acamera for long enough to actually filma video so here we go hopefully thisone's gonna get published I've filmedonce before that didn't so green devilfirst began is more of a hobby for meI'd find furniture the people had leftbehind and do it it was a lot cheaperthan going out to the shops we get yourfirst house it's very expensive tofurnishes I tried to find a cheaperalternative after this after thefurniture came close I wanted to givemyself a different style couldn't reallyfind it in the shops so I find morejackets usually Blazers and had a bit ofpersonality to them I made myself onefirst I had some spying said with somesome spray paint some vinyl and when Iworked out my friends absolutely lovedit so I ended up making some for themtooworking on the abandoned toys is beinggreat because I've really got to expandand make my own characters that way theabandoned toys that everybody has becomefamiliar with on Facebook these guyshave been hugely popular I always lovedumpster dive in finding out what peoplethrow now and I saw one day when I wasleaving work somebody had left a bunchof toys by the bins and I just couldn'tbear to leave them behindI thought surely there's got to besomething I can do with it so I tookthem home kept them in the shed for agood couple of months as I usually dowhile I ponder things over I've alwaysbeen a big fan of horror horror moviesthat kind of thing[Music]and also big fan of Toy Story thank youokay and my mom began to wonder andthink what happens to toys that get leftbehind what happened was the unhappyending of toys diary of what happenswhen the toys get thrown away I missthat speech of them as little feralcreatures that scurried around afterdark and had to fend for themselves sothe kids have grown up why don't thetoes grow too so they become a bit punkyadolescent big but a bit more gritty andsometimes scary do a bunch of differentvariety of different toys depends onwhat I find at the time a lot of thetoys I find discarded after car bootsales and things like that there's novalue to to these toys and if they don'tsell them the ones they'll just leavethem just check the more good people buynew toys so whenever I go to a car bootor hang around a little bit afterwardsand see what I can pick up and see whatI can use in my artwork and I happen tofind a lot of toys one of my latestpieces is Fenrir the way better as youcan see here and I'm glad I've startedthis YouTube channel it just means thatpeople can see a bit better than thepictures that I post on Instagram youcan see where you can see just how bigearsI
