RSIN: Yeah I guess as far as art goes it’s always been in my life. I remember being young and just drawing the cartoons or animated movies I watched. Then in High School I took some commercial art classes, which ended up with me kicked out because of a close minded teacher. During all of that I was still drawing weird monsters, clowns, graffiti, tattoo designs etc., all just sketches or ink and color pencil. In 2005 when my mom passed, I was at the time out of work and not really sure what to do. In 2006, I decided I was going to apprentice at a local tattoo shop. I was there about a year and a half, drawing flash and doing tattoos. I was never really comfortable in the shop, or doing a lot of the work that there was. During this time I had seen some artist selling canvas through the gallery in the shop, and thought I would give it a go. Up until December of 2007 I had never painted. I was given a blank 7” munny back then and that would be my first vinyl toy. Soon to follow were a bunch of terrible canvases and some more toys lol.
UVD: What is your favorite toy to use for your customs?
RSIN: Over the past 3 years I have had a bunch of awesome platforms to work on. But I have to go with the Munny. For myself it’s what got me into the scene, and allowed me to find something I enjoy doing. It’s a cheap platform and allows you to do pretty much anything with. I think it’s also the platform most of us custom artists started on since it’s just a classic platform and I still enjoy working on them.
