When I comes to a toy/art company Coarse has out done themselves on a personal level. After hearing the news that my dear friend Roman Shevchenko passed away, Coarse issued a press release stating that Roman will get a Art toy in remembrance to him and help his family. Roman being a huge (huge is an under statement ) Coarse collector. Not only that ALL profits will be donated to the family of Roman.
Death never visited you, did it?
Other girls lost dogs and cats to old age and disease, and plants of which their parents had given them charge inevitably withered and browned, but that never felt like a real death.
Even grandparents slipped away quietly.
When your teachers showed you gritty newsreel footage of war and slaughter, of bodies carelessly heaved into mass graves, it must have felt as distant as celebrities fading into mock lifelessness amid the sound of crunching popcorn in a theater’s Friday night crowd.
No official date of release just yet but they have just updated their Instagram and social media site with this new image which looks like a new colour scheme. This coming Saturday will be Toycon and will be another reminder Roman will not be here…. but hopefully here in sprit and we make you proud Roman.. see you on the other side sir… memories will stay with us forever.
