Monsters in Flogged Magazine!

Hey check it out, Monster Factory was featured in this months issue of Flogged Magazine! I love this magazine, also known as 'The Designers Recovery Magazine'. They asked us to submit examples of our prototype monsters that never made it to production, and then to show how we recovered from said rejects. We submitted three images of some of our most notorious rejects, who still hang out around the studio, reminding of us of where not to go again. So let me introduce you to Tino, Dwight and Terry.
Tino, a cross between a monster and every unpleasant animal in the world.
Dwight, who looks surprisingly better in the photo than in real life, but trust us something just doesn't work with this guy.

Terry, should not be seen in public!

Edward and Murphy

Edward and Murphy are a heroic duo who made their classy debut at the SDCC in 2008. These limited edition monsters are available exclusively through Toy Tokyo and the Monster Factory.

Murphy likes to weigh all options before making a decision. It takes him forever to order at restaurants.

Edward has a problem with authority and an unnatural ability of retaining trivial information.
Format Monster!

Back in September, Format Magazine released their new Monster Factory designed mascot, Clive. He's kinda like Colin's street-wise cousin.

We love the way he turned out! Check it out at Format Magazine!

Zombie Monsters!
These monsters are for a show at Gallery1988 San Francisco called Monster Art Rally. It opens on October 10th.

Yesterday was the opening of Crazy for Cult 2, a cult movie themed group show at Gallery1988 in Los Angeles. We took part, creating the Monster Factory's version of Walter, Donny and the Dude from Big Lebowski. The opening night reception was hosted by Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier (of Jay and Silent Bob fame) and it sounds like it was a big success. We'll have to make it down next year for Crazy for Cult 3.

Well it's been a while, but everyone's favourite pickle with an axe to grind is back. We've just posted two new Pickley videos: 'The Internets' and 'The Olympics'. They can be found on Ponymath.com, our new website dedicated to our sketchy video creations. Up next week is the debut of an animated series - Sea Dog. It's... weird.
