Episode 117 - G.I. Joe
Ep 117 G.I. JOE - I got to talk with Carson Mataxis about his Kickstarter: Collecting the art of G.I. Joe: Volumes 5 and 6 (1990-1994). Carson started five years ago, in addition to creating interactive 360 photography for 3DJoes, Carson has been photographing and scanning every piece of G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero art that he can get my hands on. He started with the 1982-1994 carded figures (which can be viewed on the Yearbook page) and then moved into documenting the vehicle boxes, catalogs and offers, books, newsletters, puzzles, posters and more. All are accessible via the print and licensed tabs at 3DJoes. Once the art is photographed and scanned, Carson digitally restores these files by removing creases, tears, price tags, handwriting and the like to create as clean an image as possible.
