Hey Nubians, 

Comicbooks, Art, Toys, Food, And Some Good Brews... What More Can A Geek Girl Ask For?!

I'm super excited to learn about The Five Points Festival and I'm hoping to make an appearance this May in NYC. It's a designer toy and comic convention that will take place for 3 days starting May at Pier 36 in Manhattan’s Lower East Side this Spring. 

From what I've seen so far, there's going to be an amazingly talented lineup of artist. The event is a celebration of comic artists and writers, toy designers & more with gourmet food trucks and craft beer presented by Clutter Magazine and Midtown Comics and sponsored by Playcrafting. Can you imagine having a nice buzz while taking in so much culture and roaming around admiring and shopping for things you love?! Sounds freaken fabulous.

See more details below: 

"Enthusiasts familiar with art toys will have the chance to meet some of the world’s most iconic artists and brands like Huck Gee, Kidrobot, James Groman, Jason Freeny, Ron English of Popaganda, Simone Legno of Tokidoki, Super7, Tara McPherson, and Mighty Jaxx on the show floor, where they will be featured alongside artists from the U.S., Japan, Germany, Korea, the U.K. and elsewhere, some showcasing in NYC for the first time, and all with unique, original pieces for sale. The festival’s ‘Artist Alley’ will be an intimate, curated showcase of some of the most notable comic and toy art from mainstream and independent creators across the world’s emerging pop art scene – with participants including Annie Wu, Bryan Lee O’Malley, Cliff Chiang, Khary Randolph, Magdalene Visaggio, and Sean Gordon Murphy. Anyone who has attended mainstream art shows or comic cons will find something completely unique at Five Points – a gathering of visual innovators, rebels, creators and the misfits who are driving the future of commercial, counterculture art." 


Tickets to Five Points also include access to a gathering of some of NYC’s most outstanding craft breweries and food trucks serving during all regular Festival hours. VIP Ticket holders will also have early access privileges each day of Five Points, as well as entry to the 7th Annual Designer Toy Awards presented by Lagunitas on Friday night, the world’s premier accolade for toy artists, and an all-around excellent party!
