Answers to our 5 Geeky Questions

Tell us about the geeky goodness you’ll be bringing to the next Geekery Market! We specialize in nostalgic and geek crossovers.
From a build your own poster Pokemon dungeon set, Final Fantasy 14 characters with their Pokemon, to playmats for Digimon and One Piece. As well as an array of original works based on our Dungeons and Dragons group.

How did you get started doing what you do?Art and drawing for geeky things I love has been something I’ve been doing since I was a kid, but I really got stated making a living out of it when a local Game Shop we frequented mentioned wanting to get more items made by locals, I had been working on some designs for some personal use stuff and figured why not share it with others.

What’s an item you are bringing that you are really excited about? I’m so excited to bring and share my build your own Pokemon poster. It’s such a fun concept and really calls back to old stickerbooks I got when I was younger that let you build a screen how you wanted

What else would you like everyone to know about your wares? We strive to bring things that not only can you display but use. Durable keychains, stitched edges on the playmats, protective water proofing on the stickers, we want you to be able to use these, without the worry about messing them up!

What’s your favorite holiday story? I’m the biggest sucker for Nightmare Before Christmas, Halloween has always been my favorite holiday and something about that one is just classic!
