Mattel: An Art Tribute to 70 Years Of Toys - Opening Reception Recap!

Mattel: An Art Tribute To 70 Years Of Toys opened Friday Aug 14th at Gallery1988 West in LA. It was a very nostalgic presentation of official artwork curated by the super talented artist Dave Perillo . I feel honored to be among the selected artists chosen for this show. My submission "Clawtron" , a Fisher Price Adventure People inspired piece, proved to have many fans! I had no idea where he would fall on people's memory spectrum. For me, He will forever be connected to the Star Wars franchise. I had him in my toy box along with all my other reject cantina aliens. Clawtron was even cool enough to rub shoulders with Darth Vader on some adventure occasions (all my doing, mind you).  So anyways I wanted to share some pictures from the night. Enjoy! -Nathan
