What was your inspiration for this custom toy?
I love the whimsical feel of Grimm’s fairytales and woodland themes so the story of Little Red Riding Hood popped into my head.

Loved painting the face! That is my favorite part of any illustration I do.

How and when did you begun customizing?
To tell you the truth I haven’t done much customizing but I created my first one (a munny) 4 years ago. I really want to try out wooden toys next.

What keeps you inspired?
Cartoons, coffee, awesome hair and illustration blogs.
