Today is a big day as it marks the official end my Toy Wars 2013 battle with Jon Stolarski. Sure, I will still take some photos of toys, particularly in two weeks when I am in Arizona. However, as Jon and I are hoping to put a book together in time for Christmas, I must now “dump” the last of my images that I have held onto.
As I’ve said a few times, this “war” was never really about besting one another, but pushing our creativity and skills further. There is a bit of a solemn feeling as I bring this year to an end. I’ve learned a lot thanks to watching Jon work in his studio, talking to people about my art, and just lugging toys to states such as Colorado, Utah, Indiana, Georgia, and Arizona. What a crazy great year for fun and experimenting!
Here is to hoping that 2014 sees yet another battle, and maybe another participant or two. Until then, I sincerely thank Jon Stolarski for helping to make this year the most fun I have ever had photographically. Keep rockin’ dude!
Be excellent to one another!
