I got to the event very early on in the day, hoping to get in the gallery to snap some shots and take some video of the customs before the event eventually kicked off, and fortunately I was able to do just that. As the night progressed the line started to form outside the door, and people were talks about Marka27's "Half Dead" 8" production Bic Buddy that was releasing that evening... but unfortunately, do to some unforeseen circumstances, the figures were held up at the US Customs office... what a bummer, but everyone seemed very understanding, and even though that happened it did not put a damper on the night at all! The figure should be out of Customs and on it's way for the New York release at Zakka on April 9th, but if you can't make it in person you can pre-order "Half Dead" right now over at Crewest for only $60 as well as the Blank 8" Bic Buddy for $25!

As mentioned before, there were a grip of artists that came out for the show... even Jesse Hernandez hopped on a flight last minute from SF to make it there a couple hours before the gallery shut down to do some sketching for some fans, and all the artist that were there did this very thing for all their fans. Scribe flew out from KC, and Marka flew out from NYC, so rad to get all these great artists in one place! Great times great people, great friends is what sums up this whole experience... and I can't wait until the next event!
