Kidrobot x DCON Dunny Artist Mini Series Available Online Now!
Designer Con 2018 was a blast! With the new location right near Disneyland, it was hard NOT to keep a smile on your face with all the little girls and boys hyped to meet Disney and the continuous realization that we were attending a vinyl toy convention with all our friends from J*RYU to Scott Tolleson we were happy to share Art and Design with Anaheim! Our biggest seller this year was the new 2018 DCON Dunny Mini Series that eventually ended up being a sell out item and we had to tell people to visit www.kidrobot.com. Here to say a little something extra about the Designer Con Dunny Mini Series is our good friend Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking….
DesignerCon has come a long way since it was just two guys selling toys out of the trunk of their car on the side of the freeway. Ok, it was always bigger than that, but now its astronomically huge and the best way to celebrate the largest gathering of designer toy artists in the world is with a Dunny series from Kidrobot. What, did you think we’d just send a card? Featuring a ton of creators who have made the event special, this blind box series is the perfect souvenir for any convention goer or a great collectible for those at us stuck at home. I’m one of the latter and I swore to myself I wouldn’t stay glued to social media, envious of all the good times everyone was having. We’ll see how that plays out, but I’m keeping all of my devices charged in case I feel weak.
This blind box series features designs from Chet Zar, Flat Bonnie, Jon Paul Kaiser, Paul Frank, Deph, Brandon Ragnar Johnson, Jerome Lu, Kano, Scott Tolleson, Chris Lee, and Greg Crayola Simpkins. They can be found at DesignerCon or online at www.kidrobot.com

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
