TOY0+In 2015, we had introduced our new series "+Artist" and you have been invited to become our first collaborate artist. By launching "NEWVMAN AWAKER" as the first vinyl toy, can you share with us your feeling at that time?
KamanwilliamWhen 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.
TOY0+After "Newvman Awaker", we will be releasing your second created character - Zombie Kitty. Can you tell us the concept behind the creation of Zombie Kitty?
KamanwilliamI used to work in 3D animation, one of the character that I deeply felt it doesn't have a soul, that why I created her became Zombie Kitty.
Do you collect any toys? What kind of toys do you like?
I love to collect Capsule Toy.
TOY0+What do you think about the toy culture? How would you think that a designer toy means to you?
KamanwilliamToy is an element that can heal human's soul, and toy design almost like a treatment that to heal everyone's soul. To my opinion, my toys are like toxic that you can't be immune.
TOY0+What is your impression of bringing your created characters into vinyl collectible toys with TOYZEROPLUS.
KamanwilliamMost of my works are created in the 3D world, to be able to present them into realistic vinyl toys, I am really interested to make it happen!
