super owly mania + More to Love

All three of these super plushie pals are up in the store, so check 'em out! First is Pug, then Bim, and then the fabulous Pumpkin!

Also, is anyone watching More to Love? Because it's awesome in it's complete horrible-ness! I know that's mean, but whatever. Some of these girls are turbo pathetic, and it has nothing to do with their weight. Also, she's a model. Right.

felt like lurve

One of Justin's toys- I got my new camera, so I was practicing taking pictures. It's a sea monster hopper guy!

Dino par-tay. I'm trying to get that depth of field bizness going.

Cool spider we saw outside Justin's apartment complex. He was very hard to shoot, as the camera wanted to autofocus on the plant behind him.

This is Bilius Ballsworth Ballington- my first needle-felted friend. He's a cardinal- I got a kit on needle-felting from fancytiger on Etsy.

This is old, but not old-old. It's a plush I made for a co-worker of her husband (who is also a co-worker). I haven't made a ton of dolls, and my first try at him turned out something close to HORRIBLE, so I completely restarted, and decided to stylize him more. Realistic dolls, in my opinion, just end up in that uncanny valley realm where it's just creep-tastic. So yeah.

More pictures soon, and expect some fabric owls up in the store today/tonight!

FABRIC OWLS = awesome

Taken with photobooth at work, because my sweet sweet Canon Rebel XS hasn't arrived yet.

New owl plushies, with fabric backs, made with love (and my sewing machine!) Expect them in the store mid-next week or so!

More updates, soon. Promiiiise.

Help, plzkthnx?

Howdy. These are some color roughs I did for a dresser I rescued from certain garbage-y doom. Which one do you like? I really can't decide, and it's been driving me bonkers all last night/this morning. Just let me know in a comment or @reply to @trishans on twitter. Thanks! I'll post the results later.

Weird Al released starring... JJ employees!

One of the perks, again, of working for JibJab is being a ready-to-use actor. This video in particular is super awesome because not only is there a StarringYou! version on our site, but we're baked into the actual video!!

One of our animators, Mike! All fear the CNR.

Devin is broken! He was also the body-double for Charles Nelson Reilly!

Alan and Andy are dead bodies.

I was swallowed whole whilst driving about town...

Alan was just munching on a sub, and BAM! LASERS!

And Devin, Dave, and Justin all run for their lives!

I also worked as the body double for Meg White. EDIT: (I'm drumming, they put Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz' head on my body.) Thanks @algonacchick for the info!

And here's an animated GIF I made, woot.
