From Vinyl Creep
Mikie Graham (aka Zombiemonkie) is a long time toy customizer, show curator, and is a founding member of Blamo Toys.
Mikie's love affair with toys stared at an early age. As a child he collected and played with the traditional 80’s mass market action figures, but as he grew older he began to realize the unique beauty that these “toys” possessed. In high school Mikie could be found skipping class to hang out in the aisles of ToysR’us waiting for the new shipment of figures to come bursting out of their cardboard coffins. In 2002 on an extended visit to Japan Mikie discovered the world of designer vinyl and art toys. Since then he has become an avid collector and customizer of unique 3d art figures …. As well as the mass produced action figures of his childhood.
