Dear Readers,
Normally when I post items, they are about my clients. The Devil’s Candy Store falls into two categories – I am a co-founder of this company, and I do their publicity/marketing. What is The Devil’s Candy Store, or for the sake of brevity, TDCS? TDCS is a design studio where we creative “Exotic Contraband from Impossible Worlds.” This means we develop collectibles for discerning collectors in the sci-fi, fantasy and horror worlds. Our guiding mantra is to “Do Cool Things with Cool PEOPLE.” TDCS is a group of the most amazing fine artists, concept artists, writers, and creatives – all Diablos in their own unique ways. Most of us can be found yearly at San Diego Comic-Con, if you’d like to observe use diablos behaving in our own wacky habitat. Dive in – the water’s fine!

–Devilishly yours,
Deviled Ham Denise

Felix has more than 15 years of experience in the entertainment industry, working in comics, book covers, videogame projects and film.

To date, the high-end collectibles they’ve developed include a one-of-a-kind, gold-plated and bejeweled “Madame Isis” vampire-killing sword based on NY Times best-selling author L.A. Banks’ Vampire Huntress novels, and a concept art book based on the same 12-volume series.

TDCS artist, Craig Elliott, was honored with a Spectrum Gold Award (art direction by Charlie Athanas) for his painting in the TDCS concept art book, “Exotic Contraband: L.A. Banks’ The Vampire Huntress Legend”, launched at San Diego Comic-Con 2008.
