TheBlindBox S2 Ep10 ft Gary Ham
Toy Week! Yeap you read that right. It’s 5 days of toys & artists who share the same passion for 3d pieces of art. Our first day is sponsored by the good folks over at StrangeCatToys(dot)com. We are also giving away one Jason Limon “Abominable Snowcone” courtesy of Martian Toys. If you listen we will tell you how to win a great piece to start your collection. Now, to the good stuff: We get things started with community favoirte Gary Ham. Gary joins GM & Catf1sh on The Blind Box to talk about being a toy designer, self producing toy’s since 2005, his love for working with wood as opposed to strictly vinyl, his wide collection of toys as well as Kid Robot’s current popularity on the scene as well as artists that have been on The Blind Box. GM & Catf1sh also get a lesson in designer toys from Gary & GM talks a little about his connection to woodworking. We also talk a little about Gary’s lack of “cool artist name” and give him a possible new alias for future pieces of work. In the 2nd segment we’re joined by Nathan of DJBooth (@RefinedHype). Nathan jumps on The Blind Box to talk a bit about the possible death of the blogging era, having his article stolen by Jermaine Dupri as well as his knowledge of the vinyl toy scene. Oh, and B.O.B. thinks the world is flat and if you think it’s round? Joke’s on you. Yeah, we cover that too… This is The Blind Box, Toy Week!
