I create figurines using masking tape and Sharpies. I enjoy Pokemon characters the most. The first pieces I ever made were out of clay when I was a kid in school. It struck me that masking tape would be a good material to use to create figurines. I use Sharpie to color the figures. The first masking tape figurine I ever made was Pikachu.

He is a very resourceful individual and learned to make them on his own using masking tape.
