O’brien—from Designers in Toy Land

Designers in Toyland, an AIGA fundraiser and custom toy show, this past week at Art Walk opened up the doors to an outstanding turnout. There were so many people passing through to see all of the amazing pieces done by a grouping of 80 artists/designers. It was such a privilege to be a part of such a wonderful event. Check out all the great photos taken at the event from the links in the previous post from Nick, and take a moment to check out this video posted by Urban Jacksonville as well as this video from one of our classmates, Jesse Sison.

A great thing about the show was the opportunity to try something new. I decided that I wanted to paint one of the Kid Robot Munny dolls such as I have seen other friends do in the past. The Munny dolls come with a random assortment of additional attachments to differentiate similar models from each other, and mine happened to have a hat that pretty much helped me immediately decide what I wanted to do with mine. Below are a few photos.
