Janaina Coe and Brazil's budding designer vinyl industry

10:03 AM on 06.28.2008

When you visit Tomopop, you see figures and customs from the usual places: USA, UK, and Japan. Someplace you don't see very often, if at all, is the vinyl work of places like Brazil, whose industry is still very much in its infancy. Janaina Coe and friends are looking to change that, and I couldn't be more excited for it.

Janaina and her friends in Brazil are busily working to make their home just as well known as the rest, and the work they are doing is truly amazing. Recently, she and her cohorts hosted an art show of custom vinyl pieces, designed by Janaina, Odair Morassi, Buraco de Bala, Adriano Cinelli, and Estúdio Mopa. The pieces were designed for a client, who will hopefully put the figures into mass production, because looking at these photos just makes me super excited. Check the gallery for some of my favorite pieces from the show, and be sure to check out Janaina's flickr, which includes more of the figures on display at the show, a look at the pieces that will be going into production, and even some behind the scenes photos of the production of the figures.

Janaina, we here at Tomopop look forward to the future for you and your designer friends in Brazil.
