The Dirt On Me
Pass Me A Note


Mental Malfunction Studio is basically made up of the one me, Derek Miller. I've been a sculptor of toys, action figures and collectibles for the last thirteen years. All of it done for other companies and studios; in house or freelance. The Cheeky Meenkeys are the first property of my own that I've been able to produce. The first Cheeky Meenkey, Moony, started out as a gag gift in my nephews Christmas stocking several years ago. Then I drafted it into service as a party favor for the guests at our New Year's Eve party. They seemed to like him. So for the next year's party I made a new Cheeky Meenkey for everyone to take home. And so on to this day. Some people came to the party just to make sure they got a Meenkey. They went over so well as I gave them away for free, that I finally decided to take the plunge and see if people would pay for them.

Once I had the Cheeky Meenkeys in my hands, I decided to go ahead and start working on a line of busts, based on mythical/legendary characters from around the world, that I had been wanting to do for awhile. I've always been a medieval/monster kind of guy at heart, so I'm always excited about working on these types of characters.

A little about me personally, I have a wonderful wife, Jacie, who has supported me all the while through my inherently uncertain freelance career. And likewise the rest of my family: my grandparents, mother, brother, sister, and In-laws. I also have 5 nephews and 2 nieces. One niece and nephew see me mainly as a tackling dummy. Another niece and nephew see me mainly as a dummy.  Not exactly sure how my true nature can be that apparent to a couple of teens, but what do you do. I also have a cat in my house which vexes me at every turn. And I'm a big fan of the Indianapolis Colts. Do the Blue!

Thanks for stopping in to!

Take care everybody!
