I just realized that it's been a long, long time since I've worked on anything with this many pointy teeth. Thank goodness for ToyQube and their Sharky vinyl toy. Since ToyQube has lifted the embargo on showing art and custom toys for it's 4th Anniversary Party and Sharky Show at the Sullivan Room in NYC on August 15th, I am now free to let my Shiny friend free on the world.

And he is shiny. Sparkly too, even though you need to see him in person to really appreciate the shimmering. In my personal life, I'm not a real big fan of gold (the color, I mean. I adore the element. Feel free to send me as much real gold as your heart desires). Recently, however, I've come into possession of a plethora of sharkly, shiny, luminescent, and just plain gold papers. And suddenly I feel the urge to use them. Could I be entering my "gold period"?

I can't make the show (not until someone works out economical teleportation technology), but that's no reason for all y'all not to have a great time. If you want to see some of the amazing custom Sharky vinyl toys, I highly recommend going to the Kidrobot forums.
