    Of Mice and Men

    1990s • 894 Views

    One of the lighter articles we’ve done here at VoEA that’s for sure! whilst surfing the net, we came across a ‘thing’ that people seem to do, and that’s making little mice people/characters… Obviously a small bunch but this hobby also pops up in the movie ‘Date Night’ with Steve Carrell. The idea seems to be to make small furry toy versions of famous people, or characters from everyday life (so it seems). To cut a short story even shorter, we’ve picked out 20 faves from ‘The House of Mouse’ group on Flickr for your delight.

    The  Nauga is a vinyl beast who looks like he could of been a character in the popular children’s book Where the Wild Things Are – if it was based in a furniture store.

    The Nauga was a mythical monster created for a campaign in the 1960s to market the artificial American leather brand Naugahyde.

    Long before the days when we all had multiple TVs at home and way before the concept of 24 hour rolling news was even dreamt of, people would get their news updated from the radio, newspapers and if they wanted any visual content they would go and watch a newsreel at the local cinema. The main provider of these newsreels was British Pathe; a company whose roots can be traced back to the very start of motion pictures. Continue Reading
