Welcome to the April edition of Reactor-88's Custom Corner. This month we’re highlighting F1shcustoms, which is comprised of brothers Joey & Matt Fiscella. The Fiscella brothers are full-time artists originally from Port Chester, New York, but they now reside in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Joey & Matt don’t have any formal art training and got into custom toy making about six years ago just to see what it was all about. They both love comics, video games, and pro wrestling- which is heavily reflected in their body of custom toy work.
An interesting fact that the brothers wanted to share — they both hold a pen with all five fingers, and didn’t even know each other did this until recently. While they were compelled to correct this during their younger years, they resisted and at present still do it this way. For them holding a brush like that makes painting much easier. When you look at their work, you will see that they really have excellent control over their brushes — their custom toys have an extreme amount of precision and is very crisp. Their work looks like it just popped out of the pages of a comic book.
While Joey & Matt started painting toys for themselves, nowadays the majority of their work goes straight into collectors hands. If you’re interested in getting your hands on some of their work, you can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org. For pricing and more info, head over to their website, or you can find them at the usual social spots- Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
