ToyConUK 2014

So ToyConUK is over for another year. Sadly I don’t have any pics of the whole convention for you this year as I spent most of the time at my stand. But here are a few pics of the customs I had on show.

For those of you who couldn’t make it ToyConUK this year I’ve got a few remaining Mole XL in all three colours (White, Purple, Blue). These are 4 inch hand rotocast resin moles developed from the small ones you may have seen on my stand at conventions. GO TO SHOP

Thought Bubble 2013

Hello!

I’m going to be a Thought Bubble this year. Next weekend actually. Yeah. A little out of the blue, but exciting! My lovely friend Heather over at Dinobot Illustration (Teaceratops Comics) can’t make it this year and has very kindly given me her space. In fact you should go check out her illustration and comic stuff on Etsy. (and soon as the shop will be closed all of Dec, but back in Jan!)

So if you’re looking for me at the show, you’ll find me under the heading for Dinobot Illustration at table 82 in New Dock Hall.

ImageSee, a map. I’m very helpful!

I’ll also have some new stuff at the show. Including painted versions of ‘The Q’ figures. ‘Waiting to Trek’ and these Doctor inspired figures will be released on Doctor Who Day, But if you can’t make it Thought Bubble, all unsold items will be making their way to my online shop the following week.

Also, Green Moles! I’ve got loads of these little guys cast out, so come give one a home. I’ll have the original colours with me too, but there are only a few of the white and black ones left.

See you at the Con!

ALL THE THINGS!

I’ve been all over the place lately on puppet making jobs, and barely had time to work on my own stuff. But here are a few of the things I’ve squeezed in in the last few months!

CARDIFF TATTOO AND TOY CON

Last month I took a trip over to Cardiff for the Tattoo and Toy Convention and met lots of lovely new people and saw both some fantastic and scary tattoos. It was a great weekend and I look forward to doing it all over again next year!

CASTLEHEAD FINISHED & NEW STUFF ON THE SHOP

Some of you who went to ToyConUK in London this year might remember the customisation panel that I sat on with David Stevenson and Jon-Paul Kaiser. I was working on a 3″ Munny, slowly sculpting him into a castle. Well he’s finally finished and up on the shop! I’ve also got some of the necklaces and new stuff made for the Cardiff Tattoo and Toy convention over there too now. Go on, go have a look!

GOING TO MELKSHAM COMIC CON

This Saturday (31st of Aug) I’ll be helping out on the Razarhawk stand with Artist Dani Abram and selling a few little bits and pieces of my own. So if you’re in the area, stop by and say hello!

That’s it for now. More stuff to come soon :)

ToyConUK 2013!

ToyConUK is over! Long live ToyConUK! (2014)

And so went my first ever convention as an exhibitor. It was fun, terrifying and exciting. And once I came to terms with the idea that the convention goers weren’t going to eat me alive, I had some great conversations and enjoyed the customisiation panel I was on.

Also my online shop is now live! you can get there via the page at the top or by clicking on any of these images.

I launched this series of resin figures called ‘The Q’ at ToyCon along with my first set of ‘Taming of the Brew’ customs and lots of other bits and pieces now available over at the shop.

I have a new mailing list as well, to keep people informed about new toys, events and shows that I’m doing. And maybe the odd discount code too. You can sign up to the mailing list here.

So now for the mountains of pics I always post. First of all, here’s my stand which I shared with the lovely Okkle and a few of the pieces I had on other stands.

I’ll be finishing and painting this guy sometime over the next month and will be on sale online soon.

And finally some of the other stands at the con. I didn’t have time to get around all of them, but here are some of my favourites.

Handle Like Eggs

Last month I worked on a short film directed by Bianca Ansems. Its about Eggs, and bikes, and love.

You can see the finished film here.

I produced all of the puppets for the film (12 in total) and made props. Also animated a few close up shots and background characters in wide shots.

Here are a few images from production.

More news on ToyCon next week!

A Busy Couple of Months!

Not even sure where to start!

So most recently I’ve been working on a short film for City of London with the extremely talented Bianca Ansems at the helm. And that’ll be coming out later this month, so I’ll talk more about it then!

I’ve also got my online shop opening soon, to coincide with ToyCon in April, so keep an eye out for that. And for anyone who’s still on facebook I started a page over there called Kerry Dyer Toys, for commission and customisation work.

So I’ve  been getting stuff ready for ToyCon next month. There’s still a lot to go but I thought I’d share with you a few pics and mention the other custom series I’ll have work in at ToyCon.

First up, Art in the Groove, a series of artwork on 12 inch vinyl records. Organised by Generic Art, all the vinyl records will be on display at ToyCon and artwork is based around either the music on the existing vinyl or and unrelated song of your choice. Here are the two I’ve made.

This is also my first attempt at painting out my logo by hand, think it went pretty well.

Fans of tea logo

Next up, I’ve made this little Shakespeare for Fans of Tea Series 3. The guys in the background are for a a series I’ve made to sell at Toycon called ‘Taming Of The Brew’, I’ll post more pics of them later this week.

Aaaaaand, I’m working on another piece for Creo Designs QiQi series, no pics yet though.

I’ll be sharing a booth with the very talented Okkle at ToyCon, so if you’re one of the lucky few who have tickets, drop by and say hello! (also new logo! look, down there on the right, next Okkle’s fancier one!)
