Mandrake Pins

Mayday is a magical time.
A liminal time.
A dangerous time!
On this night the Mandrake roots scramble free of the soft earth.
And dance in the light of the first moon of Spring.
They sing their unearthly, piercing songs,
And cavort in wild circles in the twilight.
To hear them brings madness.
To spy them brings doom!
Beware on your nocturnal ramblings!
Less you witness things not easily un-seen.

A new series of Mandrake Enamelled Pins from The Art Pin Collection launch this Mayday from Rotofugi in the USA, and from The Mechtorian Emporium in the UK.

Four versions are available at launch:
Brass & Greens, Brass and Yellows, Copper and Reds, Steel and Purple.
Each pin is 1.5″ tall and has two fasteners. Each comes carded.

Penultimate Badge

The third Ed Geers badge is available on my online shop NOW.

This is the penultimate Mechtorian Badge of the month.
The next one (September) will make one years worth.
I intend to make more badges of characters in this same style but no longer on a monthly basis.
They will probably be show exclusives or random event type releases..

I am pleased so many of you have liked them enough to collect the set so far..
This is not the end. They will just become a lot less regular from now on.
