Join us Saturday, July 1, 11am-1pm for a very special event - a Q&A and signing with Martellus Bennett celebrating the release of his new vinyl art toy, Skydiver McGuire!
Bennett is probably best known in Chicago for his three standout seasons as a tight end with the Chicago Bears, but he’s also an accomplished creative entrepreneur, having founded his own production company, The Imagination Agency, focused on children’s literature, entertainment and education.
Joining Bennett for the event and moderating the Q&A will be award-winning writer, illustrator and cartoonist Skottie Young.
Skydiver McGuire is a secret agent stationed at a theme park called "MartyLand" working undercover for the T.I.A (The Imagination Agency) in search for the lost imaginations of children all over the world that have been stolen by the Suits. An original creation by Martellus Bennett, based on his alter ego, McGuire has been produced as a 10-inch tall vinyl figure in five different colors, each an edition of just 100 pieces. The Skydiver McGuire figures will be available to purchase during the event for $165 each — a limited quantity of all five colors will be on hand for the event.
In addition to the Q&A and signing, DJ Sean Doe will be spinning all morning long, plus we’ll have snacks and beverages for all. We hope to see you there!
