NYCC’16: The Block!


New York Comic Con supports the popular arts, and that is especially seen in The Block.

The Block brings together art, design, collectible toys and fashion of the underground pop culture scene, along with the tastemakers, trend setters, artists, thinkers and the brands that they create.

There’s lots of cool stuff to see, like an art fair for cool kids.

I’ll try and notate everything I saw… but apologies to the many creators! You can view them all here!

We Love Fine. That’s Red in the yellow dress with the ultimate accessory. Also various Demiheroes. Via Big Shot Toy Works.
