Link roundup

1. Ted Nugent paper doll.

2. Massive homeless encampment on Oahu.

3. I love Q&As about toy manufacturing:

Can you tell us why the SDCC Plastic Man’s stretchy arms are all one solid color? Why couldn’t his hands be flesh colored?

Good question! When you do a stretch accessory, it is not possible to do it in two colors. We looked into painting the hands flesh color, but the paint would chip off as it stretched. In this case the colors are limited by the action feature of the toy, not a design choice.
4. Chris Samnee is giving away a Thor sketch.

*Buy sketch cards at eBay.
