Hang around with Yosiell Lorenzo's Secret Keepers photo
Hang around with Yosiell Lorenzo's Secret Keepers
by Brian Szabelski

We've gotten some news from Yosiell Lorenzo about his newest Sicklings piece, the Sicklings Secret Keepers. Instead of being a small figure, these are 3-inch-by-5-inch Sickling resin faces mounted on a wooden plaque, painted to look weathered and worn.

Of course, that means they're meant to be hung on the wall, but what about those keyholes? Well, they're secret keepers, after all. There's mini-envelopes on the back for you to write your secrets down on and store then under the Secret Keeper on the wall. Pretty creative, isn't it?

If you want one, they've just released in Yosiell's shop for US$45 including shipping (US$55 overseas due to shipping costs). Go get 'em if you're interested: there's only 10 of them!

DesignerCon 2012: doubleparlour

The creations of doubleparlour are really ones you'll love ... or hate. They aren't the cuddliest sculptures in the world, and for some, they might be the stuff of nightmares. But to me, there's something interesting about se...

Stop-animation short film
Stop-animation short film "The Maker" now viewable online
by Brian Szabelski

A while back, you probably remember hearing that Amanda Spayd's critters would be the stars of a stop-motion animation film called The Maker. Well, great news: you can now watch the entire 5:30 award-winning short film online!

Directed by Christopher Kezelos (who also directed another stop-motion film, Zero) and produced by both Christoper and Christine Kezelos, The Maker is about a creature in a race against time to make the most important thing ever. The work here is just ... wow. Is "impeccable" the right word to describe it? If not, then "awesome" will have to do. So sit back and enjoy a little morning treat.

Oh, and if you like it, be sure to go vote for it in The Wrap's ShortList Festival. You can also check out a ton of behind-the-scenes stuff on their Facebook page.

Patient No. 6's newest toy hates people photo
Patient No. 6's newest toy hates people
by Brian Szabelski

Patient No.6 is back with a new character, a fellow known as I Hate People. Maybe it's because that's what it says on the back of his head? In any case, the one-horned fellow carries a first aid kit in his left hand and is painted in a red and grayscale color palette ... but something tells me he's not here to administer first aid to folks.

I Hate People is available at Patient No. 6's shop right now for US$76; for that price, you also get a medical history (which has the buyer's name on it as a bonus) and free shipping. Additionally, you can pick up Patient No. 6's previously announced releases in his shop, too.
