Desk toys (opens in new tab) are becoming increasily creative, inventive and addictive as time goes on. Blue Frog (opens in new tab) is the toy customising company of Buckinghamshire based graphic designer Gary Boon and here, he's curated some rather special creations for his 'Masks of DOOM' series.
For Gary's first custom resin toy series, he asked six artists from around Europe to each created two custom designs on his original resin mask - UME Toys (opens in new tab), Don P (opens in new tab), BashProjects (opens in new tab), Messymedia (opens in new tab), Dr. Barbados (opens in new tab) and Uncle Absinthe (opens in new tab).
The collection will be displayed at Toy Con UK (opens in new tab) on 6 April and each toy will also be available to buy. If you'd like a personalised design of your own, you'll be able to purchase a blank mask for your favourite artist to work their magic on. You can also purchase a DIY version if you fancy trying your hand at custom toy design.
