Personal Blog:

Kat Brunnegraff may be a new comer to the designer toy scene, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been making waves already. Known for her distinct night-like style, she made her appearance to the scene in the beginning of this year starting with her Custom Illazilla which was featured on the cross-country tour. She also did a custom toy tutorial for us last month back in May. We had a chance to catch up with Kat and ask her a few questions!

Personal Blog:

Patrick Francisco from New York City has been known in the custom toy scene for his unusually realistic interpretations of gorillas/monkeys on his toy pieces making his toys truly remarkable. At Custom Toy Lab, Patrick has been featured many times on our blog, I’m pretty sure we can guess why? Not only does he do art on toys, he always creates art on other mediums allowing him to be quite diverse in what he does. I’d like to introduce all you readers to Patrick Francisco.

Custom Toy Lab:
Please tell us about yourself Patrick.

Patrick Francisco:
Thanks, Raphael, for talking kindly about my work. I spent some years in the Philippines, but was born in Jersey City, and now live in Brooklyn. I have a BFA in Illustration from SUNY FIT. I am REALLY obsessed with my cat. I paint ape type creatures, often in their underwear.
