SDCC Highlights: Customs

Preview Night at SDCC was by far the busiest day at the Gargamel booth. Kiyoka, Naoya, Katope, and I all brought a few pieces of all sizes. Kiyoka's limited edition camouflage Zagoran figures probably went the fastest, along with Kiyok and Naoya's customs. I hear the line stretched down the whole aisle.

SDCC Highlights: Portraits

Going to Royal Thai in the Gaslamp District of downtown San Diego has been a Grass Hut/Gargamel tradition for the past 4 years.
Their tables are covered with paper, and we always have pens. This year the theme became portraits, and Bwana and Chanmen did mine.

SDCC Gargamel Update

Just one more day of comic con. We sold out of the Crouching Zagoran and the Butanohana Thrash Man figures, and have just one more Helper/Relphe figure by Tim Biskup. Most of the customs from preview night have sold out, but a few remain. Here's a pic for those who might be interested.

In Los Angeles

We just arrived in Los Angeles and spent the day driving around and eating and shopping. Tomorrow is another free day before we head down to San Diego for Comic Con. I think everyone is going to sleep well tonight.

A few pics from Kappa Ten. There's a nice variety of work at the event, from paintings and ceramic figures, to toys and a piece of kappa skin that guests are invited to touch. Above is Matt Alt's Kappa Machinder, a custom kappa style Jumbo Machinder inspired piece.

Kappa Ten

I have just about finished preparing for Kappa Ten. Kappa Ten is art exhibition featuring work inspired by kappa. This show will feature a variety of artwork, paintings, figures, etc. by a small group of kappa-krazy people (including Matt Alt of Yokai Attack). This should be a fun event. I will be displaying a few custom Tokoji Seijin figures as well as some photographs. Kappa Ten runs from July 9th to the 21st in Ikebukuro (click map above to enlarge). An opening reception and kappa-maki party will be held on Saturday, July 11th from 5:00 to 6:30. The party is open to the public so please stop by!
