Hello Press and Friends,

DKE Toys at DesignerCon 2021 at the Anaheim Convention Center

November 12-14 2021
An In-Person event!!

DKE Toys will be exhibiting at DesignerCon 2021, an in-person event, November 12-14. The DKE Toys booth (#1322) will be set up at the Anaheim Convention Center. No DKE warehouse, no Zoom, just Dov back in the booth.

This is DKE's first in-person convention in 2 years! In an effort to not alienate our online customer base that we have cultivated over these past 2 years because of COVID, we are offering all exclusives for sale online FIRST at NOON PACIFIC on Friday November 5th. Anything not sold out may be temporarily taken off the site to go to the live show starting on November 12th. And anything left over will go back on the site when we return.

With each qualifying purchase and while supplies last customers will receive a "fine" silk-screened Killer Bootlegs tote bag designed for DKE by Killer Bootlegs himself, Peter Goral, and featuring art by Zack Shereck. Edition limited to 1000.

DKE will have over 40 exclusive releases! (Artist list below.) In addition we have two mini art shows. Ghoul's Chain Gang Bang by Ghoul Of Gabba, a series of 30 hand painted mug shots featuring his signature colorful reinterpretations. And, Remember When by Nick C Kirk. Nick's series of 10 acrylic on wood panel recreations of mint on card vintage figures.

Additionally, every year DesignerCon organizes events and aesthetics around an important pop-culture theme. For this edition of DCON, the expo celebrates Gold Timey: The Golden Age of Animation with an art show, curated by Carmen "Jane Dope" Acosta. DKE Toys was asked to curate a selection of hand made action figure editions to be included in the main art show, featuring characters from 1920s Silver Screen. Over 30 artists created small editions. Full press release to follow.

Email announcements will follow over the next week.

Behind the scenes and "making of" images are always at our Flickr with additional folders for all previous shows and releases.

Dov Kelemer is available for interviews. We are also happy to facilitate getting you in touch with any artists for interviews as well. Thanks in advance for your coverage and support!
