NYCC 2010 Exclusive Travis Louie Art Hustle card at Tenacious booth

We are SUPER stoked to offer NYCC attendees a very special Exclusive at our booth: one FREE NYCC Exclusive foil-stamped Travis Louie Art Hustle card with the purchase of an Art Hustle pack! Art Hustle packs are just $3.50, making this possibly one of the most affordable NYCC Exclusives out there! You must buy the pack at our booth to qualify. 

Here are some behind-the-scenes photos from Sidekick Lab showing the creation of the special Travis Louie cards using their fancy-pants foil stamping machine:

The Travis Louie card does not appear in the regular Art Hustle packs so this is a very special and sought-after card. Sidekick Lab made us 180 of these foil-stamped NYCC cards so you'll definitely want to stop by our booth early to make sure you get one.

What is the Art Hustle series all about?
The Art Hustle is a boutique set of artist and art-based trading cards exhibiting an international group of 75 artists working in street art, toy art, kaiju, sketch, illustration, painting, aerosol art, poster art, tattoo art, digital art, collage, sculpture, photography and more.
Inspired by trading cards produced from the 1960’s through the 80’s, the set offers up some vintage-inspired flavor including chipboard card stock and the much-loved wax paper wrapper. Cards also come with interesting facts on the backs that you don’t want to miss.

Nolasco / Blamo Project Unveiling at NYCC 2010

The Brent Nolasco / Blamo Project will be introduced at the Tenacious Toys booth (#2878) at the 2010 New York Comic-Con, October 8-10.

The Nolasco / Blamo resin project is a way for Brent to express himself and to have a non-conventional release. Brent wanted the process of making figures and products to be more of a fine art than mass production. He wanted a more "hands on" approach to making his next figure, like how resin figures were first done by artists.

Brent first sculpted this figure by hand. It's something he had never done before. The figure consists of 6 pieces that are hand casted separately and then put together.  Each piece is hand painted by Brent so there is slight variation in each paint job.  

Each piece is very unique and has it's own characteristics that set them apart from one another. Brent likes that they are more organic and free-formed than pieces from a factory which pumps out products for the masses. It makes each release more personal.  

The runs on these upcoming figures are going to be limited quantities. Some will be just "one-offs". Brent is looking to do some sculpting and other interesting things with these figures to keep the ideas fresh.

Figure Info:
Name: Mijo (My Child)
Medium: Resin, Acrylic Paints
Size: 5.5 inches
Price: $300
