The Toy Chronicle spotlight takes you to Mexico this week Shiffa the character Designer/Illustrator creates IKARUS from a 8″ Kidrobot Dunny platform. At first glance at the photo of IKARUS I really thought it was a computer generated image.
I was so wrong! the finish and paint job was just pretty dope, best thing about Siffa he uploaded WIP shots of how IKARUS was created.
What a fun goofy character, reminds me of a hangover face.
The nice selection of baby blue and pink was perfect match, those eyes just made me giggle like a little girl.

Giving him the wings and the glorious teeth
looks pretty interesting.
Shiffa is also producing his first Art Toy which I really cannot wait to see it finished.
“I would like to start this biography by talking about the many, or few, professional achievements that I´ve had, the brands or agencies I have worked for, but I believe it is pretentious .What I can say about me is that I live from design and I live to illustrate. Advertising Design is my true call, I am “chilango” and I grew up drawing and tracing comic books. I have been the guy who takes the photocopies as well as Art Director, I have designed for foreign clients as well as for the man who tends the store in the corner. I am sure of who I want to be and even sure of who I don’t want to be, and one of these things is not speaking in the third person of SHIFFA©”
Shiffa Web store should be up and running soon and I personally cannot wait to get some of his products.
