We’re about a week and a half away from Designer Con, and this is about the time we start feeling like this. All of us at The Stoop booth #1013 are in nonstop prep mode!
Some of you may have already seen my new BurgerCorn icon – artwork by Orbital Ox and design by Vanessa Ramirez. BurgerCorn will be appearing on a variety of goodies like buttons, bottle openers, and magnets.
I also wanted to share a sneak preview of something new that will be launching at Designer Con. The BurgerCorn collaboration by Orbital Ox and Vanessa Ramirez will only be available at booth #1013! More details to come!
Designer Con is coming up in two weeks, and I’m pleased to announce that Vitamin Cats will be joining The Stoop at booth #1013! Head Pharmacist Angie Cho will be bringing Vitamin Cats and her new Ice Cream Bears.
Stop by booth #1013 to see artwork by Vanessa Ramirez, Orbital Ox, Vitamin Cats, Goreilla + Moemoe.

On October 25, Giant Robot presents Mari Inukai‘s solo exhibition ‘Marilla Orange and Blue.’ The Marilla Blue and Orange exhibition melds two worlds of Mari Inukai. Her expressionistic portraiture is now blurring and stepping into her other world, the imaginary.
Her fictional characters, a team of illustrative creatures, which are part of her canon, appear as headdresses for her portraiture subjects. Facial expressions continue to appear pensive, yet inviting us to wonder.
Inukai’s pencil drawings continue in the same direction. ‘Marilla Blue and Orange’ will include oil paintings and pencil drawings; you can preview more of the works here.
‘Marilla Blue and Orange’ opens on Saturday, October 25 with a reception from 6:30-1opm. The show will run through November 12.
On October 25, Shing Yin Khor and Leslie Levings present The Dubious Expedition “A group exhibit of the glorious, curious treasures from the lost ship HMS Chimera” at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland. This group exhibition features El Dodo Albino, Renee French, Valency Genis, Shing Yin Khor, Shana Kohnstamm, Leslie Levings, Lyla Warren, Lauren Wong, & Yeti and Friends.

Save the date! On Saturday, November 8, WonderGround Gallery will debut ‘A Hipster Life For Me’ – the next piece in Jerrod Maruyama‘s Hipster Mickey series. This latest image finds Mickey hanging out in the queue for Disneyland’s Pirate of The Caribbean attraction and looking too-cool with his Mint Julep.
The piece will be available as a limited edition canvas, deluxe print, and a variety of merchandise. Jerrod will be at WonderGround on Saturday, November 8 from 11am – 1pm for the final signing of the year!
Vanessa Ramirez has been working on a new batch of mini pumpkins, and they are scheduled for release this Saturday, October 18 at 3pm PST in her online shop! If you missed out on her resin pumpkins last year, now is your chance to get your hands on a brand-new crop of pumpkins!
Vanessa is busy working on new stuff for Designer Con and adds: Also if there is anything else in my store you have been eyeballing I will be clearing it out and whatever I don’t take to DesignerCon will most likely be retired. Be sure to visit her at booth #1013 where she’ll be part of The Stoop!
