baby jesus in the hiz-ouse

So, a few mid-week updates are in order, I think.

Here's a ladybug I needle-felted a few weeks back, as a replacement gift for Sarah and Erin, whose Scott C. buttons got stolen by greedy mailmen. This time I taped the envelopes shut, and put a warning: Stealing makes Baby Jesus cry. Both ladybugs arrived intact. So, a shout-out to my homie Baby Jesus for helpin' make that happen.

And now, for the Weirdest Thing I've Seen All Week, technically Last Week:

One of our new favorite friends over at!

And on a special WTF ALERT: The Cleveland Show is awful. Flat-out awful. They took the least funny character on Family Guy and gave him his own show, with ANTROPOMORPHIC BEARS as his new next-door neighbors. And they have Greek accents. WTF.

big ole week

Big week, I got featured on Drawn! on Monday, and just yesterday Shannon over at Rainbow Fabrics featured my plush owls (3rd store down!)

I'll also have some work in the new Ringling Made-By store, run by Nancy O'Neil. I believe it opens next month, so if you're in that neck of the woods, look out for some of my older work, and some new keychains I'm sending along soon.

This guy, name of Bosco, is also up in the store as of today!

My newst Deer Girl, with an antler modification. Hope you like her.

And in a new segment I'm going to call "The weirdest thing I've seen this week", here's a Czech song about Jozin (Joseph.)
Thanks to Justin, for the link.

Dolly the Deer Girl

This is the plush I've been working on for a little over a week now- stayed up late last night to finish her. I named her Dolly, and she's a deer girl (and yes, I know female deer don't have antlers.) I plan on working in this style on and off when I'm not making funny foods and monsters and simpler pieces. I really like her, maybe because she looks vaguely tired or pissed off.

She started off as this drawing I did at Joe's Diner.

The arms and legs and the line details in the hair are machine-sewn, but all the rest is hand-sewn, thus why it took so long to complete. The fabric I bought from hushbabyco on Esty, and the felt and other baubles are just bits I've collected over the years. Her eyes are safety plastic.

This particular doll won't be up for sale, as I'm keeping her to love for-ev-er, but I'll have some other ones up for sale by the end of the month, including a man with a giant moustache!

baby owl giveaway!

EDIT: Mare MacIntosh won, so congrats! I'll hold another giveaway next month, so keep your eyes pealed for it!

Howdy! In the awesome spirit of, um, early September, I'm running a giveaway this week for this little guy! All you have to do is leave a comment with your name and email and it'll be entered into a random drawing.

On Friday at noon, I'll pick a winner (I'm going assign each comment a number, and use a random number generator) and announce it THIS Friday at noon-thirty (both here, and on my twitter.) Then I'll contact the winner and send them this cute little owl!

In the spirit of fairness, one comment per person, plzkthnx.

Look at that cute little face! Doesn't it just say "Win Me!" ?

gratuitious man boob-age

So, Halloween is just around the corner (not really, but shut up) and I'm going to dress my cat, Oliver, and myself, as Ewoks. So I did this little piece to just give you a small taste of my vision. BEHOLD!

Also, More to Love is starting to wrap up, and let me just say, I'm glad Anna is gone. Basically because I cannot stop making fun of her face. And when she says OH MY GOD, she sounds like what I imagine a harpy would. The rest of the girls are equal parts boring and pathetic, so I don't really care who wins. That's Tali below, sharing the frame with Luke and his super boobs.

Also, so this post isn't a total waste, here's some new owls, and a tiki named Big Tom, which is up in the store.
