Hello fellow Mavens,
Jason here with an exciting and important announcement today. A dear friend and colleague Victor Hugo Sousa officially joined Maven Collectibles! His position is titled as, “Digital Artist” and he will be applying his artistic talents on future Maven projects! He is currently working products for XM Studios and Kotobukiya so be on the lookout for those amazing statue releases too!
You may have remembered his “Artist of the Month” interview early this year (if not, check it out here). Vic has been a great companion and supporter of our work behind the scenes. After that interview we started connecting similarities in our current industry goals. The more we talked the more our trajectories lined up and made sense. We are about pushing product design and doing unique projects that reflect our personal art-collecting ambitions.
Not to mention, Vic is a great individual through and through. He has a very humble attitude, is a strong advocate for art education, and looks at all projects as opportunistic means to sharpen his skills. In this industry it is becoming more and more rare to find “real deal” artist who not only can walk-their-talk but deliver in results. No frills. No excuses. Just good old fashion hard work and passion for his craft. As he is fittingly known among colleagues, “The King of the Nerds“.
So what does this mean for Maven?
Not only are we looking at expanding our current product lines but also towards working with other companies to aid in developing fan-favorite properties! We cannot wait to show you what is in store and… We have a new project launching that will show you just how exciting the future is going to get for us!
To Victor, Thank You for your continuous support and I am beyond thrilled to have your inclusion in this company!
