Plastock: plastic toys used for stock-art

The Minneapolis-based Charles Spencer Anderson design firm specializes in vintage and repro designs, many of which were derived from old plastic toys, carefully hoarded, remixed, photographed and photoshopped:

Ah, glorious, sugary, eye-pleasuring Plastock. The only thing I adore in the CSA universe more than the black ink that makes up the original rights-managed Archive. Basically, Plastock is the three dimensional embodiment of vintage stock art. Anderson started by amassing tens of thousands of old plastic toys, charms, game pieces, models, cake toppers, railroad scenery, and doodads, then his team customized them with paint and frankensteining techniques before photographing them in the most beautiful ways imaginable, and finally Photoshopping them to perfection.
