Once again it’s time to head to sunny Pasadena for Designer Con, the largest “Art-Toy” and “Art Collectibles” show in the USA. This year there will be over 350 vendors and 150 artists at the show.

I will be there again on booth number 114 right inside the main door of the Ballroom (the same place as last year). This year I will have some unique custom toys available, an expanded range of Copper Creeps, prints, pins and a selection of Mechtorian toys and merchandise.

Please do drop buy and say hello. I will be happy to sign and doodle for you in you bring something along.

This is a two day event on November the 19th and 20th.
Tickets and a helpful interactive floor-plan are available now on their website.

I will also be part of their exciting Pin Scavenger Hunt. Visit the six booths involved and purchase a pin from each booth to get the FREE Designer Con pin at the end. Only 100 of each pin are available so don’t hang about.
So yes, this does mean a new Mechtorian pin. (see picture below.)

Boglin Custom Show

cg_boglins_2016_flyer

I am pleased to say I was invited to participate in the re-launch of Boglins.
This classic line of 1980’s toys has been reworked and reintroduced by Clutter with original creator Tim Clarke.

As someone who worked on the original line of Mini Boglins back then it has been fun revisiting these mischievous little characters and messing with them.
You can see all the artist’s versions at the Clutter Gallery from Nov 12th to Dec 2nd. Drop them an email to get on their previews list if you may be interested in making a purchase.
