Designer Con Online

This year due to the ongoing pandemic Designer Con is going online in a state of the art Virtual event at PopShop Live.

I will be streaming direct from my studio in the UK and joining several hundred other Dcon vendors in this epic live convention event.

Download the Popshop Live App for your iOS device or use a desktop or mobile browser to set up a Popshop account so you can join the fun.

You will also need to buy a ticket for the weekend from Designercon Live. To allow you secure access to the whole event within the DCon virtual area.

I will be selling Mechtorian toys and original works as well as chatting and generally hanging out for the duration of the event. Though due to time zone differences I will be streaming through the night in the UK. So may not make it right through to the end of each day.

I will also have a new Mechtorian painting to unveil. Which will be available to purchase.

Buster-call at Complex Con

Above is my piece “Dr. Anthony T. Chopper”.

The sculpture will be on show at Complex Con in Long Beach California on the 2nd – 4th November.

Pay him a visit and see lots more of the awesome art from the project at the Bustercall booth (A9) at the Long Beach Convention Center this coming weekend.

Designer Toy Award

Dumbfounded!
Utterly speechless…

I had not an inkling that I would win this.
Not with such a strong line up of such amazingly talented finalists as this year had.

It was a wonderful surprise to even be nominated.
But to win…….
Still hasn’t sunk in..

Thank you so much to those on the panel that put me forward and who choose the outcome.
It really is humbling to be recognized by your peers in such a way.

To know that all that work, obsessiveness, and worry do add up to something that touches people is truly uplifting.

Thank you to all my collectors, fans and followers.
I love what I do and because of you I can do it for living.
Support my family and create my dreams.. it doesn’t get much better that that..

Reginald Flatfoot

Reggie loves a good starched collar!
The stiffer the better!
So firm it rubs the top layer of paint off his neck and polishes his metal to a shine.
It hurts like hell….
But he also loves a stiff upper lip.

Bradley Pickles

Bradley likes to observe the world.
He sits in the park and soaks up the bustle of life around him.
The ebb and flow,
The chitter and clatter,
The nuts and blots of it all.
One day he may write a book about what he has witnessed.
But for now he is quite happy to just observe.

Bradley will be available to purchase from my Booth at ToyconUK this weekend in London for £300.
