Been a bit slack...

I've been very busy of late so I've had few chances to update the blog. JJ has been highlighting some of the work that he will be selling on his upcoming online gallery and I've managed to post a few messages about the forthcoming Bird God figures. But other than that there's not been much. So here's what's been happening.

We are in the process of vacating our office. We have worked from this building (as Amos and Silas) for the past 9 years so it will be missed. Having said that we've had no heating all winter so maybe it won't be missed quite so much. In future we will work from our respective homes and come together for Amos projects.

James has been tidying up the sculpts and the packaging for our first licensed figures which will be produced through US based Strangeco. We have been concentrating more on licensed products as this frees us up to be more creative (in theory). More on this particular product soon.

Our guys in Japan have been busy too and they will soon release some more tees, mugs and a couple of other special items. We will import some of these for the online store. Never cheap but beautifully produced.

This summer we will release the mother of all collaborative products to celebrate the 10 years that we have been making toys (in one guise or another). Again, more on this soon.

I've just finished working on another Amos book that will also be released this summer. I've mentioned this book on earlier posts. Wonder Women of America is a photographic study of women who dress in costume at Comic-Con. I worked with Silas collaborators Ruth Wiggins (photography) and Rob Green (design) and I'm really happy with how it looks. It's pretty colourful and there's some great material. Should be going to print in the next few weeks. Again...more soon.

And if you are still reading, we will have another 10 year anniversary special at the end of the year. I've said too much already.

So, we may be a bit quiet. But we are busy. I'll make sure I post more in the coming weeks.

Until then...
