Art-Toys Book Signing

Wow! I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I last posted here… been super busy!

I recently had the great honor and pleasure to be invited along with a few other artists and toy designers to sign Brian McCarty’s forthcoming book, “Art-Toys: Photographs by Brian McCarty“. Brian is THE premier toy photographer in the world and a monograph of his work is finally being published. Congratulations Brian!

The signing event itself was a blast and a great opportunity to reconnect with my fellow peers, friends and heroes, many of which are considered some of the top artists in their respective fields. In attendance at the signing and included in the book were Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, Luke Chueh, Frank Kozik, MARS-1, Mark Ryden, Michelle Valigura, Amanda Visell, Yoskay Yamamoto and many more (as well as myself, of course.)

The book is available at, Brian’s website as well as at the San Diego Comic-Con if you happen to be down there this week. Below is a little video I took of the event with my iPhone 4.
