When I exhibited at DesignerCon two years ago, my neighbor was Edgar of 3 Coconut Monkey, a company that manufactures action figures and toys. I saw Edgar at DesignerCon again last year and we talked about working on a project together. I began to tell him what kind of a figure I could probably afford and he stopped me right there. He said, "Forget about money. Don't limit yourself. What figure do you REALLY want to make?" The first thing to pop into my head was Battle Boko, the mighty Berserker King! Edgar and I discussed the project over dinner a few weeks later. A few months after that I sent him the above artwork and we were underway!
