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.

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.

Anesthesia Vinyl Bust Launch

Anesthesia Veiled robotic lady Bust. Vinyl art collectible by Doktor A and 3D Retro. Sculpted by Bruce Whistlecraft. White Borley edition.

I am very pleased to announce the launch of my latest vinyl Art Collectible.

The classically styled bust of Anesthesia was inspired by the incredible marble work of Raffaele Monti (1818–1881).

I sculpted the original piece in 2014 as a high end art sculpture. Now 3D Retro have transformed her into a stylish and affordable addition to your home decor.

I am very proud of Anesthesia as she is the first vinyl production piece of mine that I have sculpted myself. 3D Retro have done an amazing job in retaining all the tiny details of the original. The precision of the mechanical garland around her head is reproduced spectacularly. And the gossamer nature of her veil is just as effective in vinyl as in the original.
