Shawn Smith, founder of Shawnimals, was awesome enough to do an interview with Albotas after a grueling signing session at NYCC 2012. Hit the link to read about the origins of NinjaTown, the art of plush, and Shawn’s days of writing for EGM.
I snagged a blue mini canvas painted by Shawnimal while I was in NYC a few weeks ago. Now fans can buy one-off canvases, paintings, drawings, and custom vinyls from MyPlasticHeart’s web store. A lot of the stuff is in the $20-$30 range - a steal for customs from the Shawnimal himself.
If you’ve always wanted a leopard print Pocket Pork Dumpling, today is your day. Shawnimals now offers blank versions of their recently released vinyl toy. There are two kinds - one with eyes and one without. I picked one up at MyPlasticHeart over the weekend (along with a mini canvas from Shawnimal himself) and they’re pretty darn nice. Time to paint it like a Dragon Quest slime.
