Reactor-88’s Custom Corner: MAp-MAp

1_4478163717_2d97dd292a_b

Welcome to the first edition of Reactor-88's Custom Corner. Since I got involved with custom art toys back in late 2005, the art toy landscape has really grown and I'm constantly amazed by some of the custom toys people create. So my goal with this recurring feature is to highlight one artist's stand-out custom toy art. It might be a single piece or a complete body of work.

For this inaugural post, it's the latter. Matthew Platter, aka MAp-MAp is a traditional and digital artist based out of the UK. The first time I saw his work I was blown away. He pairs some really awesome sculpting abilities with excellent use of color to make his characters come to life. Where a lot of toy artists can sometimes go overboard by sculpting a piece beyond recognition, Matthew gets it right- his additions really enhance the original toys and take them to a new level. What's also nice about Matthew's work is that while each piece is very unique, they all have a cohesive feeling and you could imagine them all living together in some strange, far-off world. So if you like his creations as much as I do and want to keep up with him and his work, check out his website.
