Brent Nolasco – ‘Swamp Thing’ Hunter for DesignerCon

Hunter DCon Swamp Thing Colorway By Brent Nolasco 003

Brent Nolasco will release ‘Swamp Thing’ Hunter at DesignerCon.  This homage edition follows on the heels of Hunter Mako  which debuted earlier this month at NYCC.  The 8” hand-painted resin figure with glass eyes will be available at the Suburban Vinyl booth [#515] for $120. Very cool.

'In my days of wandering in countless nomadic adventures, I came across different forms of life. Some have stuck in the landscapes of my mind, and other have been forgotten. Hunter was one that left an impression. I remember the first time I saw him while on one of my daily walks by the river. He rose out of the murky water at dusk and ate insects. He looked around cautiously so as not to be seen. Then he disappeared, back into the river, not to be seen again. From time to time I would lurk in the shadows to try a catch a glimpse of Hunter again, but my luck has run out. I didn’t ever see him again. The only images that I have of him live in my sketch book, until now.'

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.
