Mike Diana was put in jail for his artwork that he put in a comic book...
This happened in America.
He was put on trail and was found guilty of “artistic obscenity”. He was then jailed for his artwork.
It’s pretty appalling what they did to him. There is a documentary coming out soon about the whole ordeal.
I’ve been a big fan of Mikes for a long time now. Now getting to collaborate with him on this project has been a totally awesome experience.
It speaks to underground comics enthusiasts, toy collectors, and anyone who believes in their first amendment rights. Plus, you know, Glow in the Dark Brain...

This dolls and their accessories are made with recycled materials. The idea started when I realized that after the workshops (that I give), there was a lot of fabric scraps and also small cardboard pieces left. So, I realized that I could use the cardboard for making a structure for some pieces, like the doll's head. To make it consistent I fill it with the fabric scraps and the small cardboard pieces left. It worked.
Now I almost don't produce waste in my workshop.
As I'm also aware not to produce other kind of waste, like in the kitchen. I found that I could use the empty matchboxes for making little structures, like this Little Dark Book.
