Just throwing this up, Poster I shot the other night – with some experimentation. Trying out a new Fog Machine, Gels (on Alien Bees), Lightpainting, all comped into one piece.
It’s a bit of a mess – but for the future, I know what to fix now

I decided a few months back – I wanted to release an e-zine (since our blog is so random & our facebook page is even more random) – i set March 1st as the release date (didn’t really tell anyone – in case it didn’t happen but that was my goal)
I believe I have almost everything in order for it ; This has the READERS RIDES section – in it (back when i asked everyone for pictures (keep sending stuff in!!) – that i posted (in the order of how i received the e-mails); if you car is not posted yet – it WILL BE 110%.
We’ll have more stuff in the coming months, more girls, more cars, more features, more everything; this is just our first month – hopefully everyone enjoys it – and (yes i will get better at writing – photography is my strong point haha)
(ps: the new stickers will be released in a day or two!)

More on my FLICKR!
Welcome to MegaCon 2012! We’re absolutely impressed with the tremendous growth since last year’s Convention; Not only did it seem we had more room to play at the Orange County Convention Center here in Orlando, Florida, but the guest list was swollen with more than plenty of the entertainment industry’s hottest talents! Three days of this Convention were simply not enough to absorb the action going on under this roof!
MegaCon is well established as the largest comic book, anime, sci-fi and fantasy convention in the South East of the United States. This annual event is recommended for EVERYONE. This year’s MegaCon was extraordinary and definitely not worth missing.
Vendors flourished across the floor with amazing collectibles and trademark iconic items with, as cliché as it sounds, ‘something for everybody’! From rare key comic books, memorabilia, and clothing to imported candy, anime, and costume props.
MegaCon always has had a great lineup of floor actors, artists and writers, but this year seemed to host plenty more than the previous year, which made great for attendees to interact with their favorite talents and creators. The enormous list included world-renowned writers and artists such as David Finch and J. Scott Campbell, growing stars like Lauren Cohan (Walking Dead), as well as up-and-coming writer Ryan Sohmers (Gutters) and local superhero squad Fierce Comics!
Deep within the penciled jungles of the artist alley, you could find yourself falling in love with original content from artists of anime, industry leading comic art, independent creators, or just general real life tributes of beautiful people.
The panels set up at MegaCon were very central themed and amazing. One of our favorites was ‘DC Comics: The New 52’, in which DC’s Co-Publisher Dan Didio led a discussion on the new changes which brought DC Comics to the head of the industry last year! Other attending panelists included Greg Capullo, Tony Bedard, and Jimmy Palmiotti. During the finale, fans rushed the stage to shake hands and share words with the guests! Coincidentally just outside the room, a DC Comics themed photoshoot was happening in which Dan Didio joined fellow DC veteran George Perez.
Another favorite panel was the ‘Q & A with Legendary Stan Lee’. Jimmy Palmiotti joined Stan Lee at his request in assisting with moderating, even though Stan “The Man” could handle it well all by himself! The room was very quiet for most of the time while Stan spoke with answers from his heart. His jokes broke the silence many times to ease the tension of everyone hanging on to his words. Stan recently launched his official website which has constant updates: The Real Stan Lee.
And what about the people? Many attendees dressed up in costume play (“cosplay”) to pay homage to their favorite characters and share their joy and passion in a walking visual display. You can’t help but smile and ask for someone to take a picture with you, to later share with your family and friends on what an awesome event this was!
As we said before if you weren’t here, you simply MISSED OUT… but we’ve got you covered!

State of Stance has teamed up with UTI, Scion, Meguiar’s, and Tjin Edition to bring to us the TunerLife Tour 2012. Yesterday, February 11th, marked the first day and official launch of the 5-city tour expected to bring out many vendors, hundreds of cars, and most importantly thousands of fans! The next stops, in chronological order, will be Dallas, Houston, Boston and Chicago. The event itself couldn’t have been on a better day in Florida: mid 60′s and full, sunny skies just before the state being hit with a cold front. You couldn’t help but feel overcrowded when trying to park in the main show area, even though outside overflow had plenty of different spots and still showcased many beautiful cars that came late. Cars came as early as 8:00am when the show was scheduled to begin at 10:00am. This was easily one of the biggest events of the year so far with many cars from various scenes such as VIP, domestic, and Because Racecar status.
