San Diego, CA – July 23, 2009 – Mimoco, maker of MIMOBOT character-based USB flash drives, introduces Bossy Bear x MIMOBOT, an artist series collaboration with David Horvath, the toy and storybook artist most famous as co-creator of the award winning Uglydoll characters and plush line.

Bossy Bear x MIMOBOT flash drives are premiering today at Mimoco’s San Diego Comic Con booths #4938 and #2913M in the Star Wars Pavilion, and at Mimoco’s online shop. The drive comes in 1GB to 8GB capacities, and is bundled with Bossy Bear-themed wallpapers, icons, avatars, screensavers, and Mimoco’s mimoByte™ sound software.

Mr. Horvath will be on hand for a signing at Mimoco’s booth #4938 in the Toy Growers / Cult Yard section of Comic Con on Saturday, July 25th at 5:30PM. Fans can also watch an exclusive interview with David with the release of mimoZine issue 6, Mimoco’s digital magazine that covers a mix of pop-culture, technology, and the environment.

David Horvath joins fellow MIMOBOT Artist Series collaborators, Gary Baseman, Tokidoki, FriendsWithYou, Bubi Au Yeung, and many others in the contemporary character and pop-art universe of vinyl toys, comic books, and graffiti.
