Jon-Paul Kaiser x J*RYU @ Middle East Film & Comic Convention (April 6-8.2017)

After their collaborative show “Dauntless” at San Francisco’s Woot Belly, the duo of Jon-Paul Kaiser and J*RYU next travels to Dubai for Middle East Film & Comic Convention - where they’ll be boothing at #IA07 - #IA08 (alongside Linda Le AKA @vampybitme on booth #IA09), and representing products from Kidrobot, myplasticheart, Tenacious Toys and Rotofugi, one of which is the “Spawning Version” of Chris Ryniak’s Snybora (seen below) in an extremely limited edition of just 10 pieces!

On my way to Dubai for Middle East Film & Comic Convention and I could not be more stoked! I will be conducting two panels along with @jonpaulkaiser - The Business of Art and Toy Customization 101. We can also be found at booths IA08-09 (next to the extremely talented @vampybitme) where we will have our work, along with a huge amount of products on behalf of @kidrobot, @myplasticheart, @rotofugi and @tenacioustoys so that @MEFCC attendees can get their first chance to explore the world of designer toys and collectibles. We are all extremely thankful for this opportunity to meet you all in the Middle East so please come out and say hello! Got my pens, clay, Skyroam pocket wifi and spiky hair ready. ;) See you soon! #mefcc #jryu #convention #comiccon #dubai #jonpaulkaiser #designertoys #kidrobot #myplasticheart #rotofugi #tenacioustoys #skyroamspringbreak @myskyroam
