Dragon Con 2010 Exclusive

Here is the first picture of my Dragon Con exclusive for this year. Its a laser etched wooden Yoyo.

This is the test burn. But the actual YoYo will be just the same. Each piece will be hand numbered and signed too and carries the Dragon Con logo on the back as well as the logo of the Steve Brown Gallery who produced this lovely object for me.
This is not part of their ongoing YoYo artist series but is made in just the same way. My release with them sold out in minutes so I decided to do this second YoYo to let other people have a chance to get hold of one.
This edition run will be only 50 pieces. Available at Dragon Con.

The unadorned yo-yos themselves are a work of art. Made in the United States and turned from a single piece of Hard Rock Maple, they are made in the traditional fashion of yo-yos from the 1920s. While most modern yo-yos are made of high-impact plastic or aircraft-grade aluminum, these wooden yo-yos are meant to evoke a simpler time in American history. The yo-yo is the second-oldest toy in the world and still one of the most popular; it’s with this heritage in mind that these wooden yo-yos were chosen.
