Toy Street Fair April 22, 2011

I was so glad I got the opportunity to attend this years event which I hope will grow into a large custom toy/sculpture art fair like all the major ones like ArtExpo, Scope,Art Basel,Affordable Art Fair, etc.

The vibe was very welcoming and all the artist were happy to share their knowledge and techniques with me when I asked so that was very rewarding as a whole.

I met some guys that I had heard of before like Lou Pimentel (creator of Cranston Fellow Jr.) Steve Talkowski (creator of  Sketchbot) and the only other African American artist that I know of who does custom toys Lance Lamont aka Mr. Munk all of which were more than happy to pose for a picture with me.

I even gave one of my 4″ custom Munnys to Ron English’s kids as a token of my admiration for them being in their father’s paintings.It probably seemed weird to them that a total stranger would offer such a gift but I believe in putting things out into the universe to see what happens so over all it was a great experience and I can’t wait until next year.
