Artist and illustrator Kevin Tong somehow manages to instill a sense of kinetic ethereal energy to all his artwork. They often provoke a sense of halted motion, as if time is standing still in the middle of a tornado. His work has appeared on the Atlas Obscura Travel Calendar, on gig prints, in a series of Infographic prints and on numerous personal art prints. This will be Tong’s eighth time exhibiting at San Diego Comic-Con and you can find him all weekend at booth #933.
As part of an initiative to eliminate single-use plastics, Tong will not be offering plastic bags for larger posters. For no additional cost, you can have your purchases rolled up in kraft paper and he encourages people to bring their own plastic bags or cardboard tubes. For the smaller prints, Tong will offer paper envelopes for protection.
All items will be on sale starting on Preview Night and will remain on sale throughout SDCC or as long as supplies last.
