Pinterest: taking your childhood collections online

Curio & Co. celebrates 2000 followers on Pinterest. Image from www.curioandco.com

Reinventing the simple scrapbook

We’re pleased as punch to find that we’ve reached 2000 followers on Pinterest. Pinning collections and boards on Pinterest is a lot of fun, and when you find people to share it with who enjoy it as much as you, it just makes the fun a little sweeter, you know?

And Pinterest is a lot of fun. From the discovery of new artists or missed classics, to reconnecting with childhood favorites, Pinterest never fails to give us an “Oh, yeah” moment with each pin. Plus, while some of us in the office are very organized and others are… very, very disorganized, rearranging pins and creating new boards is the aspect we all love. Is Play-Doh a toy, an art supply or… a food? Having this kind of dialog and playing these kinds of games with the pins always puts a smile on our faces.

Best of all, Pinterest, for all its cutting edge technology and...

Happy New Year

Curio & Co. looks back on 2014. Image courtesy of Curio and Co. www.curioandco.com

C’mon 2015, we’re ready for you!

Looking back on the year gives us a lot to be thankful for – 2014 was pretty good to us at Curio & Co.

We were so happy to be able to bring you so many pop culture classics this year – especially our favorite childhood memory in print, Spaceman Jax: Through the Mantagon Minefield. Any day that brings back those warm, cozy feelings from childhood is a real treat, and we were happy to share those days with friends old and new at Comic-Con this year.

We’re not just looking back, however. We’re already looking to the future, busy planning some exciting projects that are poised to ensure that 2015 is going to be even more fun. We can’t wait.

We have a tradition at the last Curio & Co. staff meeting of the year to share our resolutions for the future. Louis has resolved to...

Finding Frank and His Friend - curioandco.com

Finding Frank and his Friend

Previously unpublished works by Clarence 'Otis' Dooley

It was easy to love Frank and his Friend, with its ice cream smudged logic and playful escapism. The characters charmed their way into our hearts and influenced countless cartoonists. These 52 never-before-seen images provide a glimpse into the development of one of the most enduring comics and allow us to meet Frank and his Friend all over again. 

The images, dating from the comic’s early years, were lost after Dooley’s untimely death in 1984.  These drawings and illustrations, seen for the first time in over 30 years, reveal much of the journey Dooley took in creating our favorite...

Croquettes

Oberpfaffendorfer

The television commercial made in the 1950s for Oberpfaffendorfer’s croquettes is adorable. The animated croquettes dance in a conga line around the plate, until one by one they dive off the fork into a waiting mouth. The last one turns...

Merry Christmas from Curio & Co.

There’s no reason to pout – Santa Claus is coming to town!

The tree is trimmed. The stockings are up. We’ve even put out some milk and cookies (the ones we haven’t eaten, anyway). All we need now is the Big Guy.

It’s amazing how Santa manages to get all around the world in one night – and even remembers Spaceman Jax and his friends across the galaxy. (Do they have chimneys in space?)

Here’s wishing you all the best that jolly old elf can bring, and – taking a tip from Spaceman Jax’s own list...
