Comic Con Wrap up Part 2 of 2!

Here are some of the items that made it back from the New York Comic con last weekend that are now available in the online STORE. Some pearl cast pieces from myself and some pieces from Clinton Yaws, Laura Alvarez, and Angella Powell. Also loaded up are a few more images from the show of the team at work and people who stopped by the booth along with a few fans, cosplayers and friends on the collectibles scene.







It was a pleasure to watch Rich Page get busy on a live custom that sold pretty quick. UK representing for the win!

 When a big time collector, friend and fan comes by and asks for a sketch I dropped everything and got busy, rusty or not. Thanks Mark!
 Mr. Mark Maksimik very happy with his live sketch.
Speaking of winning Rich Page won the "Best Resin" category at The Designer Toy Awards. Congrats buddy!

The super awesome Regine Sawyer of Lockett Down Productions stopped by for a photo op with Selina and Laura. 

One of my favorite pics from the con showing the ladies doing what we do - amazing live art at the booth!!!

Some of the wicked art the ladies knocked out at the show. I know which one is mines!!!



 We brought a lot of goodies this year, probably the most ever for one show (I'm still feeling con lag...)

There were about a zillion cosplayers at the con this year and they were not playing around, looking all fab and what not.




 Great people, great con, great experience. What more can you ask for...we will be back!

 Senor JellyBot plush patrolled the booth all four days till he and his cohorts got sold out.

 In case anybody messed with us we'd send over the toweringly talented Jon Paul Kaiser to take care of business, UK style.
Thank you all and we hope to see you next year!

New York Comic Con 2014 Wrap Up - part 1 of 2!

Well another amazing comic con has come to an end and I always delay on the post because I like the fun buzz to hang around me for a few days. This year we had an incredible show featuring some awesome artists that came through big time! First off I'd like to thank the entire team that made show the best one ever - THANK YOU!!! ->
Artist Selina Briggs of The Jelly Empire! It's always a smart decision to share the booth with Selina at the con because she's just a non-stop ball of energy that people love to come to see and get new art and collectibles from. She was the glue that held the whole thing together and backed me up big time when I needed it. Cheers lady!!!
Guest artist Laura Alvarez! Laura got all of her projects done on time, put the hours in at the shop working on customs non stop and made sure everything was perfect for her first featured showing at the comic con. She did live painting at the booth on the Tuttz, Hound and Sucio mouse customs, did sketches for fans that stopped by and worked the booth like a seasoned pro. Salud!!!
I also want to thank artists Angella Powell for her Beatnik Mini's (which sold out at the show) and sweater 8 inch Tuttz cats which all looked fantastic.
Artist Clinton Yaws is always on time and his work has always been inspiring, exciting, razor sharp and top notch, every single time.
Artist Megan MeSmithyman for her incredible 8 inch leather wrapped Tuttz cats done in a style none of us have ever seen before, original and amazingly detailed.
Artist Rich Page of  Ume Toys (who not only won the Best Resin category at this year's Designer Toy Awards) for coming by the booth and doing some live painting on a 8 inch Tuttz as a matching set to his own Dita resin cat. Cheers!!!
Artist Soko Cat for some uber fun and cool customs.
Thank you Deborah Montanez for taking the best comic con pictures for the entire team and for even covering Xmoor Studios for me as well. You totally rock!
Thank you -> Pete Michaud and Paul Ip for holding down the booth, helping out full blast and backing us all up big time. You guys rock! Also thanks to all the friends, fans and collectors who showed up and supported us making the show even more special. We were truly humbled.
We will be back next year if all goes well, but in the meantime here are a bunch photos by Deborah, with a few from me as well speckled in ->
