Don’t Miss Designer Con 2011

In 2006, the Vinyl Toy Network brought together companies, designers, artists, retailers, and distributors all under one roof to showcase the world of vinyl toys. Now known as Designer Con aka D-CON, the show has grown tremendously and incorporates the worlds of plush, sculpture, apparel, print, and more into this annual art nerd convention.

Designer Con is being held this Saturday, November 5 at the Pasadena Convention Center. The exhibit hall will be packed with vendors and attendees will get to experience live paintings, goodie bags, Dr. Sketchy’s  Anti-Art School, The World’s Biggest ‘Blindbox Time’ opening, and a  LEGO Art show featuring original LEGO sculptures by Brandon Griffith.
