Run the Jewels Statue Sculpted by Steven Cartoccio


We have to give props to our NYCC boothmate Steven Cartoccio for the super fast sellout on the official Run the Jewels statue that he sculpted for them.

A masterpiece which was immediately recognized by the Run the Jewels fans! Wonder what's next? Ask Steven yourself at our NYCC booth #780 where he will be from October 5-8.



Italian based pop surreal painter Simona Candini created an exclusive collection of new work for PIQ of her favorite complex women that will hang from 09/29-10/12.  Applying her signature theme of the light vs. dark and meticulous painting style, Simona selected her favorite pop culture hero and villains to express the power of femininity. The show features ten original paintings, six oils and four mixed treatment watercolors. Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Danerys, and all of her ladies show confidence, conflict, and a fighting spirit in their large expressive eyes. 

To compliment the details and energy of each canvas, Simona hand painted one-of-a-kind ornate frames that become part of the story of each subject. In addition to the original paintings there will be six more pop heroines in limited edition glicee canvas prints. The show opens 6:00 Friday Sept 29 at PIQ Grand Central Terminal and will continue through October 12

Preview the show at, where Simona Candini's paintings will be available for sale starting the 28th at 7:00pm.

About Simona Candini

A graduate of the Academy Of Fine Arts University of Bologna, Simona Candini splits her time between Italy and USA working as a full time artist primarly within the pop surreal genre.

Her works, showcased in galleries around the globe, embody a beautiful yet sometimes dark world inhabited by big eyed girls and improbable creatures. With a stirring of emotions translated onto each new work of art, Simona brings her love of the old fairytales and childhood imaginings to us in a unique and poetic way. She is a traditional artist and enjoys using oils, watercolor, acrylics, graphite and pencils on paper, canvas and wood boards.

Mario Trooper Lapel Pin by Playful Gorilla


From the depths of the Gorilla Cave far far away comes a pin release too epic not to discuss! Playful Gorilla Presents the Mario Trooper Lapel Pin!

Trying to bridge the gap of custom toys and pin drops this 2" tall soft enamel pin is based on Playful Gorilla's giant 26" custom released last year. For this who followed his antics - the custom was for Clutter Magazines Hitsquad art show last summer. It made its rounds around the con circuit from D.C. To Ny and back to Philly.

Leaning heavy on his illustrative work - the pin pays homage to that custom in a playful way. Combining his love for both the Starwars universe and that of the most famous plumbers, the Mario Trooper is a must add to your pin collection!

The pins are produced and are on their way! But as we wait on final shipping from overseas, Playful Gorilla has opened up 25 preorder slots that comes with some extra goodies! Each pre-order will  come with a matching 3" kiss cut sticker. Visit today to take full advantage of the pre-order freebies!
