ABOUT THE ART
Love her or hate her, there’s no denying her seductive powers and her ubiquity. She is pervasive. Her legend is eternal.
The Siren rises from the depths of the Sea, singing her songs to lure sailors, pirates and hipsters to the coffee shop by the shore. If you listen now you can hear her calling your name…."Pumpkin Spice Latte for Rico! Rico!” Accompanied by her Sea Serpents this Siren stands Tall at 6inches, 8inches Wide & 3inches Deep.
The First place the Siren was sighted was Seattle, rising from The Puget Sound! This Classic Green with Silver highlights is the obvious Original Colorway and comes packaged in a glorious Java Jacket encased classy package. With the Edition checked on the side you’ll never get your toys mixed up. Safely guarded with foam and marking her tomb with amazing and subtle artwork, this temptress will be bundled with a Venti White Metal Tumbler adorning the Siren logo & metal straw.

My Name is Oasim Karmieh, I have been working as a 3d artist for over a decade now. I have always loved toys, and like every kid, Lego was a huge part of my life, and it grew from there.
I have had the pleasure to work with clients all over the world. I've worked on some fantastic projects from Animated films, animated short films, commercials, interactive iPad books.
But ever since I became a dad, the idea of starting my own business was floating in the back of my head. I wanted something that will make me jump out of bed to start working and forget about time.
It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to pursue as a business. And the answer was staring me right in the face, my office was filled with figurines, from Legos to wooden toys, to resin Laughing Buddhas, art toys and collectables.
I enjoy learning what makes a character great, and how to push my poses and expressions to get more out of my designs, Long story short I decided to start a small Toy Design studio and create toys that I would love to have on my shelf.
The first toy that I designed was Batsy, and the amount of love and attention; this toy received was overwhelming, and it gave me the boost that I needed to start Karmieh Designer Toys.
