TTC ToyConUK 2015 Exhibitor Interview #2 – Knaff Naomi

Following on from our first TTC ToyConUK 2015 Exhibitor Interview yesterday, we now meet Knaff Naomi who will be at TCUK for the first time this April.[frame align=”center”]smallbob[/frame]Tell us a little bit about yourself & your background? 

Knaff Naomi: I grew up between France and the UK were I went to school in Film and Animation. I enjoyed making short films but my favourite part was always Character and Set Design. I naturally veered in that direction.[frame align=”center”]cycobob by knaff naomi[/frame]How did you get in to the Designer Toy scene?

Knaff Naomi: I started collecting toys a few years back after moving to Canada. I didn’t know much about the scene until I found out about  Designercon and just couldn’t wait to participate.

What is your ‘go-to’ tool when customising/creating?

Knaff Naomi: My round file.

What is your favourite platform to customise?

Knaff Naomi: Haven’t done any of that yet but it’s on my mind.

If you could collab with any artist(s), who would it be?

Knaff Naomi: The main one would probably be Bob Conge, his Night Gamer has had a huge influence on me!

What’s been the biggest influence on you in the year since ToyCon UK 2014

Knaff Naomi: Probably Designercon, I saw so many great things and met a lot of great people.

Have you got anything brand new coming to the event this year?

Knaff Naomi: I’m currently working on a balancing toy ICAR, which will hopefully be ready for Toycon! And plenty of resin smaller pieces are in the works…

What are you most looking forward to seeing?

Knaff Naomi: Everything!

If your house was on fire and you could save one toy in it, what would it be?

It would have to be 2, Mountaintop by Bwana Spoons/Munktiki and Jesse Hernandez’s Ozomahtli.
