Dunny (Evolved series) Opening SoHo NYC. Frank Kozik & Karey Maurice

I had the rare opportunity to hit the “City” for not just one event, but two in the same night and in the same neighborhood which I was very familiar with called (SoHo) and lately the event invitations keep pulling me not only to the same section of town but; ironically, the same street.
The first event was a fundraiser to gather money for the annual Halloween Parade which I thought like most people was funded by the Cultural Commission of New York or something and the money was always secured somehow? But the truth of the matter is that the parade is privately funded and is supported by only the people who seem to want to keep the tradition alive!
The event was held at a place called “The Fun House Gallery” which I had never heard of before but was curious to check it out because of the convenience of it’s location to the second event at Kidrobot just around the corner on Prince Street where I knew there was going to be a photo opportunity and a chance to meet some of my designer toy heroes like Huck Gee and Frank Kozik (seen in photo) who were doing a signing of a new Dunny release in conjunction with New York Comic Con this year. I got a chance to speak with Mr. Kozik outside the store and was able to grab a snapshot with him after having him sign one of my purchases that night.
