These featured artists have been a long time coming. Every so often we try to bring you four artists that you should take a look at. Whether they're new to the scene, or veterans you really ought to already know, this is a chance to get a glimpse at the folks behind our favorite designer toys, custom toys, original art, and prints. Enjoy. 

Featured for Designer Toys: BeeFY

Menh Voong is the brain behind the comic and cartoon-inspired brand Beefy & Co.. With a modest little booth at every recent convention, I love walking by and seeing the amazing customs on the Ghost Tribe x Warrior, and the Peace & Serenity Buddha - Jade, a resin cast that I got to grimpse and SDCC and finally appeared at DCon, was incredibly beautiful and took his Bad Bad Buddha platform to a whole new level. To find out more about his work, you can follow beefy on Facebook or check out his website.

 

Featured for Custom Toys: Patrick Wong

Patrick Wong is an illustrator whose vast skills, until recently, were only appreciated by the commercial sector. Suddenly now his incredible customs are popping up, and not only are they phenomenally crafted, but they're also extraordinarily well thought out. Seriously, check out this great blog post about a custom fatcap he did for a private collector, and learn a little something about street art. He also did both the poster and an incredible Rock n' Roll themed Fonzo for Dragatomi's Fonzo Loves California show which opened last week. Check out his incredibly well maintained blog here. Gotta love a pro. 

 

Featured for Art Prints: Jermaine Rogers

Jermaine Rogers may well be solely responsible for my toy addiction. When we first began buying toys I was high on the thrill of blind-box collecting, but I would very rarely be all that interested once I knew what was in the box. The Tempter Squire was the first toy that didn't draw me for its gimmicky mystery. I loved him the instant I saw him and he remains one of my favorite toys to this day, creepy smile, cloven hoofs, and all! But did you know that Jermaine Rogers is also a print designer? Yeah, of course you did. He's known for his badass band posters, and his most recent print for Widespread Panic for their show in Syracuse last weekend seems to have already sold out. Catch lots more info (and some incredible prints at low low prices) on his website

Featured for Original Art: Mab Graves

This is an industry that is currently flooded with big-headed, dough eyed children, roaming the wild and looking eerily directly into your soul, but some artists do it much better than others and somehow Mab Graves' sorrowful portraits won me over instantly. At first, I thought this was because her signature pout seems to be the exact face my daughter makes when she's angry, but it's so much more than that. I'm always drawn to the work of a skilled hand, and Mab's precision and perfectionism are what truly stands her out from the crowd. Her Fonzo last week was a shining example of that, however if you're going to poke around her profile, check out these amazing mixed media Cabbages she did for her solo show The Runaways at Gallery Nucleus. I'm so in love! More info about Mab on her website of on her Facebook page.
