Behind The Scenes At Nerf HQ And The Making Of The Slingfire Zombie Blaster

How do you design a Nerf blaster that's appropriate for kids, but looks menacing enough to blow out a zombie's brains? You get rid of the spiked knuckles for one.

When the dead walk the earth, the future of humanity will be fought with Nerf! That's the idea behind Zombie Strike, Nerf's line of foam dart blasters designed to look like weapons from an imaginary zombie apocalypse. Due out this fall, the newest weapon in the Zombie Strike line is the Slingfire, a pump-action, post-apocalyptic, sawed-off boomstick. But, you know, for kids.

Hey Dollface: Creepy Figures by Freya Jobbins

Hey Dollface Creepy Figures by Freya Jobbins 650x580 Hey Dollface: Creepy Figures by Freya Jobbins
One man’s trash is another artist’s treasure, or I think that’s how it goes. Sydney-based artist Freya Jobbins makes bizarre sculptures of human faces and chiselled physiques, as well as famous characters like The Terminator, Darth Vader, and Batman. What’s more amazing is her choice of material: hundreds of discarded doll body parts.

Using dismembered plastic parts from old dolls and other toys, artist Freya Jobbins assembles these exceedingly strange portraits of people and pop culture icons. Chances are when viewing these you fall firmly into one of two camps: the highly amused or the highly disturbed. Regardless, it’s hard to deny the incredible amount of labor that goes into each piece, from the exploration of form and the use of color to make each anatomical amalgamation.

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa and raised in West Sydney, Jobbins is influenced in part by Guiseppe Archimboldo’s fruit and vegetable paintings as well as Ron Mueck’s oversized humans. I first encountered Jobbins’ work close-up at the Toy Cycle exhibition in Tel Aviv back in December courtesy of Kinetis, and despite the mild case of heebie-jeebies it was impossible to look away as I tried to figure out how each piece came together.

You can see more freaky faces over in Jobbin’s online gallery and on Facebook. (via Juxtapoz, FastCo)
