Scott Pyburn: From comic art to making action figures - Tom Ray's Art Podcast 201004

Scott Pyburn is a person I actually met before on a previous season of the podcast. He was traveling with the Mighty-Con comic-book circuit. 

While drawing at his booth and selling original artwork and custom drawings he saw that toys were really a big draw at these conventions. 

After everything shut down this year and the conventions all closed he decided to try something he realized he was passionate about all along, making his own custom action figures under the brand Toyzaholiks.
