As the crafter notes: “I draw inspiration for my designs from varied sources, like a few long-adored antiques, exotic flowering plants and even the manner in which color projects personality”.

Chris Brett is a Toronto based mixed media artist with a truly rich and fresh portfolio. It’s easy to see how much urban art and especially graffiti has influenced his work.

As I read in his site: “Chris’ work has a slightly goofy and jaded sense of humor; a laugh to keep from crying sense of mania in rich color and dark tones. A reaction to the good & bad things that life can sometimes hand you.”

Take a look at his delicious spray can art! How original is that?!!

Jordo and Marcos are the 2 talented toy designers behind Space Boy Robot! Unique, handmade and most importantly, filled with inspiring imagination and creativity, these robot characters should really be considered art objects!

As the designers note: “Each robot contains a secret compartment that is usually unnoticed by most folks. The robot can be used to store: money, engagement rings, tiny pictures, wishes, paper clips, keys, Xanax, rocks, matches, glitter, beads, teeth, lint, bolts and screws, girls’ phone numbers, various shiny objects, newspaper clippings, a locket of hair from that girl you’ve been secretly stalking, a lucky 4 leaf clover, a shower cap from a posh hotel and much much more!”

Rush to their shop to get your own space boy robot or go for their flickr album and be amazed by even more creations!
