Reactor-88’s Custom Corner: Infinite Rabbits



Welcome to the October edition of Reactor-88's Custom  Corner! This month we’re highlighting Thomas S. Durdella, aka Infinite Rabbits. Thomas lives in Cleveland, Ohio, with his wife and daughter. Thomas’ background is in history and architecture, and has been professionally employed in the architecture, art, and graphic design fields.

He has been working with designer vinyl toys for about four years, but painted, sculpted, and kit-bashed toys & models since he was a kid. As a teenager, Thomas worked in a comic book store for a few years. From that experience he developed a fondness for artists like Bill Sienkiewicz, Dave McKean, and others doing fully painted and/or collage in comics. In college Thomas was a professional toy soldier and war gaming miniature painter (he still accepts some commissions for those.) From those formidable years he tried various materials, gained a lot of experience, and really polished his technique. That world also exposed him to illustrators and artists like John Blanche and Ian Miller.

There’s a lot more that’s impacted Thomas’ art and he’s carried it all through the years in to what he creates today. He is currently trying to spend more time on art and toys because that’s where his heart lies and he feels his strongest talents are. As the demand for Thomas’ work keeps increasing, he hopes to be doing it full time in the very near future. And while the focus here is on custom vinyl (and resin) toys, he has an expanded repertoire that includes a variety of 2D and 3D media. Thomas does take commissions, so if you’d like to contact him about a project or if you’d just like to keep up with his work, he can be contacted via email or found at the Infinite Rabbits Website, Infinite Rabbits Store, and various social outlets: Instagram, Google+, and Facebook.
