In 2003, tucked away in a tiny living room, doubling as a sewing studio, a team of three friends pooled together their imaginations, added some elbow grease and started on a 'monster' adventure that would change their lives forever. Founded by Adam Dunn, Rhya Tamasauskas and Bliss Man, the Monster Factory began as a collaborative art project that saw the creation of the original six monster characters, known as the Heartbreakers. The response to the launch of their first designs was so overwhelming, that this simple creative experiment swiftly transformed into a successful business venture. Today, the number of monsters has grown from 6 to over 100 characters, and the list of names just keeps getting bigger, with waves of new monster being released twice a year! The original creators are still involved in all aspects of the monster business, with the additions of a few other key creatives to help keep the monster empire growing. As for the studio, long gone are the days of having business meetings on the living room couch crammed around a coffee table, the Monster Factory is now located in the bustling heart of downtown Toronto. It is a vibrant and friendly studio space, with a monster packed show room, open to the public 5 days a week. So please stop by and say hello and who knows maybe you will meet a monster, and start your very own monster story!
