Rotofugi Toy Store
& Gallery Opening in Chicago

Create a Creature
by Design" Toy Art Exhibit
Spasmodica will be featured in the "Characters
by Design" Toy Art Exhibit at Gray
Matters Gallery in Dallas. The show, curated
by Jason Cohen, opens July 7, 2004 and runs until
August 7, 2004. Both nationally known and local
artists will participate. The gallery is located
at 113 N. Haskell Ave.
A few familiar Spasmodica creatures will be on
display, as well as a trio of new, extra large,
specially created characters named Meouch, Octofred's
Cousin and Smoosh.
The show is being described as "an investigation
into the various ways that artists have come to
use the actual, physical form of toys to describe
their intentions and to also relive some of the
magic and wonder that was always present with
the arrival of a new toy."
The exhibit's opening reception is scheduled
for Saturday, July 10, 2004 from 7-10 pm. I plan
to be there, so please say "hello" if
you're able to attend.

is Coming! Let's Party!
It's about damn time. Chicago's very own collectible
toy store and gallery, Rotofugi,
will be opening its doors this July 2004. This
fine establishment where you should spend lots
of money is located at 1953 W. Chicago Ave. in
the East Village neighborhood of Chi-town. They'll
be carrying lots of in-demand and hard-to-comeby
character toy lines. And yes, Spasmodica will
be stocked on their shelves too. Hooray! But wait.
There's more ...
You're invited to attend Rotofugi's Grand Opening
Party slated for Friday, July 30, 2004 at 7 pm.

pm. This travelling art exhibit consists of cool
monkey toys customized by artists from around
the world. Invite everyone you know to attend
and we hope to see you there!
