It took me by surprise that this idea of making toys out of real people had such a good response through my customers.
I’m starting to get more and more orders and it gets more and more fun.
It’s pretty simple, I get few pictures of that person and I make a mini version of him or her, a funny soft toy that keeps some of that persons features and expression.
Basically I’m like a cartoon filter in a photo app 🙂
The latest custom order I’ve delivered to New York was such a cool idea from a guy I’ve met and already turned into a toy before. It looks like he liked himself so much as a mini soft version that he came up with this crazy-cool idea for a gift for his nephew that lives in a different country: 7 members of his family as soft toys!
What would be more fun for a kid than to play with his family, literally, every day?
All I need is a picture and I’ll make a toy of of you!
Târgul de design a fost organizat în Piața Amzei, cu ocazia Street Delivery și a prezentat obiecte create de Studio Mud, De Ceramica, BumbagR, Ploosh, PATZAIKIN, Eyecandy Monsters, Woodlens eyewear, Woodish, EcoSocial Atelier, Moogu Contemporary Jewellery, SKIN DEEP, Square Art Studio, dar și o selecție făcută de Giftshop-ul The Institute.
Printr-un parteneriat semnat cu Administrația Piețelor Sector 1, The Institute va derula anul acesta un program susținut de evenimente și manifestări cultural-artistice și de promovare a antreprenorilor din industrii creative, menit să contribuie la reinventarea și revitalizarea spațiului Pieței Amzei și la reintroducerea acestuia în circuitul urban și în atenția publicului larg.
Toate aceste activități se vor derula sub numele Amzei Market Makers, și în efortul de a-și atinge obiectivele asumate, The Institute se bucură de parteneriatul demarat în 2014 cu ING Bank, prin care sunt încurajate atât antreprenoriatul creativ din România, cât și dezvoltarea urbană cu ajutorul energiei și resurselor industriilor culturale și creative.

This is the short story of the latest project I’ve worked on, part of a cool gift ReloadFilm offered to Fibra Jury on their day off.
After flying them around Romania in two helicopters, sightseeing and enjoying some good food, driving in old Volga cars and an old Militia car, I’ve met them at the Baneasa Airport just right after they got back.
I was so happy to see them really excited about these mini versions of each, some monstrous-cute little creatures that resembled each of them in a certain way.
I started receiving few orders before to work on a certain person and make a monstrous version of them but this time I wanted to try something new.
First I had researched the mighty internet for more pictures of them since on Fibra site they were presented in black and white and some of the pictures were not so descriptive as I needed. Of course, nobody needed to see all hairs on their faces as I did.
I was happy to find out that Wendy had pink hair ( not anymore when she arrived here but she said she will again pretty soon 🙂 ) and that I could use this detail that I usually like a lot.
I’m sorry that Evgeny didn’t come up in my research with his blonde beard but still, the Evgeny-toy was one of my favorite, even if it was a beardless version of him that would have been accurate some years ago.
Also the two lovely funny ladies Radenka and Olivia, at first , as you can see in my original sketch, I had not found the right solution for their hair. I’ve finished them last and now I’m in love with them, as toys :). I also plan to make more toys with that type of hair. I have endless possibilities there, I can create any kind of hairstyle!!
I’ve chose to use some simpler solutions that worked out perfectly in this case. I’ve ended up creating a group of 9 characters that had the same shape but different eye size and color, different hair styles and different mouth expressions.
I felt so happy too see each of them recognizing himself into the toy! It was such a monstrous joy!!
Every time I receive a specific order I meet some challenges for the first time. Almost 99% of the times, some cool solutions comes out of them, something I could have not found if I wasn’t asked for that specific feature.
I feel so lucky that such requests come my way that make me discover new characters in my monstrous garden of possible ideas.
These cute monstrous girls are fresh form the oven!
