One of the reasons that Fan Expo was so amazing for me was the people. Specifically the other Toronto based toy makers I met in Artist Alley!
First off is Elaine and Paolo of GreatBeard. They are pretty much in the same boat as me. Their company is just getting started, they make everything themselves, and their attention to quality and detail is incredible. Their website is pretty much fully operational as well which is making me jealous. Elaine has been great with spearheading some group projects and meet ups. Her passion is infectious. I didn’t think I could get even more excited about the future, but meeting them has done just that.
