Tuttz book. Here's a sneak peek at the growing manual with the story theme phrase and a new colorway of Tuttz that will be an special exclusive down the road - called "EnTombed". We're also still looking over artist portfolio submissions to do the interior illustrations for the book at this time.

Up next - The Jelly Empire! The first new artist rolling with Argonaut Resins this year is Selina Briggs - bringing some "Girl Power" to the world of designer resin. Watch the top banner for a little teaser promo treat starting on Friday...

Tuttz Minis full reveal and drop date!

Yeah, I know - I'm late...but hopefully it will be worth the wait. Here are the 25 Tuttz Minis for Series 1 that will drop Monday March 14th at 9PM EST. in the Argonaut Resins online store. The Tuttz Minis will go for $30 plush shipping. Now pay attention (very important) I'm only allowing 3 Mini's per buyer in this series BUT there some special things hidden in the wave. There are 5 chases, 2 which are glow in the dark and one clear tint with a secret GOLDEN TICKET that will get the uber FREE regular sized clear tint Tuttz to match it. That's right - the bigger Tuttz is absolutely free - so check the images below to see which one that is (I'll reveal that chase only since the freebie matches it)...it's on folks!!!

As the Tuttz Mini release gets closer I thought I'd drop a little update on what will be in the Series 1 line up. I'm trying to add something from all the previous larger Tuttz releases to make the first series fun to collect. There will be 5 chases and a golden ticket hidden in one of those to get something absolutely free!!! More on that soon enough...On another note I have been invited by Carbon Fibre Media to partake in their Canvass 44 event - check it here! Gratitude!!! I will do my best and thank you for including me.

Wondering how big the big Tuttz is? That bad boy is a whopping 8 inches and goes into production soon. I may be debuting a little something something at the Cookies-N-Cream Toy Street event in April. Stay tuned.

Home decor and a shiney new Tuttz art contest!

The beautiful collector images just keep on rolling in and collectors are now getting colorful Tuttz figurines to match the decor of their homes!!! Wow. I have to admit I get a little jealous when I see collectors with more Tuttz resins in their collection than I have. I will do my best to make this year even more fun than last year with more Tuttz and some exciting new characters that will join him shortly. Thank you all for the support and lovely images - makes all the hard work I put into my projects worth every second.

Want to win a FREE Mini blind boxed Tuttz???!!! To get things jumping I have a new art contest sponsored by Jamie over a Kollectible Kulture. Go check it out, download the template HERE on her site and show us what you got!!! The last contest was so awesome with a ton of great entries and the talented winner Rich Page of the UK got more than just a FREE OG Tuttz figurine as a prize. I even thru in a ubre rare day glow pink solid Tuttz for his wife and used his winning design for a limited run Tuttz Tshirt! That's how we do it - innovative and exciting...Who's in?

What to expect...

Here's another teaser for the Tuttz Mini's I'm working on to give everyone some ideas of what to expect in the Series 1 wave of 25 pieces. What to expect...? Everything. I'm also giving a few of the Minis away as gifts to select people who are on my THANK YOU list, and those I wish let know about Tuttz and bring them into his world. These will not be part of the Series 1 wave and are totally separate from that release. The release will be moved back to next week (sorry) so I can do some extra magic on the wave and get it exactly how I want (I keep changing my mind, hey, that happens). When the option of "any possible color way" presents itself it's really easy to get carried away - just because the Mini Tuttz are much smaller than the regular Tuttz they are not any easier to produce. So hang tight - it's going to be some big FUN!!!
