As we promised you in part one HERE, there’s more coming from the boys at DKE Toys. You know the deal;
“Many have commented that the DKE booth at these various shows look like a small art exhibition. While these figures are generally referred to as “bootlegs” they are far from pirated versions of mass marketed toys. Each of these artists use transformative properties in their work to communicate ideas that are often political, parody, or commentary about the pop culture world we live in. Also please do not be confused by the word “toy”. These are works of art!!! Do not give to a child to play with. They will break, get ruined, and hurt your children physically and emotionally.”
Here’s more goodness you can expect at the con;

Bio: I am a 35 year old artist and elementary school art teacher based out of Baltimore MD. Inspirations for artwork range from arbitrary yet eye catching color palettes and forms found in commonplace structures and generic graphic design.
