DESIGNER VINYL

The other great thing about 2002 - Collectable Designer Vinyl and the rise of the custom art toy. With my design background I just had to get involved. I pursued  Hong Kong based Flying Cat owner and producer of the Scary Girl toy range to make the tokyoplastic mascot into a collectable piece. What followed was a strange adventure in the world of plastic, sold out mass panic posting, shows, collaborations, an off road motor bike adventures in Taiwan. Needless to say there have been highlights, here are just a few.
