Clearly even the sky isn’t the limit for these awesome kids. If they meet Superman while they’re up there, we hope they get his autograph.

You know we love tentacles. So, when Bonnie Burton announced she was hosting a tentacle art show at Ltd. Art Gallery in Seattle, we had to be involved. Our very own designer Jim Koch supplied the blood curdling painting above.
The show open tomorrow, May 4th, at 7PM. It runs until June 1st and is must see for all hardcore cephalopod fans!
Seattle-based artist Diem Chau (previously featured here) shared her most recent creation, an awesomely tiny Maneki Neko and tower of coins carved from crayons. The tiny fortune cat is part of an exhibition at the Bellevue Arts Museum entitled Maneki Neko: Japan’s Beckoning Cats – From Talisman to Pop Icon:
“Since the Edo period (1603 - 1868) a fabricated cat with a paw upraised in the Japanese gesture of beckoning has been considered a good luck charm, drawing good fortune to individuals and businesses. This exhibition highlights a unique selection of more than 150 cats collected by maneki neko aficionado Billie Moffitt, as well as interpretations of this tradition by renowned contemporary artists. Whether carved in wood or stone, sculpted in clay or formed in papier mâché, these alluring and enigmatically artful felines express aspects both of historic Japanese lore and contemporary pop culture.”
In fact, according to this happy customer, his corgi specifically asked him for a unicorn horn after hearing about them at the park. So the word is out on the street: Inflatable Unicorn Horns for everyone!

Even superheroes like Spider-Man aren’t immune to Vandal Eyes mischief.
This year Archie McPhee has its very own booth, #2013.
Is that Loki menacing Slicey the Pig? You bet it is.
This sort of awesomeness only happens at comicon! ECCC has always been a hotbed of awesomeness and the best part is that it gets bigger, better, and possibly even sillier every single year.
Come over to booth 2013 and say hello! Have your photo taken with Mr. Bacon and a giant squirrel wearing underpants! Snag an exclusive Archie McPhee Comicon t-shirt. You might even get to meet the Original Unicorn.
Emerald City Comicon runs through tomorrow, Sunday March 3rd and we’ll be here the whole time, soaking up and helping to spread the geeky awesomeness of it all.
