New York Comic Con 2011

Wow!  My first New York Comic Con is finished.  It was a great time.

Got to meet George from Toybreak, Matt of Onell Toys, Steve of Sketchbot, and The Sucklord!  Also met up with Darrin, Jared, Connor, Roger, Steve and so many others.  I got my toys signed by Joe Ledbetter and a print signed by Geoff Darrow of Hard Boiled fame!  I met Ben Caldwell and Eric Canete, two artists whose work I really admire.

I was also shocked at how many people were like, "hey, so you're that rivet wars guy!"  It was amazing how supportive people were and encouraging.  I handed out, sold and traded a lot of toys and gave George his XL Rivet shirt :)  So much fun and good will going around.  Lots of people who just love making cool stuff and that's what it's all about.  Such an inspiring weekend.

Making shirts for the show.

Saturday's take.

My take for the show! 


  1. Looks like you had a blast seeing
    a bunch of cool people and cool toys.

  2. Yeah it really was a blast. Meeting folks was the best part. Being new to toy making it's amazing how accepting people are of what I'm doing and really encouraging. It was great to meet so many of those people in person.
