Fan Expo returns to Donald E. Stephens Convention Center August 10-13. As always, I will be “On the Beat' covering all the pop culture fun.
As part of my coverage, today I am highlighting one of the great vendors offering cool creations. After my coverage partner Tony Feddeler alerted me to the work Sean Engelbreit does with dice, I wanted to learn more and to share it. That interview is at On the Beat With Sean Engelbreit.
Sean discussed how he got started creating dice, challenges, functionality versus collectability and more. Of course, he also discussed his booth and what he wants to do at Fan Expo.
I had never really given much thought to dice, thinking they were mere generic elements in games. After talking to Sean, I realized how wrong I was. Like anything else, dice can be an expression of one's personality. They can also be vanity pieces, aesthetic wonders and more. In other words, they can become whatever you want and Sean is the person to make your dice dreams become a reality.
Initially, he sent some pictures of his creations. Then I checked more on his Etsy shop and social media pages. I was blown away at the beauty, detail, craftsmanship and originality I saw. I saw so many styles and designs. They are so cool, I would have trouble using them. I would want to keep them as art pieces.
After talking to Sean, I look forward to meeting him at Fan Expo and seeing all of his work. I also think Sean will have a few new surprise pieces for the show.
Check out Sean on social media and on Etsy. Also, check him in person at Fan Expo. Go to FanExpoHQ.com for more info and scheduling.
