Explore Designer Toys and More at DesignerCon 2017
October 27, 2017
Okay, Guys—and now for something completely different! It is almost November and that means Designer Con is just around the corner. If you are in the greater Los Angeles area, you want to attend and, even if you aren’t, this is an event and genre you want to familiarize yourself with.
“Designer Con is an annual art and design convention that smashes together collectible toys and designer apparel with urban, underground and pop art."
This is my favorite convention and takes place once a year at the Pasadena Convention Center. If you aren’t familiar with Designer toys, you SHOULD be! Some of the most creative, innovative art today is happening in this medium. The New York Times recently published an article titled, “Is it a Toy, Is it Art? Everyone Agrees It’s a Collectible."
Art toys are everywhere—museums, galleries, book stores, comic shops—and have a huge fan base and rabid followers. If you want more information, check out Clutter Magazine, Kidrobot, Funko Toys, and artists like Kaws, Frank Kozik, and Gary Baseman.
You can even join in the fun and make your own. Kidrobot produces DIY blank vinyl figure kits. They are solid white, primed and ready to go. All that you need is your imagination. Have Fun!
