Comic Artists Use 3D Printing to Stand Out at This Year’s New York Comic Con

With well over 150,000 attendees, last weekend’s New York Comic Con is one of the largest comic book and pop culture conventions in the country. The NYCC took over the entirety of the massive NYC Javits Convention Center’s 840,000 square feet of exhibit space and meeting rooms, which occupy a full six city blocks. At over 80,000 square feet and occupied by 450 artists, even the convention’s Artist Alley held in the North Pavilion was massive. As you would expect, it isn’t easy for an artist to stand out in a place that large with a crowd that huge.

But this year three of the independent artists trying to stand out from the pack had a little help thanks to 3D printing. They teamed up with 3D Printing 4 Everyone (3DP4E) and their new comic art-orientated 3D printing service 3DArtGeeks.com to bring their two-dimensional artwork into the third dimension. 3DArtGeeks is a service that offers comic book and other traditional artists the ability to turn their artwork into 3D statues that can be printed in full-color sandstone.
