If you like pop art, DesignerCon in Pasadena is among the world's best art fairs. Where else does Paul Frank appear in person? I mean, did you even know Paul Frank was a real person?
Also spotted at this year's con, now in its fifth year, was Baby Tattoo Books (which brought along art goddess Olivia De Berardinis to sign copies of her new book), plus Coop, the SuckLord, Jeff Soto, DKE Toys, Han Cholo, Ragnar, Kid Robot and 240 more incredible artists. Prints on Wood brought in special-edition giant prints, Jermaine Rogers had an incredible Sad Rabbit Bowie that we wished we had the money to buy, and Bob Dob's undead Mouseketeer army made an appearance. And there were Dunnys. Lots and lots of Dunnys.
