*ON SITE* Amanda Visell Dunny Signing SF

Amanda Visell hit up Kidrobot SF on the second stop of her multi-city Wood Donkey Dunny tour. Via her tweets, I gleaned that she spent the day on a toy jaunt pausing to take in local scenic vinyl from STRANGEco and Super7. Back on Haight Street, a small queue was forming. Many kids were in attendance, some as young as stroller-age.

Fans brought plenty of Visell paraphernalia for autographing, and Amanda was happy to chat, sign and doodle. I snuck a Qee into Kidrobot, choosing the dog shape, in deference to the artist's pet of choice. The animal of the night, however, was the donkey. Most collectors bought the 8-inch wood-patterned Donkey Dunny, and some picked up the matching mousepads. Speaking of donkeys though: tonight I was a mule. Amanda kindly personalized "my" Donkey Dunny for my buddy Kyle, who is a big fan. She gave me a quick lowdown on an upcoming collaboration, wisdom on dealing with crowds and a signature on my Vivisect Playset mini-figure. Nice meeting you, Amanda. Next stop for the Wood Donkey Dunny tour = Dallas.
