Carnival Cartoons Pierce and Nathan exclusive colorway for the Vinyl Toy Network ( revealed!!! This first colorway of the dynamic duo will be limited to 50 pieces and is exclusive to 3D Retro.

The VTN show will be on Dec. 6th and 7th (Sat and Sun.) at the Pasadena Convention Center out in California. More colorways coming soon...I totally enjoyed sculpting these guys up for Jared and Garnet.

The Carnival Cartoons vinyl toy family just got a little bigger!!! From the exclusive Proto - Monday post up on Vinyl Pulse:

"Pierce and Dogboy are the Carney family mischief makers! Pierce is the quintessential bratty younger brother, and Dogboy is Pierce's pal, a loving pet, and... a fur covered wingman! Pierce relishes his gross-out gig as "The Human Pincushion" in the family sideshow act. (He's got more holes than a boardwalk put-put course). When Dogboy isn't doing double duty as the family's household hound, and Pierce's partner in crime, he wows the crowds at Barker's sideshow with his furry face and outrageous animal antics!"

I really enjoy translating Jared Deal's 2D art to 3D sculptural form - the guy's got his own style and it's a nice challenge to bring them to life. I've seen his colorways for these new guys and they're quite stunning.

Going Under Construction Soon...

Hey all -
the Goldmane Entertainment website will be going under the knife real soon. Time to revamp and rebuild to the new version 2.0!!! Some of you may have noticed some changes already (some buttons in the site have been deactivated) and a brand spanking new division has opened up. I'll have a lot of new projects to put up and press releases to go out when everything is up to speed. There will be some good news dropping soon for one of the other divisions as well but I can't say much about that right now.

I also wanted to thank all of you who stopped by to take a gander and keep an eye on what I've been up to (and ran the site hits up past 50 thou). I'll be back soon with a all new look - so enjoy the site as is before we go under construction.

Thank you all...
