Just wanted to share a prototype of a new pendant designed by Squid, and see what you think. Remember the skull with fez from Tiki Oasis last year? Well, here is the deluxe version that I'm working on right now. I call him the "Mystic Imperial Potentate" version.




And yes, when his eye starts to hang a little too low, you can grab his attention by pulling on the fez tassel!





Fez is actual velvet, and eyeball is real carved coral with some "bloodshot" coloring added. What do you guys think? How do you like your eyeballs - extra droopy or with just a little bit of droop?

Brilliant pendant! Love the lazy eye idea.
Let us know when they are ready. Great design!

Here's another possibility, with cornea added




Which do you like better, cornea or just pupil????

The whole eye concept is creepy, but a great idea!

What the hell are you doing to my skull, dude???


HA! Actually Mo-Eye is now the official producer of Squid pendants and miscellaneous other stuff. His casting and paint work are top-notch. Look for more new stuff in the very near future.

So really...what the hell are you doing to my skull???

The Taboo Island Sweatshop is proud to be producing the creations of Squid. I'm always amazed at what he comes up with and how fast he can get it done.

I've got the kids... er, "natives" working overtime!

Nice stuff, Mo-eye - I've never seen anything quite like it, and the paint job is extremely well done.
