Spotlight On: Custom Vinylmation Artist Roman Rodriguez
Roman Rodriguez: I was looking for characters that have not been done by any custom Vinylmation artists. While I was trying to push myself to come up with something unique I found that Goofy would make the right character as he has long ears. I then started to search the web to see if there were any ideas on how to bring this to life. I found out that Disney has done a figurine with this cross of two characters. It made it that much more challenging as I wanted to create something original while honoring tribute to this Disney figure.
DV: How long did the design process take to get the perfect mix?
RR: It took me about one day to get the right mix and shape of Goofy into the Mickey Canvas. I was asking my Daughter (Genesis) now 2 years old to see if she knew who he was. After she said Goofy…I knew I had gotten the right shape and mix.
