…Of All Ages is presented by DKE Toys. Dov and Sarah Jo have produced several art shows together including: The Vader Project, Spoonful of Star Wars, STUFFED: a plush food show, The Custom Yoka Show, and the prequel to …Of All Ages, Skin Deep, by Scott Wilkowski.
Scott Wilkowski is a Wisconsin-based artist and sculptor. He perfected the process he used to produce …Of All Ages for The Custom Yoka Show, which premiered at Designer Con in 2009. His piece was the first to sell and was so popular it became a special edition with new pieces showing and selling out at each of the seven stops on The Custom Yoka Show US gallery tour. The pieces he created in collaboration with designer toy creator JAMUNGO for San Diego Comic-Con in 2010 and 2011 were also instant sell-outs. In 2011 Scott came up with Skin Deep featuring 6 “infected” designer toys. Skin Deep showed at Designer Con and later traveled to Lulubell Toy Bodega and Screaming Sky Gallery. Scott works as a professional sculptor and has done sculpting work for Sideshow Collectibles, McFarlane Toys, Disney and Sanrio. www.scottwilkowski.com
