Opening Night

We had a very great turnout tonight at the show.  Lots of people, pieces purchased and folks that were taken aback by the creativity of the artists in the group.  Cast In Plastic would like to thank everyone who came out tonight and all the artists that made the show possible.  Without all the artists, there would be no show.  We'd also like to thank Benny Kline from Tenacious Toys, J-RYU, Abe Lincoln, Jr., Toys R Evil, Spankystokes and Domy Books.  You guys rock!

Pieces for the show can be found here.  Contact Domy Books if you're interested in picking up a custom!

babyvtec was raised in Texas and now resides in Los Angeles, CA.

babyvtec found her niche in accounting, but knows her heart belongs to the arts. She misses the time when she could fill her notebooks with doodles instead of lecture notes and dreams of a future where she can draw, paint, and sculpt in broad day light, during the week.  Her background in art derived solely from her love of museums. Exhibitions all over California and New York City continue to stimulate her and she hopes to return to Musée du Louvre in Paris soon. 

Despite the fact that most of babyvtec’s drawings reflect a cartoon personality, her sculptures and custom work speak Victorian. She is inspired by the classy yet gothic twist of the Victorian era combined with ornate and Baroque stylings, damask patterns, and even some kitsch décor.  

babyvtec’s motto? If ain’t Baroque, fix it!

TOYSREVILs *I Like Toys* Blog: Sneak Preview by VISEone for "Cast In Plastic"


One of the most highly notable details to inkwork comes from another one of Houston's local artist, who goes by the name of Anville.  

Anville was born and raised in Houston, TX his entire life.  He began drawing at an early age. His inspiration for art came from his fascination with cars and all things mechanical.  As his years of artwork progressed, he turned to comic books, where he learned to appreciate inkwork and figure drawing.  He recentaly discovered the great masters of color and forms over the last few years, such as Gustave Dore, Klimnt and Mucha. 

Anville's main influences as of late are engravers from the early 1900s, dutch still life painters, along with more contemporary icons such as Kozik and Damien Hirst. For Anville, being an artist is intersting in that each pieceis an adventure in a way, a journey to discover certian things along the way towards its completion. If you see art in that way, it never gets old, and theres always an opportunity to try something new.
