Popcorn Asia 2016 (Aug 12-14)


Popcorn Asia 2016 launches with Preview Night on August 12th, and full-on to the public (Aug 13-14), held at Jakarta Convention Center, Indonesia (same venue as last year's).

And while I am NOT in attendance for this year’s edition (*sadface*), I’ve had fond memories of my visit last year!

With my Passport-gaff, I had only spent a day at the event, and I was greeted with a schweet selection of offerings for the folks in the Indonesian art toy scene, and as well a eye-opener with regards to the indie pop art scene - featuring iterations of fan-art, self-published comics, original art, tons of print materials and collaterals and a general sense of artsy-crafts - beyond the boundaries of heritage/cultural aesthetics, and embracing pop culture.

And while it is a spectrum of styles and levels of aesthetics, the variety of choice is no longer something you'll get to see at large-scaled events like STGCC, IMHO. Truly inspiring.

Featured below are just a few snaps of the event (hashtag #popconasia2016), featuring both collectibles (Featured #onTOYSREVIL) and some select graphics art - which I know I would be snagging tons on for myself too!

To my peeps and friends boothing/exhibiting at Popcorn: May your cash registers ring continuously and generously, and for Attendees: Enjoy yourselves and May you secure your heart's desires at the event! I wish I could join you guys, and I mean it :)

FYI: Entry to the event is ticketed, priced at 65k per single day, and 150k for all 3 days.
