I just discovered this video (via Topless Robot) of Scott Hensey briefly discussing his experience and approach to sculpting toys. Like most people, I don't know many of the artists behind the toys I buy, but it's safe to say, some toy in your possession was sculpted by this guy. Seems like he's touched every popular license from Batman to Mickey Mouse to Teenage Mutant Ninjas Turtles. Not only is Hensey a huge talent, but he's seemingly humble and in it just to have fun and make cool stuff. I like that.
I'll let the video speak for itself, but watching this thing definitely inspires me to start making some weirdo toys of my very own.
