Okay, I think I got them all!

Please forgive the poor quality of the photos....I tried to make sure each photo also shows the tag so you'll have the artist's name too.

7 pages of photos (almost 200 total) are located here:

Awesome! Wish I could've made it to the opening.

Thanks to Funny Club and Rotofugi for letting me be part of this incredible group of artists!

Dang! There is some great stuff in there I hadn't seen before, thanks for taking all of those photos! Man it must have been fun printing all those little labels.

We'll see if we can put things straight. Shipping wasn't friendly to several pieces.

If it's any consolation, your piece still looks hot. :D

hey glenn..............
i hear ya on that.............my pieces took a beating (things coming loose, things falling off, etc.) as well.....i did not even realize it till i started seeing these posted pix, and seeing figs lookin like they were gonna topple over and pieces missing in action........bottem line.....these things are just really fragile. especially when you start tacking weight onto these little things, then letting UPS get ahold of them. you can put as many FRAGILE warnings all over the box, and pay extra to have them handle it with kit gloves, but in the end, they are still gonna toss, throw, kick, and take their lunch break naps on the boxes you ship..................and these things still need to come to LA, go to 2 places in Taiwaan, then come back to the states!..............something tells me mine is coming back in a zillion pieces.
i had a couple of guardian angels in chicago, doing surgery, for which i am huge grateful, but these things are only gonna take being thrown on and off trucks for so long till they will revolt, and just not accept anymore glue.

back in the old days, when i would do a 2D piece of art on illustration board for a client, and sent it out via FDX, they would always find a way to fold the art in half!..........everytime!.........then when i got smart. and put masonite in the package, then, i really think that the drivers invented a machine to bend packages that they could not do by hand, cause they still found a way to fug it up.

anyway........rant rant rant...........these things are fragile lil creatures on a long, hard trip...........they, unfortunatly, are gonna get trashed. we can only hope that we have the likes of the Fugis to mend them, and take care of them while they are making their guest stops.

F*** FDX and UPS (and the pony express, for that matter),

I've actually had a package delivery guy (not naming names here, I gotta ship a lotta stuff) tell me that this is essentially true. I guess the lower paid droids enjoy kicking the shite out of boxes marked fragile...grrrr... :twisted:

Oh yeah, and before we condemn everyone who works for these fine companies...I know for a fact that we have at least one board regular who is employed by one of said companies...and I KNOW he's a stand-up kinda guy. :TCIMH-SmileRoto:

Hi everyone,

All the funny club stuff looks great.
Wish I could make it out to sweet home Chicago to see them all.

Thanks for the shelf space Rotofugi.
