Gallery 1988 West presents “The Power of Mattel” show, a collection of artworks based on classic Mattel games and toys. My contribution, titled “Rock ‘Em Snark’Em Robots,” is a mashup of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots with Mystery Science Theater 3000 robots Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot. Also included are a few Kaiju references.
Show opening is Friday, September 30th and on display through October 15th.
A highlight for me was a visit from Judge Reinhold. He purchased several prints and greeting cards, was truly supportive and graciously posed for a picture.
Wizard World Comic Con Austin was a great show on many levels. Wonderful support and purchases from attendees and the opportunity to visit with friends, fellow artists and fans, both returning and new.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by and visit! The artist alley area was jam packed with talent. Here are just a few of some that I know and a few I had the privilege of meeting for the first time. Be sure and visit their links to see how great they really are and support their efforts:
On a crisp November morning in 1889, our world was transformed with the appearance of a dimensional rift behind the sleepy cottage of Conrad Rookwood Corrigan. The mysterious world populated by Imaginary Friends was revealed and humankind would never be the same.
Lucky Talisman display cards feature a Maneki-Neko inspired selection of characters with illustrations by Chet Phillips. Cards are inspired by the Japanese beckoning cat figures displayed to bring good luck and fortune.
Each card is a heavy duty thick book board, covered in a variety of Japanese papers. (Each item comes with a random Japanese paper.) Includes wooden stand with slot for card to rest in.
Cards measure 3.5″ x 5″ with rounded top corners.
Variety of 6. Click each card’s photo for link to online listing.
