Dylan Sisson is an internationally recognized toy designer, cartoonist, and painter. Dylan is the creator of the collectable vinyl toy, Idle Hands, who appears as a special guest in Yipe 5. He’s also created numerous custom vinyls, illustrations, and paintings that have been shown in galleries around the world, and his independent animated shorts have won several awards. His comic book parody, Filibusting Comics was translated into Spanish and featured in a symposium in Madrid. Dylan currently resides in San Francisco where he draws and paints wall-eyed curiosities with big teeth. Dylan says,
“My favorite subjects are those that mix contrasting themes, like a character that’s on the verge of being cute or being frightening at the same time. . . I like creating that tension. For example, what’s the difference between a pet and a monster? A pet licks you. A monster eats you.”
