ABOUT THE ART
3DRetro is set to release its brand-new 'Imperial Lotus Dragon' vinyl art toy by Scott Tolleson. First previewed in proto form at DesignerCon 2019 and first seen in a series of Dunnys, the new 10″ figure unleashes Tolleson’s fully-realized vision of the Lotus Dragon concept. The no-compromise sculpt features 30+ individual pieces for intricate detail including individual spikes on the top of the dragon’s head.
An edition of 150, the Imperial Lotus Dragon vinyl art toy (10″) will be available for $250 from the 3DRetro booth at DesignerCon 2020 Online beginning with the VIP Preview Night (11.13). Scott Tolleson will also be releasing one signed Imperial Lotus Dragon each day of the event from his DCon virtual booth (‘STOLLE’ code).
To put it simply, Scott is a toy junkie. He's obsessed with collecting, designing, and creating toys. He draws inspiration from many areas, including pop culture, comic books, his family, and toys from his childhood. Scott prefers to elicit a sense of child-like wonder and nostalgia in his artwork. He enjoys working in both digital and traditional mediums, depending on his mood.
Scott is happiest when he is working on multiple projects. He has self-produced numerous designer toys, including Otis and Otto, Tricycle Terror, Doc Von Block and Big Rollin’ Rascal. Since ’98, he has worked for the Walt Disney Company in the Entertainment Productions Department where he has designed pieces for various parades, venues and merchandise.
Scott was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. At the age of 16, he moved to the West Coast. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
