Welcome to the latest installment of the recurring Instagram Roundup. Every friday, I bring you art, toys, cats and propaganda from the IG universe. I had to skip a week while I was traveling, but hopefully this 50-pic strong Roundup will make up for last week’s absence.
Today’s Instagram Roundup includes toy art in the form of: production toys, custom toys and upcoming toys. It’s got cats with toys, cats in boxes and TWO appearances from Bear. It’s got Bear, but also a bat, a raccoon and a KAWS dog. As for text and propaganda: Romney = bad, Keith Haring = not a vegetarian and there’s some bizarre mixed messages about drugs, noise and a woodchipper who cares for trees.
So click through, enjoy, and see you next week!
