The latest Xmoor Studio news:

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Welcome everyone to our first Xmoor News update of the year.
Xmoor Studios has been low key on the information sites as Eric and I have been working tirelessly to develop our Intellectual Properties and take the next steps towards getting a bigger audience to embrace our books. Xmoor Studios will be at this February’s New York Comic Con (Feb. 6 - 8), at BOOTH # 948, sharing a space with our traveling partner the fantastic illustrator Steven Harris creator of the BrotherHood of the Fringe, and artist for countless fan fave books for Marvel, DC, Image and other publishers. We will also be there with our new partners in crime Shimmer Media who are developing a sensational teaser trailer for GALTOW using 3d CGI effects. Here’s a taste of what will be seen at the show:

We will also debut The GALTOW trade edition at the show… Issues #1 & #2 have been colored and given a whole new attitude. We have also included issues #3 and the unreleased GALTOW #4, along with some under goodies and pinups:

There is so much more going on and Eric and I will be updating everyone very soon on those news fronts but for now look, enjoy and hope to see some of you at the show!

New York Comic Con is only weeks away. With that in mind Carnival Cartoons will be releasing the next colorway for their Pierce & Nathan set of Carney curiosities. The Carnival Cartoons PURPLE exclusive will be limited to just 100 PCS!!! Notice the logo on Pierces shirt... a combination of skulls, elephants, & flames! In case you haven't noticed each colorway will have a unique logo on the front of Pierce's shirt & the back of Nathan's. Pierce comes complete with actual piercings! Carnival Cartoons will also be offering quite an array of other items you'll want to get your hands on including... skate decks, prints, plush, & resin.
Not only that, but they will also be having a few friends stopping through to do signings!!! So be sure to stop through Booth #964, you're not gonna want to miss this.
Purple Pierce & Nathan is the second color release of the figure & will be available at Comic Con. If you are interested in the other Carney characters to complete your set (Buzz and Harriet) please contact DKE Toys ( to place your order.
"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 putt-putt 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!"
Pierce stands aprox. 5.5" tall while Nathan stands at 4"
Set will come complete w/ signed mini print!

Just want to say a big thanks to Jared Deal and Garnet Syberg Olsen for letting me sculpt up their exciting toy line. I hope we do a few more of these awesome figures!!!

I did this sculpt a while back for Charlie and was wondering what he had in mind for it. So now we know. So come on folks let's help Charlie get his toy made!!! When Charlie gives me the green light I'll post more images of the Space Monkey (and yeah that banana accessory can be removed from the curled tail...heh...) Can't wait to get a few more shots of that paint master myself - great job Charlie!
