It’s hard to forget the incisively playful artworks of Colorado Springs-based sculptor Sean O’Meallie. Like toys, their bright colors, high contrasts and sleights of wit give them a primordial visual and tactile appeal. What you may not know is that O’Meallie spent many years working in the highly secretive toy business as an inventor and concept designer for one of the very few entrepreneurs who had entree with the big toy companies.
In this first of two features to bookend this holiest of holiday shopping weekends, O’Meallie shows us some of his concepts, designs and a few of the toys he helped create that made it to market.
On Monday when we return after Thanksgiving, we’ll look more closely at the influence his toy designs had on his artwork.
