This past weekend, Audrey and I attended the popular DesignerCon art and designer convention at the Anaheim Convention Center. The scene there was the typical nerd, geek, artist, laid-back Southern Californian in jeans and t-shirt.
It felt so much larger than we had anticipated, even though we knew there were over 500 vendors. Total walking time was over 4 1/2 hours, without breaking for lunch, and we did not stop at every booth. It reminded me a little bit of ComicCon, Etsy, and the L.A. Art Show. Tickets were a bit steep, around $30 per adult, with children 12 and under getting in for free. Parking at the convention center was busy and cost $16 for the day. It was fun and great to see many different types of products on sale. We ended up buying a glow-in-the-dark ghost enamel pin and a pair of ghost earrings for Audrey.
Jack Black! He’s a DesignerCon fan, too.
