Ha ha… that’s pretty obvious. I LOVE the original Alice in Wonderland and that was my inspiration.
Hmmm… I love painting on anything, but Mega’s are super fun because there is so much space to fill. I feel like I can tell a story Illustratively on a Mega. This one was unique because of it’s crown, collar, cape and it has no arms. I wasn’t sure how I was going to handle the quilting on the cape. I had considered sculpting over it to make it a flat surface. In the end however, I came up with the idea to do red and black checkerboard which was simple, and a nice contrast to everything else that I have going on (imo).
Probably stripping and priming it. I’m always anxious to get started painting and it’s hard to be patient enough to do those things correctly.
I’m inspired by fairytales, classic animation, nature and the woods surrounding my studio, my work is a result of many hours spent creating characters, sculpts, vinyl figures and fantasy worlds.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj on release of The Rejects - Dark Chocolate Edition on Kidrobot.com. "I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
