Wreck It Ralph Custom Muttpop Tequila by Jon-Paul Kaiser

Even with Designer Con 2014 later this week, Jon-Paul Kaiser is still getting some commission work done and handed off, before making the long plane ride to Pasadena, California. His latest delivered commission is Jon-Paul's take on Wreck It Ralph, using a custom Muttpop Tequila figure. Jon-Paul was basically provided with an idea by the customer, who wanted a Wreck It Ralph custom, but didn't have a figure in mind for the base. Jon-Paul was drawn to the Muttpop Tequila figure, since Muttpop was one of the first companies which drew Jon-Paul into collecting vinyl toys. Essentially, the Tequila figure makes Wreck It Ralph a buffed out version of himself. Jon-Paul left most of the original Tequila figure in tact, while keeping to a clean and simple design. With a re-sculpted head and expert paint application, Jon-Paul was able to really bring Wreck It Ralph to life. All the photos were taken by Justin Allfree, Jon-Paul's go to photographer. For those heading to Designer Con 2014, be sure to attend one of Jon-Paul Kaiser's signings to not only grab a sketch, but maybe some custom work he may bring along.

Admyer Creations at Designer Con Booth #620 with Ink Bombers

One of the best things about Designer Con, besides the affordability for both the vendors and attendees, is the fact that as the convention grows, so does the amount of artists able to participate. Admyer Creations, Celeste Delgado, is one of the emerging artists who will have some work available to purchase at Designer Con. Admyer Creations will be set up at the Ink Bombers Booth, #601. One of the creations for Designer Con is a Vinylmations set of the Monsters Inc characters Skully and Boo. Skully is made to be a Pinata, whereas Boo is the child ready to start smashing him open to get to the delicious candy, waiting to drop. Also on deck, is a custom MadL figure, which should be complete and ready to purchase at Designer Con 2014. So, for everyone heading out to Designer Con 2014, be sure to stop by all the Booths, chat with artists and don't forget to bring a sketchbook and some sharpies.
