在2015年我們推出"+Artist"系列而你亦成為我們首位合作的藝術家,當推岀首隻搪膠公仔「腦星人」,可否和大家你當時候的感想?

WILLIAMWhen I have told that my work could become a vinyl toy, I was really excited, as I knew this process takes a lot of time, it is also a challenge that the production needs to follow all the textures from my original work, and time consuming on QC, but TOY0+ helps me solve the above issues.
我當時知道作品能夠實體化,十分興奮,因為我明白要將自己的平面作品實體化是需時很多,而且要還原本來的質感無疑是個挑戰,最後能夠保持作品品質也是需要無窮耐性,但這計劃協助我解決以上問題。
