What do Swarovski crystals and Hello Kitty have in common? What will Alex Ross’ booth look like at Comic-Con? How little sleep am I getting tonight? Find the answers to at least some of these questions in this edition of Under the Tents.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- One of our new favorite artists, Henry Liao, showed off his original plush toy Rockusagi. It’s available in limited quantities at Artists Alley FF-17. Liao will also have prints of Mei from My Neighbor Totoro cosplaying as characters from other Hayao Miyazaki masterpieces.
