Custom Labbit by Mark Nagata, San Francisco, CA

Artist Mark Nagata started as a collector of early vinyl toys from Japan (his private holdings include the largest Ultraman collection in the world). As an illustrator his work appeared in advertsing for IBM, Genentech, Scholastic Books, Harper Collins, Activision, DC Comics, Galoob Toys, Lucasfilms, Hasbro Toys and a series of 40 cover paintings for R.L. Stine's Goosebumps book series. Nagata combined his passion for toys and his background in commercial art to co-found Super 7 Magazine, a stylish publication dedicated to Japanese toy culture. Through Super 7, Nagata had his first experience in designing toys based on classic Japanese character toys. After four years of producing the magazine, Nagata started Max Toy Co., which produces its own toys, both licensed and original. Nagata was part of the Dreams to Dreams custom show at the Museum in 2008.
