Welcome to Prints on Wood!

ComicCon 2014

Embarking on our first Comiccon experience, we had little idea of the madness that was about to consume the entire downtown Gas Lamp District of San Diego.  Well over 300,000 people convened at the 4 day convention to honor all manners of comic book and pop culture genres.


Thankfully we had a few friends who had been down this road before and prepared us what was to come!  But somethings you can't prepare for...

Our first stop was Tara McPherson's booth, who had sold out of the Inerita and Cosmic Serpent wood prints during the first few days of ComicCon.  Stay tuned for two more wood print releases in August with Tara both featuring art from her Merry Karnowsky show opening August 2nd.  If your in LA come by the gallery on Saturday, RSVP to RSVP@mkgallery.com.

At 3DRetro's booth we found Nathan Ota signing a new toy release, Suited Birds, of which we could not pass up the opportunity to make sure we got one of these cool figures.  Those who missed the opportunity to get one at ComicCon, a few are still available at 3DRetro.com

A few steps away we found the booth belonging to Prints on Wood gallery artist Jose Emroca Flores, who was having a very successful first show at ComicCon.  Jose will be the next featured artist interview where we will here more about his ComicCon experience.

About now our 8 year old son was pleading to head over to the LEGO booth to learn all about the NEW LEGO BATMAN 3 - BEYOND GOTHEM video game.  He was more then thrilled to be one of the first to play the unreleased game, but frosting on the cake was listening to one of the creators of the game talk about the new levels and characters introduced in this version of the game.

After several hours of video games and lego building we were back to the fine art and toys section where were found Jeff Soto's new stackable toy by DKE Toys.  There were only a few left, if you hurry you may be able to get one too!

On our way out, we stopped by Scott Tolleson's booth and picked up this little zombie character.  In the end, I guess the zombies weren't that scary after all.

Until next year ComicCon...
