Crocker-Con was a fun event last night Art Of Toys participated in at the Crocker Art Museum Artmix night! This was a mini version of Comic Con done Sacramento style. It was exciting to see so many young talented artists in the Sacramento area sharing their art and having a great time. Last year I helped as a volunteer with this event and realized after being the greeter at the door how many people I knew and wanted to have the gallery to be part of the evening.


It is wonderful for the Crocker Museum to open their doors to a younger generation and future sponsors for the Crocker and to acknowledge the artwork of these talented artists. I hope this is the springboard for a future show at the Crocker of comic book art!?

There were a few veteran comic artists as well including Eric Decetis

ED_Lost-Puppy-Small[1] (2)and Michael Dorman who could both do a show on their own.


Artist Eben Burgoon was the guest curator to this event and helped the Crocker staff with filling the space, which included several Art Of Toys artists. (Lorrain Garcia below was one)

Art Of Toys shared the art of

  2. Steve Ferrera, who is sharing his stop action art figures this month at the Puppet show.Porcupine Tribe by Steve Ferrera
  3. Oscar Ayotzintli’s creative and creepy neckware.
  4. Norleen LaBare’s comic book bead necklaces

Despite the heat the Cos players were decked out and did not seem to notice!


The ArtMix at the Crocker is different every month and are really fun well orchestrated events that we would recommend checking out! Warning you might want to check theme before going and find some fun duds for the event…Prom Night anyone?
