We've got a fairly substantial toy collection here at We Made This, ranging from comic characters to the Tango doll produced a bunch of years ago.
So we were dead excited to come across the website of Wilfrid Wood. A Central Saint Martins graphic design graduate who went on to work on Spitting Image, his work bridges the gap between toys and sculpture:
Well they're toys in as much as they're funny and brightly coloured and accessible.
My character Fat Boy was produced by Howies clothing company as a toy called Doh Boy. Another called Coot is coming out soon.
They're art in as much as they're fairly 'adult' in subject matter, are hand made and I sell them in galleries rather than toy shops.
They are also art because they are straight from the heart.
Check out his Howies character here.
