Sketchbot Custom Show Recap

I'm very pleased to inform you all that The Sketchbot Custom Show at My Plastic Heart was a huge success!  We had an amazing turnout - there were easily 100-150 people that made it thru the tiny space in 3 hours, and the overall reaction was super positive.  It was great to see many of the local artists in attendance, and for those who couldn't experience the show in person, we streamed the opening live on UStream.

Opening night sales were not bad, with 12 pieces selling instantly. I know times are still tough, but there are 32 pieces still up for grabs (and more than a few for under $200), so visit this link and get yours before they're all gone!

The Sketchbot Custom Show Flickr set has been updated with 82 new pictures I shot during the opening. I would encourage you to see it up close in person if you find yourself in NYC - the show is up for one more week and closes next Friday, April 23rd.

For those that simply can't make it out, you're in luck!  One of my custom artists, Dave Gittleman, was on hand with his Canon 5DMarkII as our official show photographer and shot an incredible amount of footage that he assembled into this killer video!

I want to thank all of you who came out and gave your support to a totally new platform. I also want to thank Vince and Bikei from My Plastic Heart for giving me the opportunity and space to host the show. And most importantly, a huge thanks goes out to my manufacturing partner, MAD, who worked his magic last October in acquiring 50 blanks so that I could have pieces to send out in the first place.
