The tagline for our ‘Cuddly Destruction’ banner read so cute you died, and I think we accomplished our mission at WonderCon 2015! On behalf of Vanessa and Rodger, I want to thank everyone who stopped by our table this weekend.
Vanessa released a few new resin figures at this event, including Manzana the Emotionally Compromised Apple and Lambtaur. Both figures sold out at WonderCon, but she may be making more for a future release.
Our Cuddly Destruction table featured new prints by Jared Andrew Schorr and toy photography prints by Orbital Ox. We also unveiled our new Attack on Titan tribute tee (available in S – XL). There was so much love for Burgercorn, and Rodger even sketched a custom panda burgercorn for a fan.
If you missed out on getting a Burgercorn sticker or button, you can get them here.
In case you haven’t heard, WonderCon 2016 will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on March 25-27, 2016.
Here’s a little taste of what Vanessa Ramirez will be bringing to WonderCon 2015! There are tiny purple monsters and Manzana, the emotionally crippled apple.
She’ll also have brand new owls and a few other surprises. Look for our “Cuddly Destruction” banner in the Small Press section of Hall D!
Are you going to WonderCon 2015? Look for the “Cuddly Destruction” table (Small Press 42) where we’ll kill you with cuteness! We’ll have burgercorn buttons and stickers, art photography prints by Orbital Ox, and monsters and dapper goods by Vanessa Ramirez.
We’ll also debut a new tee for fellow Attack on Titan fanatics. Hope to see you guys there! Mention this post and I’ll give you some burgercorn swag.
We’re getting closer to the opening reception of Supahcute Kaiju Show 2: Cuter, Better, Fatter, Stronger! This adorable painting by Angela Song is called “Kaiju Lessons.”
Bernard is either ready for a hug or for a fight. Meet him and the other monsters by Vanessa Ramirez this Saturday at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland. Supahcute Kaiju Show 2 opens on Saturday, March 14 with a reception from 6-10pm.
Here is a sneak preview of 1 of 2 pieces by Luke Flowers. More sneak preview and WIP photos are available on Flickr and on the Facebook event page. We will not have an online preview for the show, but serious inquires should contact email@example.com.
As I look back at 2014, I realize that it was a very good year filled with good times and new adventures. In January, I curated Supahcute Kaiju Show, the first of three group art shows at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland. It was the first show that I released an exclusive t-shirt, designed by Jerrod Maruyama.
March marked the opening of Supahcute Science Fair, a kid-friendly show that combined art and science. We were happy to see that both kids and adults enjoyed the exhibition.
Earlier in the year, I asked Vanessa Ramirez if she wanted to share a booth at WonderCon. She said no. But I forgot she said no and decided to get a booth anyway. In April, we exhibited at our first ever WonderCon and that was both fun and nerve-wracking. This also marked Orbital Ox‘s debut as an artist!
In May, Leanna and I co-curated Doggie Wonderland, an art show benefit that raised money for Ken-Mar Small Dog Rescue. The turn-out was better than we anticipated, and all of the artists raised money for a great cause!
Summerland Movie Club “A Tribute to Our Favorite Summer Movies” opened in July, and that opening event was so much fun!
October was all about the first-ever Hello Kitty Con, and we had the best time ever!!!
Our final event of 2014 was Designer Con, where we launched our burgercorn resin figures by Orbital Ox and Vanessa Ramirez. We sold out of the mini-burgercorns and sold the remaining large figures later this year.
Whew! As 2014 comes to an end, here’s a quick look at what’s coming up for Supahcute in 2015:
- My next group art show – Supahcute Kaiju Show 2: Cuter, Better, Fatter, Stronger – opens at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland on March 14.
- WonderCon 2015 (hopefully)
- Another group show scheduled at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland for September/October. Details to come…
- Burgercorns v2.0
- Designer Con 2015 (hopefully)
- Supahcute x Orbital Ox comic/zine collaboration
