2011 SDCC Valleydweller Kuso Vinyl signing limited edition Custom Toy Art button packs

There are a total of 21 hand-made button packs in this edition. Each pack will be signed and numbered on the back of the header card.
Each pack contains 3 carefully shuffled and sorted buttons on a hand painted and cut display board, and are sealed in a bag guarded by a pair of Kuso Customs and a neatly crimped length of wire.
They will be available on Thursday between 4pm and 5:30pm and on Friday between 5pm and 6pm at booth 605 during signings.

The packs retail for $5 and are intended for neato nostalgia factor. Individual buttons will be available to pick and wear from the non-editioned pile for $1 each.

I’ll have buttons and art cards for sale, as well as being available to sketch on a DIY Spiki blank (the guys seen above) if you pick one up.

San Diego Comic Con

I’m really looking forward to going back to the Con, now that I’ve had another year of learning what’s going on in the toy scene.

I’m working on a few Spiki customs for Kuso Vinyl (booth 605), where I’m thrilled to be signing/sketching on Thursday from 4PM – 5:30PM and on Friday from 5PM – 6PM.

I’m making buttons and button packs for the show that I’ll have for sale as well.

Final assembly of SDCC button packs is a lot like work. First seven., originally uploaded by valleydweller.

Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones!

As the results came in, I was amazed to hear from someone else that I’d gotten second place in the “Best Trikky” category. Very encouraging, especially in light that Kidrobot founder Paul Budnitz was the judge.

In similar news, as you can see in this photo, my entries are currently installed at the Kidrobot store on Haight in San Fancisco. Many thanks to Korena for the honor, and for such a nice display!
