Jager reflects on eight years

So MPb is eight years old! Congratulations to the staff for keeping this truck rolling. I’m proud to say I was there in the trenches when the site launched. At the time I was a pie-faced kid straight out of
college looking for a way to score some freebies and share my ramblings regarding these pieces of plastic I loved. About two years in I was introduced to something that blew my mind: Designer Toys.

An Interview with Mari Kasurinen creator of the My Little Pony Customs

Last week we posted an article artist Mari Kasurinen’s custom My Little Pony figures. She has created some very unique customs that are really fun. I contacted Mari, because I was curious about  how the idea to customize My Little Pony toys came to her. Here is the interview:

MillionairePlayboy: What is your art education /  background? Did that help you with your toy customizing?

Mari Kasurinen: I’ve done art all my life, I was 5-years-old when I first said that I wanted to be an artist when I grow up. I applied to Taideinstituutti, an art university in Lahti 2007 and got in. Before that I practiced by myself. Of course it helps, all though I feel that everything you learn in life affects in many areas. Expecially in art!

MPB: What artists (painting, drawing, sculpture, ect…) inspire you?

MK: My favorite artists at the moment are Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst and Outi Heiskanen.

Bandage and Scab by Purple Flavor

We all did it. Some still do. No I’m not talking about “THAT” get your mind out of the gutter! I’m talking about picking your scabs. I remember doing it all the time. Of course after you pick off the scab you regret doing it once you start bleeding again. Of course you can just stick a bandage on it.
