Spray Can Magnets - New York Comic Con - Booth 404

I have some new projects for the New York Comic Con in October I'd like to share with you. I will be at booth #404 at the Jacob Javits Center on Oct. 6-9th.

The first new release for the comic con are some custom 3.5 inch tall spray can flat back magnet resins that will come with glitter, confetti, glow in the dark versions and all will have a strong magnetic strip attached to their backs. To compliment the series there will also be some limited blank white versions and few cleartints. The various spray cans will be available at the New York Comic con at my booth but it's not a exclusive item so check the Argonaut Resins online store during the show if you can't make it to the comic con.

Why spray cans?  This past year I've seen dozens of images online of mural artists painting up all sorts of walls around the world but what struck my eye was huge amount of used uncapped spray cans that littered the scene. It just looked so surreal, so many cans, so many many colors and to think this spray can invention was created to hold and release almost any color at a masterful artists discretion just locked up my mind. I figured I'd create my own mini can in a 3D modeling program, 3D print it as a flat back magnet and cast it up in all sorts of crazy fun colors...almost magical. Last year my self indulgent resin project was the Piragua a icie treat from my childhood in Spanish Harlem, this year it's the spray can.
