Tristan Eaton creates cool figurine characters under the guise of his Thunderdog Productions company. He told Gothamist: ‘It’s an honour to be able to communicate with people visually in such a personal way. Over time these toys become personal to them and a part of their lives too. That feels great. I also feel I have a lot in common with fans that particularly like my designs. I’m always trying to find out if they like them for the same reasons I do. Most of the time they do. I love that’.
