February 8th marks the commencement of ‘Dark Invasion’, as an eclectic mix of creatures descends upon Los Angeles’ TOY ART GALLERY (TAG).

Galaxy People will be joining a decidedly alien 3 week occupation alongside Devil’s Head Prod, Guumon, Mutant Vinyl Hardcore, Paul Kaiju and Scarecrowoven.  Expect limited runs, one-offs, toy debuts and old friends, this monsterous assault will not be one soon forgot.

ILANENA 10th Anniversary Dai Kaiju Card Monsters Custom Toy Show kicks off tomorrow at the Alternative Cafe in Nakano (8th February 2011).  Over 24 national and international artists are partaking in this exhibition, combining Ilanena’s trio of kaiju with their own imaginations to create some truly mind-blowing customs. I got a preview of some of the sets  at Wonderfestival over the weekend, and there are some really amazing works in this show.

It’s going to be a definite must-see if you are anywhere near Tokyo over the next week and a half.

Here are the Galaxy People entries,

My most productive sketching time seems to be between Chigasaki and Fujisawa on the Tokaido line, with aliens drawn on receipts and on the bottom of crossword puzzles. The sketches are usually finished waaay before the crosswords are. Here are a few of those little rushed drawings, showing the next push in the Galaxy People line: the villains
