1 Day Only!   Saturday, November 20,2010   10am – 5pm

Pasadena Convention Center, 300 East Green Street, Pasadena CA 91101


This special exhibition of over 100 original paintings by artist Bwana Spoons features portraits of vintage Star Wars™ action figures done in the artist’s signature style. Bright colors, rainbows, humor and fart jokes come though in what Bwana calls, “an awesome dream project.” Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys commissioned Bwana Spoons to reinterpret each vintage Kenner Star Wars™ action figure from the original line 1977-1985.

These creative interpretations include not only the popular figures but also variations that every Star Wars fan will love! The show will be on display for one day only at DesignerCon, an art and design convention that smashes together collectible toys and designer apparel with urban, underground and pop art. For more information on DesignerCon visit www.designercon.com

Spoonful of Star Wars™ is produced by DKE Toys and is from the collection of Dov Kelemer & Sarah Jo Marks. Dov and Sarah Jo have produced several art shows together including; The Vader Project, STUFFED, a plush food show and The Custom Yoka Show.
