And the dust has settled...
First, let me give a huge thank you to everyone that attended the "11/10" show, everyone that flew in from out of country, fought online to purchase something, drove hours, or came out and just stood in line. Even though we had a few hiccups, the show was a success. I do believe we sold out of everything. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I wouldn't be where I am today without the support and adoration of my friends, fans, colleagues and collectors. Truly, Thank you. Now onto the press! The wonderfully talented Beast Brothers edited this wonderful video of the event.:

And finally, the official press release:
"Through the years artist Huck Gee has created original and awe inspiring 3D figures which sell out almost immediately through his website. He creates these unique and lovable characters in sets of 10, each individually numbered. But what nobody knew is that for each set of 10 figures he made, he also made one more and numbered it “11/10″. For the first time ever, every 11/10 piece was displayed and available for sale, almost 50 pieces in total. Fans had just one last chance to see them in person and get their hands on figures that sold out years ago.
11/10 was not only feature retrospective and new works, it was also the debut release of Huck’s first full length art book “The Art of Huck Gee”. Published by Presto Publishing and not scheduled to hit shelves till January 1st, 2012; just 200 collectors cover copies were available at the event.
And as if that wasn’t enough, 11/10 was also the official release of the extremely limited “Kabuki and Kitsune” Dunny 2-Pack by toy creator heavyweights Kidrobot. Inspired by Huck Gee’s Gold Life Dunny Series which sold out in record time, these two 3-inch Dunnys were limited to only 200 pieces and were exclusively available at the event.
11/10 saw large crowds of fans over it’s 3-day affair at Toy Art Gallery. Thursday, November 10th at 7pm marked the official opening which ended Sunday, November 13th with a completely sold out show.
Huck Gee would like to thank all of his fans that came out to see this special once-in-a-lifetime event."
