San Diego Comic Con 2017

San Diego Comic Con 2017: ChetArt table in the Small Press area, table O-01. 2017 was a great year in San Diego for us thanks to the great support of everyone who came by to purchase and visit. Thank you all for the fantastic time! Here are some highlights of the show floor with exhibits and cosplay.

Preview night! Jeffrey Vaca presented me with a vintage game cartridge version of my Parzival’s Quest artwork that I created in tribute to Ready Player One. Thank you Jeffrey, for the wonderfully creative gift!

Another great highlight of the show was a visit from Cory Doctrow. Cory has been a great supporter over the years, highlighting several of my projects on boingboing. Thank you for taking the time to come by for the visit, Cory!

Our great neighbors Paul Friedrich and Ryan Claytor in Small Press.

The first time in seven years straight without our good friends Cesare and Kirstie of Curio and Co. They sat out this year and were truly missed. Check out their site of amazing things.

Thank you San Diego for a great year. Hope to see you again in 2018!
