I had this idea in mind my for a long time. I wanted to work on some bunnies inspired by my pet bunny, the cute Haiku who stood by me sadly just for 6 years.
It took me by surprise when she went away but this idea got stuck into my heard lingering until I’ve found a way to get it out.
Also I was planing for a while to try this new style in which I would hand stitch all the face elements. It’s so fun and it has endless possibilities and it also adds even more cuteness to my toys.
These balls of cuddling beauties, cotton-candy-honey-bunnies are the result.
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 images are not mine but were taken by the photographers present at the event on the 19th and 20th of December at Made in RO Christmas Fair 2015 @ Impact Hub Bucharest.
I had fun exhibiting so many of my monsters and I was pretty proud of my big display.
Thank you for the pictures! Thank you for visiting !
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!
