Sorry for the lack of updates, lots of stuff coming very soon, including Tiger Boss, more Max Boys ! Plus, you didn’t hear it from me, but one last shipment of Hello Kitty Kaiju for EMP museum (fingers crossed !) This weekend, Max and myself debut our Father & Son Kaiju TriPus painted set for Clutter Gallery show, Kaiju Battlers ! This is Max’s first painted mini Kaiju and his official debut in a art show 😉 I think he did a great job ! Contact Clutter for more info, preview list etc ( Thank you sold ! 3-18-2016) :
Here’s my 80s chrome style logo .. with photoshop help by Max 😉 I believe all the logos are printed on wood, with proceeds benefiting a Cancer charity. Check it out !
So this was the year I wasn’t going to SDCC aka Comic Con … the Max Boy really wanted to go so who am I to stand in the way of the next generation of collectors ? Not having luck in the ticket pool, toy friends got us in ! It was as usual an onslaught of everything ! I’ve been going since the late 80s, so I’ve seen the convention transform into what it is today. In my opinion, not really my cup of tea, I miss the old school dealers and actual comic sellers, but time marches on.

Once again the fine folks at Squibbles Ink / Rotofugi hosted several of my customs (which sold out). Do yourself a favor and check out Rotofugi store online: http://www.rotofugi.com/home
Personally I don’t really find much at these conventions anymore … I take that back, I find LOTS of things I’d want … like a $70,000 Jack Kirby piece of art (!) Ha ! … not in this lifetime ;-P
Max and I do take our annual YuGiOh card picture, which is free … and honestly the best thing i could get from the convention 🙂
So the first Galaxy Pup I did, was stolen, so i quickly painted up another and brought it down for artist Martin Hsu’s booth … luckily it sold within minutes 😉
Also a big Thank You to Mike Minjares for all his help and our annual lunch with Honda and Andrew.
So basically I told Max I’d buy him whatever he wanted, but I’m not going to wait in any lines or go to one place to get a coupon, only to return to another place to MAYBE get a toy. He agreed nothing is worth that much trouble… plus he noted everything ends up on Ebay .. haha … I’m glad he’s not buying into the hype.
Max found plenty to buy regardless, so we didn’t return empty handed for sure. At the end of the day, I turned to him and asked if he’d like to come back next year … there was a slight pause … and he faintly said .. yes ! I guess i don’t have a choice … 2016 .. ugh !
