I would like to open this by thanking Huck Gee for sitting down and taking the time to do an interview with us considering we are just starting out on our journey of covering urban vinyl toys and networking to reach as many artists as we can. So, without further ado, I bring you Huck Gee.
Urban Vinyl Daily: Would you mind telling us a little background about yourself ?
Huck Gee: I’m based out of San Francisco. I’ve been drawing my entire life but it wasn’t until my introduction with graffiti in my teens that I became really passionate about art and design. It’s been a natural evolution ever since. Over the last 20 years I’ve enjoyed many disciplines from graffiti to character design and illustration to sculpting and toy design.
UVD: Would you mind telling us about some of the designs that you came up with when you were first starting out and how designs have progressed over the years?
Huck Gee: I’ve been doing some sort of character design my entire life. From army men and D&D characters in my childhood, blossoming into graffiti sidekicks, flier designs, and eventually deeper illustration and 3d toy designs. They’ve constantly evolved, picking up different styles along the way. But that being said, I’m never quite sure what’s going to come out when I put pencil to paper.
