INSPIRATION:
Ancient Chinese dragon is a combination of great deals of animals, including fish, snake and eagle. I got my inspiration from this interesting concept. Through mixing and matching of the characteristics that I discovered in the animal world, I created my own dragon. Each Drago have a story to tell.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Drago is digitally constructed and then used 3D printing method to print. It is printed with white PLA with 0.1mm thick layers. After printed, it had been polished and sprayed with a top coat. All the details were hand-painted with acrylic and then top with another shining coat.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
75mm x 75mm x 75 mm

TAGS:
Toy design, collective toy, modern, decoration, pop culture, dragon

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Nowadays there are not much toys designed for adults. I want to design a series of toy that can be collect by modern toy lovers. Modern toy has become an iconic art platform to bring artistry to the public eye, and a fusion of pop-culture and illustration is expected to inject vitality into the modern toy. So I designed a toy that involved in varies color and pattern, I hope this bold design, can be recognizable and evoked people’s love of pop-culture.

CHALLENGE:
The key challenge to the product was to create a shape that looks cute and modern. Another challenge is to create a pattern that can perfectly fit in the shape and add playfulness to it, because the shape is irregular and I want to keep the feature of a dragon but also add some interesting pattern in it.
