- Celebrated artist and illustrator Gary Taxali hired Bigshot Toyworks to sculpt and produce his "Oh No" and "Oh Oh" figures, based on recurring characters from his art.
Working with Gary was a welcome challenge, as his art is the very pinnacle of solid character design. Using only a few bold lines, Gary is able to create characters showing a wide range of complex human emotion. The apparent simplicity of Gary's artwork is deceptively hard to re-create faithfully, but we accepted the challenge and were able to produce for Gary a set of figures that truly embodied the simple beauty of his work.
Working from character sketches provided by Gary, Bigshot Toyworks was able to produce a faithful 3D version of these simple yet endearing characters.
Both figures are available online direct from Gary Taxali's web store.
