Our first step was to remove the former collection's background, which didn't take long. Then we posted carefully selected G-FAN covers and artwork as the background. The effect was quite striking and would be a great display all on its own!
Then Andy began placing his figures on the glass shelves. With only a few hints from Dad, he did a great job with spacing and balance, and got things looking just right. We also agreed on a high visibility spot for our Kenji Sahara photograph and signature.
We had so many leftover copies of G-FAN covers and artwork that we gave the rest to Ms. Kara Cervelli, the children's librarian--so if you stop by the exhibit, ask for your own mini-poster souvenir!
We plan to do a full write-up of our experience and submit it, along with some great photos, to G-FAN Magazine. We will post some more shots of the finished display in the near future, too. If you have the opportunity, please stop by and take a look, and let us know what you think by leaving us a comment here!
