San Diego Comic Con 2018 is here.

Last year I was fortunate and was able to do a figure for DKE Toys.  The “Unemployed Trooper” sold out by Friday morning.

For 2018 I was able to participate again with DKE Toys for San Diego Comic Con.  We went with the Weekend Dad Trooper.  Hand cast and painted, this figure is limited to 25 pieces total and will have a spray painted “slap” sticker that will be on the back of the card.  Only available at the DKE booth.  So head over and get one.

October 8th and 9th is Fan Days at the Irving Convention Center.  I’ll have a table set up in artists alley, if you’re in the DFW area this weekend you really should make it an effort to attend the show.  Lots of celebrities for autographs, tons of cool vendors, some great artists, and quite a few killer comic book creators will be there.

This is one of the pieces that will be with me and my wife at our table.  Stop by and see us.  Look for the banner with the rather large orange 13 on it.

This piece measures approx 12.5″x35.5″ and is one solid porcelain tile.  It will be available for purchase and is one of a kind.  The pictures really don’t do the tile justice, it’s got a nice pattern on it.
