Designer Con is an event for designers to show off their stuff and happened over the weekend. There are some garish monsters you’d expect to find in a tacky souvenir shop or even your Happy Meal, but there’s also some excellent art.
DrilOne turned a minion into a gas-masked worker. I can just imagine Gru sending this poor minion on a mission to reconstruct a rusty spacecraft.
Carson Catlin create reticulated custom toys. I love the design and contrasting colours.
Patrick Ballesteros has a really fantastic cartoon style and chooses great subject matter.
Jungle Madness (a.k.a. WuzOne) also creates great toy customs, what I really like is how in addition he displays them in their full 3-dimensions on canvas.
