I was really excited to be asked to participate and hope I did justice to David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim’s work. Like most people in designer plush (and toys), I wouldn’t be where I am without their trailblazing.
Bran spanky new to the Etsy shop, 5x7 prints! Super high quality giclee prints on heavy art paper. I have a “slightly obscure fandom” theme for the moment: Bravest Warriors, Cabin Pressure, and the cult of the fluffy chicken ;) (Sold unframed, but you can get these at Michael’s for cheap.) I do not have very many of any of these.
The (Fluffy) Chicken and the (Bedevilled) Egg: It just felt right to put these guys up together. Took me a while but I’ve got these very special limited plush available for the online community! Both numbered handmade editions, very small runs. I’m also offering a few of the “Believe” fluffy chicken 5x7 prints individually.
Fluffy Chicken (C2E2 Exclusive) on Etsy: only TWO left! This is your big chance to have your very own official bird of Tumblr. Comes with “believe” 5x7 print. (Print only)
Bedevilled Egg (Wondercon Exclusive) on Etsy: a few of the regulars left; and I’ve still got the one and only Angelic Chase so snap it up before I decide to keep it ;)
FYI, in this case, the eggs came before the chicken. ;)
Slice of Sassy Pie. Made from anti-pill fleece, combination of wool and acrylic felt hand sewn fruit and whipped cream. Measures about 6.5” long x 4.5” across back and 4” tall with toppings (a bit bigger than life).
I will be expanding flavors, but pies with fruit pieces in them, etc., are a more complicated endeavor (don’t want to just change the color and declare it cherry). But I am open to flavor suggestions.
After a whole lot of popular demand, I’ve brought back dandelions; in a monster version! (Okay, so I ran out of white fur, but I prototyped these guys a while back and thought it was cute in colors.) I sold some at C2E2 but I just finished these! All are about 11” tall in their pot. Stems and leaves are poseable, removable from pot if you want to “replant” it. Faux fur can be smoothed down or fluffed up as you prefer.
This weekend! If you are in NY or the vicinity, head up to Beacon, NY. Apparently they have at *least* five things to do; and one of them is this soft sculpture/plush gallery show, Stitched, which is going to be AWESOME. Hosted at the gallery of the amazing magazine Clutter, and curated by the equally amazing Lana Crooks (whose piece I want to steal). Linkage:FB invite if you’re going / Sign up for the preview list for first dibs on works / direct link to the show after it opens
This is my piece! His name is Raziel and he is the first “Celestial Tier” Sprite. So I showered him with fanciness, including three pairs of magnetic wings, a crown with a fake opal I made, and a light-up galaxy in his stomach. 14” tall with a 22” wingspan, and more different materials and beads/sequins/rhinestones than you can shake a stick at; including a bunch of stuff that doesn’t photograph, like custom iridescent glitter eyes with stars in them and a handmade “opal”.
Honestly I’ve never had so many things inexplicably go wrong! He must have been making sure I gave him the attention he deserved. But he’s on his way, and I’m getting used to spending my days and long (LONG) nights trying to put right what isn’t yet done. My only guide on this journey is Al Net-hulu-zon… uh *cough* *exit stage right*
I am A. Darkly and I am a plush artist, a writer, a photographer, a retired cosplayer, an artist, and a geek. I'm roughly the age of TWO average Tumblrites combined but everyone thinks I look 16. :\
I'm new to actually posting on Tumblr and still getting the hang of it. I'll mostly be posting my artwork/plush, but will pass along cool stuff too! I'm almost 100% SFW.
