Since its founding in 2005, DesignerCon has grown into the largest designer toy and art convention in the United States. For its 2020 — aka Covid pandemic edition — DCon will broadcast and host sales on Popshop Live, a groundbreaking platform at the forefront of streaming commerce. Secret Walls will return with their signature live illustration battles. Over 30 artists are participating in a DKE Toys curated limited-edition hand made action figure drop. Japan’s MEDICOM has DesignerCon as their only U.S. convention. The expo’s featured art show celebrates the 35th anniversary of Back to the Future — a franchise more timely than ever — honoring the iconic film with a fan art show curated by the radiant Carmen “Jane Dope” Acosta. The exhibition will be held at Art Share LA, a non-profit arts organization in DTLA, and livestreamed to DCon attendees.
