DKE Toys at SDCC 2017

This was one of my favorite indie toy booths at SDCC 2017. This year, everything DKE Toys exhibited was custom, handmade carded figures. It made for a striking presentation, with a fantastic variety of creative high and low-brow figures. Considering how much attention the booth got, I think it was a big hit.
Here's an interview I did with DKE's owner, Dov Kelemer
 Here are still images of the booth:
Resin made Boba (cas)Sette. Fun!

Pretty cool that along with this piece, Rep. John Lewis, a Civil Rights leader. was also at the show promoting the award-winning graphic novel series Merch.
 More after the jump:

I just saw a video online saying Pee Wee rewrote the script for "Pee-wee's Big Adventure "to make the Schwinn bike (which he had recently been given) the center piece of the film.

Hand stenciled, hand lettered. Really well pulled off.

These just had me in stitches. So good!


It was great seeing the booth and chatting with Dov, who, along with a few other standouts, proved with force that there is still a place for indie toys at SDCC!
