That year, I was not at the end of my surprises. When I was interested in the middle of the toy, I documented myself via the web of course but also with the specialized press. This is where I came across Clutter Magazine … A really cool and cool magazine to watch.
For each issue, a different format, a highlight of the universe of a toys creator, the discovery of talented artists, information on sites and stores dedicated to this world that fascinated me more and more.
In 2012, the magazine organized for the second time an international contest on toys via its dedicated site designertoyawards. That year, it had selected the 100 best international figures … to my surprise Candy my little rabbit had been selected among the best specialists in discipline ! Of course, I had no chance of winning against these GIANTS.
(But I had a great visibility of my work … I explain, as my pseudo is Barratatouille and since the site had put the figurines in alphabetical order of their creators, I found myself on the front line! Miss just next to 64colors a big artists. As expected, I did not win but it encouraged me to continue in this direction.
