What an amazing weekend for the Angry Koala Gear crew! We attended DesignerCon 2012 for the first time, plus we had a booth and we loved it. It was a tremendous opportunity to reconnect with many artists that we have met at previous conventions and met many new ones. A couple of artists that we love and have been fortunate to become close friends with are Denise Vasquez and Randy Martinez who would be our special guests once again.

Denise Vasquez would be our featured guest who joined us for a signing for her Empowerment: Mega Fan Girl prints, who she and Randy Martinez collaborated on creating. Denise Vasquez also brought a few of her amazing customs that she had available at our booth, including her glow in the dark Dia De Los Muertos Vader helmet that always draws great attention and rightly so.
Cthulhu Chameleon would make his second appearance at a convention after Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo and brought a few friends along. Cthulhu Chameleon changes with his environment and comes in many different colors and appearances.

DesignerCon 2012 would bring a new line from Angry Koala Gear, Sporez. Matt Perez created this new line around Pudgy Panda and he wanted to create DesignerCon's logo from the Sporez.

Matt Perez featured many of his amazing customs he has been working on using various platforms from Kidrobot, Disney Vinylmations, and other blanks. Daniel Perez who created the Angry Koala Gear logo also created a new print, Jedi Koala, plus the return of Sith Koala and Stan Thulu prints were made for DesignerCon 2012 that debut at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo.
Angry Koala Gear really enjoyed being part of DesignerCon 2012 and we enjoyed connecting with new artists and reconnecting. We also met quite a few people who enjoyed our works.
We hope to begin selling the Cthulhu Chameleons, Sporez, t-shirts, and prints on Etsy and other sites very soon. Please stay tuned! If you have any questions or requests, please email us.
