In Memoriam: Andrew Weirnicki
Andrew Wiernicki, age 48 of Taunton, MA, died Tuesday Nov 25, 2008 at his home in Taunton after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Andrew was a talented, modest, and quiet man who loved coming up with that next cool sculpt. He loved making his favorite comic book characters spring to life in clay by way of his gifted hands.

I am thankful to have met Andrew and although his inital 15" statue prototype was stolen from us (by an unnamed third party) it was a surreal honor when I first saw our character Ja'Laar carved out in the round twice as both the 15" statue as well as a mini-bust.

We will miss you dearly, Andrew. View Andrew's full obituary here.

Slip Under the Covers with C.C. Cowan!
When author/actor C.C. Cowan chose us as his main design firm we had no idea that we'd be designing covers for some of his hottest titles. So now two of his three websites are 'live' and his main site features the following covers designed by Andrew J. LoVuolo: All Things Amplified, Life: Through My Eyes, Never Say Love, Surprise I'm Home, and When A Man Cries.

Also keep an eye out for his children's book series Amanda's Amazing Adventures for which we designed the logo, website, and the colorful cover art drawn by Abdul Rashid and colored by Erik Korsgaard!

Get Lost – in 'Andrew's Attic'!
We're fans and collectors just like you and that means picking and choosing what collectibles we've got room for and which ones need to find a new home. Rather than mess with auctions we've decided to expand our online store to include rare limited items that we don't have room for and that you might be hunting down for our own collections! We affectionately call this expansion – Andrew's Attic.
