The point of departure for our customization of Tainer Boy was built on the consciousness of Pinocchio, Jiminy Cricket concretely.
We wanted to turn around the story of Disney,
and Jiminy Cricket has become a ghetto gangster,
who took advantage of Pinocchio for enrichment rather than away from the problems.
To add a touch more like a New York neighborhood, we use the name of the English version,
Jiminy Cricket (J.Cricket), and add the nickname "Da Hustla" rapper slang
that means someone who makes money from a not so legal way .
Pinocchio on the other hand is absolutely manipulated by Jiminy Cricket, who has complete control of his "mind", and uses it to transport the dirty money he earns from busking.
At the same time, Pinocchio, makes very clear, as shown by its growing nose, that the container contents has nothing to do with the timber transport.
We have worked on Tainer Boy platform using epoxy putties for modeling cricket,
airbrush to paint the pieces and decals for the logos of container and cap of Pinocchio.
