It took me by surprise that this idea of making toys out of real people had such a good response through my customers.
I’m starting to get more and more orders and it gets more and more fun.
It’s pretty simple, I get few pictures of that person and I make a mini version of him or her, a funny soft toy that keeps some of that persons features and expression.
Basically I’m like a cartoon filter in a photo app 🙂
Most of them are available at ROD Carturesti as well.
Such joy to knit small accessories like beanies and scarves for these little Apple Bugs. I’m addicted to doing it already .
These little fellows are around 15cm tall, made of printed cotton and the big eyes are drawn by hand with textile colors.
Cateva dintre ele, 5 mai exact, vor merge la “Noaptea alba a creatorilor si designerilor de produs 2014” de pe 20 Septembrie de la Institutul Francez.
Restul plus urmatoarele vor ajunge la un nou magazin din Bucuresti cu care voi incepe colaborarea de la 1 Septembrie si de asemenea, la Rod – Carturesti.
The latest minies from my oven:
I love this striped fabric that I had in my studio for quite some time and I didn’t know what to do with it. Well, I think it makes out the cutest Dots with Wings and some cool shaped Bunnies.
The softest pink fabric is still something I can’t get enough of.
These ones will arrive at ROD@Cărturești today, too.
I’ve just finished a bunch of new monsters, some MoustaBunnies – as you might suspect they are bunnies with moustaches , and some new Winged Dots, in the next pictures you’ll see just one, the sweetest soft pink with a neon horn !
Soon they’ll arrive at ROD@Cărturești
The Winged Dots are a series of characters that I do for a while and I still like a bunch. Their simplicity is something I care about and I want to keep in all my future characters, they are fun and somehow unexpected and they always produce a first reaction that’s usually a laugh. They are small size monsters that would fit in many environments. Try them!
