Reactor-88’s Custom Corner: Cat Atomic
Welcome to the August edition of Reactor-88's Custom Corner. This month we’re highlighting Cat Atomic.
What’s your name?
My real name is Felix Martinez but within the art and toy community, I'm more commonly known as Cat Atomic. Being able to be part of a community where I got to pick a name for myself really drew me in. I've always liked to create names for things. I remember as a kid always coming up with names for the characters I drew. That would be the first thing I did. The look and personality of the character was always based off of the name I'd pick for them.
Where are you located?
I'm from Bergen County, New Jersey.
Day job or full-time artist?
I'm a graphic artist/sign illustrator for a national chain of organic food markets. So in other words, I paint organic strawberries and grass-fed cows for a living.
Any random things you want people to know about you?
Three things you should know about me: 1) I would eat a slice of extra cheese pizza for every meal, every day, if it probably wouldn't kill me within the year. 2) I'm terrified of shower drains. 3) I'm a huge fan of stand-up comedy and hope to one day build up enough courage to actually try it.
