Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

Yeti NakaBUD   Nakanari x Boblbee bag
I got an e-mail from the very creative toy artist Tony Shiau, a.k.a. Nakanari, letting me know about an upcoming exhibit entitled Peanut Butter & Jellyfish beginning on Saturday, October 14th celebrating the opening of Orlando's new design studio Me Llamo Jellyfish. The exhibit will feature work by Kelly Aponte, Nakanari, Dave Quiles and Julius Santiago. Nakanari is the founder and creative director for the new Me Llamo Jellyfish studio (located at 2295 Santa Lucia Street in Kissimmee, Florida) and has some new work, including a nine-inch Yeti NakaBUD figure done in collaboration with Jamungo [pictured above, left], for the show. Four customized Boblbee bags [pictured above, right] will be sold at the exhibit to benefit the local Florida furniture and clothing bank Mustard Seed. You can get more updates on Nakanari and the Me Llamo Jellyfish studio from their blog, or check out the press release for the Peanut Butter & Jellyfish exhibit here. So, if you are in the Orlando area in October, go check out the exhibit and take some pictures for me.
