Super-Kitsch!



I'm going to blame this one on the contemporary craft revival craze. I have a strange need to include kitschy hand-sewn animal toys in my sketches at the moment. Since these guys are in a pond they needed floaties. Everyone knows plush toys can't swim very well - that's just common sense.

Just a little study at this point, eventually there will be a girl waist-deep in the water too.

OMG they are so awesome! I love them! I wish all my friends were made of plush... maybe Squiggle would let me cuddle her... but probably not.

Posted 2:40am? Lissie!

As soon as I saw this I said "aww". When I read about the floaties I was overwhelmed with cuteness.

I'm sure you get this all the time, but you are a great artist.
