This past Saturday we headed down to The Piazza at Schmidt’s, here in Philadelphia, because they were showing Twilight on their huge outdoor screen and some of the stars were there signing autographs!!!!! As exciting as that sounds, it is unfortunately a total lie. Although lucky for all of the thirteen year old girls in the area, that actually was happening while we were there. What team are you on?
The REAL reason we were down there was for the Jinxed Custom Toy2R Qee Show that was happening at Jinxed/Toothless Cat Gallery. Mike “Supermodel”, from Jinxed had his usual weekend BBQ going on right outside the shop and inside were cool PBR’s and almost 2 dozen Qee’s that had been painted, mummified, sculpted over…almost anything you can name, these artists did it to make their Qee. Don’t know what a Qee (pronounced, KEY) is? Much like the more widely known, Munny, it is a blank vinyl figure that gives the owner room to get creative with it and truly make it their own. One of the Qee’s even had Velcro mustache’s that were interchangeable and provided viewers with felt to make their own. There was a good vibe throughout the show, and although the gallery never got super packed at any one given time, there was a constant flow of people the entire night checking out everyone’s work.
As far as I know, a few of these pieces did sell that night, but if you see something that you are interested in, drop us a line and we can get you in touch with the artist and see if it is still available or not.
