Designer Con UK

This weekend the 3rd and 4th of September Once again sees the amazing Designer Con UK decent on Excel in London.
And I will be vending!

This year I was given the honour of designing the event passes so everyone present will be wearing a piece of Mechtorian artwork around their neck. Which is a fun idea.

On my booth (No.68) I will have a selection of new customised toy pieces available. As well as a selection of toys and merchandise. See the image on the previous post for the exclusive mini edition “Elwood Barker”. Only 6 of these were created.

I am always happy to chat, answer questions and sign and doodle on things you bring along.

And this year I will also be up on the main stage as one of the featured artists at the convention.
My slot is 3.30-4pm on Saturday. So bring any questions you have along with you.

You can purchase tickets direct online here…

Blinky Alsop DCon London Edition

The Blinky Allsop Teal hand-painted edition was created exclusively for Designer Con London.

An industrious and mischievous little fellow.

Though he has never really got to grips with Macramé.

Each figure in this super limited edition of only 10 is hand finished and painted by Doktor A.
This polyurethane resin Mechtorian figure stands 2.5″.
And comes with a cast metal winding key.

Each is signed, numbered and dated on the underside.

Tall Titfers

A new range of resin mini figures.

Tit for tat – Hat.
Get ahead! Get a hat! In this case literally.
In Mechtoria any object from a building to an item of clothing may in fact be a sentient person with their own opinions and desires.
So putting together a harmonious outfit may take on an entirely different meaning.

For Designer Con I have created a very limited hand painted edition of just 10 pieces of each of the three new Tall Titfer characters.

Each figure comes with a real solid cast metal key.

There is the Teal Topper, Emerald Bowler and Red Fez.

Each will be only $50.

A small number will be available on Preview night.
The rest will be open for sale at the main door time.

Any remaining after the show will be offered online.
