UK designer toy maker Lisa Rae Hansen created this really dope figure called “Old Skool”. I’m loving the look of this piece with the red Addias hoodie and kicks! I also like the way the face is a TV screen and how the hoodie wraps around it. Lisa Rae made “Old Skool as a submission for the “Toyheist Show” @ The Concrete Gallery, in Amsterdam.
“The face shape immediately suggested a TV and the curve of the head a “hoodie”, so I rolled with that and went for a little nostalgic wander. The end result is character whose face is an old analogue TV screen. His body is suitably, non-digitally dressed, in classic retro Adidas (including the sneakers). I used the static on the screen to suggest the idea of his being stuck in a moment of time, jammed in a channel from a bygone era. He’s either waiting to be tuned back in or happy to be lost in a fuzzy place from the past.”~Lisa Rae Hansen
