Reactor-88’s Custom Corner : Emily Bee


Welcome to Reactor-88's Custom Corner. September is almost gone, so it's time to highlight one of my favorite toy customizers – Emily Bee. Emily works in the animation industry, which takes her all over the globe. She currently resides in Granada, Spain and is working on an animated feature produced by Antonio Banderas. Her past animation credits include "The Thing", "Sucker Punch", and "Alvin & the Chipmunks" to name a few. When she's not at her day job, Emily can be found banging elbows at the roller derby rink or drawing, painting, and sewing. I first became familiar with Emily via her plush work, and have watched her transition to focus more on custom toys. What really draws me to Emily's pieces are her bold color palettes, and the gothic feel of her designs. She also has a unique characteristic of incorporating lettering into a lot of her work which is a nice touch. If you'd like to keep up with Emily Bee, you can follow her on Twitter and check out more of her work on her blog and Flickr page.
