It's been awhile since i have posted over here, but i wanted to share these new pieces of art that i am extremely proud of...

Now that I am back home from the show, I wanted to share my contributions to the Monster Art Rally show for Gallery 1988 SF. The plush figures are hand-made and were done in collaboration with Lina Britton, and they look fantastic in person. The plush figures are her artistic interpretation in plush format of my characters. They really raise the bar for what plush figures are (in my opinion) because they have features like embroidered eyes/facial features and have a very polished feel to them. I am super proud of what she was able to accomplish with these.

the pen and ink pieces and the plush characters all tell a story together and work in collaboration with one another. there is a story behind these pieces/figures, and if you are interested you can read about it here: http://forums.kidrobot.com/viewtopic.php?t=118681

now, first off are the pen and ink pieces. they are from the "fred's dream" series of pictures and the 2 pieces together reflect the story previously mentioned. here they are:

Title: Fred's Dream Part 4, Section A (Entangled)
Medium: Pen and ink and acrylic paint on watercolor paper

and now I would like to introduce you to the cast of plush characters.
