Minimates 10th Anniversary Interviews Matt Cauley

Hello, everyone!

Earlier this year, I was fortunate enough to interviewed by Jeff Burton, who runs the Portrait of an Addiction Minimate blog. Jeff was wanting to put together an article looking back on the DC Minimates line, and was wanting me to describe my own involvement with the development.

I should like to stress that while I was involved in varying degrees with everything featured, it is primarily the DC, Kelloggs and Battlestar Galactica lines that I had the most involvement. I handled only the digital coloring and board mockups on the Ghost Rider, Marvel Zombies, Rocky and The Avengers lines, with the exception of Loki and Hawkeye, whom I both designed. For the majority of the DC Miniates, I would with fellow designer Uriel to tag-team on certain characters so that we could delivery quality work under an extremely tight deadline.

I’m definitely the most proud of the Gorn, Bane, STRIPE, Stargirl, Ares, Clayface, Brainiac-13, Killer Croc, the entire Battlestar Galactica roster that is showcased, the Cyberman, the Cyberleader, and the Kellogg’s line; these were the pieces in which I was the sole designer. Even still, while I came up with the designs for these, there were several people involved every step of the way, and they deserve equally as much credit for getting these pieces through the process to completion. Every figure you see on the shelf is the combined effort of designers, sculptors, production managers and so on, and I really want to stress that the article is meant purely to discuss my own involvement in the overall process, and not to misrepresent me as the sole designer on these projects.

Your kind words and encouragement mean a lot to me. As always, would be grateful for any feedback you might have!

Thanks again to Jeff for such a fantastic opportunity!
