DesignerCon 2021 Ahead

DesignerCon is back this weekend and we have a lot of stuff to look forward too. It's an art, toy and collectible show that was sadly only online last year. And through an app we really couldn't master. Oh, Popshop Live, what were you?
There's gonna be so much to see at the show and IN PERSON. And some of our fav artists like Junko Mizuno will have their latest work for you to put up at the home or office or home office. Here's our last preview we've collected from over the net, before it all starts this Friday. 
Take your time at Dcon. We've gone there and found gems that are sitting at booths without finding any evidence online of them being there. What's great is finding a shirt of vinyl toy you had no idea would even be there. It's truly one of our favorites and we couldn't be more glad it's back.
*If you're going, remember, just eat food somewhere else, it'll be better anywhere but the convention center and the food trucks. The food options nearby remain so crappy, ugh. Just have a nice lunch by getting in an drive sharing app or if you can by walking there. If you're carrying bags of bought items stow'em in your car before you go.

We'd also suggest following Toysrevil, which is going over all the new toys to get from the show.
