Artist and illustrator Kevin Tong somehow manages to infuse a sense of kinetic ethereal energy into all of his artwork. They often cause a feeling of stopped motion, as if time has stopped in the middle of a tornado. His work has appeared on the Atlas Obscura travel calendar, concert prints, a series of infographic prints, and numerous personal art prints. This will be Tong’s eighth time exhibiting at San Diego Comic-Con and you can find him all weekend at booth #933.

As part of an initiative to eliminate single-use plastics, Tong will not be offering plastic bags for larger displays. At no extra cost, you can have your purchases wrapped in kraft paper and he encourages people to bring their own plastic bags or cardboard tubes. For smaller runs, Tong will offer paper envelopes for protection.

All items will be on sale starting on preview night and will remain on sale throughout SDCC or while supplies last.

Let’s take a look at the new items from Kevin Tongs:

Based on the 2011 Nicolas Winding Refn film, these Conduct Screen printed posters are officially authorized and approved. They have never been screen-printed before and will premiere at San Diego Comic-Con. Each version measures 24″ x 36″ with metallic inks. The regular version is a 60 edition and will cost $90. The variant edition is limited to 30 copies and will cost $120.


This Arecibo Fine Art Giclee Print is a true San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, it will never be sold outside of the convention. This 18″ x 24″ print, based on Tong’s original idea, is a very small edition of 40 and has a price tag of $85.

Nymph, Wendigo and Orbital Decay Typographic Prints are created using a historic printing method that presses the ink from the plates onto the paper resulting in very tactile and delicate indentations in black and gold. Each print is 9″ x 12″ on thick card stock and limited to just 60 copies.

Debuting at San Diego Comic-Con, this nifty original illustration has been recreated as both a pin and a t-shirt. The Pop Knife hard enamel pin has a polished, scratch-resistant surface. At just over 1″ wide, the brooch comes housed in matchbook-style packaging with silver foil printing for $15. The Knife Pop t-shirt is printed on Bella Canvas Triblend Heather Black using a soft ink method resulting in what will become your new favorite t-shirt in no time. Available in sizes S through XXL for $30.

Be sure to visit Kevin Tong’s booth, #933, for all these new San Diego Comic-Con merchandise, as well as a selection of his older work.
