This week, Don Kratzer is back and he brings Japanese designer and illustrator, Teresa Chiba with him. We talk with Teresa about having her first toy produced by Max Toy Company, self-producing, and currently having her Inu-Harigon character in Medicom's Vinyl Artist Gacha(VAG) series and as a Bearbrick in series 34. We discuss the motif's that inspire the "folk toy kaiju" of Teresa's toy designs, toy lotteries, licensing, colorways, sculpting, upcoming conventions, and much more.
