Broke Piggy – DesignerCon 2016 Preview

Bricked Flyer

Broke Piggy is returning to DesignerCon (11.20 – 11with plenty lined up for the big show including two custom shows and a mystery sofubi drop.  First up is Bricked showcasing the work of artists known for their toy design and graffiti skills on brand-new walls—special 5” brick wall plaster MAD*Ls created by Mr. The Sanders.  The lineup includes MAD, Angry Woebots, Deph, Jesse Hernandez, kaNO, Marka27, Scribe and Sket One. Next, The Bots return with the Toy Within a Toy exhibit featuring 8” custom Dunnys designed by Scott Tolleson, Uamou, Jeremiah Ketner and The Bots. We’re guessing that The Bots will bring the artists’ designs to life in their trademark clay style, much as they did with 2015’s Hold Your Breath series. 

In addition to the two shows, Broke Piggy has teased a new sofubi release from a mystery Hong Kong-based artist.  Expect a few more announcements as well as we get closer to the show.  All of it will be available from the Broke Piggy booth [#527]
