DesignerCon is a convention that caters to the art toy and collectible community. Over the weekend, the event was held at the Anaheim Convention Center. Those who attended had the chance to celebrate all things collectibles and special appearances from Sony Pictures Animation, Medicom Toy, and more.

Sony Pictures Animation celebrated its 20th anniversary, and it had a branded stage and programming schedule featuring exclusive, interactive presentations and panels hosted by Mark Brickey from Adventures In Design. There was also the Storyboard Duel and 1:1 with Sony Pictures Animation President Kristine Belson.

Medicom Toy, a Japanese-based company, released the 2022 DCON Artist Pack including pieces from Doktor A, The Obanoth (Hannah Webb), Shag, Nina Polamba, and Bobby Hundreds.

King Saladeen 100% was available as a gift for VIP ticket holders, with King Saladeen signing on Sunday.

DesignerCon’s featured artist of 2022 is Persue, a San Diego local. He brings his style from the billboards to the 9 unique designs inspired by the 80s and 90s retro video games. The artist’s edition of BunnyKitty in the City was also released, which is the sequel to his first book following his characters.

Other artists were present including The London Police, Nina Palomba, Allison Bambat, Alex Pardee, Tara McPherson, Gary Baseman, and GoopMassta. Vendors included Punk Drunkers, CAMO Works, Popposition Press, DKE Toys, and Threadless.
