ChetBoothOur Small Press table for San Diego Comic Con 2016. Complete with Ryan Claytor photo bomb accessory. We had a wonderful time catching up with friends and fellow vendors as well as meeting lots of new awesome attendees. Thank you everyone for a great and prosperous event! Here are a few photos from the exhibit floor.

WD2Hands down the most effective and popular display on the floor was the Walking Dead lineup. Many of the figures looked so lifelike you expected them to blink and move.

ChetArtSetUpPhoto courtesy Brandon/Austin Books and Comics

Another great year at San Diego’s International Comic Con has come and gone. We had a fantastic week of sales, fun and time visiting with wonderful friends. The new Kaiju Baseball card sets, posters and pins were very well received, along with the Ten Tall Tales books and pop culture cats postcard sets. Below are some visual highlights from the show.

 

AdamSmasherHCGpictured: Dion Rogers of Blizzard and Adam Smasher

One of the highlights for me was a visit from Adam Smasher, owner of Hero Complex Gallery in L.A. I’ve had the pleasure of being in several of Adam’s awesome pop culture themed shows over the last couple of years. I look forward to participating in his exciting line up of 2015 fall shows.

BoothActivityWe stayed in a storm of constant activity throughout the length of the show. This shot represents one of the calmer moments. A big shout out thank you to ALL the incredible supporters who visited with words of support and $.

KenLampaughKen Lamplugh stopped by the booth, sporting his ChetArt T-Shirt. Thanks Ken, for all your great support.

EvilBeerOur great booth neighbors Ryan and Paul. Paul shows off his new drink koozie line with “Am I in the Mood for Evil or Beer?” (Ryan appears to have made his choice.) You couldn’t ask for better neighbors and these guys always make me laugh with their great sense of humor and awesome creativity.
