Junko Mizuno: women, tales and toys.

Junko Mizuno is a Japanese artist who came into being in 1973.

Before focusing on the Toy Design It is advisable to linger a little about its first productions namely comics!
In the manner of a Walt Disney Punk, she will rehabilitate several tales like Cinderella, Hansel And Gretel and even the little mermaid.

Far from being satisfied with these adaptations, it will also create its own stories like for example pure Trance or Ravina the Witch!


At the ray of curiosities, we also find in the work of Junko Mizuno, the cover of the (Great) BLACK BYE BYE BLONDIE DE VIRGINIA DecentS!


Contributor for rock magazine "H", she also made many visuals gravitating around music.

But then the style Mizuno, it's what? First of all, the woman is at the center of all the work of Mizuno. Then, his style is a set of contrast between a "cute" line almost childish and in any case affable and benevolent, and the dark and sordid stories and universes in which it fully expresses its style.


In the Toy design, it's complicated not to evoke collaboration between the artist and supplerplastic. Whether with the Janky series where the Superjankyshe contributed to the vivacity of this game high colors.

Also mention its collaboration with our label ARTOYZ Originals for a leo'z Series 2 and the one with kidrobot for a Dunny the flame !

Finally finish this little overview with the brand new figurine that has just received us from Mighty Jaxx : Mermaid's Purse.

Twisting with preconceived ideas on these poorly mistreated mermaids for centuries, it offers a pretty high-life scene 19 cm in which one finds a luscious mermaid accompanied by a loving shark, a sharpener In the stomach and tight bibberons that the latter will cause fatally!
