Love design in all its forms? Then you’ll want to join us for today’s episode, which features an in-depth look at DesignerCon (DCON), an annual art and design convention in Anaheim, California.
Combining collectible toys and designer goods with underground art, this year’s convention included over 700 vendors, custom art shows, and live demonstrations galore. At booth 1221, NOT REAL ART’s parent organization, Crewest Studio, took part in the festivities, joined by longtime friends Man One, Anne Martin of Sugar Press Art, and Javie Lopez and OneSaints from Graffiti the City.
In this week’s episode, you’ll hear from a few of the incredible artists, creative professionals, and art lovers who attended DCON 2022. NOT REAL ART founder and host Scott “Sourdough” Power conducts a series of man-on-the-street interviews with a whole host of art world luminaries. From illustrator and Rugrats co-executive producer Dave Pressler to Adventures in Design founder Mark Brickey, you’ll hear insight and commentary straight from the mouths of DCON participants. Other interviews include artist and creative director Nina Palomba, Zully from ZooDoo Dolls, digital artist and toy creator Alex Solis, and surrealist painter Mary Jhun.
“[At DCON], you get to interface with the artists, you get to talk to them, you get to actually meet people,” says Dave Presssler I look forward to not only meeting fans and collectors, but I get to see all my industry friends too that I don’t get to see all year.”
