My Bio
My name is Casey Hirai I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. I moved over to Los Angeles 6 years ago to study at Otis College of Art and Design. I wanted to pursue toy design as my profession. I am currently a Senior Designer at Spin Master toy inc. I am trying to focus some time and energy on my own personal works and progress myself as an artist. I will be participating in some upcoming conventions over the next few years. My passion lies in creating inspiring pieces of art mostly in the illustration realm, I hope you dig some of my work! Thanks!
