Inside Artist Frank Kozik's Studio
I'm a big fan and collector of vinyl art toys, so I was delighted to see this tour of artist Frank Kozik's San Francisco studio, conducted by Anna Newman for The Nerdist. Kozik is a legendary graphic artist originally known for his underground concert posters in the 90s, but has since grown to be a figurehead in the vinyl art movement. One of his most well-known creations is the Labbit character for toy company KidRobot. In this video, Kozik talks about his design process and how he adopts whatever new technology that becomes available as the medium for his art--in this case, resin casting. Kozik also has quite a few blunt words to say about the ideal of the starving artist. This guy is so great.
