We previously profiled artist David Foox in his post-apocalyptic studio in an abandoned office floor high above Wall Street and hung out with him at the new studio of celebrity photographer, Patrick McMullan. This past weekend Foox made a pit stop at New York Comic Con. Here’s what we chatted about:

Untapped: So Foox, What makes New York’s ComicCon unique?

Foox: NYCC is New York’s answer to the venerable SDCC (San Diego Comic Con). However as politics and infighting has ruined SDCC, NYCC seems unstoppable.  I am so lucky to be included in the festivities here at NYCC. This year’s ComicCon is bigger badder and more fun than anything I have done before.  It’s also been a funny Comic Con so far. It’s tremendously understaffed at the Javits and has become a free for all (or FFA as they say in gaming speak) and people are just bum rushing the entrance with or without tickets and no one cares. It’s the “occupy wall street” of the comic book world.  This is by far the largest NYCC New York has ever seen.

Untapped: Where are you exhibiting here and offline?

Foox: You can find my art here at Metro Orange and Tenacious Toys here and online at Followpropaganda.com,  Organ-donors.us and Foox-u.com/blog. There’s also a limited edition run of my Mao Money at 1xrun.

Untapped; What’s up with you next?

Foox: I’m not satisfied with any of the “normal” steps artists take to “make it” and instead I am forging my own path. I want to exhibit my golden bars with Sumerian Tablets scrawled on the back and I wanna do this soon.

  3. Stormer says:

    i would have loved to be there. Foox you are truly an amazing artist.

  4. Asher Jay says:

    Foox and I recently showed at the William Bennett Gallery in Soho together, and I have to say it is absolutely delightful to see him take his organ dolls to new audiences. It is a good thing he is doing, making a complex topic such as organ donation participatory and comprehensible. For those who are curious about our show together: http://newyork.timeout.com/arts-culture/dance/1786191/ashley-bouder. Cheers Foox, glad you are applying yourself.

    Lovely and amazing. FOOX seems like a volcano of effortless and witty creativity. I seriously desire to own the upcoming Sumerian inscribed gold infused pieces…you just don’t see enough cuneiform these days!xo

  6. Howard says:

    “Arts in healthcare is a diverse, multidisciplinary field dedicated to transforming the healthcare experience by connecting people with the power of the arts at key moments in their lives.”

    The backstory behind the organ donors is a poignant and moving tale. As a result, I have been a huge fan of FOOX for a long time, and I have been incredibly thankful for FOOX as he continues to share his remarkable work with families supported by MarbleRoad. FOOX has a big heart, and we need more artists like him out there promoting organ donation, wellness, and philanthropy.

  7. Good to see ya again, sir. Designer Con for you?

  8. Jack says:

    So glad I snagged a print from 1xrun before they were gone. Can we look forward to some more work coming soon? Meeting Mr Foox was a real highlight of my nycc experience. Thank you Foox and thank you nycc and thank you untapped for bringing the best of New York forward!

  9. Michael P. Gusek says:

    As usual, Foox comes through with his organ donor vinyls!!! Have any of those Templars left? What I wouldn’t do for one of those.

  10. JShana says:

    NYCC was the perfect venue for FOOX to showcase his work. It’s supercool, quirky art with a purpose that’s meaningful, off-the-cuff and always draws you in. I’m in love with the FOOX classic organ donor dolls but am very excited about all of his new mod work. Your creativity is absolutely boundless. Gooooo FOOX!!!

    Ohhh, how i’d missed those little cute Organ Donors! A+++ Mr Foox
