Original Post

I will be having a signing this year at New York Comic Con at the Tenacious Toys collective, booth 208 in the Kid Ink Industries section (props to Kris Dulfer) on Saturday, October 12 (my birthday as well) at 1pm.  I will be bringing with me my first, limited edition set of 15 giclee prints of my “MACHINE TYPE AW177-STEALTH EDITION” design.

They are 11″x14″ giclee prints done on Moab Entrada Rag Natural 290 gsm, 21.5 mil, 100% cotton archival paper.  They will be signed, numbered and bagged with a backing board and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Also will come w/ a sticker and some mini art cards –all this for only $20!

So at the con, you can buy the white edition mecha t-shirt “MACHINE TYPE AW177-OO1” at the Outsmart Originals section and get the black stealth mecha “MACHINE TYPE AW177-STEALTH EDITION” print at my signing.

Please come on out, just to say what’s up or get a sketch!

Also, I have been cutting back on doing custom art toy work to focus more on doing digital/graphic art/design and it’s been good so far.  However, this year for NYCC 2013, I guess I felt out of place for not having any new pieces on display last year and wanted to do something new and exciting for this year.  Plus this may be the last time I actually do a custom anymore, so wanted to go big or go home.

Decided to try to do a mecha-inspired Kidrobot munny custom, somewhat based on my “MACHINE TYPE AW177-STEALTH EDITION” design.  The intent was not to duplicate or create an exact replica of the design (as that would be beyond my customizing skills and due to the lack of time), but to create something similar to it.

And besides, as an artist, shouldn’t you try to do something new and unknown to you before?

Without going into great detail (that may be in another future WIP blog post), here are some progress pics of it so far.  At this point, I am still not done with it! It’s almost there, but I am hoping to get it all done in time for NYCC on Thursday, October 10!

This will be on display/sale at the Outsmart Originals section in the Tenacious Toys collective, booth #208.  Then it will be on display/sale at the Kid Ink Industries section during my signing on Saturday.

If you are interested in buying it, whether before the con or during the con, hit me up and we’ll talk.

Anyway, WIP pics – enjoy and keep coming back here for more updates!
