It’s about that time of year! Each November since 2005 when it started as “VTN” (Vinyl toy network,) Designer Con was a place where artists of all types of gifts came together to celebrate their craft! This year, due to exponential growth and attendance, Designer con 2018 has moved from its long time home in Pasadena to the Anaheim Convention Center and over 7,000 VIPS paying money to be the first of the first to open the doors. Working closely with our good friend (and the man behind the curtain for DCON itself,) Ben Goretsky we have curated a 11 artist series to honor those who have been a part of or enjoyed Designer Con for years!
Keep an eye out as we release a new artist and character each day leading up to the final release on Friday, November 16th at the Kidrobot booth #2010 or online at www.kidrobot.com at 10:00am MST.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj on release of The Rejects - Dark Chocolate Edition on Kidrobot.com. "I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
