San Diego Comic Con 2016

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.

WDDetail2 WDDetailIronGiantSideshow Collectibles was across from our location and always brings the wow factor with their collection of statues.

JimClarkFellow exhibitor Jim Clark hired me to create a steampunk frog themed banner for his booth. He proudly poses next to his “ChetArt.”

ChogrinOn Friday I received a pleasant surprise as the fantastically creative Chogrin stopped by with his son to say hello. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chogrin on a number of gallery shows, but up until now we had never met.

Guillermo Del Toro Art Show-Gallery 1988

GDT_PHILLIPS_PROMO_REV“King of the Monsters” by Chet Phillips

Gallery 1988 celebrates the magical and monstrous films of Guillermo Del Toro with the art show: “In Service of Monsters,” curated by Chogrin Muñoz and Gary Deocampo. I was invited (and thus excited) to create an image for a promotional poster for the show. A variety of creatures emerge from a book, including characters from Blade 2, Pacific Rim, Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Pan’s Labyrinth and The Devil’s Backbone. The poster measures 11″ x 17″ and in addition, a signed limited edition Giclee print run and framed version will be available at the gallery and their online shop. I also created “Death Match” for the show. It’s a mash up of the Angel of Death from Hellboy 2 with a the Otachi kaiju and Gipsy Danger from Pacific Rim. For this entry, a print on wood and limited edition Giclee run will be available.

Show reception is Friday, September 11th- 7-10 PM

SDCC 2015 Wrap Up

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.

Curio and CoOur great friends over at Curio & Co. make each trip to SDCC even more special with their friendship and support. Cesare’s awesome Tarot Deck is a thing of beauty. Get your deck HERE while they last.
