If you haven't heard of Will, you can check out his Wiki for more info. A few of his characters include Iago from Aladdin, Cogsworth from Beauty and the Beast, and Laverne from the Hunchback of Notre Dame. He's the real deal in 2d animation and also very willing to talk and share stories.
This guy takes the toys you grew up with and reveals their inner anatomy. Equal parts creepy and fun: http://www.moistproduction.com/
If you're unfamiliar with Gary, his work is whimsical and bright, using a medium not often used in the toy customization world: wood. Check out his work at http://www.superham.com
