New York Comic Con 2017: Amazing Photo Gallery and Video Highlights From NYCC

I hope everyone’s experience at New York Comic Con 2017 was as awesome as mine was! It gets bigger and better each and every year.  Being a creative, I couldn’t help but feel enormously inspired to keep pushing myself forward as an artist, writer, graphic designer, entrepreneur and simply an aesthetically-driven individual who wants to make his mark and hopefully, make the world a little more pleasant.  Events such as these, makes you want to do more and BE MORE than what you already are.  My enthusiasm to create is flying high and despite some of the issues that we are dealing with in society right now, I remain optimistic that somehow we’ll find a way to make a little more beautiful, and a little less chaotic.I took some time to post some photos and put together a video, capturing some amazing cosplay, artwork, geek stuff and random moments from NYCC 2017, in which I hope that many of you will appreciate.  Just check them out below.  Special thanks to the staff, security and crew who made sure the event was organized, lines were orderly and that fans were moved through the lines with respect, care and safety for each other.  Thank you for bringing the incredible to the show at the Javits Center.  Enjoy the video and the photos, and don’t forget to let me know what you think.  Stay #WERKSpired!

The following is one of my favorite quotes made by motivational speaker and author, Les Brown.  I constantly keep this quote in the back of mind to help keep me motivated, especially when my goals are not reached as quickly as expected:
