10-Doh! is one of the characters from my "So Analog(tm)" label, an original brand meant to pay homage to the fallen forms of technology that many of us grew up with. The 10-Doh! figure was inspired by the classic NES cartridge and is designed to be a blank canvas for artists of all kinds to show off their talents.
Mini 10-Doh! Series 1 had 12 contributing artists and 16 designs to collect. This is what Series 1 looks like.
For Series2, I've asked more friends and other artists that I respect to contribute designs. Some of them are famous, others are soon-to-be famous. There are a total of 16 unique designs by 14 different artists.
The artists pretty much had complete freedom to create labels that reminded them of their favorite classic games or simply cross promote their own artwork or brands.
Here are the contributing artists for Mini 10-Doh! Series 2. (in alphabetical order, so no egos are bruised or over inflated, Ha!)
With each day of the campaign (up to day 16, or so), a new Series 2 figure design will be unveiled here on this site through updates. I invite you to check back regularly and "do some early shopping."
I've done my best to put some interesting pledges together. I hope you find something you like. So please pledge, stay tuned, and spread the word.
Here's the 1st Stretch Goal, more to come.
Risks and challenges
This will (thankfully) be my 4th time importing toys that I've designed, produced, and funded. All other projects have gone relatively smoothly and this time should be no different.
I have just enough frequent flyer miles (from my previous job) for one more trip to Hong Kong/China to make onsite approvals and make sure things are looking good.
The goal for Series 2 is to debut them at our San Diego Comic Con booth in July (please visit us at booth #5150!). That said, shipping times can vary (with customs, weather and many other know/unknown issues that can arise in the manufacture of goods). Squid Kids Ink (meaning me) pledges to make best, reasonable efforts to deliver goods expediently once we have them in hand.
