Boing Boing reader Michael Matise shot some wonderful photographs of miniatures and models at New York Comic-Con 2013, and shared them in the Boing Boing Flickr Pool. A few are below. Here's the whole set. Michael tells us more about the photos below.
These photos were taken at the New York ComicCon on Sunday, October 13, 2013. It was our first visit to Comicon and yes, we were overwhelmed! I wanted to photograph the event but avoid the "typical" costumed-attendee shots that, while extremely interesting and entertaining, are, well, typical. The images taken here focus mainly on original miniature art pieces displayed at the show. The attention to detail and talent of the artists that produced these pieces are amazing.
All shots were taken on a Nikon D600 using a AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED lens and processed as jpgs in Adobe Photoshop CS6. The resolution of the uploaded images was reduced by 50%.

Briggs Land is a complex, intelligent crime drama that is so American at its core, but a slice of America we rarely get to see. It would be topical at any time, but in our current political climate, it’s frighteningly relevant.
Saga is Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ magnificent, visually stunning, adventurous, funny, raunchy, complex and provocative graphic novel; the first six volumes of collected comics moved from strength to strength, fleshing out a universe that was simultaneously surreal and deadly serious, where cute characters could have deadly-serious lives: now, with volume 7, Staples and Vaughan continue their unbroken streak of brilliance.
Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
