Moss Rabbit is my entry for the Toy2R Qeeology 2.5 show on May 7th. The show features custom 2.5″ Qee’s by 70 artists all over the world and im really happy to be taking part. Lots of pictures, including work-in-progress shots…
Monsters have to start somewhere! These monsters have just been hatched, and are ready to be adopted by you. Each is handmade by Chelsea in the Love and a Sandwich studio, USA. Now in the shop!
You can instantly spot the work Chelsea of Love And A Sandwich, her happy furry colourful monsters with BIG personalities will put an instant smile on your face! I have been seriously in love with this girls work since I traded a purple bear plush for her bunwich in 2008 and am now super duper excited to be selling her Monster Baby plushes through the A little Stranger shop.
How does it feel to make toys for a living? Feels great! haha. I do have to put in a lottt of hours and hard work for it to pay off money-wise, but I just remind myself that I’m doing something I love, and things could be worse! I definitely love the hours. I can sleep in and work late, which I love doing. This wasn’t really something I saw myself doing when I was doing art when I was younger, but it just sort of fell into place and works better for me than any other medium could.
He’s cute and he’s small, he’s Cavey! Coming soon to the shop, Cavey is a new toy design from A Little Stranger. He’s been a secret project of mine for a couple of months and now he’s just about ready to be released into the wild. Check out his website www.heycavey.com!
Here’s a little sneak peek of my custom for Toy2R‘s Qeeology 2.5 show, part of the Toy2R 15th Anniversary World Tour. I’ve been really inspired by vintage toys and facemoulds lately, my friend leant me an AMAZING book called Happy Bunny Kitty Pony (i need to buy myself a copy and quit hoggin’ hers!) and i’ve based this little guy on some of the cute/creepy bunnies in there. He’s a little further along than this now but i’ll post more pictures when he’s done – a girls got to have some secrets right?
I am pleased to present a new plush! He has been a work in progress for a couple of months and im very very happy to be adding him to the shop today! As with all my plush art the Chicken Dragon is unique and never to be repeated. He’s 10″ tall with solid glass eyes and sculpted face, teeny weeny translucent teeth, and is available in the A Little Stranger shop Edit: Sorry he’s now sold!
I am proud and excited to say that my Red Plush Dunny figure made the front page of the KRonikle! Read the article here. Big shouts to Kidrobot for featuring my work <3
To celebrate the opening of the new A Little Stranger Shop I’ve added two new prints, White Monster and Tentacle Hair. Each is a large 16.5×11.5″ print each limited to 20 prints. Professionally printed, high quality giclee prints on archival acid-free matte heavyweight paper, using archival pigment inks.
New to the shop are Bobbins, Series I. Series I consists of four solid wood french knitting bobbins, each one has been handpainted in acrylic and then sealed with layers of protective gloss for a long lasting finish and shine. This idea has been in my head for quite some time, and i’m really pleased to add this new item to the new shop!
