So, I've been making toys now for around 18 months give or take.
I have taught myself and scoured google for just about everything possible regarding resin and the toy scene.
I have also virtually met and conversed with some really awesome artists on instagram and through my website. All of which I hope to feature on this blog soon enough.
When I'm squirrelled away in my workshop coming up with ideas and making things, it can seem like I am working in a bit of a vacuum... It's time to show my face.
With that being said, I have taken the plunge and will be attending #toyconuk at the Novotel London West Hotel as of March 2020.
This will be the very first time exhibiting anything for myself. Before now, all of my exposure has been either online or through the wonderful #dketoys based in California.
I will be debuting my line of Ancient Mutant Ninja Masters I've been working on over the last few months.
It seemed wrong that a Yoda/TMNT figure mash-up didn't exist, So, I decided to make four individual sculpts of my own.
Named after the four Masters that created them, George Lucas, John Williams, Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird, the Ancient Masters were born!
If you are reading this before March 14th 2020 and you are in London it would be awesome if you came and said Hi!
I am also a tad bit nervous for the convention.
I have never been front of house talking to people having to explain my work before. Let's hope I don't make a dogs dinner of the whole thing.
That being said, I am more excited to be honest. The show is guaranteed to be packed full of really talented artists from all around the World as well as the UK.
If you have exhibited or been apart of any convention please feel free to give me some advice in the comment box below. I'm going to need it!
