"Aminals" Films on National Geographic WILD

Earlier this year I was asked by the friendly folks of Mindfruit Studios in LA to create three plush puppets--an angler fish, a horseshoe crab and a peacock spider.  I designed the plush creatures based off their concept drawings and made them to be "faceless" as their eyes and mouths were animated on top of the puppets in post-production.  Mindfruit used the puppets, and some beautifully styled sets, to create "Aminals"--three short films which just debuted on National Geographic's Wild cable tv channel on a special late night show for grown-ups called "Wild After Dark."

They turned out super sweet and funny! Click on the still images below to link to each of the three videos if you'd like to see!

September Shop Update and Crafty Bastards!!

I'm excited to announce I'm in a bit of a crazy state right now 
as I prep for the best craft show of all time....Crafty Bastards!! 
I'm pleased as punch that I've been accepted back again this year, 
and can't wait to see all the friendly familiar (and new!) faces. 
DC shoppers really know how to bring the love! 

Find the Cotton Monster creatures (and me) at Crafty Bastards October 1 & 2 from 10am-5pm
outside under the big white tents at Union Market. Want to come both days (cause lets face it, one day just isn't enough time to see it all!) use this special coupon code: 
VENDOR2016 to get a $6 Weekend Pass! 

My booth at Crafty Bastards a few years ago! 
And for those of you in other parts of the world, unable to make it to the show, I took some time away from the sewing studio last week to do some photographing and editing...I've just listed a ton of new work into my online shop!  I'll be doing another update after Crafty Bastards as well, but as you probably know, since my work is one of a kind, better snag one quick if you fall in love!
