“Good people” are hard to find…and Kidrobot is still looking for them because most of our team, especially this person, Trevor McIntosh, is not “good”, he. is. FABULOUS. Wanna get to know the guy who is the reason you can buy all those Kidrobot collectives? The guy who makes sure that our website is on point and that some creepy internet troll in the middle of nowhere isn’t trying to steal your precious KR goods??… Thaaaats this guy. Get to know him, send him a thank you note, whatevz you want…. here he is.

Get back into theater. I have always loved doing theater and pursued it passionately when I was younger but then life happened. In the back of my mind, I still wonder what would have happened if I would have continued on that path. Life is short so there’s no better time then now to get back into it.
The It’s a F.A.D. Dunny by J*RYU is definitely one of my favorite Kidrobot pieces.
I’m colorblind so I cant tell the difference between the two!
7. What about Kidrobot or art culture is your favorite?
The creativity in taking nothing and transforming it into a masterpiece.
You know that random stranger you make eye contact with when for some reason life makes you look around? That one stranger who for some reason makes you think about your life and their life for the rest of the day? Well, Trevor is that person. It’s kinda like love at first sight, which makes sense because if you met him you would fall.. hard. Say you were lucky enough to cross paths with him, which would mean that you are a frequenter of the newest, trendy place in the heart of the city… there would be a moment where you lock eyes and in the simple second you feel like he is your best friend or some mystical creature that was sent as a good omen to remind you that where you are is exactly where you need to be. Kidrobot has had the pleasure of working with him for two years now and everyday, he never fails to tell you good morning, answer you questions and look fabulous doing it. We appreciate his energy, his light hearted conversation and his mad computer skills.
Hey Trev, thank vinyl you’re here because without you (like your eyesight) Kidrobot would be colorless.

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
